Scientists Never Falsify Data

Wylted
Challengerqwerty

This debate should be impossible to accept. I'm trying to see if somebody I'm arguing with on Facebook is willing to take this debate since he told me that scientists don't falsify data. This kinda came up after I mentioned climate gate and he sarcastically made statements that him and his scientist buddies always falsify data for their political agendas....

TheWorldForMorals

I feel that this is an important issue to address with the release of films such as The Interview and, more recently, American Sniper. American Sniper is a film about Iraqi War veteran Chris Kyle, detailing his experiences as the 'Deadliest Marksman in US History. Many are complaining that the film not only is an example of modern propaganda, but that it further sparks a sense of Islamophobia in Americans, and frankly, I think they're right. The first minutes of the movie consists of the m...

Altruism: the belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others.In order for an action to be truly altruistic the action must be committed with the intention to help someone else without considering the benefits for one self. If an action is committed that helped someone else but self interest is involved than that action is not altruistic. Psychological egoism is the view that humans are always...

The surviving members of "Laughing Coffin" should've been put on trial upon awakening from SAO

Vox_Veritas
Zaradi

In the anime and manga series "Sword Art Online", 10,000 individuals were trapped inside a video game called Sword Art Online (the franchise's namesake) through an advanced Virtual Reality (VR) device which could not be safely removed. No one could awake in the real world until somebody beat the game (which happened after 2 years or so of the game's duration). If a player was killed within the game, the VR device would emit deadly microwaves in the player's brain and kill the player in real lif...

Classical Music (Pro) vs. [Insert Genre of Music Here]

Pythasis
Adam_Godzilla

I like nearly all different types of music, old or new, simple or complicated, etc. etc. That being said, classical music (specifically referring to Western art music), in my opinion, is the greatest of them all. I respect all music and look forward to debating this with anyone who disagrees.No bashing the other genre for the sake of bashing. There has to be a legitimate reason for giving criticism to the opposing ge...
