Definition of idolatry: Princeton.edu the worship of idols Worship: dictionary.com adoring reverence or regard My argument is simple. When one uses a crucifix as a physical symbol of faith, t...

The Human race is flawed in many obvious ways. I will begin the argument with this approach -It seems to diminish logic and reason all too often for it's better. By doing this humans take in account only how their lives would be affected by such actions at the very moment of thought. Even though humans realize this as truth this is still practiced and is considered human nature. With that i will like to add in consideration the current state of humanity: We are governed in a way which...

Excepting harms caused solely by the existence of the laws prohibiting prostitution, no person is being harmed by the practice of prostitution. 3) Laws rega...

I would first like to say that this is my first debate on this site. I hope there are those out there that meet my instigation with mindful inquiry. Who knows, maybe I'll think differently in the end. To beleive in everlasting life is to provide an alternative for death, or to create an extension of life after death. Since death is a proven and inevitable fact, and everlasting life is a conception, to beleive in immortality is to be in denial. denial is to be afraid to face something in suc...
