Why are we at an equality war?

Themind1337
WillRiley

So I have come to the belief that we treat people other than our selfs mainly for good reasons. Now first let's look at how black people were treated as slaves, long story short we basically offered them a favor without a choice, in which we offered them 4 walls and what they require to live, but black people obviously wanted a sense of achievement instead of letting white people do the heavy lifting which made them rebelle and fight for their own sense of control. Now let's talk about females a...

Health care due to respiratory issues due to smoking has increased the cost of health care tremend...

I will be attempting to show that the statement, "Found in the cirriculum of the first US Public Schools, 1647... "...one chief project of that old deluder, Satan, to keep men from the knowledge of the Scriptures."", contained in medic0506's forum signature is factually incorrect. As he has refused to admit to this in the forums. Well either he can refuse this debate, admiting that he keeps that there knowing it is not the truth, or he can debate me on it. Well medic? I'v been on this site f...

I will take the pro position that it is wrong to force a student or child to recite the pledge of allegience. Forced: enforced or compulsory http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/forced...

If a God is Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Omnibenevolent, then Free Will Does Not Exist

BrandonMS
Aerogant

This is a rather simple concept: If there is an omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent deity, can absolute free will exist? I say no, and am therefore Pro. I have seen this definition of a god be used to define specifically the Abrahamic god several times and will thus be focusing largely on that in my opening statement, but it may describe any god the opponent wishes. Biblical, religious, and philosophical verses and references are allowed to be used as points. Because of the subject of...
