The Top Ten

The answer to religion is easy: believe whatever the hell you want to as long as your not killing people as a result. It is that easy, yet society seems to be filled with so much idiots that we are stuck on it still. We should be devoting our time to I don't know. Maybe ending poverty, or pollution of the earth, or racism, or maybe even women's rights. Any one of these things are being ignored by this growing population of idiots stuck on something that a kindergartener could figure out. As a result the human race is starting to take a turn for the worst. Atheists don't blame religion, blame the argument on religion.
According to a survey disbelievers know more about religion than the rest. Religion is a lifestyle. So don't argue about it. Do what you think is right. It will be your religion
It is very true that no religion will win, but in a way religion need to be around in order for people to feel as if they have something to live for or towards to, but then again relgion makes so many wars because many people do not know how to respect other beliefs due to their mentality that everyone should be just like them or think just like they do, so that's my persional view on religion
Music is a perfectly reasonable thing to argue over, but religion, you just don't argue over, because you just believe in something or someone, and you let that guide you in life, but you don't go around shoving it down peoples throats, bullying them, killing them, or protesting AGAINST human rights in the name of religion, and you DEFINITELY DON'T start wars over it. And that's religion 101.

2Taste in Music
This one idiot always makes fun of peoples music but he needs to get a life


There is this dumbass who just doesn't realise different people have different tastes. His favorite person is justin bieber (gay) and he's talking about others's tastes
Everyone has a different taste in music so everyone will think differently. Then if you meet someone who doesn't have the same music preference as you, it'll start up the conversation on which music is better. WHO CARES? Music is music.
No matter what you say here, people are going to disagree. that's why it's called an opinion not a fact.

3Human Skin Color
More racist in the unted states than the rest of the world combined.
"the USA is the most racist country"

Ever thought of because we have the most races? There's all different kinds of races so don't expect there to be little racism.

India has mostly Indian people

China mostly has Chinese people

Mexico mostly has Mexican people

United States has a mix of all
Tsk tak tsk racism... Probably one of the most pointless things on earth. Who cares if someone is white or Latin or African American? They're just people.

4Mac vs. PC
Macs blow. PC can provide so much more specs and processing power for about half of the cost of an Apple product. The only thing that makes Mac computers successful is the user interface designed for technologically challenged people and the stlye logo
I own a PC and an Iphone, I guess that pretty much solves that. I would like to point out that nobody should ever fully support one or the other. There are benefits to both, and one has to realize that both companies have performed incredible contributions to technology. Once you realize that, the validity of this argument is lost.
Mac's are much more user friendly, PC's can do a lot more, but you have to either be a computer genius, or do A LOT of research! Macs also, if you do a little research, can open a window that runs on Windows, and they can do all sorts of other cool things that don't involve coding.

Hey I love my teams just as much as the next guy but I'm not going to shun someone for rooting for another team.


Sports should not exist in society anyway. All it is is watching people kick a ball into a net or hitting it with a long stick! People simply waste their time and their lives, basing their lives on the outcome of a game! Yeah, I know exercise is important, but it's useless to watch people doing it. What are "sports professionals" professionals at, anyway?! Kicking a ball! They get paid bigbucks for one of the most talentless things anyone can do! It's pointless watching people do this and pointless arguing about whether the talentless Man you can kick a ball into a net more times than the equally talentless Man City!
Some kids in my class act like sports are life or death but it is really just a fun game
I think sports shouldn't matter as much as they matter today. Like you shouldn't be crying or getting angry over LeBron or however you spell his name for moving to another team. He is just a person that happens to be very good at basketball. Calm down.

6Xbox 360 or PS3
Obviously they are at each others backs, well most of the time. They do sponsor the same games but others different, such as Lbp or other games. It's such a pointless thing to argue about because they are both awesome devices.
I think PS3 is better than Xbox 360 because of the different games on each system. I personally like hash and slash games more than first person shooter, more of those games are on the PS3. My opinion please don't hate.
Why... Just... Why my Xbox isn't working now... My brother broke it... I'm sad...
Play Station is the greatest system to be mad, Xbox anit got a damn thing on play station beside halo

7Pepsi vs Coca-Cola
They're both good and taste the same to me :/
Pepsi Tastes more watery and more sugary, but their both cola, so I buy whichever one is on sale :P
Pepsi's better than coca-cola because there is more caffeine in it

8What Clothes You Wear
I often argue with my Mum about this- I want to wear new clothes around the house (otherwise, what's the point in getting new clothes? And she argues back :(
Who cares If you wear what you wear that's just plain stupid!
Who cares about clothing? I can choose what I want to wear. To me, the days of the week are like the colors of a rainbow. ROYGBIV are seven colors of the rainbow & there's seven days of the week. Here's something to explain it.
Sunday-I wear red.
Monday-I wear orange.
Tuesday-I wear yellow.
Wednesday-I wear green.
Thursday-I wear blue.
Friday-I wear indigo.
Saturday-I wear violet.
If that's what I'll wear every week, then I'll wear it. Who cares about clothing? Why do women like to buy clothes a lot?

