RadeCrow
SamuelWH

Personally, I am against the death penalty for many reasons. The main reason is that I do not believe the state should have the power to choose who lives and dies. But, There are still many other reasons that I believe abolishing the death penalty would be beneficial. First off, The death penalty is very expensive a death row inmate would cost an average of $1. 12 million more than a regular prisoner (Source: Susquehanna University "The Death Penalty vs. Life Incarceration: A Financial Analys...

The B. O. P. Is always upon those that believe in a god to prove that a god exists no exceptions, None

Atheists are not proposing that we know what the laws of the absolutes are. Theists are proposing that and that"s why they always have the B. O. P. No sorry. The B. O. P. Is entirely upon theists every single time, No exceptions, None. Why? THEISTS CAN'T EVEN PROVE THEY'RE GOD EXISTS! Atheists are not the ones proposing what the restrictions and confinements are. Theists are. That's why the B. O. P. Is ---always--- upon them. That's the laws they set. If they don't like it then they should not...

Virtue Signaling is real and a form of dishonesty. Therefore it should be seen as a character flaw.

TheUnexaminedLife

Virtue signalling is the act of expressing an action or attitude based on social trends rather than on the basis of personal integrity. Occasionally coinciding with blatent hypocrisy, Virtue signalling can also be determined as meaningless gestures to signal ones supposed allegiance to a popular cause. I am asserting that virtue signalling as described here is very real. It should be viewed as a form of moral dishonesty and looked down on....

Weed should be completely legalized across the U. S. A.

RadeCrow
SamuelWH

We waste tons of money and resources arresting people for weed. In 2019 alone 545, 602 marijuana-related arrests were made wasting valuable police time and money. Apart from that, There is nothing morally wrong with deciding to smoke weed and people should be allowed to do what they want with their bodies. Comparatively, Alcohol has resulted in many deaths (95, 000 per year) and so far there are 0 reported deaths from marijuana. For those reasons and others, I believe marijuana should be legaliz...

Everyone should get the vaccine

brodiescott76

I'm tired of the pandemic. We're all tired of the pandemic. I'm also tired of staying at home all the time and miss the intimacy of the pre-pandemic world. For those reasons, Everyone who is able to get vaccinated SHOULD be vaccinated. Once we build up herd immunity from the vaccine, Things can all go back to normal. Even if you think the virus is a sham (which it's not), You can at least get behind getting vaccinated so we don't have to social distance and wear masks for years to come. The...

Why doesn't god present any proof that it exists? That would be the ENTIRE fault of god, Not man

backwardseden
JaysonBecker

It is entirely god's fault for not demonstrating to me and or to anyone that it exists, All the time, No exceptions, None. 1. This supposed god is unwilling to show up which is not the fault of anybody and that is the fault of this unproven god that nobody can prove exists and the entire blame and fault would go towards this god that it did not provide any proof of its existence in which is the case here should it exist or 2. This unproven god can"t show up which would mean that it is not omni...
