Possessing small, compact firearms on school grounds with a license.

There are many, many school shootings nowadays and I believe that students attending these schools should have some sort of protection. Sometimes these shootings are carried out by more than one person and students will need more protection than the helpless, defenseless teachers and faculty. A lot of schools are out of the way and far from the nearest police station. For example, my school is a good 20 minutes away from the nearest station. If someone shot up our school, I'd like to know that t...

Is self-sacrifice an ethical choice in a one on one scenario? What about lethal self-defense?

Maia
Luden

I think that self- sacrifice, even for only a single life, is indeed an ethical option. In this hypothetical situation, the person being saved is of approx. the same age as the saver, has no choice in the matter and has committed no terrible crimes or acts of unselfish good. Personally, I choose to answer this question with yes because I would not be able to live with myself otherwise. I would forever feel like I had payed for my life in blood. This might push me to inspired acts of kindness, bu...

All Matter is Sentient.

Envisage

All Matter is Sentient. Panpsychism holds this view as do I. However Atheism would seem to hold the view that the opposite is true. Correct me if I am wrong but the causation of the universe for atheists would appear to be the 'God of Random Chance, the last god off 'the rank' by default.

I believe malware will come to an end because many anti-virus programs are being updated year after year with more tight security. In addition, new malware is being developed with the help of previous ones, therefore, in the near future, we will block every malware program....

The Universe was created by God

Well, this debate is about the creation of the universe. I want to firstly define the specifics of this debate... Round 1 is acceptance, Round 2 is arguments Round 3 is arguments and rebuttals, Round 4 is conclusion I will be on the side that God didn't create the Universe. And, to define a few terms, God is the being whom, according to some religions, created the universe. The universe is the place all around Earth, including the creatures on Earth. This is an open debate... I hope that...

Why I love Education But Hate School

bballforlife
thedarkknight926

Education and School are two different things. School and hard work would be siblings but school would be a distant relative. Education is the key but why do we have to go to school to get it. Any more becoming educated is becoming the encyclopedia of dry facts that are only used for the test and all of these facts are stuff you could google at any time. So why do we need to go to school to achieve being educated....

The 16-bit wars (Super Nintendo vs. Sega Genesis vs. Turbografx-16) in the USA were won by Nintendo

jjaeger
STALIN

Many believe that Nintendo won the 16-bit wars or "4th generation" of the video game console wars, simply because in worldwide sales the Super Nintendo sold more units than the Sega Genesis and the Turbografx. However, I believe that there simply were no real winners in this console war because everyone won (Except NEC in the US)!! Sega went on to create the Sega Saturn, Nintendo with their N64 and NEC (in Japan) went on to create the PC-FX. Each company continued on with their momentum giving v...
