Race, genes, IQ

Chuck11

Last year my brother called me a "racist" for pointing out that genes could mediate some of the US racial achievement gap, so, being a neurotic, I spend a number of months digging through the data and outlining the idea. (http://abc102.wordpress.com/) "Race, genes, and disparity." I found the idea to be plausible, but the evidence, while trending to support a partial genetic hypothesis, equivocal -- anyways, I'm looking for someone to debate the issue. The stipulation is that they read through s...

Sottaceti

Many of the Srilanka Tamil People Who Temporarily got Settled in Various Country During their Own Country Problem are still in trouble. The Reason for stating that, it is their own country problem, is the Tamils fought for their regal rights are living that land for generations together. After hundreds of year, the Tamils in Srilanka in their own land, where discriminated by the Rulers. In the beginning the Tamil raised their voice in Gandhian Way only. But due to so many reasons and others infl...

Legalization of Marijuana

AnOddBeauty
BangBang-Coconut

Marijuana, otherwise known as Cannabis sativa, is a simple plant that grows from the Earth. This leads to the other names of this government hated plant... Grass, weed. Marijuana is not a drug by any means. It comes from the green element. And if you should so happen to set it on fire [another element] there are some effects. You can't put two natural substances together and say it's a drug. That's no drug, that's nature....

Euthanasia

BangBang-Coconut

Euthanasia should be legal in the United States. However, only when voluntary. A person has the right to life, and therefore they also have the right to die. Why should they suffer if they don't have to or don't want to any longer? Nobody should have to suffer for a longer period of time if they don't want to. Being terminally ill and fighting for so long is suffering enough. They must grow tired of it and if there is a way to end the suffering peacefully and safely then people should at least h...

Cons job will be to suggest an alternative solution that does not increase the risk of harm to Israel, Israeli citizens, or the Jewish People.

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Cluckelite

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...

Gambling for Muslims in Vea

matrixsurvivor
Korashk

I was reading this article about Gambling for Muslims: http://www.gamblingplanet.org/az-zahr-and_mahjong_tradition_makes_gamblers I have been in Vegas during Christmas and saw many Arabs (and I assume some were Muslims) gambling. A friend of mine from Morocco actually said US should not allow Muslims in our casinos. Now I wonder...should we really do that? And how? Stop every one with a passport from a Muslim country? I don't think so......
