A couple decided to commit suicide after a horrible life. They decided to jump off a building. When they got to the top, they both counted to three. The wife jumped, but the husband stayed. The husband watched the wife drop for about 8 seconds and then saw a parachute open. Who betrayed who?I believe that the husband betrayed his wife more than his wife betrayed him.Basically, the husband has betrayed the wife.I will argue my case, after this...

lannan13

Alright. It's time to announce the Contender, chosen by me: I'll debate lannan13, as I'm intrigued of their arguments.Rules:1) Under lannan13's request, the definition of God will be "The mind that grounds reality".

The Contender will have to make it seem plausible for God to exist. 3) No forfeiting or runni...

I hope som...

First round acceptance only plea...
