Phoenix61397

This debate is impossible to accept. Comment if you wish to debate. Creationism: The belief that holds evolution to be false and promotes a literal interpretation of the Biblical Genesis creation story. I would like to clarify the resolution.

philosurfer

ALS Bucket Challenge is a Waste of Water & Time! MOST folks have opted to dump water instead of donating money. That's how it works. I'm sure the statistics wouldn't even be close regarding ice water dumping vs. donations. The ratios would be sad. Further, why not use dirty sewer water? Why use fresh water? There is a fresh water shortage in the world! I have water restrictions where I live! If you want to help, post a video of yourself donating the money rather than dumping...

Redistribution of Wealth

Contra

Focusing first on your claim that the redistribution of wealth (or, more generally, resources) would somehow inherently destroy all incentive to work on the part of those from whom resources were taken, this is just patently untrue. It is a well-known historical fact of economics that, even when corporations are taxed at supposedly exorbitant rates (e.g., about 90% under FDR), American industry nevertheless thrives, CEOs still make out like bandits, the populace as a whole is no less likely to p...

Islam Is The True Religion

Kc1999

WE ARE ONE, THERE IS ONLY 1 GOD <----------------------By Ruth Pumarejo *Worth the read* Islam is the way of life. We have the Torah, The Bible and the Quran. One misconception is that the Bible is not "instant" Scripture and it wasn't all written down around the same time. Instead, the books of the Bible were written over a lengthy period of time by different people inspired by God. All of "the books" were from God. The Quran says that Firm belief that all of them were revealed from God and tha...
