Interested:No Answer Occupation:Other
Looking:No Answer Religion:Christian - Latter-Day Saints
About Me:I love to learn...I like especially when I can get to the heart of a matter and understand the main points and why something is the way it is.
Activities:Church, friends, video games, weight lifting, etymology
Beliefs:Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon). I know that God is real and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he was crucified for the sins of the world. I know that personal Revelation is real and that God can communicate with us. There is a living prophet and apostles on the earth today. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is the word of God. My life is about religion, trying to save my soul by repenting as much as I can here and I also desire to influence as many people as I can to salvation or towards salvation as I can.
Books:Book of Mormon (I encourage everyone to read it! It is the most spiritual book in the world), Bible, What it Means to Know Christ -George Pace, Approaching Zion - Hugh Nibley, The People Code
Movies:I like many sci-fi and comedy movies. Crossroads (with Ralph Machio), Star Wars, Lord of the Rings
Music:Various: Queensryche, fast guitar players (ex: Yngwie Malmsteen, Michaelangelo Baito), some Diana Krall, some songs of Lacuna Coil, sometimes blues, rarely classical and big band although I enjoy them when I do.
Quotes:The true worth of a man is to be measured by the objects he pursues.- Marcus Aurelius

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

Don't not go to church because there are too many hypocrites there, there is always room for one more.
Sports Teams:I like watching the NFL: I like the New England Patriots! ...also I am a "hater" --> I go against Denver, against Dallas and against the Raiders.
TV Shows:I like the Big Bang Theory (even though I'm a Creationist). America's Funniest Videos. I don't watch a lot of TV...computer is better!

Should illegal drugs be legalised?

It is first off worth noting that drug abuse is a widespread problem. However when it comes to drug overdoses, most of these are pharmaceutical drugs, and legal highs tend to make up a significant proportion of the rest. Illegal drugs are actually only a very small proportion of overall drug overdoses. My first argument is that when people take illegal drugs nowadays, most of them are fine. The vast majority of them will not become addicted. The vast majority of them enjoy it responsibly. It...

Resolved: There was a cover up on 9/11/01 of the demolition of WTC 1 and 2.

During the debate I will attempt to show that it is much more likely that the towers were destroyed by demolition than by fire as the official story claims. There are other parts of the cover up that I will discuss also. 1. Towers (WTC 1 and 2) ---The towers exhibit more characteristics of being destroyed by "controlled demolition" rather than being destroyed by a plane crash and fire like described in the NIST report. A. The Towers were built to withstand a plane flying into it. John S...

Agnosticism is self-contradictory in at least one way.

I believe that the doctrine of agnosticism inherently has at least one thing in it that does not make logical sense and I want to explore that idea more. I'm not super formal as a debater just so my opponent is aware. I will start with a definition and then, if my opponent agrees, we can go from there. Definition: Agnostic - noun a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neithe...

Guitarist Duel

heart_of_the_matter
sashaperry

I would like to propose a "Guitar Duel"! The judges will be able to rate the guitarists on any criteria they want to... To decide which "team" of 5 guitarists is better! My 5 guitarists vs. my opponent's 5 guitarists! ... ------------ RULES: 1. Each side chooses one guitarist per round 2. The guitarists can be living or dead. 3. Each person gets to pick 5 guitarists. Once a guitarist has been chosen the other side cannot choose him. 4. Each side gets to post one video of them...
