Women should not be punished for sunbathing topless.

brian_eggleston

It's sexist and it's wrong. While a man on a beach can take his shirt off and run about willy-nilly, in repressive countries such as Saudi Arabia, the Islamic Republic of Iran, North Korea and the United States of America, women who strip to the waist are liable to be arrested and charged with indecent exposure. So why is that? Both men and women have nipples so that can't be the reason and a lot of fat blokes have bigger jubblies than some slim women do so that can't be the excuse either....

Humans taste great

kevsext

I have been eating other people since I was about 12 years old. It has been a tradition in my family for many years. The muscle on a 150 pounder is nice and tender when you cook it. Just thinking of it makes my mouth water. I'm not sure if there can even be an opposition to this but if someone does accept this challenge I thank them....

Contention 1: If a government is not powerful and strong, it will not have the capacity to rule its citizens and enforce the law with an iron fist to prevent crime. According to the United Nations World Crime Survey, countries entrenched in turmoil like Columbia and South Africa have homicide rates 63 and 51 per 100,000, respectively. Compare this to the homicide rate of the US, "5.5 homicides per 100,000 people." Countries that are in turmoil obviously do not have a strong government that can e...

Rebel flags should be banned.

James.ticknor

The rebel flag is a piece of history. Just because it represented the South doesn't mean that a simple flag is bad. It is like a swastica. It was on allied airplanes. (the public thought this was great). Then Hitler made it into his own. Now people think it's the worst thing ever. It's a flag. Often it is not even in context with the South...

Jesus the Christ is Probaby the Result of Creative Writing.

JustCallMeTarzan

The proposition on offer is that Jesus the Christ is probably the result of creative writing. By way of clarification, the proposition is NOT that Jesus the Nazarene did not exist, but rather that the writers of the New Testament exaggerated the life of Jesus the Nazarene, added components of mythology, and used pieces of the Old Testament to piece together a picture of Jesus that was in line with their personal preferences. There are several notions that support this claim: 1) Jesus never...

Abortion

FemaleGamer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsknXsm2eHo No nation devoted to individual liberty should force women back to the days of back-alley abortions. No women should have to bear a child against thier will. Free-will. That's what I stand for. No, no. That would be terrible, un-ethical and generally wrong. Women with free-will? God-forbid! The fact is that women will always still desire to have an abortion, which some may follow through with. This will never end abortion. You have no control over...

God exists

the universe bears many signs of being created for mankind. earth is positioned at just he right distance away from the sun. a little closer it would be too hot a little further too cold, we are in the right position. the elements that man requires the most are the most abundant. the air mixture is also a perfect mix of nitrogen and oxygen for our survival. these are proofs that the universe was created with design...
