Slashinators use completely hyperbolic language, and express lazy blanket statements in political debates.

I would also say that the Senate is currently unfairly biased toward rural America, as less populace = greater direct representation.

The Senate was intended to be structurally biased towards minorities (rural pops), whereas the House was conversely created to be the voice of the majority and urban populations.

It's been done to people like the Black Panther's leader.

Which leader are you referring to, and why is it legitimate to cut him off? I'm guessing you mean the New BPP, not the BPP.

I know age requirements aren't unanimously supported, but can't we at least keep the 6-year olds off CD?

Buddhism isn't a religion, it's a philosophy.

Maybe some, or most of it. But Lamic Buddhism (that which follows the Dalai Lama) is most definitely a religion. Look up its similarities to the Catholic church.

They believe in Karma and Darma, though, which I don't believe in (since it insights that we're being watched or something).

I think they look at Dharma more as a natural force than an entity.

most people who are very religious (that i meet at least) are very happy...

I'm just nitpicking, but how do you know? I live in San Antonio, so nearly everyone's Catholic. The highly religious ones here give off very happy vibes, but knowing some of them shows that they're generally the exact opposite. I think the rules of religion are inherently suppressive of human nature, so the ones who are truly happy might be the aberrant ones.

This is an agnostic speaking out his ass, mind you. But does your experience match mine?

The best thing about the Truths and Path is that you don't need to be a Buddhist to believe in them. They are generally good rules for living, without overstepping the boundaries of what a religion should do. Also, Buddhism is one of the only religions whose policy is to defer to science in event of conflict. That's badass :]

EDIT: Also like the Samsaric realms. Very elucidating to contemplate which realm you might be in.

I'm inclined to fall on this side:

We have found a gay gene. Call it a defect if you want, but in an overpopulated world it is an altruistic adaptation.

We have not found a gay environmental factor. It shows up in every single population, and in animals.

It's funny, this argument has +2 votes, but your argument on the other side,

Here's the problem with environmental factors:

1. Homosexuality is a chosen life style, a perversion that must be countered.

Has -2 votes.

CreateDebate advocates the Final Solution :P

I wish I could tell a black guy they shouldn't be allowed to vote. Then when he gets mad at me, I tell him to chill out and pull the stick out of his ass. Now I'm cool and smart.
