Pretty 'cocky' aren't you ?
Nothing wrong with questioning authority at all.
I love it when my son's question things , even when they question me.
Where is my reply ?
Try again .. I love it when my son's debate things with me . There is nothing wrong with questioning authority . It's healthy .
I replied to a comment above that is now deleted... maybe you question brainwashing .. that's a good thing .
Why can't I reply ?
So, even if you may be intelligent and articulate, that does not mean that you're intellectual. An intellectual debate is an open conversation ba<x>sed on experience and knowledge, a dialogue without any defeat or victory
Do you own a fedora?
lol.. what does that have to do with it ? Old soul ?
I'm checking for a stereotype.
Reading the comments, this is like chess for you, isn't it? Can we play chess instead?
I'm sure there are websites where you can play chess with other people.
Well, which subject is it that you would like to debate?
I shall take the position of going against this statement.
We going to get a topic for this? And religion is a horrible subject. Leaps of faith are bad for logicery and reasonobilitudeness.
Do you mean in general? Or only in extrodinary circumstances?
I'll take the negative. But there's a good chance I'm going to crash soon so if this is good fun might have to take a recess and resume later.
You know what? I can't follow the layout on this site worth a damn and I have no idea what's going on. We'll do this another day. I'm always down for a challenge.
I will, name your topic.
I really hope this isn't a way to gather more information about your high school research paper. The media should not be moderated, hiding the truth about the world and local happenings (even though the media is often wrong and they offer the 'new's in their own way) just blinds people and empowers them with a more biased view of the already biased events in modern society.
We don't allow it, you have to acknowledge the fact that most people living under any type of pre-established society with governments and laws already blindly accept this type of "media" which is more commonly seen as a way of awareness. Most people believe what they're told and therefore pose no objection to the given information being delivered by the media. This does not directly harm anyone, so the conflict at hand is more of awareness than anything else. In that sense, false empowerment is not better than blind conflict.
False empowerment enables people to act on something, this in return MAY lead to an even greater conflict or give birth to a new one.
"or to falsely believing that you know what you speak of?" I don't know what you mean here, are you referring to ME not knowing what I'm presenting? Anyways. It's better to be unaware, why must you further this already spoken point?
Does God exist?
I'll let you decide that.
Okay. So, God isn't real. Any documentation is from the creative mind of man. All experiences are fabricated due to mans desire to reason something beyond himself. All patterns seen to be provided as evidence of intelligent design are only done so in further attempts to live within reasoning of the existence of such an entity.
I agree that the idea of God exists within man, and that ideas are passed through lifetimes. This can be seen with in documentation and monuments: physical expressions that further the idea. However, many ideas come that aren't necessarily true: for example, the church of the flying spaghetti monster. This may not be as popular depiction of God, but it is an idea of God nonetheless that furthers the existence of itself.
The point is, that the idea of God is real, but doesn't prove the existence of God. All it proves is that the imagination of man hurtles both forward and backward in time to distill an understanding of something potentially infinite, which is impossible, for humanity is not. Therefore, proving the existence of God is impossible.
I say that there was never a body. And if there is no body, then the one said to be of it does not exist.
I promise I'll tie this bow after I've slept.
Thanks for helping me sleep. lol <3 I wasn't expecting a conversation like this to help but it did.
