Controversial Project Topic?

Post by GRAWRG. » Mon Oct 24, 2011 12:10 am

Just look through our Religious debate threads :D

Lots of good stuff around these forums, we got Capitalism vs communism, One world government, and Religion vs athiesm.

I know an awesome one. Easily as controversial as you can get without defending pedophilia.
Talk about the downsides of democracy (including republics, of course).

Oh and r/atheism is one of the sickest, most depressing and horrifyingly stupid places on the internet. If there's one thing that manages to make me fear for the guture of the species, it's r/atheism.

what i envisioned was an egotistical chimp drinking tea with a fly buzzing around it's head. but oddly enough i couldn't find a pic of an egotistical chimp drinking tea. so this is what i ended up with.

wasnt an insult. at least, i dont think you would consider it an insult.

and i wouldn't be passionate enough about the democracy topic. im passionate about the pledge in schools because i really dont like being forced to stand in the morning. or at all really.

I'm dead tired first and second periods (homeroom is between then), and I'd rather just sit and sleep through it too. Meh, I just don't think its worth the trouble it may cause. Plus, I know enough in physics to sleep through the second lab period when we go over stuff anyway 8)

i didnt know i was allowed to sit. i mean, ive done it before.. but then the teachers always tell you to stand up. and if you dont stand up then, then you can get written up for insubordination. if id have known though, i wouldnt have gotten up. it started as me being lazy... but i really have a problem with being told what to do. wtf kind of BBQ am i if i let myself be forced to stand and say "with liberty and justice for all". if im allowed to burn the flag outside of school, i shouldnt be forced to stand for the pledge. theres just too much hypocrisy related to the pledge in schools.

I don't share your passion for this kind of thing, but hey that's what makes a good project, enjoy playing around with the topic. Best essay I've ever written was on "space ethics". I didn't prepare half a minute with the packet he gave us ahead of time, wrote the thing in 20 minutes. Got a sexy 9 on it (AP test grading scale, dude said he'd never given out a 9 in his whole teaching career). Writing it was like that first drink of water as you wake up with a sore throat and a dry mouth, half sweaty and half cold in a cacoon of blankets.

Lmfao you fuckwit I'm not in the picture. They are both Icarus, if you had any knowledge of the classics you'd realize that, and what the allusion implied.

Lmfao you still don't understand the myth. You reference it but genuinely don't get it, or are chosing to ignore what it is about. Who the hug tries to fly to the sun? He flew too high and mighty and offended the gods on high, hence his death via melty wings. My wrathful tentacle-y god you're stupid.

I am a servant of the Lord. I will preach what is right and just and I will defend the faith from slander of heathens like you. We know you desire eternal punishment, I dont care where you go but I won't follow you there. I dont closely study stories of idols, so of course I didn't get it.

All i heard in that was; "I'm willfully ignorant because a really old book tells me to be, to ignore reason and critical thinking and observation, and a crowd of circle jerking nutjobs believes in it too." In any other context that would be a cause for shame, but because you can hide behind some undeserved veneer of respect and self righteousness, it doesn't appear as such to most people. But not to me or anyone else here mate, and the crowd of those unaffected by that can only grow. I suggest you pull your head out of your donkey before reality does it for you.

You should write about the justification of abortion. That has plenty of arguments for and against it. Perhaps you can ask MadAce about it and copy/paste his post. :P

JC, the community of evil has always been larger than that of Good, as it is in Hell - with many more people than there are in Heaven. "The path to hell is wide and popular, while the path to heaven narrow and steep." I will always follow the narrow path and I will go to heaven, I will feel bad for you as you realize you were wrong.

So continue to hate me, what do I care? Every athiest here hates me and in return I pray for them. Hopefully you wont go to hell as you are leaning towards.
