About Me:I'm outspoken with humanistic values and logical to the core. My background is in research and my debates tend to be more technical. So far my favorite debate here has been on God being such a jerk.
Activities:racquetball, chess, lock systems, reading, learning election systems, research and statistics
Beliefs:I am progressive and feel that the current US democratic party is a failure. The US voting system is in shambles and our government has been branded by corporations. The mainstream media is a self centered six company corporate festival and Bill Clinton encouraged this situation through the Telecommunications Act of 1999. Naturally, I feel confident in being correct, which I attempt to support through argument. It is my goal in debates here and otherwise to make my side so clearly superior and the opposition side so dismal that it is literally embarrassing to take the other view.

Safe sex should be taught in public schools instead of abstinence.

The number of growing teen pregnancies and STD rates across the United States proves: abstinence education simply is not doing the job. Teens are just too impulsive to not have sex, especially in this day and age, where sex is everywhere one turns. The media teaches teens to have sex. There is not enough education on how to be safe. While one might think "we all know how to use a condom", there is not enough education. Especially common is the myth that using two or three condoms is better than...

If a Single God Exists and Is Responsible For Creating Our World, This God Is a Jerk

~~~ My Main Argument ~~~ Claim: If a Single God Exists and Is Responsible For Creating Our World, This God Is a Jerk God is defined here as an infallible, all knowing, and all powerful being responsible for the creation of all that is. Somehow this God has managed to always exist and predate all that has ever been. Jerk is defined here as a being whose behavior is hurtful, self-centered, or particularly abrasive. My evidence is that God deposited some pretty nasty genetic diseases and...

Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs

Claim: Abortion Is Morally Permissible in Most Cases for which It Occurs Argument: Over 98% of abortion cases happen prior to the 21st week of pregnancy(1). Over 59% of abortion cases happen prior to the 9th week of pregnancy(1). My argument will rest on maintaining that abortion is morally permissible at least up to nine weeks into the pregnancy. 1. http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abortion.html...
