The voters have decided that tyrannyvigilant is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.
Also about critical thinking+68By giving us the tool to deny Him (critical thinking) and neglecting to give us the key to accept Him (strong evidence), God forces us to rely on faith rather than the natural tendencies He gave us. Why make salvation more difficult for your creation, amirite?
Also by tyrannyvigilant-9It's more important to the general populace to have knowledge of sports, pop-culture ad nauseum than science, philosophy and politics – Amirite?
Also by tyrannyvigilant+18Forget legalizing gay marriage – get the damn government out of our lives so it has no influence over who we can marry is more like it. The fact that we even have to debate who can marry who is despicable and speaks volumes to how much control the government already wields over us. Amirite?
Also about skill and opportunities+338A black student with a GPA of 3.5 from a family of 5 that makes 35,000 a year shouldn't have more scholarship opportunities than a white student with a GPA of 3.5 from a family of 5 that makes 35,000 a year in the same city applying to the same college. Opportunities should be based off skill and disadvantage only, not race. Affirmative action only reinforces the idea that minorities are less capable, and it is an insult, amirite?
Also about current and opinions+22We formulate our opinions of the world based mostly on news that has been selected, edited, and presented by an intermediary. For instance, how many of you participated in the "Arab Spring"? These intermediaries - news corporations mostly - have their own agendas, and painting an accurate, even-handed picture of an event might not be part of it. Therefore, if you truly want to be informed about current events, you need to get your information of at least two (often opposing) sources, amirite?
Also about Philosophy+53Holes get bigger the more you take away from them, amirite?
Also about thinking and perspectives-2Truth is like a diamond under our feet hidden somewhere in the dirt, thinking is like digging tunnels trying to discover that diamond. When we collaborate perspectives, it's like combining our digging power. The more perspectives you've considered, the closer you probably are to the truth, amirite?
Also about thinking, losing, and opinions-16Since so many people on this site adhere to the "numbers don't matter" way of thinking when losing a debate or argument, and my opinions or comments seem to be in the minority category, logically then, my opinions and views should be considered right every time someone disagrees. Amirite? More
Also about correct and opinions+17It's infuriating when you see someone pass along a false piece of information they randomly found on the Internet 5 minutes ago, and when you correct them by giving arguments and facts they act as if you're a brainwashed plebeian who "can't understand people's controversial opinions". Facts are facts, amirite?
