Speak out if you think you’re right

I love to debate. Talking about controversial topics is the high-light of my life, but there is a reason for it. If it’s controversial it’s important, and if it’s important it’s important to talk about it. I don’t like when people say, “I don’t get into that.” Why not? When people are arguing over what’s right or wrong why not get into it?

We shouldn’t fear change, it’s the only constant. Aversion to controversial topics does no favors for a world desperately in need of solutions. When you say, “Keep your opinions to yourself” you are saying, “Don’t analyze the experience you are having now and share your insights with me.”

Debate away! I have no problem with people who have different opinions than me. This blog is constantly on the subject of atheism—a highly controversial topic—but I do not want its content to be only read by atheists. I would love other readers to read comment and point out mistakes I made in an argument. That way I can stop using refutable arguments! You have to convince me, but I am willing to listen.

Though it must be mentioned that we should remember some basic manners. I debate to grow, not to shame my fellow human beings. Is foul language and name calling ever helpful in a serious discussion? It is not. Patience and reason are both essential to productive discourse.

It is time to drop the curtain and reveal all the thoughts in the world. It is time to share those thoughts and talk about them. We are civilized beings. We are grown-ups. We can argue without name calling or killing each other. Speak out, because what’s more important than what you care about the most?

    I propose a debate to you two brilliant minds of atheism.

    I may be highly wrong in my thoughts and opinions of this religious thinking, but I hold the belief that, somewhere along the long line of history, science, and the experiments of the human way of life in regards to supreme powers, the supreme energy of life – whatever it may be (the Sun of this particular universe) – was divided up and translated within the realms of regions for use and implementation of how to govern a specific regional body (the masses).

    Throughout various years of evolution, scientific advancements, and philosophical debate, some ideas were lifted and changed, others (obviously) were left for today’s understanding and rule to maintain order, reign, and vision of how to see and understand our way of life. In short, a prime, significant energy exists, we have either lost this Deistical identity’s raw form, or it has not been FULLY defined for understanding within our common societal reality.

    Thank you for your time.

      What is this power you are speaking of? Did it create the universe?

      Thank you for reading!

    “What is this power you are speaking of?”

    [the supreme energy of life – whatever it may be (the Sun of this particular universe)
    This energy – whether the magical WiFi powers of the mighty sunlight, working with the realm here on Earth, I do not know what you would call this. But, I am deeply embedded in the fact that whatever this “power” is, every single human being is a part of it – No matter the religious stamp of approval.]

    “Did it create the Universe?”

    [Well, what do you consider, “THE UNIVERSE?” Simply the universe that is within your current setting? – bedroom*? library*? Science lecture hall*? Our planet Earth*? Or, the HUGE, vast black area that we call “space”*?

    To me, the universe is the realm that is being describe for a particular “system” (examples above*). i am not sure what started our ENTIRE black area that we call “space”, but, whatever it was, it made other systems like ours as well.

    Did the Sunlight shining millions of miles away create the Universe “Earth”? – I think it had a large investment into this enterprise.]
