This has got to be one of the most detrimental things to the site:
http://debate.org...

99% of these people don't even have accounts here and what they write is completely and utterly retarded.

It doesn't foster much rational discussion, to be honest. I'd prefer debates as opposed to a set of opinions and unwarranted statements contrasting each other. Moreover, the opinions of the members who are not even part of the community here should not be used as an archetype or representation of our attitudes to these "issues"......

I'd say 99.9% of what is written in the opinions is retarded, but there is that .1%...

Well, of course. We can't switch to categorical statements, though that doesn't undermine the validity of OP's concern (lol).

I agree,...stating your opinions and walking off unchallenged is the antithesis of debate and the very purpose of this site. I think that section should be torn down

"I have not seen any evidence of this. People in the government may be swayed one way or another by what they believe religiously, but I do not think that the government is allowing people of certain faiths to control what we do. If this was the case, then we would not have wars, because the Bible states thou shall not kill."

Yes It is under obligation to take care of its Citizens Think of what Government does on our behalf? It tells us what is right and wrong, what is legal and illegal, what civilized and uncivilized behaviour. What does all that do to a child? It tell him how to live in the world and the way he can survive in the world with freedom and free will. Now if you don't take care of the child and don't teach him civilized ways to live in the world who is responsible for the wrongs he would commit for survival and livelihood? Remember the natural resources and the earth is for everybody (every living thing). You can't tell a person that if you don't have money you don't have right to survive.... his right to survive is independent of everything else, if we don't want him to do something illegal for survival.

It's embarrassing, isn't it? (lol)

"No, atheism is not a sound philosophy in the modern world, because the more we know about science the more it supports creation.

The theory of evolution is just that: a theory.
There isn't any sound evidence to support it and, in fact, the fossil records actually support the Biblical account of how things were created. Atheism appeals to people because they don't want to be held accountable for their actions. It's not because they don't believe there is a higher intelligence responsible for our existence. Even modern scientists are rethinking their positions, and admitting that scientific evidence supports the notion of an intelligent creator with a purpose in mind."

This. No-one is under the impression that people's opinions have inherently worth. I am looking forward to some kind of thumbs up/down system.

Number 1) I like the opinions section and all of its retarded opinions, its a freaking gold mine for the weekly stupid

Number 2) What if that update where people can rate opinions is implemented and the ratings can boost better opinions up and push the stupider opinions down the list?

I agree with the above statement. Number 2 sounds just like most voting websites, and i completely agree. Implementation of a "like/dislike" button like on youtube to give ratings for each opinion would be great. Stupidity would always be dead last (Assuming the idiots that write these opinions really just get on to write opinions, as most of them are inactive)
