Smacking is necessary, if a child runs into the street, you would not wait for them to be ran over by a truck and say "you deserved it" to their lifeless body. You would intervene and discipline them in a tangible way. In essence, you give the child a little bit of physical or emotional pain now to avoid a lot of pain later. amirite?
The idea of audio/voice posts doesn't really suit this site, due to varying volume, sound quality and the possibility of people "trolling" with loud noises, amirite?
The purpose of a debate is to arrive at the correct answer, not to prove that you're right. Otherwise, there is no compromise and it becomes a stubborn game of status in which nobody truly wins, Amirite?

No, the point of a debate is to prove you're right, not to compromise and arrive at the correct answer

Living without religion can really improve your quality of life, amirite?

Yeah, but so can life with religion. It depends on the person, I guess

When thinking about it, you have zero idea whether you dream in first or third person. Amirite?

Mine is always first. I guess it's different between people

It's annoying how everyone is putting Amanda Todd on such a high pedestal and treating her like some kind of hero. It seems like people don't understand that she is the one that started all of this and could have dealt with it better than the way she did, amirite?

I don't think she's a hero. She made some mistakes, which she DEFINITELY didn't deserve to die for, and then she killed herself. I feel bad for her, and I think it's awful how that happened and how she was bullied, but she isn't really a hero. If she hadn't killed herself then yes, I think she would be more inspirational for bullied kids and then she probably would be.

I'm not saying that people shouldn't feel sympathy for her, but calling her a hero is a little extreme.

A person should not be ridiculed based on their weight if they are making a legitimate effort to lose some, amirite?
@gene I agree. Especially when people make fun of fat people at the gym. It's like REALLY?

I don't understand why people do that. I think "good for them" when I see fat people at the gym

You would date someone in a wheelchair, amirite?

If I liked them and was attracted to them then yeah, but not just because they were in a wheelchair

This guy I sit by in in one of my classes will always hand me a paper, and then reach over me to hand the stack to the next person

The only requirement to be a guy is to have a penis, and the only requirement to be a girl is to have a vagina. All other traits and characteristics we attribute to each gender are unnecessary and just establish gender roles. For example, guys shouldn't have to feel pressured to be athletic, tough, logical and the breadwinner of the family. Girls shouldn't have to feel pressured to be "feminine" all the time. There's too much social pressure to conform to the 'identifying traits' of each gender, amirite?
Pregnant women should not abort the child they don't want if the father still wants to keep it and be its guardian, because it is his child, too, and he has just as much right to it as the mother, amirite?

Yes, unless she has a legitimate reason not to, like health problems.

It wouldn't be that surprising if aliens accused the Korean language of plagiarising their crop circles, amirite?
@I know the op probably didn't mean it that way, but as a Korean I'm a little insulted. The history of the Korean...

Why's everyone getting so mad at him for saying that? He just said that he gets that it's a joke, it just isn't funny to him and he's a LITTLE insulted. Not a lot, a little. If he had gotten really angry then that would make sense, but all he's doing is calmly sharing his opinion on the potd

If there was no religion, there would still be "religious" arguments and wars. They would just be about different things, like philosophies and cultures. Instead of identifying as different religions, people would identify as their philosophy, or something similar. The only difference would be that God wouldn't be in there. Amirite?
@1840949

That's a good point. What I was trying to say was that if religion didn't exist, then people would find something else to identify as and argue about. Getting rid of religion wouldn't stop all those things from happening, because people would just find something else to argue about. I didn't even think about heaven, and promises of an afterlife.

This was just something I thought of, and I was wondering what people would say.

You know more about World War II than World War I, amirite?

I would say I know about the same about them

I hope this gets homepaged. I want to see all the comments
