Resolved: Uchiha is Zaradi.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.

uh... i don't think i want to debate abiogenesis with you, since you're a legitimate scientist, while the extent of my knowledge on the topic is a high school course on it plus some extra reading...

but i'm totally down for either the strong atheism one or the animal experimentation one. depends on which one you would rather do.

didn't you want to do something along the lines of 'suicide is immoral'?

correct.

Euthanasia (Pro)
Con, what type of euthanasia are you talking about?

voluntary

Gun Control (Pro)
Con, depends on what type of Gun Control.

registering guns, banning high capacity magazines, universal background checks, etc.


I can also do: Resolved: When fallowing the 10 commandments only, it is impossible to get into heaven. (Pro)

Resolved: God has sinned/expierenced sin. (Pro).

don't have enough knowledge of christian theology to successfully argue against either of those.

Con, what type of euthanasia are you talking about?

Still would be Con due to the slippery slope argument.

Con, depends on what type of Gun Control.

registering guns, banning high capacity magazines, universal background checks, etc.

that's actually a pretty interesting idea...
wouldn't scholarships and financial aid programs sufficiently make up for the economic disadvantage, though?

I know you've been wanting to debate me for a while. I'll make sure it happens, at some point. I'm apparently on a lot of player's list. I'm not sure if it's because I'm good or because I'm viewed as over rated. Probably a combination of both.
