Who Is Worthy of Receiving a Speech of Tribute?

Question by clerick145: Who is worthy of receiving a speech of tribute?
In my public speaking class, we are giving “speeches of tribute.” It can be a person, place, or group. I’m looking for something different than everybody else talking about someone in their family with drug addiction or other cliche stuff. I want something interesting and appealing to most people. Any ideas?

Answer by Nicholaus
i think it would be interesting to do a speech of tribute to Mao Zedong. he was a terrible dictator of China, however he really changed their culture and instated a lot of ideas that are still there today.

you could also do one to the dorkiest kid in the class, or to you’re teacher just for kicks. that would be good too.

    Speech of tribute…hmmm…well I don’t know exactly what everyone in your class is doing, but here are some ideas

    The Truth group ( the ones on MTV, who are against the tobacco companies). They work REALLY hard and come up with very interesting ideas to get people to be aware of greedy executives and harmful effectives of their products.

    Martin Luther King Jr. Stood up for equal rights and did it non-violently, even when he was attacked violently. Died for his rights to be equal. That deserves tribute right there.

    Jesus…who better to give tribute to, but you probably can’t do that in school.

    George Washington…first president…first man to stand up and represent our great country.

    Firefighters, policemen, soliders…they put themselves in harms way to protect us! They are very courageous! Probably the easiest to do too.

    Doctors, nurses…take care of people day in and day out and give everyday to save lives.

    Teachers…they are educating the future leaders of tomorrow and they never get enough credit for it, ever!

    Last that I can think of is volunteers…in the community or ones that go to greater lengths like helping evacuees of natural disasters.

    Maybe in a? few years. Hope to speak with you again, someday. God Bless…

    I’m familiar with Ross’ work. He’s an idiot whose been attacked on all fronts for making absurd claims. You need some better resources of? information than a psuedo-intellectual and some Christian websites.

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    It’s laughable that you would claim that he did not win. Show me a debate in which he loses. You clearly known nothing about evolution if you don’t understand that? micro evolution is observable and evolution is unanimously accepted by the scientific community. Life was never exterminated completely, or we wouldn’t have it now, for fuck’s sake. Don’t talk about the cambrian explosion like it was a nuclear holocaust. You know nothing of what you speak.

  • Walhei960 says:

    Cont. Hugh Ross, a scientist, answers many of these questions. His papers, Dr. Ross said, are at reasons.org, if you can find them. Getting harder and harder. He is so intellectual. Evangelizes other scientist and University types. It is just so much easier to believe that age old lies about Creation. Most? do not want to believe. If they did have proof, what would they do with their lives? They do not want to change, to humble themselves to God. They do not understand; that is where the joy is

  • Walhei960 says:

    Hitchens did not win, he just refused to believe, to accept the truth. Most atheist scientist cannot answer the question; Where did we come from? They still refuse to accept the fact that biologist, thru studies, say it is impossible for man to evolve from mere cells to what we are today. They say the Earth has not been her long enough for that to happen; NOT COUNTING THE FACT THAT LIFE WAS COMPLETELY EXTINGUISH SEVERAL TIME ON EARTH.They cannot explain the Cambrian Explosion. We have Big Bang.?

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    Couldn’t*
    ?

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    No, but you have to understand that those who have read the bible and see that evolution is not compatible with the new Earth ideology? that the church once endorsed and that your religion demands that you believe. Also, why is it that Christians haven’t won the theological debate if they’re so well informed? Why did Hitchens die without losing a debate to one of the many religious people he debated? I’m sorry that I could respond to everything you’ve said, but you haven’t made one good point.

  • Walhei960 says:

    Yes, vast majority do not believe in God. Also vast majority of people. That does not make them right. All the questions man has about life and purpose are found only in the Word of God. You did not spend much time at those sites. Most people spend? more time planning a vacation, than they do planning for eternity. Reason most do not know God.

