College is a place to learn, but not all people can go, and people can actually save money and buy thing for themselves or there family. Also so people don't have to worry about loans. I did some research and the government would pay for the teachers and supplies for the colleges....

The Cosmological Argument for God is a bad argument and people need to stop using it

extian

I used to believe in God, and one of the last arguments that kept me in theism was the Cosmological Argument. There are a couple of versions of this argument, but the most popular one is the Kalam Cosmological Argument. It goes as follows: Premise 1: Whatever begins to exist has a cause. Premise 2: The Universe began to exist. Conclusion: Therefore, the Universe had a cause. The argument is valid, but I now realize it is not sound. The first premise can be rejected because we can find ev...

Is the Bible against women's rights?

foxxhajti
FollowerofChrist1955

The Bible has multiple quotes against the rights of women. In my opinion, it is a pretty outdated book reflecting the ideologies and philosophies of society during that era. Some quotes from the Bible which reflect this: 1) "You shall not covet your neighbor"s house. You shall not covet your neighbor"s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." Exodus 20:17 - Neither men nor women should be considered anyone's properties by any mean...

is Graffiti Art?

Is Graffiti Art? Yes, it is. Grafitti is art and it takes time, patience and artistic skill. It kills time and even though it is against the law and it damages buildings, you can buy a building or highway and do it there and you are doing it to your property. Still not enough reasons. It is cool and gives people something to look at....

Do playing violent video games affect your mental health

DiligentSpace1293
akaRay

Yes, violent video games are something that can affect your mental health. Violent video games show gore, murder of people and animals, usage and abuse of drugs, alcohol, racial slurs, nudity and foul language. These things can cause serious problems, for example when a player is in rage if they died or lost a level they may slam their fist on a table or even more extreme smash their controller to bits and pieces. When playing a game you are so immersed into it you may not pay attention to thing...
