About Me:I am a George Fox University Biblical Studies / Writing and Literature graduate. I love discussing religion. I am a nondenominational protestant member (though I attend a Baptist Church). I have a Master of arts in Theological studies from George Fox University. I will be pursing doctoral work at Oxford.
Activities:Bowling, Martial Arts, Running, Soccer, Weight Lifting
Beliefs:I am a Christian Independent(however I am a registered republican) who strongly disagrees with far left policies. I prefer debating religious topics considering that is the focus of my studies. I am a reformed Arminian who disagrees with every letter in TULIP. I do not believe in inerrancy of scripture but rather infallibility. Jesus is the Son of God, who truly died and was truly raised. I believe in the Trinity and that Hell is eternal.

Secular morality is superior to religious morality

I could mention many of the atrocities committed in the name of religion historically, but I find this to be an argument that doesn't work very well. If you look at the last century or so, the biggest component of global violence is state violence, and its motives are largely political. Trying to lay this violence at the feet of religion (or secularism for that matter) is a contrived exercise in guilt by association. So I'd like to approach this subject in a different way: by trying to determ...

Homosexual men should be allowed to donate blood

TheShamelessTruth
InquireTruth

Round 1-Opening Arguments Round 2-Rebuttal Round 3-Rebuttal Round 4-Conclusive Statements Round 1-I do feel that homosexual men should be allowed to donate blood. The blood has to be screened so if there is something wrong with their blood it will not be used. So there really is no good reason to stop homosexual men from donating blood. I find the practice of denying someone blood based on an assumption of a willing donor to be foolish, especially when any skepticism can be easily proven....

If the B-Theory of time is true, then Christianity is implausible

Rational_Thinker9119
InquireTruth

This debate will not be a debate on whether B-Theory is true or not. This debate will be about whether or not Christianity would still be plausible if B-Theory is true. Basically, we essentially assume B-Theory is true, and argue based on that axiom whether or not Christianity would still have a reasonable chance of surviving based on this notion. I will also be taking on the burden of proof, meaning all Con has to do is sufficiently undermine my claims better than I substantiate them. Firs...

Brian Griffin is cognitively dissonant in regards to religion

socialpinko
InquireTruth

Brian Griffin is a fictional character on the show Family Guy[1]. On the show he is known for being an atheist. I will argue that his being so contradicts past experiences of his over the show's course.===Rules===1. Drops will count as concessions.2. Semantic or abusive arguments will not be counted.3. New arguments brought in the last round will not be counted.4. R1 is for acceptance/clarification. Argumentation begins in R2.5. BoP is shared between Pro and Con.===Sources===[1] http://familyguy...
