Raising minimum wage

21rstudent
phil105

P1: A family of four with two working adults earning minimum wage would be living below the poverty level. P2: By putting more money in people's pocket there will be more spending in the economy. P3: inflation rises every year, but has been raised, just three times in the last three decades. :.- therefor the minimum wage needs to be 10.74 in order to account for inflation over the past 40 years. http://blog.adeccousa.com/waging-a-debate-the-pros-and-cons-of-raising-the-minimum-wage/...

Are people born with there personalities? e.g Could a person be born mean.

StephenGayBaptist

I guess part of our attitudes, and personalities are genetic, but it's the same as racism, it's learned. Our environment shapes us, anger is a natural emotion, but that doesn't mean we know to act on it. People can't change the way they were brought up, but no baby was born with a mean spirit....

There is no unchanging, separate self.

Strycora
PhilK

First round for acceptance only. The feeling of being an individual separate from ones environment is inevitably found to be illusory. There is no core to being, no "observer" or "soul" that continues from life to life, or even, from moment to moment. All things are subject to change, and there is no unchanging substrate to this change. Indeed, "essence" is an illusory notion....

Stealyogirl-osaurus
QueenAnnesRevenge

My argument is that God does not exist based on the fact that all "evidence" that has been proposed to me thus far has been without merit and sprouted out blindly from every person that has tried to convince me that God does in fact exist. I am looking for a healthy debate where we can argue the existence of God through reason and evidence....
