Centrist Politicians are Gone Forever

Joyce22
sansvoix

Partisanship in our county is at an all time high and it will only get worse. There is no hope for cooperation unless there is a a massive upheaval in our political system. Independents like Greg Orman of Kansas ( http://www.kwch.com/news/local-news/greg-orman-wife-sybil-sit-down-with-eyewitness-news/29109894 ) rarely get through the primary and if they do there is still enormous opposition from either or both opposing parties. Other Independents like Angus King of Maine (http://www.ontheissues....

Does a loving, Christian God exist?

HeraldSarah
mfigurski80

In this case, my definition of God is a singular entity who is completely good, all-powerful, and all wise. If this God exists, then why is evil so abundant in the world? Terrible things happen throughout time, a continuous stream of events with "bad" and "good" events happening constantly. An analogy given in "The Case for Faith", a book written by Lee Strobel, brings up the argument that Peter Kreeft made, which describes the following scenario: A bear is caught in a trap, and a human attempt...

It is possible to eliminate the national debt for the U.S.

Thefightforfreedom

It is possible using these steps: 1. Move the national capital to a small village. 2. Hold a referendum to separate the rest of the country from the new capital and win it to create a new country. 3. The new country has no debt, since the national debt belongs to the old one. Wait until the old country goes bankrupt. 4. Once the old country settled its accounts with the creditors, invade it and annex it. 5. Repeat for an infinite national fund....

Gravity can be defined as pressure resulting from space displacement

This is a very loose, underdeveloped theory of mine that may or may not already exist. I expect to be torn apart by someone knowledgeable in GR and physics; however, given the mysterious nature of gravity, and the variety of theories claiming to understand it, I figured what the heck? Here's another one. I have no debate rules, just stay on the topic of gravity, and hopefully we can have a fun, informative exchange. Here is my theory: Gravity is nothing more than pressure being exerted on an...

Gun Control

patton579
laqueenlee

Two words that send a shiver down my spine. Gun Control. It's just not right. I'm going to provide 3 key points to support why gun control is a very bad idea. The first is the original reason the 2nd Amendment was put in place. That was to make sure that every citizen was armed and ready to rise up against the government in case it became tyrannical because the colonists had just fought a war against one of those governments. My second argument is for self defense. I'm sure you wouldn't want you...

THW Ban nuclear energy

Tharunkrishant
dsjpk5

It is unfortunately the case that the nuclear industry has a bad reputation for safety. This is undeserved. The overwhelming majority of nuclear reactors have functioned safely and effectively for their entire lifetimes. The four historic nuclear disasters (1957 Windscale Fire, 1979 Three Mile Island and 1986 Chernobyl, 2011 Fukushima, Japan) killed fewer people than the oil and coal industries have1. "The multi-agency U.N. Chernobyl Forum reported last year that 56 deaths could be directly attr...

Creation and Evolution are both Religions

CreationGuy
alexcasey

Creation and Evolution are both Religions I am a Young Earth Creationist who believes that God created everything in six literal 24hrs days. The earth can be proved to be 6000 years old and it is not billions of years. Evolution is not a theory it is a religion.We can agreed we have the same evidence but different conclusions. Now Evolution is not scientific but it it used in the textbooks like it is. I am not against science . I love science . I am only against the lies in the textbooks! Pl...

Existance of God

NathanaelsOption
miller3317

Hi. I'm my name is Nathanael and I'm 16. I believe people believe in god because they don't have another answer. In other words they follow a non-existent thing to compensate for their ignorance because they're scared of the unknown and want to make it known by any means necessary including convincing themselves there is a higher power. What I don't get is why people push this on their children. Why not teach them all ways and let them decide what they choose. I was forced into religion but now...
