    Politics What happens when we die?

    Obviously no one can say for certain what happens when our bodies die but an email I received this morning got me thinking that it could be an interesting topic to discuss. What are you beliefs? Do our bodies just die, rot and everything we've spent our lives stressing about just end or is...

    Politics Germans no longer have to classify their kids as male or female

    Germany has become the first European country to allow parents of babies born with no clearly-defined gender characteristics to leave the ‘male/female’ field on birth certificates blank, creating a ‘third sex’ category in the public register. The law, passed in August, comes into force on...

    Politics The "giraffe" riddle

    I'm putting this Great Debates because it seems to be causing a war on the internet over what the answer is :D Firstly, the riddle:- "It’s 3 a.m., the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors! It’s your parents and they are here for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine...

    Politics Islamic Influence?

    The following is adapted from a book by Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat, published in 2008:- Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military...

    Politics Where do you stand, politically?

    A bit of a touchy subject for many but I've always enjoyed a good debate around the subject. Although I've only just (two years ago) reached the voting age, and have yet to vote yet (damn these elections only running every four years...), I've always loved to debate around the subject. -- My...

    Politics Wesboro Baptist Church

    These people amaze me. Watching their protests is like watching a train wreck - you just have to stop and stare. This week they're targetting Blake Shelton (yeah, I had to google to find out who he is!) who really couldn't care less - and why? Because he got divorced and remarried, of all...

    Politics Skirts are a leading cause of rape. Because men have eyes. . .

    The Indian comedy group All India Backods, featuring #Bollywood actor Kalki Koechlin, has released a video attacking the most common beliefs about why women are to blame for #rape. Take a few minutes to watch the video. I think it's been very cleverly done and I'd like to think that...

    Politics Should a rapist have access to a child born from the rape?

    A news article I read today:- Woman Sues Over Forced Relationship With Rapist I dunno, maybe it's just me but this guy shouldn't have any rights whatsoever. (He should also have been castrated without anesthetic and left to rot, but that's another story entirely).

    Politics Piracy

    This is an interesting topic in my opinion. Personally I don't see all piracy as a bad thing. That's not what I wanted to discuss however. What I really wanted to talk about was whether or not you believe that piracy could be dying with more and more services such as Spotify and Netflix on the...

    I didn't really know if I should put this thread here or in the "The Great Debates" section but I figured this would be better. Please feel free to move if you feel it belongs in the other section. ------------------------ Background The Holocaust. I doubt there's anyone that don't know what...

    Politics JFK Second Shooter? New Documentary Makes Radical Claim

    Seventy-five percent of the American people still refuse to believe the official story of President John F. Kennedy's death. They do not think he was killed by a lone gunman but by a mysterious cabal that somehow conspired to have him killed. How can this be? How can a crime this famous...

    Politics Is Porn Dangerous?

    David Cameron has announced plans to crack down on online pornography by changing the way it is accessed. Under his plans, every internet user will be forced to opt in if they want to access sexually graphic content, and possessing violent pornography will be be made a crime. But what threat...

    North Korea has been doing a lot of saber rattling lately with threads of war against the US. In recent weeks they've cut off the 'emergency' phone line to South Korea, have said that they no longer recognize the peace agreement with South Korea and consider themselves to be in a state of...
