Alondra9
YasminPineda

Mothers need to vaccinate their children in order for them to avoid getting fatal diseases. Most diseases are prevented by getting vaccinations. Due to vaccinations diseases like smallpox have been eradicated. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) on their website wrote an Article title Smallpox writing "Thanks to the success of vaccination, the last natural outbreak of smallpox in the United States occurred in 1949." Vaccines have allowed and continue to allow protection to children from disea...

Should the word athiest be updated within the dictonary.

Infernape_Rox_77

https://www.youtube.com... Maybe the word Athiest needs to be updated within all dictionaries to. Athiests do believe in some kind of existance creator. What sort of personal allution is still in process until a later date. Instead of Atheist; a person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods. Or even drop disbelieves out of the explaination all together....

Can a non-personal god that is governed by a deterministic reality exist? if so how?

RMTheSupreme

(because this site makes you pick a position we can say that pro=A and con=B, honestly the best result for me is that someone can show that one piece or all of A is irrational or that there is a more logical and rational way of explaining what I am describing.) So a little background info. My spiritual view is Pantheist. Not to be confused with those Pantheist that believe earthly nature=god or that Pantheist=all gods and/or religions. I believe those who hold those beliefs misunderstand Pan...

Can the Christian faith and logical reason cooexist without a problem?

NKJVPrewrather
Aileen3310

I say yes. I am a Christian. I accept every word of the NKJV Bible and the US Constitution. With logical reason with and without the Bible, I use reason to deduce that I ought to obey the no harm law, be nice to animals, and let people have freedom of thought if I want to do the same. I have no right to force religion on people, but I can practice ny faith. What I wish antitheists would understand is that I would fight for your right to be an atheist just please understand that I have the right....

Homework should be banned from the education system because it has detrimental health effects. School work does not certainly make a student perform better in their studies, but it does affect a student's physical and mental health. According to the Advocate Health Care News, an article was published in 2014 on a study performed by Denise Pope from the University of Stanford, on the effects of homework. The study found "Too much homework was found to be counterproductive. In a poll, 56 percent o...

Anyone who wants to debate me on this is encouraged to put their points in the format that I'm putting them in so it's organized. New bullet points may be added if necessary. NO TROLLS ALOUD. 1) Science has confirmed that a fetus is a person. A fetus has all the necessary chromosomes to be alive and a fetus meets all the necessary criteria to be alive. 2) Statement 1 is not an opinion, it is a fact. An opinion does not have evidence whereas science does. 3) Most reasons why a woman would w...

Should students be able play games in class?

studentdrake
Luxray2854

yes, they should. I am a middle school student and most of the information I remember is from video games. I don't think people should be able to just screw around on the phones. I think that they should be fun but teacher approved games that focus on the information we need for that subject and for OCCT (or any other state testing) tests...

School prepares you for the future because it teaches you how to become an everyday worker. Think of it this way, your boss doesn't want you slacking and not doing your work in a everyday environment. Well thats what school is an everyday environment where you complete assignments and whether you do them is up to you or not. However in a common work place if you don't do your work you end up fired, or in an almost same way you fail the class. Which if you think about it is almost like failing yo...
