Landfills are a better option than incinerators for waste disposal

qwerty17
the_asian_on_the_web

1. Most new landfills are built as lined facility, with leachate collection and treatment on-site. Because landfills are designed and built to store waste, they are a safe containment of our garbage. 2. Methane gas is collected at a number of municipal waste landfills and some landfills have diesel/gas blended fuel fired electrical generation stations built on them. Therefore, they are a "free" source of fuel to generate electricity. 3. Upon closing of a landfill, some beneficial usage o...

Gay Marriage

TobyJohnScanlon1
harrytruman

I think gay marriage should be allowed, because it's not harming straight people. Banning gays marring each other will not make them straight, so we might as well as allow them to marry. Also, everybody should have the right to marry, so only allowing people who marry to be straight is just unfair. Also for the people who say that 'Becuz teh biball sed so we shouldaint allow dam gays to marry meens tey shouldaint marry', the bible never condemned gay marriage, it only said 'Do not have sexual re...

God's existence

RogueAthiest
tar62800

God is omnipotent. God is also omnipresent. God is omnipresent which means God lacks the ability to leave a room. If God lacks the ability to leave a room then God doesn't have all powers (omnipotent) and if God is not omnipotent then God, isn't God. Let's say for a second that God isn't omnipresent, and God is omnipotent then that'd make sense. Right? No, because if God has every power, God would be able to create an object that cannot be lifted up, then God cannot lift it. Therefore God...
