Gary Larson shows more detail in his comics, I think, and also he makes different ones. He doesn't stick to two people....

Should a christian use his mind?

jonnyboy39
rsz42

In my experience,i have met countless christians who will cry "dont think about it,dont worry about silly issues like that,just believe and have faith. I think that position is absolute ignorant and borderline evil. Many professing christians say "i cant explain or prove God,but that dosnt matter,i know him in my heart". God tells us in his word "love God with all your heart,all your strength and all your mind". In my opinion if a christian is challenged with a hard question he"ll say get fa...

NASA should develop a hybrid Startram system to save fuel

Coveny

It currently takes NASA over 3 million lbs of fuel to get the space shuttle into space. A hybrid open air maglev system releasing the shuttle going 300 mph at the top of Mount Elbert (23,533 ft above sea level) could provide initial thrust and reduce the amount of fuel used per flight dramatically, from 0 mph release at sea level that is currently in use. The cost to build the hybrid system would be a significantly lower capital expense than a full startram system. (even if the cost per launch w...

Farming animals should be illegal

nil29
Eutropios1

I am for animal farming being illegal purely because of the detrimental environmental effects. It is the largest contributor towards global warming and environmental companies aren't doing anything about it. Due to animal agriculture, by 2050, Co2 emissions will have increased by 80%. It's destroying our planet and I can't understand why people are okay with this just because meat is 'tasty'. The amount of water that goes into a making one burger is 6000 litres. Think about how ridiculous the co...

'Trigger Warnings' stifle debate

benjaminhunt
QueenDaisy

" Safe spaces and trigger warnings are being used as a cudgel to promote homogenous thinking and curb dissent in higher academia. College is supposed to be about learning, about perspective, and the free exchange of ideas. Confronting an opinion or worldview that you may not share, or may not have considered is NECESSARILY uncomfortable. This whole notion that anything that would make you uncomfortable needs a trigger warning, or creating physical areas for thought bubble in "safe spaces" is no...

thatNerd

God is defined as the omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent cause of all contingent being. P1: If gratuitous suffering probably exists, then God probably does not exist P2: Gratuitous suffering probably exists C: Therefore, God probably does not exist --- I will be arguing that the premises are most plausibly true; the first round is for acceptance....

Gentrification in cities

asox44
LaL36

I believe that gentrification in cities is bad for the community and only drives the working class families out because it increases the cost of living. It solves no problems and only marginalizes people more than they already have been. Definitions gentrification-the change in the character of a traditionally working-class area following an influx of new middle-class residents. [1] (From what I have experienced this usually entails people coming from the suburbs with their money to newly "...
