An individual should be a drug addict.

TinyBudha

Hola, this debate is of course about whether or not one should be a drug addict. This sounds pretty obvious but I contend the resolution is true. The burden will be on CON as it should be pretty simple to explain, assuming I can prove this is ever true, I win. This will have to do with the individual.

Thus, it can be said that with your career, you can seek happiness....

Rather, I use a more general, commonplace definition in which gods are either supernatural creators of the universe or even simply supernatural entities that are responsible for a specific aspect of the universe (for example, Poseidon is the god of the ocean, or Mars is the god of war). That is not to say that God cannot...

I am here to prove that I am the only person with free will! This first round is for the Con side to present their argument first. Please do not expect me to quote sources, this is (for me) for sheer brain power, not googling stuff! Good luck!...
