Is there a god?

UnhookedSchnook
Edril

Hello, So the age old, common debate,"is there a god?". Currently I believe no, however if there is more, solid, supporting evident I am all ears. As we all should know there are many religions, with many different gods. So what makes one god more real than another? Religions merely provided a simple and unexplained answer to our creation. The only 'evidence' given to us are believers stories and a book from many years ago. Time and time again science has disproved such cases that were publis...

Only Those of a Stable and Adequate Income Should be Allowed to Bear Children

mobshark
Therapist

Nowadays it seems getting pregnant is more like a sport than a privilege. All sorts of unfit people are birthing children in not-so-good circumstances. I firmly believe bearing children should be a right given to those only of high education and an income to support both themselves and a growing family....

Has Obama been beneficial for the United States?

Brian1813
bballcrook21

During his two terms of presidency, Obama has given us many wonderful things. He had created a healthcare system that is universal and stays with you even if you lose your job. He prevented the Bush Depression that was obliterating America by killing 800,000 jobs a day with his 'stimulus package'. Not only did that create 2.1 million new jobs, but it also boosted our economy by 3.5%. Our president issued an executive order that provided a haven for those immigrants without documentation yet, who...

GNU/Linux is way better than Mac OS.

SmartSoda
DonaldTrump

GNU/Linux, also known as Linux, is by far the world-leading operating system. Unlike Mac OS, GNU/Linux is completely free, non-commerical, and open source, and is backed by a large non-profit community that relies on just donations. GNU/Linux is the fastest operating system. GNU/Linux comes in many distributions, such as Debian GNU/Linux, Ubuntu, Fedora, Linux Mint, Arch Linux, elementary OS, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, CentOS, Red Hat, the phone OS Android, Chrome (Chromium) OS, and many more. Many major...

An individual chooses to be homosexual

YoungLawyer
Envisage

Firstly, let me state that I am not against homosexual people. I welcome them; I am tolerant of differences. Secondly, I have befriended those who I have met, and I have treated them as humans should be treated, after all, one sexual orientation doesn't make him/her less of a human. Lastly, I am about equality, hence, I support the recent Supreme Court decision on gay marriage, because I believe in the fair treatment of all. Le...

Animal testing

Angelxm
OpinionPersom121

Animals do not have rights, therefore it is acceptable to experiment on them. Animals do not have the cognitive ability or moral judgment that humans do and because of this they have been treated differently than humans by nearly every culture throughout recorded history. If we granted animals rights, all humans would have to become vegetarians, and hunting would need to be outlawed....
