Does modern human being able to get rid of his animal nature , i mean like aggressiveness , cruelty and selfishness with the advancement of science and technology and progressive thinking - I think yes , modern man has really able to at least suppress and divert his killer instincts , even though at times he fail , comparing 100 years back the life of people and now , its far more friendly , but there is a lot more room for improvement...

something can not be true and false at the same time.

Makaveli83
mfigurski80

A far superior individual stated something cannot be true and false at the same time. A truth is a truth. A falsity is a falsity. Seeing as I clearly have a low iq I must agree with this as my opinion is merely an opinion. The individual was clearly telling the truth so it must be impossible to disagree with this statement.

ShabShoral
dylancatlow

In this debate, I will argue that Christopher Langan is overly (i.e. to a degree that is more than is necessary) verbose (i.e. longwinded; linguistically complicated). The BOP will be split as such: I will have to affirm the resolution, while my opponent must both negate my points and show that Langan's use of language is necessary....
