Is God benevolent?

tomasscience
fred70

God has been said to be benevolent, and loving of all of humanity, but this is very contradictory to what actually happens in the Bible. In the Bible, God is seen committing genocide and ordering the murder of hundreds. He places misogynistic rules, and rules that are completely absurd. He says that it is okay to have slaves, and even talks about how to treat them, how they must obey and how they are to be traded. A benevolent god would never kill so many people, or place rules that wou...

Resolved: The police should be privatized

ColorodoKoolAid
Dujec

Police services should be private for the same reason that health care, food production, and housing should be private; it is more efficient. When firms operate for profit they are incentivized to satisfy consumers' preferences quickly, cheaply, and efficiently. If they fail to satisfy consumers, they will quickly cease to exist. Examples of these incentives are evident in our everyday lives. If I order something from Amazon and it gets lost in the mail, they will send me a new item with no ques...

Not a huge grammar nazi but like I said make it clear First round is for acceptance and throughout you can say your stance and add new e...

So you are left with two descions. Either let 5 people die, or murder 1 to save 4 more people. I would pull the lever to save more lives....

Are books better than TV?

mbrownie
sboss18

I believe that books are better than TV. You see, TV rots kids, adults, seniors, teens, and everyone's brains, where books transport them to a wonderful new place that could have happened eighty years ago, or about someone important, instead of watching a TV documentary about them, you can easily open a book and be transported there. Forget about commercials, and all you need is a good spot to read and a book you were planning on reading. Books are for the future, and even though TV is more tec...

Should there be censorship in schools and communities?

Tyler151
Agonist

No, it should not because it is intolerance. Censorship is intolerance. We think uncensored things will make our children "go bad" but we are just being intolerant of new ideas, old ideas, art, books, music... the list goes on and on. It is just intolerance....