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    The only mass flood that took place around that area was during the time of Mesopotamia, and I believe it was an Assyrian prince or king who rode a barge to safety and sacrificed a? lamb on a mountain. The vast majority of scientists, historians and University professors disbelieve in any god, and many historians speak out against the lies in the bible. There is much misinformation therein, so maybe you should do some research besides ask.com. I’ve looked at these sites, and they are all false.

  • Walhei960 says:

    Well to them it was the whole world. Lots of archaeological evidence for me, but not for others. Takes some Faith. Also study in many other areas, beside the flood. If proof was everywhere and? easy to see, even then people wold not believe. I really do not care about the flood. There is so much evidence in other places. reasons.org, Bible prophecy, Bible answers. bible archaeology. there are dozens, maybe hundreds of sites. But people CHOOSE to not look. Choose not to test the Bible.

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    I may not know much about the bible, but I do know that argument is bullshit. Eye? witnesses to people hundreds of years ago means nothing unless they were credible historians. The story of Jesus’ birth had been floating around the Mediterranean for about a thousand years before Christ. Horus was spoken of in the Egyptian book of the dead and shared a very, very similar life.

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    First of all, no? flood in that region ever took place that would indicate to them that the whole world was flooded. Secondly, I believe the bible says that the world was flooded, and god is not limited to the knowledge of man.

  • Walhei960 says:

    Dead sea scrolls have been studied? for fifty yeas. Never proved wrong. Eyewitnesses to Romans, Greeks, and others.So you do not believe any of them existed? Middle ages did not exist? Alexander did not exist? Bible was written by 45 completely different people over a 1500 yrs. Yet is harmonizes perfectly. Most New Testament written within living memory of those who knew Christ. Paul’s around 30 top 55 AD. After Christ died. Most other books too.

  • Walhei960 says:

    Much mis information about the Ark. It contained animals needed for living. Not every creature on earth. Flood was regional not world wide. But to those who lived at that time, the world was flooded. Rome was said to rule the World. But no one knew about other continents at that time. So writers thought? is was the whole world. No penguins in the Arc and such. Every creature of that region. Marine engineers say Arc dimensions are perfect for that type of craft. Visit reasons.org, explore.

  • Walhei960 says:

    Christian, yes. Thought that was obvious. Life is too precious to spend it lost in a drug induced stupor. Your right that eventually many drugs will become legal. I am saying it is not good for people. Simple. Like immigration, granting amnesty will lead to more and more illegal’s. I have seen two amnesties in my life time all it does is encourage more. Drugs the? same thing. Legalizing drugs will lead to more and more drug use. More dependents on others, taking care of the sick, brain damaged.

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    Nice bullshit. Too bad you completely avoided my? point and you still need to answer what I said. I really hate that circumnavigating bullshit religious people do.

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    There is nothing divine about this bullshit. Noah’s ark is a story that is physically impossible for many reasons, and the apostle Peter warns of the apostle Paul. Co-authors of an infallible document contradicting each other is pretty obvious evidence that? it’s bullshit.

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    The dead sea scrolls have been rebutted and eye? witnesses 2000 years ago mean nothing. You must remember that this book was written before and after Christ, but he lived in an illiterate part of the world. Those who wrote about him only decades later had been given these stories through other people by ear. No to mention that the virgin birth was a mistranslation, and has been accepted by the church despite this obvious fact.

  • Walhei960 says:

    You are misinformed. The Bible is the same as it was written, and adopted by the Council of Trent. The Dead Sea Scrolls prove the Bible has never changed. Certain books were rejected because the writers did not know Christ personally. Writers of Books of the Bible were eye witnesses to the miracles of Jesus. Many books were rejected, but the Catholic Church still uses some. The Bible is the True Word of God. It is as if we were looking at Jesus and talking to Him directly. Divinely? inspired

  • Walhei960 says:

    God of the Gap? God is, and always will? be. No gap.

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    There is no correlation whatsoever in what you’re saying. You’re just using that “god? of the gap” logic to justify your bullshit belief.

  • HatemailMagnet says:

    You? are aware that the bible has been edited many times over the centuries, correct? It’s very likely that those prophecies were pushed in there hundreds of years after the bible was written.
