Christianity inhibits US advancement


I argue that Christianity inhibits advancement of the United States. For this debate, let's define advancement as 'development or improvement' Before I begin, let me take this opportunity to point out that I am not here to attack Christianity or Christians. The debate is centered on the negative influence of Christianity (or lack thereof, as Con might argue) on the United States in key elements of advancement such as politics, finance, education, and our society in general. I am not arguin...

Private vs public. Which is better? Pro-private, Con-public


When it comes to public vs private, public looses badly. Think about the public places you visit. Parks, for instance. In public parks, there is often graffiti, vandalism and litter. Think of the restrooms at public parks. Unclean, smelly and heavily vandalized. In the publicly owned park, everybody in a sense owns it. It's easy to not take care of it. Not in a privately owned park though. It's more pleasant and clean. Almost the exact oppisite of a public park. That's because a person owns it a...

I have been researching a lot lately to take my mind off the news and what's going on in the world. However, I believe that under specific circumstances that a act or terrorism could be essential to the world/ benefit mankind by bringing us together and or by lowering human population. Martain Luthur King was considered a terrorist among several other Human rights freedom fighters throughout american history but, Before I get to deep prewarning I am picking a VERY touche' topic here. Are Acts su...

Discrimination can sometimes be correct.


Discrimination is never correct due to the fact, that it pointlessly hurts people for no apparent reason. How can judging someone on their sex, skin colour, or even hair colour ever benefit our society in any way, shape or form? It makes no sense. People using discriminative terms for no logical reason are emphatically wrong. Think about it this way: The person who is being insulted at with your discriminative statement could go onto self harm or even commit suicide. There have been many...

We should institute "Artificial" Selection for the betterment of the human race.


To begin, I would like to elaborate on the topic. I believe that the bottom percentile of the population should be removed from the gene pool for the betterment of the human race. If this occurs, many beneficial results will be achieved. First of all, this will obviously control the population. This will benefit the environment and reduce the general strain that humans are putting on the earth. Removing the bottom percentiles will cause the "better" part of the...
