Is nuclear war the right solution for overpopulation?

ZivWonders
Zarroette

Nuclear war can be a solution for overpopulation. The earth can be very similar to the human body, wherein each human is a cell. If cells increase in number abnormally, it leads to cancer. If there is overpopulation, economic crisis can occur. So if radiation therapy is considered to be a cure, then nuclear war can be considered too, as a corresponding solution for overpopulation....

Advertising, in general, is necessary in today"s society.

Hi all,Since the very dawn of marketing, advertising has played a crucial role in civilization, as we know it. In the business world, it is often said "advertising is a necessary evil". I have read that the spending in 2013 reached an all-time high with 500 billion dollars. It is expected that this trend will continue and spending will rise up to 5,8% in 2015 and 2016. From this one might conclude that advertising is needed by companies.I found myself wondering if al...

Women more important for the society to develop than men

I believe that women are more important for the development of a society. Because first of all there are many important women artists and scientists. And women have an important place in our world too. But unfortunately in the past women weren't educated enough. So most of the important persons are men folk. But that doesn't mean that they are more important for the development of a society. Most importantly almost every scientist or successful person had a mother. Mothers are very important for...

That people should allowed to have tattoos (visible) in the workplace

I would argue that tattoos are as much a part of a person's identity as eye color, if not more so. Most people who have spent the money (and time) in tattoo parlors have done so because their body art means something to them, and the ones that do not want to hide their tattoos. Here are some tattoo statistics as provided by statisticbrain.com 45 Million Americans have at least one tattoo 17% of those people regret their tattoo(s) and 43% of those believe that personal meaning is the mos...

Should people who lie about rape be punished with the same punishment actual rapists get?

PatrickAVG
DSky25

Hello! I would like to explain what I mean by my question before I begin. When I talk about "False Rape Accusers" I mean people who claim someone raped them when in fact, they did not. These people exist and there is a startling number of them. This debate is about whether or not these people should be given a punishment equal to the punishment that their victims would have received had it not been learned that the Accuser was lying. Anyway, ON WITH THE DEBATE! :D ___________________________...

GMOs are the next step in helping to solve world hunger.

Vinny12345
fatman647

GMOs are definitely an undeniable way to feed the millions of starving people. The fear mongering done by many people is wrong, unnecessary, and holding back more privileged societies from allowing less fortunate ones to reap the benefits of access to cheap, easy-to-grow foods....
