    Re: Are ODN "atheists" theophobiacs?

    Despite that rather long sarcastic insult, I still think that Even is incorrect. Though I'd disagree on the meaning of "theophobic" in that, based on the roots of the words, it should only apply to...
  2. Re: folks who protest at funerals are sleazy scumbags

    That would entirely depend on the debate, would it not? There is a big difference to a convincing debate, full of facts and logic, and one that is full of nothing but insults and fallacies. As...

    Obviously the degree of assault would determine the punishment, if any. But the same is true for physical harm. If we're walking down the hall and I bump into you, that is physical contact which...

    I would have to ask, what is a "person"? What makes us people and elevates us higher then animals? Most say that it is our ability to reason, have complex thoughts and our general brain development...

    Yes, and with a plethora of other roles that add depth to the game.

    I saw that there were some done a few years ago, but it looks like none have happened since.

    Hello, does anyone here enjoy the mafia games? Not the facebook one, but the logic and deception one.
  7. Re: Zoosexuality/Beasility what do you think about it?

    That would be hard to show, without any studies. I imagine that it most likely just gives them "bad habits" if they ever go to a new owner.

    However, with dogs and cats at least, most have the...

    Re: Is God real?

    That would be an appeal to authority. Just because they said it, doesn't make it true. Especially with no scientific backing.




    Sure it does, it improves creatures based on their...

    You can have a private event on public land.

    Poll: Re: How Do You Identify Yourself?

    I suppose it depends on who I'm talking to. To people online, I identify by my philosophy and how I think. To people that I met with friends, then I guess I go with my job. To people I met with my...
  11. Re: The United States role in effecting the outcome of WW2...

    I would say, for the OP question, yes, the USA's role effected the outcome. However, I do fully believe that the importance of the US role (at least for the European campaign) was not nearly as...

    Re: Is God real?

    There is no way to know (with our current knowledge) if there is a god or if there is not. That is why no one asks "do you know of a god?" they ask "do you believe in a god?" Since they are asking...

    Re: Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior

    But most do, they just expect the best out of THEIR kids. They don't really care about the other kids (after all, those other kids are nothing but competition for jobs down the road). And many are...

    A certain degree is, yes. Emotional harm is still harm, as is psychological harm, financial harm, and physical harm (there may be more, but you should get the idea). If they are going with the...

    Re: Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior

    That is also not true. There are many parents that don't raise their children in that manner in the US. I'd dare say that most don't. But that only a few actually go so far as let their children...

    That's presenting a false black and white. You don't have to go to one extreme or the other, there is a middle ground to find balance in. Of course I'm not advocating letting your child fail in...

    That is a common thing for internet forum and debate sites. They are very often largely male, and largely younger.

    Okay, so to start with CO2.

    The mass of Earth's atmosphere is 5.174*10^18 kg, that means that 5.174*10^12 kg represents 1 ppm of the atmosphere, or 5.174 billion metric tons.
