"The successful solution to every problem we ever face will always be MORE freedom, not less."

bsergent

Imagine the following... You have a patient who for the moment needed to be restrained. And in restraining the person you noticed that they are harming themselves less. But they continue to struggle and the wrists are becoming damaged, so you apply more strap to the upper arms, and this protects the wrists. You realize that this was only a temporary solution, and regret it being the only option you could think of and set about finding a real solution, wit your loyal but somewhat dim assis...

The theory of evolution is compatible with mainstream religion

Tatarize
killa_connor

Modern mainstream theological thought is not compatible with evolution. Not simply inconsistent with the Genesis' literal account but evolution itself is undermining to the core claims religions mainstream religions make. 1) You are special. 2) God created life (with or without evolution). 3) Perfect/Good creation. A good understanding of evolution is deadly to these claims. Denial to these claims is deadly to religion. A) Evolution does not hold that you are special. One of the def...

Two does not, and never will, equal one, and debating it on this site is pointless

TheLibertarian

OK, so recently, I have been noticing a great deal of debates that are all centered on the same thing. "Two equals one." Now, I am going to be completely honest, I am not a math genius. I realize that I will probably never do a career in mathematics, but I'm pretty sure the first thing we learned in elementary school is that one plus one equals.....wait for it... TWO! So to say that one equals two would pretty much prove almost all mathematical theories, and while it is possible, I doubt that a...

Censorship is alive and well on debate.org.

bsergent

While this site may purport to support controversy and discussion of relevant social issues, and total trivia in some cases such as who's cuter than who or which comic book character is tougher, when pressed it is just as capable of bias and cowardice as any other privately owned expression media. http://www.debate.org/debates/Just-because-you-are-so-cute-You-are-a-terrorist./1 ...was removed because of a heated debate that developed on the nature of the typical American mating paradigm o...

Should the Genesis account of creation be read literally?

3DCrew
killa_connor

This is one of those "nagging" questions that Christians, Jews, and Muslims all have to deal with at some point. I can't say that I have a sure answer at this point but I am surely leaning toward "yes". First, let's define the bounds of the assertion. I'm speaking of the assertions that the bible makes about the genesis of the universe, the Earth, Sun, and us. My core sticking point is the story of Adam and Eve. I would be inclined to opt for a more liberal interpretation accept for this one...

In defense of McCarthy

SolaGratia
killa_connor

My position on McCarthy is this. I regard it as the only sensible position, but it's actually in the middle of the spectrum. As they say, the truth of the matter always lies in the middle. I. McCarthy, who had access to State Department and FBI files, knew what he was talking about. He was right in most of his accusations. II. His conduct, however, left a lot to be desired. He was often confrontational. Not to the witnesses he was questioning; in fact he was in general courteous to them,...

Universal Healthcare be provided to all American citizens

USMCgal625

Quick, try to think of one government office that runs efficiently. The Department of Transportation? Social Security Administration? Department of Education? There isn't a single government department that squeezes efficiency out of every dollar the way a private sector can. We've all heard stories of the government's waste of millions of dollars on frivilous concerns such as the million dollar cow flatulence study or the Pentagon's 14 billion dollar Bradley design project that resulted in a ve...
