There Exists A Non-Mental Reality

Rational_Thinker9119
GoOrDin

Most people believe in a non-mental reality... However, I don't think that these people really have any valid justification. This debate is a challenge to anyone who believes that they can demonstrate that a reality exists outside of mind (or, at least that a reality outside of mind is the most plausible explanation for our experiences). The burden of proof will not be shared, as I have defended my position enough in debate. I would like to see some positive arguments for a non-mental reali...

The media sets an unrealistic expectation on body image for teenagers. Most fashion industries utilize media to garner viewership and consumership on their products. Industries select models based on their physical apearances to promote their product.

should people help drug users

coolkid1231
intellectuallyprimitive

I think people should help drug users because they need help and who is going to help them. I watched a video and people tryed to help them and some addicts stopped, but they allowed the people to use the drugs for free so i think they are just egging them on so they will continue the addiction to nicotine and other hard drugs. These are my contentions. I look forward to seeing yours may the debate be a good one....
