Should high school/college atheletes recieve passing grades just because they are on a sports team?

TheDaftHatter
Slime_Destroyer

Seriously this is a real thing. Should teachers feel compelled to give an athlete a passing grade for the course/class because said student is on the team or so much as the star of the team? Let's say said athlete could not complete the course or pass the class on his/her own should the teacher pass him/her along anyway? No I don't think so just because the sports team is going to the playoffs I don't think Johnny should pass his english class just because he is the star on the football team. Le...

Is 1/3 = 1

Suppose this was not the case, i.e. 0.9999... != 1. Then 0.9999... < 1 (I hope we agree on that). But between two distinct real numbers, there's always another one (say x) in between, hence 0.9999... < x < 1. The decimal representation of x must have a digit somewhere that is not 9 (otherwise x == 0.9999...). But that means it's actually smaller " x < 0.9999..., contradicting the definition of x. Thus, the assumption that there's a number between 0.9999... and 1 is false, hence they're equ...

IwinYoulose333

First and foremost, I am not a "gay-hater." I do not stand on the street with a "God Hates Gay's" sign. I am religious. However, I will try very hard to not bring religion into the debate. Rules: 4 rounds 1- acceptance and opening statements 2- arguments 3- arguments 4- closing statements If anyone, calls me ANYTHING even vaguely insulting ex. "Stupid Christian," "gay-hater" I immediately win. Opening Statment: I believe that homosexuality in humans is unnatural, in the sim...

God Exists

professorguy
CarolHan

My argument is based on burden of proof. Burden of proof states that "The burden of proof lies with someone who is making a claim, and is not upon anyone else to disprove." [1] In other words, you must prove God exists, not me disproving it. If I can refute your argument, then I win. [1] yourlogicalfallacyis.com/burden-of-proof...

Mandarin Chinese should be taught alongside English because it is used just as much as English.

DreamSymphony00

Mandarin Chinese is even more commonly spoken than English due to the sheer number of people from China. So why not have it be taught with English?...

Earth is older then 6000 years old.

The earth that we both live on is way older than 6000 years contrast to bible literalist belief. There is much evidence proving that the earth is older than 6000 years old. and is in fact 4.5 billion years old. 1, Continental drift The fact that tectonic plates are moving the continents around. there is evidence that several fossils from one kind of dinosaur have been found in both eastern brazil and central-western africa. Thus proving that the two continents have been together at one point. I...
