Should depression be treated as seriously as physical ailments?

StormySkies
gabesnyds

I'm starting this debate again, since Aerogant's account was closed so he can no longer bother me. In many schools, depression and other mental illness are not treated as seriously as physical sickness and injury (such as the flu, or a broken leg). Despite the level of depression or anxiety a student is having, they are still obligated to go to school, which can be seriously detrimental to the mental health, and eventually even physically unhealthy. The same can go for adults as well, when...

Jesus Claimed to be God

BennyW
khizr

I have heard quite a few people argue that Jesus never claimed to be God. Maybe those exact words never came out of his mouth but I will argue that if we look at what he said his intention was clearly that he did claim to be God. I will be using the protestant cannon of the Bible, while I don't think the Catholic cannon contradicts this I am not familiar enough with it to use it. Anything outside the Bible is prohibited, so no Gnostic Gospels or outside text,we are going solely on what is credit...

Rehabilitation is more efficient than imprisonment.

GeminiContractor
tonton17

Currently, the legal system operates using a "trash containment" or "trash incineration" approach. This approach seems to use a lot of money, and since they are throwing so many people into prisons, they seem to be running out of room for people in those prisons. https://www.aclu.org/blog/criminal-law-reform-prisoners-rights/senate-hearing-explores-exorbitant-costs-incarceration If the legal system were to adopt a "trash recycling" approach, there would be a large amount of money saved and...
