abortion

AlexanderOc

I believe that a women should be allowed to do what she pleases with her body, and it shouldn't be in the goverments control. Abortion can save children from: 1. Extreme pain 2. Extreme cases of brain damage 3. Being born in poverty 4. Incest 5. Major diformities and if a young girl is raped who has a body too young to produce children, and it is much too emotionally difficult for a young girl to give birth to a child anyway, please note by young child I mean under 14, abortion can stop he...

Anyone can go to heaven as long as they believe their God is equal to Jehovah?

Newtrallectual
Mikal

In the Jewish religion, they believe, as individuals and as a majority, that they can be harmonized to God even after sinning.. By sinning they can lose their souls, but can earn their salvation back through repenting and living morally. In Christianity, an individual must believe Jesus Christ is their Lord and savior to enter the gates of heaven. If you didn't already have this understanding, the Jewish God and the Christian God are the same supreme being. Christianity was established after Jud...

The United States should be a Confederation; other then a Federation that it is now. A Confederation is a union by compact or treaty between states, provinces or territories that creates a central government with limited powers; the constituent entities retain supreme authority over all matters except those delegated to the central government. In this definition it explains that the Government of the Confederation would NOT have as much power as the United States Government does now. The U...

The demonic of the Gospels were derived from human attack

pivot
The_R3d_Fury

The Pro position, (mine) is that the demon possession found in the Gospels and confronted by Jesus were the results of human planning. It is not demons that attack human beings. It is other humans that attack human beings. Demons and Angels are fraudulent beings. These fake beings are used to provide cover for spiritual terror. As always my main source is the Bible but Con is welcome to use any source, and good luck Con. "The peoples of the Mediterranean began to emerge from barbarism when th...

With most hate crimes being between states it is an international problem, that means the Supreme Court should handle the problem but sometimes that isn't the case. Most times they stay out of it and let the states handle it but most times it may not be settled but pushed to the side....

Should Iran withdraw from the NNPT?

RegardezBeauregard
FBDAWSON

The P5+1 nations have failed to resolve their issue against Iran after nearly 8 years of stalling on the issue. The economic and military responses to an unofficial statement against the unverified pursuance of nuclear weapons by Iran can be seen as unlawful. The IAEA and P5+1 have violated both parts of Article 4 of the NNPT by halting the processes of nuclear power installations, which decreases electrical output for domestic needs within Iran. This is not shocking as both Article 1 and 2 of t...

ahmed51
bac11

1)Studies show that homework adds nothing to standard test scores. Some schools and some countries don't bother with homework at all and their results do not seem to suffer from it. 2) Students in Japan and Denmark get close to no homework but score very well on tests. Countries that give homework have worse results. 3) Therefore the United States should consider banning homework from schools....
