When we buy tickets to a movie, we support the content of its message.

Kirknerk

Observe, if you will, that when one buys a ticket to a movie, one influences a string of causation threading backward from the cash register, to the bookkeeper, to management, to the theater"s CEO where is determined the fate of the cinematic production in question. From here, the string does not terminate. It continues its trek perhaps even to the hills of Hollywood where directors and producers must collaborate to make their art palatable to Main St. (average Joe) so that Wall St. (the CEO) an...

It is okay to debate using "false" definitions

Mhykiel

I've debated another member and I see them getting some heat for using a definition for Atheism that others disagree with. I think this is unfair to them. I take the pro position that if one begins a debate defining the terms this is acceptable. If the definition and assertion of the debate is circular that would make it non-debatable is being fallacious would be another argument. But it is acceptable to use the terms as defined. Con can begin arguing in first round. "False" definition bei...

Earth is indeed 4.5 billion years old, not 6000 years old.

It just says that Earth was created in 7 days and other stuff too. When it says 7 days, it doesn't mean specifically 7 days of a duration of 24 hours of one day. It says nowhere about that. Scientists have also proven Earths estimated age by carbon dating and radiometric dating. Earth is not 6000 years old...

Social Darwinism

cartersolomon
evandudeguy

I am starting this debate to see a plethora of opinions on the matter. My opinion is that Social Darwinism is currently the philosophy of the U.S. but it is not a fact of life and it does not necessarily have to be. What I am primarily looking at/ talking about is the desire of people to compete against one another and work for their own personal goal, as opposed to working for a common goal or accomplishment. (I do not want this to turn into capitalism vs socialism PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND) Fro...

Oromagi
Bullish

THESIS: The Crimean Referendum of March 16 need not be respected or recognized by any state or international jurisdiction, insofar as the Referendum was conducted by agents of a foreign government (Russia) during an unprovoked military occupation of Crimea by that same foreign entity. The Referendum did not meet the minimum standards for free or fair elections and the outcome failed to reflect substantial opposition to joining Russi...
