CO2 is killing the planet, all breathing things, except those that know this, should stop or do less of it right now, to save the planet for those that know this. That is the global warmists, (er,... climate changologists?) status quo, and you will better off if you are one of they, for reasons of self esteem, the greatest drug ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...

Final debate on objective morality

benko12345678
Ajabi

Hi ajab, this is my final attempt at moral debates :P I learned from my past mistakes and I asked mikal to be an ad-hoc judge. First round is starting argument. I won't divide it into several points because I'm too lazy. I found something in the quran. Quote (in english) 'Wish for your brother, what you wish for yourself.' NOTE: this quote will become important near the end. If morality is indeed objective, why are there so many different sects of all religions with different views? With d...

Legalizing Gay marriage

J118
YLO-M

I would first like to say I do not hate Homosexuality, but neither do I approve of it. I respect their choices, but can never approve of the relationship. With that out of the way, I would say that gay marriage, although understandable, should not be legalize and can lead to a bad precedent on society. If we allow gay marriage what's to say that incest shouldn't be illegal, or pedophilia, or in extreme settings bestiality and necrophilia. To me gay marriage can be the first step on rewriting...

Progressive Taxation is Unconstitutional

RobMBroughton
Palmo10

A progressive taxation system is unconstitutional because it violates the General Welfare clause of the Constitution. The underlying problem with a progressive tax system is that, when combined with a representative governmental construct, it fosters and perpetuates a culture of non-accountability. The majority poor vote for representatives promising government subsidies funded by wealth distribution where "somebody else" will pay. Pandering representatives recognize that even 100% tax ra...

Daniel was not a prophet

pivot
treefuckerwhocares

Generally speaking I don't agree with Judaism. But with respect to Daniel being a prophet, main stream Christianity is just plain wrong. Daniel was not a prophet. The Pro position, (mine) is that Daniel was not a prophet. Con's position will be that Judaism has miscategorized. (Some questions as an aside: If Daniel was not a prophet then what was he? Can Daniel's position be degraded within the Church if he was not a prophet? What can be done to the so called 'end time' theories that has sol...
