Although violence may be a horrible thing, in of itself it isn't evil. Violence is part of our life, it's also tool for the nature to use in it's evolutionary mechanics (Survival of the fittest).

The Grim Reaper Paradox

Vernich
Sswdwm

If there were an actually infinite number of Grim Reapers tasked with your death at a uniform interval from 1pm to 2pm, and the first Reaper strikes at 1:30, the second at 1:15, and so on... then you can't both live or die in that hour interval.

In a hierarchy of value, evidence is more valuable to society then belief.

Hiramalexis
Lee001

The rounds to follow will be on-case arguments/rebuttals. Observation 1) Definitions: *Evidence: the available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid. *Belief: something one accepts as true or real; a firmly held opinion or conviction. Observation 2) Voting Criteria...
