Should sacrificing ceremony's/killing festivals be banned?

Jess.hartley
Tough

Is it necessary to kill hundreds and thousands of animals? For what reason? No reason. Preposterous you may tell me but it's not it happens all the time, annually. The people that do this don't benefit, neither do the animals. It's gobstopping how many times it's already happened and how many more times it's bound to happen. It's not illegal and no one suffers the consequences. Apart from the poor victims, once again, the animals. People use excuses such as "it's religion" when it's not. I've ha...

Science definitively proves Creationism to be factual

FrozenLichBox
PericIes

Science clearly proves that Creationism is, in fact, very real. To prove my argument, I will make four points (out of many possibilities, for the sake of expidency): 1. The argument that "nature" has the power to create life is ludicrous. My evidence for this argument is derived from logic (the science of reason): If pure chance can create life, than why can't humans? We are an intelligent race which can synthesise chemicals and clone animals, so why can't we produce the protien...

Resolved: Adolescents ought to have the right to make autonomous medical decisions

cosborn

I stand in the firmest affirmation of the resolution "Adolescents ought to have the right to make autonomous medical decisions." First, I would like to define a few terms: Adolescents: 13-17 years of age Ought: Necessary (Cambridge) Autonomous: having the right or power to govern itself (Merriam-Webster) I affirm for these reasons: Health and wellness are inalienable rights. People are the most aware of what is best for their body. There are already precedents set for adolescents. Y...
