Money Is More Powerful than Intellect and Emotion

vivek.shome
eldecrok

In today's world, money is an important aspect of our lives. We crave money if we lack it. And that, my friends, Is the basic cause, that money is more powerful than intellect and emotion. Let us take the case of the terrorist Ajmal Kasab, a member of the Lakshar-E-Taliba, who carried out the attacks on Mumbai in 2008. Kasab left his house because his Father did not have enough money to buy him new clothes for Eid. He only joined the Lakshar-E-Taliba, because his family was promised a sum of...

Emilrose

I appreciate EmilRose being willing to debate this topic with me. I honestly didn't think many people would be too interested in this topic so I reached out to her knowing her interest in Israeli politics as well as history. I also wanted the challenge of facing an undefeated opponent. Little did I know that quit a few people were actually interested in debating this but I think I picked the best person for this particular debate anyway. The Elo limit unfortunately has to be at above 2,000 El...

Brains (pro) vs. Brawns (con)

ImmortalVoddoler
Inquisit0r

I would like to start this debate by introducing myself as both brainy and brawny. This being said, I highly prefer my brainy side. Why do I prefer this side? Because humans main goal is knowledge. Don't believe me? Look in your hand. What's there? A phone? A mouse? Maybe even a laptop! These are devices that we take advantage of today, but we couldn't begin to imagine these if we never focused on brains. Checkmate....

The Earth being flat, which can go beyond our limited pretense of it.

ChokingChlorine
Zarroette

Okay, I know that in the common sense that the Earth as we know it is to be called round, but did you know that aliens who inhabit worlds may use the term flat as to say that when they view the world from the outside that they can size themselves up to a planet and come up with the term flat as the world is big enough to provide flat land for them? Or there could be the thought that the Earth is not perfectly rounded, and thus is cast down to be in the category of the flat worlds, if you are a p...

Animal testing

Angelxm
OpinionPersom121

Animals do not have rights, therefore it is acceptable to experiment on them. Animals do not have the cognitive ability or moral judgment that humans do and because of this they have been treated differently than humans by nearly every culture throughout recorded history. If we granted animals rights, all humans would have to become vegetarians, and hunting would need to be outlawed....
