There Are Good Secular Reasons to Disallow Same-Sex Marriage

Contradiction
HonestDiscussioner

HonestDiscussioner and I have agreed on terms. I will launch immediately into my opening statement.~The state regulates marriage for a reason. It dispenses benefits for a reason. Understanding what this reason is will tell us what criteria are and are not relevant to marriage, and thus whether any rights are being denied. If the state excludes same-sex couples from entering into legal marriages on the basis of criteria relevant to the public purpose of marriage, then it is clear that no rights o...

Contradiction

Gay marriage seems to take up a lot of debate nowadays, and I wanted to get my opinion out in the open.

Can Intelligence exist before matter?

Rational_Thinker9119
Contradiction

I would like to articulate a point rarely touched upon when discussing the existence God and if it's logical or not. Can intelligence exist before matter? If there was a person born who couldn't feel, smell, taste, hear or see they would have nothing to think about, I mean what could that person think about? They've experienced nothing. They have had no experience involving matter. Now imagine an intelligence with senses working, but no matter, what would that intelligence have to thi...
