Evolution is more credible than Creationism

Midnight1131
DDDDaniel

Evolution is fact. Fact in science, as described by paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould, is data, not absolute certainty but "confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent," One means of evolution is *natural selection*. Organisms with favourable traits are more likely to reproduce. An example of this are day flying moths, which at first were had light coloured skin, and there were a few dark skinned moths. At first the light skinned moths had a better chanc...

Schools should not have uniforms for many reasons.For example,many people think that it is cheaper but really it isn't.When students wear uniforms they can not express themselves the way they would want to with their clothes,and they find other ways to express themselves such as with bad behavior....

Should the Bible be used in arguments involving political issues such as gay marriage?

I believe that the Bible should not be used in arguments involving political issues such as gay marriage or the transgender rights movement. The book is a religious icon; politics should be kept separate from religious arguments, as stated by Thomas Jefferson himself when he proposed the "separation of church and state".

When someone is in pain and is in the clutches of a terminal sickness how much do they really want to go on. If you are dying of brain cancer and you don't want your family to see you melting into nothingness would you really just continue on even though you had less than six months to live. Put yourself in their shoes, no we don't mean the elderly we mean the young people who don't want to waste away and be in pain for the last years of their life. Of course strict laws would help to limit the...

I think that shouldn't exist any kind of censorship for a comedian or artist express their opinions, but sometimes this liberty is taken as an insult, and the comedian is accused of racism, or being perverted or something like that. Sorry for my english....

Should Immigrants pay a fee percentage, on any money sent out of this country.

Lookingatissues
Beagle_hugs

immigrants have long looked at America as a country where they could come and seek work to better themselves and their families. But for immigrants to only benefit themselves at the expense of the citizens who have to provide benefits to them such as schooling, housing, law enforcement, medical, is a cost that immigrants should contribute to assist in paying for that they take advantage of. There is a cost levied on Americans who wish to live here , shouldn't those who come across our borders al...

Should Smoking be Banned in Restaurants

rebeccamurray601
MCB2700

I think that smoking in restaurants should be banned because when people go out to eat they do not want to be breathing in the smoke or having it all in your food. Also breathing in smoke is bad for your lungs and that can lead to lung cancer. Lung cancer can be a deathly thing. If your favorite restaurant allowed smoking and every time you go in there you breath it in your lungs will turn all black. It makes it hard for the lungs to server there purpose if they are ruined from breathing in all...
