Is it ever a victims fault if they are raped or sexually assaulted.

Jnaejnae
Beginner

This will not be a debate on whether god exists or not. It is whether it effects us and our future for the better or worse. To clarify I am talking about Christianity, Islam, and, Judaism as the main "god". I would like a nice and mature discussion. I personally am kinda on both sides but I went with con, so I am defiantly not completely one sided. I am an atheist and I think it isn't right for someone to lie to themselves to make themselves happy and to go against modern science and progres...

Should we have school uniforms?

We should not have school uniforms. School uniforms can restrict students freedom of expression. Also not all families have the money to buy expensive school uniforms. There is evidence that school uniforms were result of violent attacks and decreased attendance. Studies also show that most students oppose school uniforms. Students should have the choice of what they wear to school....

Is technology a better use in school, or book work?

societystudent0
Pirates

Students should be able to use book work, because it's a better use for the mind. Technology is good, but kids can get so into it , that they forget about book work. Technology is taking over now, and one day they will turn on us. So I think, book work is a better way to get your education....

The first argument is for a short definition on what you are supporting. Renewable energy is defined as "energy that comes from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat."[1] The four of these sources (rain, tide, and wave fall under hydro energy) together can power the globe cleanly.
