Ah, excellent! We have really been needing this forum section for quite awhile now - its great to see it has finally been implemented. The purpose of this thread is to do as the title suggests - brainstorm new topics. So far, we have a discussion on life and death (which also imposes on religion, and the existance of a god quite a bit) and a discussion on murder (which also touches suicide). This seems great so far, but I would like to see some debates on the following topics:

Abortion/Stem Cell Research
The War in Iraq
Religion
Man, and his mental origins (discuss stuff like Tabula Rasa)

I'm sure you guys can think of some more examples, and this seems like a nice place to put them. Also, if enough people express interest in one of the other topics, we can start up a nice, active thread on it. So goodluck, and may the discussions begin!

I can already tell you that any abortion thread will boil down to what people consider a living thing or a human.

And another topic like that, and I know this topic will be discussed sooner or later, is homosexuals.

Another topic could be human relations, why people act as they do to each other.

In my past experience abortion is not a particulary good subject to discuss. It seems to draw out alot of peoples raw emotions and it can easily offend people.

How about politics.

These days it seems impossible to not step on somebodies toes when discussing anything "serious."

I think the best thing to do is just post with good intent, and if the subject matter makes you angry, then to refrain from replying on that subject.

lol, I sound like my mom, If you can't say something nice...

I am so lame.

Yeah, keeping a discussion on a civil tone will not only lead to more actual discussion, it is conducive to more intellectual debates/discussions.

I cant seem to much of a debate coming from that. Earthquake = death = bad = :'(
If anything it would lead onto a debate about politics.

Global Warming . If it doesnt majorly effect us, it will our children

Since its been put like that, why not. Seing as there are few female members on this forum it would be nice to hear the male side of it, as its a very unheard opinion.

There's a secret to keeping something civil. It's called respecting difference of opinion, not doing the "american (un)settlers thing" and forcing your beliefs on others as the only truth.

Unfortunately though not everyone is like that. Even the most civil of opinions can upset people.

Eh, we did pretty well during the first two discussions. The first one could be considered really offensive to some people (discusses the existance/noexistance of God, etc). If we can tolerate stuff like disagreement to people's core beliefs, I think we can maintain civility on the other threads.
