Anarcho-Socialist

Hello. I am arguing in favour of the scientific fact that race is a biological, rather than only a social, construct. Before I start, I must define some basic terms: Race: A separate group of people within a species that has obvious, heritable phonotypical variations. Species: A group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of exchanging genes or interbreeding. Social Construct: Social construction is how society groups people and how it privileges certain groups o...

Eternal life is existing

The basic premise proceeds from the assumption that the probability of a world coming into existence exactly like our own is greater than zero (we know this because our world exists). If space is infinite, then cosmology tells us that our existence will recur an infinite number of times. We also know for a fact that we are made of atoms and particles. Giving infinite time and space, there will eventually be same atoms and particles IN SAME ORDER, therefore our existence is cyclical and not li...

Before the publication of "On Fabric of the Human Body" by Andreas Versalius, people were dissecting animals in hopes understanding the human anatomy. It was not until Versalius had published his book that the world understood the functions and positions of organs within the human body. In comparison to animals, many areas were positioned differently than the human body. Animals also have alternate functions to certain organs due to their diets and their habits of walk, mating, etc. Currently, t...

Creationists are often discriminated by Atheist for being biased towards Christianity. Well I argue that the argument stated by Atheist is not viable. Evolutionists are biased towards Naturalism and human reasoning. The Evolutionists are relying too much on Darwin's theory of evolution and/or the theory of the big bang, which is what I contradict. The definition of theory is simply an unproven idea to attempt to prove a point. The big bang does not have enough evidence to prove itself, in fact,...
