Spanking your child is considered abuse

ctfurn24
GenesisCreation

I have no idea as to why parents think its okay to hit children. Even if a child is acting out violence is never the answer. Not only is hitting a child hurting them physically, but it's also emotionally and socially hurting them. Some children grow up to be an extremely violent person. A child that gets abused at home is most likely to end up being socially unstable and may even suffer from severe depression. There are so many cases in the world where a child had been killed by their abusive pa...

Altering our body to be fit for society...

Throughout our lives, society has told us how we should look to be deemed beautiful. We try to reach an impossible goal, and waste effort in trying to achieve that goal.

i would request that the following debate be in Lincoln Douglas format with the exception of the negative beginning the argument God is dead, god remains dead and we have killed him. - Nietzsche. The death of God is a way of saying that humans are no longer able to believe in any such cosmic order since they themselves no longer recognize it. The death of God will lead, Nietzsche says, not only to the rejection of a belief of cosmic or physical order but also to a rejection of absolute values...

What is more important humanity as a whole, or parts of humanity (individuals)

THEBOMB
mb852

I believe that the whole is more important than the parts. Without the whole there can be no parts. For example, two 1s make a 2 but without a 2 there are no 1s. The whole has to be preserved over parts. This ensures the human race will survive....

PrincessNene
KingKasual

Well i have some reason that the drinking age should be lowered to 18 because we are considered an adult by the age of 18 but that is still considered underage drinking,but for the people that drink do it unsafely and can end up getting hurt or even die because they do not have a safe environment to drink....
