the wrath of khan is the stupidest star trek movie and khan is the stupidest star trek villain

retroz

khan is the most idiotic star trek villain ever conceived by gene roddenberry. in the 20th century, people made predictions about the future. usually around the year two thousand. these things were way off and ridiculous. you can watch some of them on youtube, for some good laughs. i argue that the further forward in time you set your sci fi story, the better it will be, because by that time the world will have changed so much that they won't even know your sci fi story exists and won't...

tahirimanov

This debate is for the DDO Beginner's Tournament. I shall be challenging tahirimanov to this debate. Philosophical idealism is defined as "the group of philosophies which assert that reality, or reality as we can know it, is fundamentally mental, mentally constructed, or otherwise immaterial." Realism is defined as "the belief that some aspects of reality are ontologically independent of our conceptual schemes, perceptions, linguistic practices, beliefs, etc." The first round is accepta...

hector56
Quetzal

yes Most working people benefit from having their cell phones on them. They can access their email, call clients, check inventory, read the news, use software applications, and more. Students need to learn how to use their cell phones responsibly (see next tip!). 2. TO TEACH RESPONSIBILITY Students know they shouldn"t use their cell phones in school to play Angry Birds, or listen to music, or text their friends about the quiz they just took.

There is no evidence that humans share a common ancestor with apes

Abeceda
IBeatMyMeats

My position is that there is not one piece of evidence in support of the idea that humans share a common ancestor with apes - that can not be interpreted in another way. To clarify my position even further, I shall provide an example. Homology, which is considered evidence of such common ancestry, might equally be evidence of common factory (i.e. that the similarities are not due to a shared ancestor, but a shared maker). If you disagree with this, and believe that you have definitive evid...

I will select the person of debate, since rules appear to mean nothing here. As to believers, you do not have to be a scholar, you can even be brand new to Christianity. I ask only a desire to grow, quicker than you would normally. My sole purpose is to show you the word of God, not my word, not your word, nor that of any scholar. or preacher. I suggest highly that you go Too God and ask Him to open your mind, I can show you only the scripture and guide you into the word, I cannot and will not i...
