Should small towns and schools be conjoined into cities to make bigger schools.

The reason I think they shouldn't is small towns aren't just about school and money. Small town communities are just really big families. Most people think they are a leach on society but I tend to disagree. Everyone in a small town know and band together in tough times. They sometimes hate sometimes love each other. In the town I'm in a kids dad died and since his mom was already dead the town stuck up for them. Half of the town (since they didn't have any more family in Oklahoma) tried to adop...

Worshipping poltergeists is not that bad of an idea

mightbenihilism
VelCrow

This debate assumes poltergeists exist as disembodied or subtle-bodied sentient creatures. It does not, however, assume whether they are spirits of the dead, demons, spirits of dead demons, or aliens like E.T., the Predator, and Will Smith. The opponent may issue refutation in this round. My argument is as follows: 1. Poltergeists are worthy of worship insofar as they can vouchsafe for us a direct experience of the supernatural, proving life after death, a spiritual realm, and the existenc...

Does the islamic state represent islam?

Anthonyd114
dragonfire1414

The islamic state does represent islam. IS practices islam in its purest form. Surah 9 aya 5 of the quran permits the killing of non muslims who do not convert to islam. Surah 9 aya 25 sanctions a jizya against non muslims and allows fighting against the ones who don't pay. Hadith allow the killing of apostates. All practiced by the Islamic State. The Islamic State represents the way islam was practiced from the time of muhammad through the time of the caliphs....

Public Prayer Should Not Be Allowed In School

Solomon_Orlando

We must go back to our first amendment that gives us the freedom of speech.(1) Now if we think about this topic there are going to be many guidelines among this. Shall we force students to pray at school? No, because there is separation between church and state. But, should we stop students from being allowed to pray in schools? No because we do have freedom of speech. Also in our first amendment we are given the freedom of religion. So although we cannot be forced to believe something, then we...
