Do humans know everything?

Almog

Think about it...and when I say think about it, I mean throw away everything you think you know about what you don't, and think deeply about the argument. It is possible to know everything. By possible to know everything, I mean not in a carnal state, but rather in a general state. When one knows everything in a general state, only thing can someone learn everything in specificity. There are may questions people think are unanswered, but they are in our face. In order to know everything, you hav...

1 cup of oil+one cup of alcohol=less than 2 cups of liquid. So 1+1 does not equal 2. Also, 42 is the answer to anything in the universe, making 1+1=42. But many argue that since every baby knows it, and that even Betrand Russell "proved" it, it is true. However, not all babies can find that for themselves, and are "force-fed" it by their mothers. Also, Russell's proof later was discovered to be errorous, making it hard to decide if 1+1 does equal 2. If 1+1=2, 2=42 does not equal 2....

The democrats are more racist than the republicans

Flipbook
abstrackedruth

This is my first debate since a long inactivity period following a rage induced set of poor arguments. Rules: There is no status quo, therefore burden of proof is shared. This is about racism, not sexism. If sexism is argued in the place of racism... Then maybe you can get away with it if it's a strong enough argument. I believe that all races are equal and the only true way to not be racist is to not acknowledge that race exists. Con can start first....
