    Is Christianity sexist?

    I created a thread on another forum. One member brought up a good point that most scholars don't believe that Paul wrote 1 Timothy. I looked it up in my own sources and found that to be the case, as well. Finding a 1st century copy of 1 Timothy would help the case that Paul was the author...

    Germany imposes nationwide lockdowns for the unvaccinated

    I have not been a fan of pandemic lockdowns because it would obviously harm the economy and it unnecessarily prohibits everyone. Even during the first ever covid-19 wave, I always thought that those who are young and/or those without chronic disease should've not been locked down since that...

    Very good debate on currency, value, and gold

    I posted a debate in another thread that was on digital currency and gold. Well I believe I've found an even better debate on that same topic. I felt the person arguing for cryptocurrency in the debate below did a much better job in defending his position. Here goes:

    slow erosion of middle-income jobs, Andy Yang, minimum income of $1,000 a month — and time banking.

    Unless someone is living in affordable housing, then I don't know how single head of household person can get by on less than $1,000/month. I'm with Andrew Yang in proposing a minimum income, but I believe that should go along side with jobs, perhaps by increasing the minimum wage or a work...

    Anyone into Cryptocurrencies?

    Here is a very good debate on Cryptocurrencies (digital currencies) vs. Gold (basically boiled down to if cryptocurrency is a legitimate currency - does it have intrinsic value, etc.): Anthony Scaramucci (in favor of cryptocurrency) vs Peter Schiff

    11/26/2021 Forum update: Consolidating forum sections

    Several new members have joined posting to the wrong areas. This may be because I have too many forum sections with overlapping topics. Even if they did so for other reasons, I still figured it would be good to cut down on the amount of forum sections I have. Ideally, I want the main focus of...

    Should we meet in the Metaverse?

    Land being sold in the metaverse: "Interest in the metaverse has skyrocketed since Facebook changed its corporate name to Meta. Enthusiasts buy land in the metaverse as a speculative investment, and other digital properties have sold for hefty price tags, too. A plot of digital land in...

    Did Paul have a lady friend? 1st Corinthians, ch 9

    Welcome to the forum, Multicolored Lemur!👋 The topic asks about Paul's lady friend so I'll give my view on that first. It is a very interesting question. A lot of people also want to know if Jesus was married or if he had a lady "friend" at the least (Mary Magdalene?)🤔 Back to Paul... For...

    Will Donald Trump run for president in 2024?

    I believe Trump will run for president again for two reasons: 1. He is still holding campaign rallies which shows that he still wants power and influence. 2. His party is putting voting rules in place that they say would make it harder to cheat. And of course we know that Donald Trump thinks...

    Will Donald Trump run for president in 2024?

    For debate: 1. Do you think Donald Trump will run for president again? 2. Would he be a good president the second time around?

    How do atheists and agnostics handle claims?

    My views here do not apply to every single agnostic and atheist, but rather it applies to each group, on average. When it comes to mundane or ordinary claims, both atheists and agnostics tend to deal with them reasonably. But as we move towards the more controversial or extraordinary claims...

    Kyle Rittenhouse shoots BLM protestors and found not guilty? Is this right?

    In my view, Kyle Rittenhouse is not guilty of murder. I say this accepting that he is likely a White supremacist since photos have surfaced showing him hanging out with members of the Proud Boys and flashing a White power hand sign (source: Washington Post). Being a White supremacist with an...

    Alright. I'll post a good debate on the topic. The best I've heard so far between Alex Tsakiris (podcaster) vs. Dr. Steven Novella (neurologist):

    Should we meet in the Metaverse?

    That would be a good idea. I think it would be a plus for those that are visual learners. Worked has definitely picked up. A lot of procedures were on hold during the worse of the covid. Now we're playing catch up along with new appointments. Hopefully the holidsay season won't cause...

    Should we meet in the Metaverse?

    Some of the same social pressures that we experience in the real world can get carried over into the Metaverse. For instance, some might begin to see their avatar as a real reflection of themselves. The same thing you worry about in the real world, like looks, clothing style, hair style, you...

    Should we meet in the Metaverse?

    It seems that Facebook has changed its name to Meta. It is rebranding itself as a company where people can interact in Metaverse. Interestingly, I started fooling around with a virtual reality platform called Decentraland. You can buy and sell land and explore them while meeting up with...
