For the record, I will be using a presuppositional apologetic approach to this topic. Round 1: acceptance Round 2: opening arguments Round 3: rebuttals Round 4: rebuttals and defense Round 5: closing statements...

The overall purpose of philosophical argument should be to answer the question of how best to live

Icebox415
GoOrDin

Philosophy over time has rarely dealt with the most important question. How do we live best in this lifetime? Philosophical content and argument is too oftentimes tied up in semantics and questions that have no bearing on our lives. It's not related to the common man and has therefore lost perspective on what the purpose of philosophy should be....

I think being LBGT is a choice, not genetics.

Mr.Lee
Burls

The reason why I think this is simple. Throughout the course of the development of human life, anything that would prevent the reproductive process would be eliminated if it was genetic, solely because it would die out. This especially pertains to Natural Selection and Darwinistic thinking. I believe that it is a choice, just like your favorite color, favorite band, or something similar. This is just my opinion, and I do not mean to be offensive to anyone. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watc...
