Origin of the earth: God vs Evolution

Shoj-Nothang

Creationists say that evolution doesn't make sense because you get something from nothing and evolutionists say we have the same problem; however we do not. Evolution is all about nature God is not nature therefore he is not bound by natures law. A law of nature is that you can't get something from nothing (the universe). In order for anything to exist whatever existed had to be so powerful that it could defy the laws of nature therefore whatever came first would not be natural but supernatura...

Is the Federal Government necessary to have a stable life here in the United States

mikestout16

The Federal Government is not necessary to have a stable life here in the U.S. Here are some reasons why: The State Government has the ability to over-ride the Federal Government, so let the States decide their own laws. The Government is trying to control every aspect of your lives but you do not see the State Government doing that. The Federal Government acts like a "figurehead" if you will. There is no use for a "Government" that is controlling, can be over-ridden, and acts as a threat to the...

Should we reform the political parties in America?

star2017

Round 1 acceptance, round 2 argument, round 3 rebuttal, round 4 conclusion Most Americans do not align them self with a political party. Over 90% at the last poll, before 2010 census, viewed themselves as independents. So why do we force them to pick republican or democratic party? Also our beliefs are so loosely defined that it is hard to determine which party stands what. A democrat is liberal to moderate and a republican is conservative to moderate. There is high over lap in the moderate are...

Euthanasia, is it good or bad?

eheinrichs19

I believe that Euthanasia is okay unless it is for another reason. Euthanasia can help someone who is suffering with cancer and cannot talk, see, hear, taste, and feel. You may be brain dead, you have nothing you can do, so you could decide to let them go. Euthanasia is good because the person, or animal suffering shouldn't have to suffer more. Some people on another debate state "It is a quick and painless death. This is better than having to die slowly in pain and fighting", said by a 21 year...

There Is Probably An Afterlife

OpponentDestroyer

IntroductionIn this debate I will be arguing that it is more likely that there is an afterlife, and that the common materialist/physicalist notion that when our brains stop working, we cease to exist, is simply mistaken, convincing though it may be for reasons I will address.