9Same-sex marriage
I don't understand people sometimes. Have your opinions on certain matters, but keep them to yourself. These people aren't you, so why get mad? And just because someone has the freedom of speech, doesn't mean they have to use it. I'd just like people to stop getting upset over other people's lives that have nothing to do with them.
I don't think you've read the Bible before
Romans Romans 1:27 says it's wrong end of story.
And the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

10Best Movies
Some people get angry if you disagree with them about how good a movie is. For example, a lot of people that are fans of James Cameron's 'Titanic, ' get very defensive if you tell them that it is not the greatest ever!
Everyone has a different opinion, I know I do. If you want to argue about this it is fine with me. I warn you absolutely pointless, please don't waste your time. PLEASE
This is a crazy thing to argue about, but I have to say that I have never watched nor will I ever watch Harry Potter because of all of the magic and sorcery... That is just my opinion though

15Paper or Plastic
The are both bad to use

16Planets of Solar System
Pluto is the best because its small and cute


17One Direction or Justin Bieber
Both are bad influences because two members (Zayn Malik & Louis Tomlinson) of One Direction were caught smoking weed. Justin Beiber has done a handful of things that grants him a bad reputation. Being a One Direction fan myself I obviously choose them because 1) they do many charities nobody knows about 2) they are humble, they don't show off they're money 3) they're all around nice guys that love singing & 4) many of you have not bothered to see they're movie because they're a "gay boy band" but they're movie says a lot about them and they just want to live their lives to the fullest. Justin Beiber is also nice but he has too much of an ego for me to like.
None they both suck

18Democrat vs Republican

19Cartoons vs Anime
This has completely gotten way out of hand on Top Tens Lists even I got caught up in this whole mess.


Both are good in their own right but some people take this argument way too far.


Anime is the best obviously

20Best Sports
Do shut up, these people! You're plainly unbearable!


21Kisses or Smooches?

22Burger Restaurants vs Pizza Restaurants

23Best Video Games

24New or Thrifted

25Men vs Woman

26Momma's Boy vs. Daddy's Girl

27Life or Death

28Toilets or Sinks
WHAT! I never heard of this one! But is sounds very pointless! Toilet of sink? Hm. Let me think this one over for a couple of days... WELL duh! You need both!


29Harry Potter or Twilight
Harry Potter! Emma Watson is more beautiful than Kristin Stewart.
Only stupid teenage girls thing Twilight is the best, Harry Potter defined a generation. If anyone thinks Twilight is the best they need to look at the writing style, even the star of the movies hates it!
Harry Potter in a heartbeat. At least it has an organized easy to follow story line.

30Is Pot a Drug

31Soccer vs. Football
Soccer is the actual football but American football should have been called American handball. Laugh out loud.


Haha Soccer all the way!
What is this "soccer" you speak of?


32England vs America
Didn't America come from England, and by saying that America sucks your pretty much saying England sucks.


There is no argument - ENGLAND is better!
England! America sucks dicks!

33Who is the Greatest Guitarist
Frank iero hell yeah oh and peter marchant

34Girls or Boys

35Right or Left Handed
I don't understand this one.

36Older or Younger

You would be surprised how pointless, and popular this argument is. Forty years from now this will be forgotten, but the kids talking about it today just freak me out. Entire songs are devoted to swag, which are just as stupid as the pop songs about money drugs, and sex. How I miss the days when music used to be about more relevant things.

38Cats vs. Dogs

39Bigfoot: Real or Fake

40Son Goku vs. Superman
Goku of course, superman is an unrealistic character with unlimited abilities over time..
As proven by a death battle, Superman is stronger than Goku. Still not convinced? Watch the death battle yourself.


41Best Anime
Bleach, one piece and daily lives of highschool boys are the best


Higurashi and umineko are the best anime so now stop fighting

42Penis or Vagina
This one is plain SICK
WHAT THE HELL? Why and how in the world would people argue bout this? First of all, it makes no sense. Second of all, that's disgusting. Third of all it doesn't matter because both are bad. You can get easily hurt with a penis and girls have to deal with periods with the vagina. End of story.
Stick it in there

43Death Penalty

44Real Guitar or Guitar Hero

45Most Powerful Countries
I always hear people saying that Britain is the most powerful that its a superpower it can nuke China and Russia even though USA and Russia are the powers of the World (and China sometimes).

46Hot Dogs or Hamburgers

47Which Country Is Best
My country is the best.. True all around the globe

I was in a vary heated argument about the eggs or chickens I want to have a baby with the chicken and make an egg

53Floor or Online Shopping

54Head or Tails
Lets flip on it...

55HD or Regular View
HD is much brighter and better quality, so I prefer HD over the regular view, because I bet that when things used to be shown in black and white, and colored television was coming out, the same problem between the two was similar, but eventually we would get into the habit of liking new advanced things and appreciating them, so if someone doesn't like something though don't get mad at them because it takes time for people to get use to certain things

56Tiny or Super Tiny

5789 or 93 Premium

58Ford or Chevy

59Lefties vs. Righties vs. Ambidextrous People
Again, we have a clear winner. Ambidextrous people all the way!

They're both tasty but which one is better?


62Apples vs. Oranges
Too juicy to decide!

63Gloves or Mittens

64Cars or Motorcycles

65Straws or mouth slurping

66Coats or Jackets

67Glasses or Contacts
Well... Contacts feel better. And allow for periphial vision.

68Airplane or Helicopter

69Car or Truck / Bus

70Cursive or Typing

71Doors or Sliders

72Pools or Lakes

73Chairs or Booths

74Coffee or Cappuccino

75Fast Food or Dine-in

76Snow or Rain

77Stairs or Elevators
I'm pretty sure people will say the same thing... elevators!


78% of the people fall down stairs
43% of the people die in elevators due to axe murderers, ghosts, ghouls and perverts
So I'm going with elevater because I have a gun and I'm an excorcist
