Male Evolution Versus Female Evolution (I believe Female Evolution needs more attention).

Aerogant
kl31

Back in the stone age, the primitive side of the brain was influencing the people over the practical side of the brain. The males created wars, excuses, power and control to get what they wanted, while the females, being biologically structured to be loved, not understood, had to be loved in a terrible sense of the word by the ruling of men. As civilization reached its peak of blood and death, people slowly started waking up to a more advanced way of controlling people without blood baths - the...

For many philosophers, to believe in free will is to believe that human beings can be the authors of their own actions and to reject the idea that human actions are determined by conditions or fate."I will argue that human actions are determined by conditions, and my opponent shall have to argue that human decisions are not bound by conditions. Debate Structure:R1 Rules and Acceptance by my opponentR2...

Since Pascal's Wager implies God is there or may be there to pay off on wagering that He is or may be there, you cannot play Pascal's Wager as an atheist, as an atheist believes there is nobody to pay off the bet and therefore nothing to be won by playing Pasca...

Any questions, please ask in the comments before accepting. Any confusion that arises that could've been avoided with a simple qu...
