    debating is pointless. debates always end with some kind of circular logic or paradoxical claim. stuff like:

    nothing is certain - then how can you be certain nothing is certain?

    absolute truth exists - prove it - i don't need to, it is just accepted - no point in debating if one side does not accept absolute truths and the other is basing their argument on them.

    fact cannot exist without a higher power - same as above

    god is all powerful - a contradiction like any anything absolute... can god create something he cannot lift? he must be able to create it if he is all powerful but then he cannot lift it, this is a contradiction.

    or some other philosophical thing. philosophy is masturbating the what ifs. it's lame.

    i dunno jake

    Debate is quite important to the democratic process, debate is a way of changing opinions and opening eyes, debate ain't a bad thing. If this thread were arguing who was tougher, The Rock or Hulk Hogan, then sure it's mental (or not so mental) masturbation. But mideast and western attitudes and behaviour is something that begs for and deserves discussion and debate.

    yes

    I have 1.99 kids, wifey is about to pop number two. We started early, well I did. I was almost 12 when we met, she was my favorite lunch lady at middle school. She swept me off my feet and now I have a loving wife, almost 2 kids, and all the sloppy joes I can eat.

    i'm just talking about the picture now and cow's attittude towards the mid-east
    ok, first of all, i'm not suggesting that americans or anyone else except cow for that matter experience warlike violence. i'm just saying that someone as ignorant and foolish as him should experience it so he knows what the hell he's talking about.

    i agree with you there

    there are no "truths" here, we are just opinionating
    it is the absolute truth that you call yourself jakeman here, am i right? so there's proof of absolute truth.
    who cares if philosophy and debating are like masturbation and are lame, they're fun and a sign of intelligence... plus i'm greek so i know better, hah!
    ^ symbolizes multiply right? (i dunno what they use on comps). so what if x is negative?

    ^ is the symbol for 'raised to the power of'.

    Therefore x^2 means x squared.

    :D

    x^n means "x raised to the power n"

    x*n means "x times n"

    Yes, and what I wrote in plain English is

    "The absolute value of x equals the square root of (x squared)."

    Since we can't write the radical symbol on a keyboard (I think?), I just raised it to the power of one half, which is the same thing.

    |x| = (x^2)^(1/2)
