Does your ATAR define you?

TheGreatSage985

How can the number they give you define you? How can you give up after you go through a system that has no relation to the real world? When you get a job, Sure you get deadlines but you are allowed to use by recourse available to you. However, The exams that students go through not only limit the use of what you may have but put you in an environment where you can't work to the best of your ability. Put in a room with hundreds of others being watched constantly, For some this alone allows them t...

The universe is a very simple place. By using the laws of parsimony or Occam"s razor, We can reduce the complexity of the universe. According to the law of parsimony, Which is the problem-solving principle that the simplest solution tends to be the correct one when presented with competing hypotheses to solve a problem; one should select the solution with the fewest assumptions.

" The fact of the matter is, Is that it doesn't exist. Not anywhere. So in fact your unpro...

Leaning

An interesting question for all of you religious lunatics out there. ( We will assume God exists in this one) If you know that the offspring you make could be subject to everlasting pain, Anguish, And fire in hell then why have them? At first, It sounds like a dumb question but think about it deeper. If there's a chance of your future kids burning forever why take it? It seems evil to do. No, It IS evil to do so....

Gay rights

DeletedUser

My argument FOR gay rights: Gay rights do not affect the health OR integrity of those who are not a part of the LGBT+ community. Gay marriage doesn't affect people who are not homosexual. A gay person SHOULDN'T be killed for being gay, Or for being in a homosexual relationship. We are humans and we should be able to love who we love. Gay rights doesn't mean restricting your speech. However, Freedom of speech does not garuntee freedom of social consequence, And if you say something homop...
