In terms of quality of life, a flat tax places an unfair, substantially heavier burden on the poor.

KroneckerDelta
Beginner

This is mostly a hypothetical debate. However, I will present numbers which Con is more than welcome to question.In this debate we will be looking at relatively modern Western Societies and specifically the United States (although I think this would easily apply to modern European countries such as the UK, France, Germany, etc.). This stipulation is particularly important when defining the minimum cost of living (since one could say that in 3rd world countries the cost of living...

God is guilty of collusion to sacrifice a child in the case of Jepthah

izbo10
ReformedArsenal

This debate will have me arguing like a prosecuting attorney trying to prove that Yahweh is guilty of collusion to sacrifice a human being in the book of Judges. My opponent will defend Yahweh, unlike a court of law this is not beyond reasonable doubt, though I think it will be shown, but who presents a better case and which appears more likely. First round will be acceptence of terms and any questions which I will address in comments.

Mufasa (the EEPster) should shave his head.

Paramountdesktop
TheSkeptic

Why should Mufasa shave his head? 1. His huge hair is a breeding ground for bacteria. It is impossible for him to thoroughly wash his hair because he has never learned strategy from teaching figures. A strategy does not start out perfect. Parents generally do not shower with their children, so strategies were invented and never corrected. And think about it...how can such a huge mass be washed? Generally, boys don't care that much about their hygiene. They neglect to do certain things tha...
