While many believe the ancient Megalodon shark still swims our oceans, I would like to say that while there are many theories on how this could be possible, there is no evidence, nor theories, that cannot be easily disproved on his existence....

Cascadia, should we be our own nation?

Figure-it-out
AirplanesAndBaseball

Cascadia was the nation we would call Washington, Oregon, British Colombia, southern Alaska, northern California, and parts of Idaho (may include parts of Alberta, Montana, and Wyoming). Scottish naturalist named David Douglas, during the 1820's, the root of the term Cascadia was first brought up. We would have our own independence. Being our own nation is due to our different geographical, cultural, economical, and environmental of the other parts of North America. Cascadia is slowly develop...

Should fishing be legal.

vindog14

There are many people out there who say fishing and hunting is wrong. So I wish to challenge someone to a debate about this. My argument is that fishing is a more humain way of getting meat then, lets say, getting it a Safeway where they get there meat from factory farms. Also my families ranch is kind of far from legit grocery stores so we get a lot of are meat from hunting and fishing. So please get me a good challenge. And remember please respect each others opinions....

R: It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of many innocent people.

"It is the greatest good to the greatest number of people which is the measure of right and wrong." It's because that I agree with this quote by Jeremy Bentham that I urge an affirmation of the resolution. "It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of many innocent people." [Definitions] For clarity I pose the following definitions. 1. Morally permissible: conforming to a circumstantial standard of right behavior. 2. More: a larger quantitative amount...

Drone warfare should be permitted because it gets the job done well. Drones such as the MQ-1 Predator and the MQ-9 Reaper have performed very well in wars like Afghanistan and Iraq. Drones have helped the military immensely and will continue to aid the war effort. Thank you....

All Jews are not Israelis

secretam
NiamC

Some people believe that all Jews are Israelis. I may not be a Jew nor an Israeli, but I do believe the terms are different. If you call yourself a Muslim, does that mean you are an Arabian? No, it means that you believe in Islam. If you call yourself a Hindu, does that mean you are Indian? No, it means that you believe in Hinduism. If you call yourself Christian, does that mean you are a Greek (as Greece has the highest percentage of the population which is Christian)? No, it means that you bel...

The fat should be made to buy two seats on planes

brian_eggleston
thisoneguy

I was involved in a rather unpleasant incident on a British Airways flight from Aberdeen to Heathrow recently. (1) The aircraft was an Airbus A319 with a single economy (coach) class cabin which was fitted with seats with a width of 17.0" (2) and the aisle seat I was allocated was located next to a grossly overweight gentleman, whose considerable girth was overflowing onto my seat, thus preventing me from putting the armrest down or fastening my seatbelt. I therefore challenged the man and here...

Should forts pave way for five star hotels?

ankursharma123

The topic is should the forts be turned into five star hotels. Well I must say that definitely its a much better choice for turning a fort into a good heritage hotel, so that it doesn't only get renovated, but also people can enjoy the naturality and the experience of living in a old historical fort, which is quite a good feeling. Now India is a great historical country and it has got forts in large number spread in the country. Also Rajasthan is the state famous for forts. Now many of them are...
