Do you know anything about Heidegger?

No. Except that he studied ontology.

Ideally, I'd like to pick a random topic that neither of us has any knowledge on whatsoever.

The USFG should legalize all drugs (Pro). The US should abolish capital punishment (Pro). On balance, a fence along the southern border of the US is desirable (Con). Justice requires the recognition of animal rights (Pro). The US should adopt a ban on same-sex marriage (Con). The US should adopt a ban on all induced abortion (Con).

I would debate you on any of these.
But they're all so cliche... the site already has seen several good debates on all of 'em.
Let's do border fence, just cuz it hasn't been done as much as the others.

I'll probably work in research, specifically ethology and interspecies relationships.

I'm writing a novel currently, so I spend lots of time writing. Reading. Listening to music.

I don't post the bi-weekly topics. People submit OP's to me, I review them, and asked them to submit them. I have them stickied. One highlighted OP is posted into each of the forums every two-weeks; there's only one highlighted OP at a time.

Perhaps after schooling. But the education system is much better here at the school level.

Favorite - Kerala, because the majority of its population is educated (around 95%). Perhaps Gujarat and Delhi as well. Least favorite - Haryana. Its policies are too conservative for my liking.

Should Hinduism be considered polytheistic with many gods or monotheistic as in all the gods represent aspects of one God?

Yes.

Not really. It's possible that the China/India border conflict will escalate, but not so fast, especially as diplomatic relations are becoming better.


Should Hinduism be considered polytheistic with many gods or monotheistic as in all the gods represent aspects of one God?

I think there are many aspects, polytheistic and monotheistic. But it would be best to ask a Hindu, because I'm not really sure. My knowledge of Hinduism is probably equal to yours.


What's it like being an atheist in India?

I don't understand the question. It's just like being an atheist anywhere else.

In many religious countries like Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia being an atheist - or at the very least talking about atheism can get you killed. In the US I don't have to worry about that. Do you have to worry about being murdered for your non-religious views?

No, lol. India is a secular state. It's perfectly safe and alright.
