Cloning

gibsonm496

The "Ash in a Coma Theory"

Crayzman2297
Chronos

I believe that the "Ash in a Coma" theory points to an entirely possible, deep sub-plot to the Pokemon television series. I challenge somebody to disprove the theory itself. If you are unfamiliar with the theory, you can read it at this link: http://www.scribd.com/doc/24299239/Pokemon-The-Ash-is-Really-in-a-Coma-Theory Rules for this debate are as follows: It is to be civil. It is to be friendly. Acceptable sources include the theory itself, as well as any and all television episode...

mattrodstrom
popculturepooka

The Ontological Argument is seemingly one of the more popular arguments which Rationalistic theists like to employ in trying to prove the existence of God.

It has been...
