About Me:I'm a junior in high school. I'm a very introverted person, with an INTJ personality type (though I realize that MBTI displays major deficiencies). I joined this site in early 2015, in the seventh grade, and it has since changed my life significantly. My past activity on this site doesn't represent my current opinions on many issues. My position on the political compass is -3.5, -6. I'm also bisexual.
Activities:I spend most of my time on school-related activities. In addition to that, I participate in formal debate, in the World Schools and British Parliamentary formats. I also frequently read books, listen to music, and write articles, mostly for my blog.
Beliefs:I'm a modern liberal and a feminist. I believe in representative democracy under a constitutional framework that emphasizes the protection of minorities. I also support a strong, independent central banking system, environmental protection, LGBT rights, and comprehensive animal welfare legislation. In terms of philosophy, I'm a rule utilitarian, an agnostic atheist, an existentialist, and a moral realist.
Books:Sapiens, What Happened, Understanding Power, Manufacturing Consent, Collapse, Animal Liberation, Practical Ethics, The Extended Phenotype, David and Goliath, The Point of View of the Universe, Sophie's World, Feminism Is For Everybody, The Story of Philosophy, We Were Eight Years in Power

Does God exist?

Moelogy

No kritiks. "God" is defined as "a sentient, conscious entity that created the universe," or an "omnipotent, transcendent being." If I affirm either one of those definitions, I win; Con needs to negate both of those definitions. First round is for acceptance. BOP is shared....

In 2019 government should be of BJP

tejretics

I think for the development of country like India we need a government that can take bold decisions. This is not a time when a government would survive only by protecting its vote bank or to win sympathy of a particular section. A leader should invest fund in the growth of country rather than his own future. Infrastructure of country should be developed so that we can stand proudly in front of world....

Varrack

Pro has to defend abortion being legal for some period of time during pregnancy. Con has to defend bans on all abortion except in cases where abortion is required to save the parent's life and in cases of sexual assault. First round is for acceptance. No new arguments in the final round....

Hayd

Hayd must start in Round 1, and waive the final round. All rounds up until Hayd's Round 2 and my Round 3 should be copy/pasted from here (http://www.debate.org/debates/The-US-should-abolish-affirmative-action/1/)....
