Every argument gets a chance to be on top!
The Public Waterfall shows you all arguments, looking across every debate.

Absolutely ridiculous. I am against too much being spent on space exploration but the idea of spending more on the reverence of an imaginary friend (God) is just a joke.

All of your arguments look quite skeptical;It's true that unless you are yourself a tourist you can't give a proper reasoning but on a whole when I've asked some tourists,their answers have been quite the same 'America provides an ideal place for tourists to reside and the people are friendly and very much helpful;Theirs no doubt America's tourist facilities are indeed exceptional but as you are saying tourist scams,you have to be careful about it.

Its quite boring in Qoura to be honest,all you have to do set up an account and fill half the page with your arguments and then can you expect to get up-voted;I have an account there but unlike create debate I've not been able to open my points account there;It's a whore which only the bull-headed IIM,NASA guys do.Besides our twitter handle has more followers than theirs.

800,000 year ice core (more than 1 for every 2 days since the supposed flood)

Anyone in the "YES" column if you have not already done so, I recommend you read Erich von Daniken's book Chariots of the gods, published back in 1968.

This was a regular topic for debate way back then and I guess it still is.

Personally I think gods or aliens are an excellent example of the creativity, fertility, and capacity of our amazing imaginations to create structures built solely upon faith that have to this day maintained such devotion.

He cleverly became close to Lenin and cleverly manipulated others so that in the view of the public he was meant to be the successor. He also manipulated the funeral by telling Trosky the wrong date so he did not come thus angering the public and according to the public Trosky had no respect for Lenin and on the other hand thought Stalin was meant to be the next successor. He also manipulated others to make sure he had what he needed. Furthermore, he also had the authority to fire his potential successors. He made the public believe and manipulated his way.

Furthermore, Trotsky was recovering on his sickness, thus he wasn't seen as loyal because he did not came to Lenin's funeral. This made it seem like he was not loyal to Lenin.

Stalin was most certainly a cunning manipulator. He formed alliances with his rivals, and turned them against one another. After both parties were worn out, he would trample on them and rise above them. He invoked the people's hate towards Trotsky by telling him the wrong date for Lenin's funeral, thus reducing the support that the people formerly gave Trotsky.

Although many felt Stalin was dangerous and should be dismissed, Trotsky, his other rival, was not that popular either. Many felt he was ambitious as he wanted to start a world revolution. Some also felt that he was big headed and not suited for the position of Lenin.

Yes, I agree with Aliff Qayyum as when his followers have optimal positions, Stalin has more power.

Joseph Stalin became Dictator of the USSR due to his cunning manipulations in forming alliances to protect him. This is shown in him surviving Trotsky's Testament, which demanded he was removed from his position as General-Secretary, by his allies supporting him and convincing the others in the party that he should not be stripped of his position. This shows that Stalin was wise in his choice of forming allies which could support him, knowing well that his position was threatened and taking action to prevent it from happening.

I feel that Lenin was a cunning manipulator as he pretended to be close to Lenin. His opportunity rised when Lenin died.He was then the chief mourner and made people think that he was the rightful successor. He also gave trotsky the wrong date of the funeral to make it as if Stalin was the only one that cared for Lenin, therefore gaining the trust of the public

He was lucky to be able to be present at Lenin's funeral and could act as a loyal follower and thus gained a lot of respect due to the power of Lenin.

Stalin was a cunning manipulator as he pretended to be close to Lenin by frequently visiting him. When Lenin died, Stalin organized his funeral and made a grand affair. He also gave a funeral speech and established himself as a chief mourner. The general public and party members thought that he was the natural successor of Lenin. Stalin told Totsky the wrong date to the funeral and Trotsky did not come to the funeral. The public was angered as Trotsky did not attend the funeral. Hence, due to Stalins manipulation he was able to rise.

Compared to other candidates, Stalin was unpopular. To get rid of his greatest rival, Trotsky, he told him the wrong date of Lenin's funeral, making him an unpopular choice for the people.

When Stalin was made Secretary-General of the Communist party in 1922, he was given the power to appoint and reassign party members. He, being a cunning manipulator, was able to replace all of his opponents' allies with his own allies. This gave Stalin a huge advantage.

Trotsky wanted to engage in world communism revolution however, Stalin wanted to improve internally first. The members felt that Trotsky was too big headed and ambitious. Thus they did not like him and gave Stalin an advantage

I feel that Stalin's cunning manipulation allowed him to rise to power. He used his positions as General Secretary of the Communist Party to give his followers high positions.

From the start he had already tried to turn any favour away from his rival, Trotsky by purposefully making him miss Lenin's funeral making people despise him. He then continued to eliminate anyone who posed a threat to him and made it seem like he too was a victim and thus a less likely suspect.

I believe Stalin is a cunning manipulator. Though he was the secretary-general and many people considered it to be a very small role, he made full use of his power to eliminate his opponents.One such example would be defaming Trotsky. Stalin put on a fa├žade of close friendship with Lenin, making it seem to the public that Lenin trusted Stalin. When Lenin died, Stalin established himself as the chief mourner and made arrangements for his body to be embalmed. Furthermore, he ordered Petrograd to be renamed into Leningrad. He even gave Trotsky the wrong date of Lenin's funeral so that he would be absent on that day. His absence gave the Russian public an impression that Trotsky did not really care about Lenin and it was in fact Stalin who was the closest friend of Lenin and viewed him as his natural successor.
