JLiberty02134

To clarify, I will be arguing that the government's "forgiveness" of consumer debt through bankruptcy is wrong. Arguments will be focused on Ch. 7 bankruptcies. The First Round will be for acceptance only and any additional definitions. Libertarianism - A political philosophy that believes people should be allowed to do and say what they want, so long as it doesn't infringe on the rights of another person, without interference from the government. Ch. 7 Bankruptcy - The legal process b...

Young Earth creationism fails to address cosmic spans of time

morlock
masterdrave

The typical YEC argument against traditional science is aimed at biological and evolutionary processes and as such fails to address cosmic timelines such as the age of the Universe, the Sol System or the Milky Way galaxy. Modern scientific methods all agree the following... -The age of the universe is ~ 13.7B years old. -The Milky way is ~ 12.7B years old -Our star ~ 4.6B years old Are there any Young Earth Creationists that contest these numbers with extra-biblical sources?...

I think that the Twitter hash tag "GamerGate" is necessary for this industry to move forward in ethics. And anyone who opposes it based off of anti-GamerGate propaganda that says "GamerGate is for the harassment of women in the industry" is simply mis-informed....

Do you believe in the existence of a new world order?

CyberOptics
SkepticalDefender

It's been a personal hobby of mine to researching history and I've looked into the Bavarian Illuminati, and there is strong evidence to support that this group lived on and is really running the world today. Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Illuminati, was a former Jesuit priests. Just a couple years before the formation of this secret society, the Catholic Church suppressed the Jesuit order because they have been implemented in political maneuvering and economic exploitation of that time fram...

Gay conversion therapy is wrong and should be made illegal

AnneBB
labarum

I believe that gay conversion therapy, also referred to as "reparative therapy", should be illegal and so-called "therapists" should be unable to carry out their "treatment". It is harmful to the person being exposed, can cause serious traumas as well as mental injuries and does often not have any scientifically proven background whatsoever. Furthermore, every person should be able to have the freedom to choose over own life and person. We, as society, should enable ourselves to accept and pro...
