The meaning of life in it's simplest terms is to procreate. On this basis if you do not make life you have no meaning. Your of no benefit to mankind. Living and life are two separate things. By living you can have meaning through others. As mankind's survival is based on making new life if you do not have children then you are of no use....

Unfortunately in many developing countries religious leaders are exploiting the na"ve minds of innocent young children by making them targets to the global disaster. By the time the children understand what religion is they are too much into the fervor, they are unable to look back what they lost in their innocent childhood. Taking this into advantage, those who are on the other side of the bank and starting to impose different opinions and connotations, making their lives even more disaster....

As pro I believe that religion does more harm than good. RULES - You cannot refer to any incidences where religion has done bad or good before the 21st century - If you are quoting from a source then you must use quotation marks (" example ") - Information cannot be quoted from wikipedia unless it is a definition that has been verified. - All other basic rules apply (no swearing ; no going off topic etc.) Round 1 : Acceptance or con can begin his/her argument but forfeit...

Nabukadnezar
Wylted

I define "ultimate question" as being the most urgent question humankind could answer in contemporary times.

Should the Confederate Flag be banned?

CamoSpiderman8
TheYoungManAndTheSea

Is the Confederate Flag really racist? Or just a Southern thing? It's not racist! It's Southern people (like me) showing pride in their country. The flag shouldn't be banned because it's a part of history. Now we can't buy confederate flags online but we can buy Isis and Nazi flags. What is wrong with this world?...
