9/11 was not an inside job.

The evidence for 9/11 being an inside job is factually deceiving, and requires many assumptions. For example, claims that the buildings fell at freefall speeds ignore the obvious debris that fell faster than the collapse, seen in this image: http://i.imgur.com/ny6BLbn.png Also, claims that WTC 7 was destroyed in a controlled demolition do not take into account any of the information from the NIST report which explored WHY the buildings fell. The investigation showed that the load bearing s...

The Iraq War began on March 20, 2003 with the invasion of Iraq by troops from the United States and Great Britain. This war has also come to be known by several other names including Operation Iraqi Freedom and the Second Gulf War.

The United Nations asked Iraq to cooperate w...

Masonic(7,74) Code(4): GOD=7_4, 7/4=July 4th. Freemasons laid dow the BIGGEST code in history!

GOD=7_4 whereas G is the 7th letter, a circle, D is 4. The ancients observed the 7 Classical Planets: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and 4 of thee don't cast shadows on Earth (Venus does)/4 can't be easily seen during the day (Venus can be). There are 4 lunar phases roughly 7 days (~7.4 days) each varying due to apogee and perigee. Lunar year + 7 day week +4 days = 365 day solar year. Mars has a 47 year cycle where it retu...

Should the death penalty be used on violent criminals?

DestinyFate
Scarmiglione

Death simply is too fast, and does not teach a lesson to criminals. The death penalty would take away just ONE criminal life for many other lives that were killed by it. There should be a non-violent punishment(like making dangerous criminals go to a soundproof dark room for one day, and then keeping them in prison). A life-sentence without parole is also a good way to teach criminals their lesson....

Printed journalism is still a relevant and worthwhile medium

samsvo
Dishoungh

This debate is over whether printed journalism (i.e magazines, newspapers) are worthwhile and relevant in this heavily technologically developed age. I am pro and my opponent is con. Instead of defining "worthwhile" and "relevant" individually, I will make the claim that, if printed journalism were to cease to exist, it would have a large and mainly negative effect on the world as a whole. Con will be arguing that, if such a thing were to happen, there would be a small or largel...
