Is diversity a proper objective

Lookingatissues
KarolusMagnus1

....Diversity ,in my opinion is just a method of diversion from the real objectives of Statism...... which is, in the end, to control every facet of people's lives.

No avenue that might further the statist's objectives of complete domination by government bureaucrats is overlooked fro...

For this debate, the...

Is infinity A Number (listable infinity)

mshoosterman
Kryptic

Its a very simple argument We all have heard it before people mindlessly saying Infinity is not a number, but with no basis. And with out stopping to think the repercussions of it. There are many different types of number, There are the standard "Real Numbers" which include Integers, natural numbers, whole numbers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, transcendental numbers, And then there are whole other sets which fall outside of the "Real Numbers" like infinitesimals, Imaginary numbers etc...

We need the stop the people who abuse other humans. We need to unite this world and end the evil that is in everyone.
