Mafia Debate: You should not be allowed to play on D1 without knowing your role/alignment

FourTrouble

This is a debate about mafia, that game we play in the forums. Wikipedia defines the game as follows: Mafia, also known as Werewolf, is a party game created by Dmitry Davidoff in 1986 modelling a conflict between an informed minority, the mafia, and an uninformed majority, the innocents. At the start of the game, each player is secretly assigned a role affiliated with one of these teams. The game has two alternating phases: night, during which the mafia may covertly "murder"...

My phone was stolen, not 'Given away'

JKboii
Resphe

A few days ago, my 'friend' said he could fix my phone, because the battery was swollen. So I lent it to him, and since I had to give him my password, he hard reset my phone, with all of my family photos and storage. He then paid 50 dollars to get it fixed, and put HIS account on it. He said if I wanted it back, I'd have to pay, so I got his money, and then he said it's not for sale. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but can I have some feedback so I know what to do?!?!...

space is an intangetable reality

One of the first people to embrace Einstein's ideas was his former teacher, Hermann Minkowski (1864-1909).

On the other hand space and time taken together form a more robust entity: 'Henceforth space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will...

The World Would Be Much Better Without Religion

David12N
byaka2013

I am generally interested in the answer. I have decided to choose Con because I think the world would not be much different than now. I would argue that many of the common reasons cited against religion may not be accurate. I do think there is often strong views held on both sides that do not move the debate forward. I am not arguing that religion never does wrong but that the negative impact on the world may be overly exaggerated and some of the good downplayed or ignored. If you can cite actua...
