Capitalism Is A Religion Of The Rich And Anybody Who Believes In It Is Nuts

Quantumhead
Hanspete

The rich crashed the economy in 2008 by selling subprime mortgage investments to people it knew could not afford them. The rich recouped their losses from the taxpayer, courtesy of the same people whose political campaigns they funded. Most other people lost their homes, their jobs or both. Many of these are the same people being attacked by Conservatives right now as "benefit slobs". Capitalism has twisted people's thinking to irrational and absurd degrees. It is perfectly obvious that the...

Racial profiling is not necessarily racist as many claimed to be.

YaHey

While racial profiling is a reasonable assumption solely based on the color of one's skin, it's not racist as many sensitive people claimed to be. Take for example, assuming that I'm a witness of a robbery scene, and here is what I described to the police: The criminal is a tall, skinny, and middle-aged African American male who wears a red T-shirt. If the police believes in what I said and starts to search for the potential suspects, is it "discriminatory" (as in a bad way) to look after peop...

Red is better than blue.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Since the dawn of time there has been a war. We all know this war. It runs through our veins, it is in our bruises. We were introduced to this war the very moment our eyes became fully developed, having only been alive for merely six months. This war is the single most important issue that has ever arisen. It tore nations apart. It threw people into prison. It has been used to conquer. It has instilled people with fear. Now if you would be so kind, I beg you, lend me you...

There is a Non-Physical Basis of Human Consciousness

fa07
letrashman

The title says it all pretty much. I am of the position that consciousness is entirely physical, a product of physical states and processes of the brain. In other words, I am taking a physicalist or what one might call a materialist approach to consciousness, that consciousness is entirely brain-based. Whoever argues pro must be arguing that there is some non-physical aspect to the human mind. Granted, what exactly I mean by "physical", "material", and "brain-based" is admittedly somewhat vague,...

Any Transcendental Objective Meaning to Human life is both Illusory and destructive.

dannyc
Wylted

My contention for this proposition is that I feel any attempt to establish an Objective Meaning, a meaning which transcends or holds true to all of those who are members of the species H. sapiens, is not only an illusory prospect but one which has more destructive implications than positive. I require Con to obviously propose a framework for an objective meaning, including specifically a or many meanings, to use the term loosely. 1st Round. Accept and give your argument. 2nd Round.
