Is the Bible fictional?

Hirakula

To begin, I'd like to make clear that I am an atheist, and I believe strongly that the Bible is, to be blunt, nonsense. I am taking the Pro position, meaning that I will be attempting to argue against claims that the Bible is true and accurate.RulesForfeit results in an automatic loss. Semantics should be kept to a minimum.Standard conduct applies. Please refrain from discussing the p...

God broke his promise to Abraham and the Bible admits it

brett.winstead

As a Bible skeptic, I love debating Bible issues to show fallacies in the Bible so I would love to get into a debate about the reliability of of the Biblical God's promises. After all, if He cannot be relied on for one promise, how can he be trusted on any promise? This is for Bible believers only. First round is for acceptance and I will go ahead and put a little info out there. God promised this to Abraham:

"the Bible does not teach masturbation is a sin"

dairygirl4u2c

the two passages that are often used as proof that masturbation is wrong, are usually misinterpreted. one is onan. God said to onan, to impregnate his deceased brother's wife. instead, onan pull out, and spilled his seed on the ground. many argue that what was wrong here is that he spilled his seed, it went to unproductive use etc, that masturbation is likewise a sin. however, it's pretty clear that God was mad because he didnt follow his command to impregnate her. the other is in Matthe...

The Modal Ontological Argument Establishes God's Existence

Rational_Thinker9119

IntroductionThe Modal Ontological Argument is as follows: 1. It is possible that a maximally great being (God) exists. 2. If it is possible that a maximally great being exists, then a maximally great being exists in some possible world. 3.

There Are Good Secular Reasons to Disallow Same-Sex Marriage

Contradiction

HonestDiscussioner and I have agreed on terms. I will launch immediately into my opening statement.~The state regulates marriage for a reason. It dispenses benefits for a reason. Understanding what this reason is will tell us what criteria are and are not relevant to marriage, and thus whether any rights are being denied.

Ave! This is a debate challenge to the DDO user qopel. If anyone who is not qopel should accept this debate, then it results in an automatic forfeit and win for myself. Qopel does not allow challenges or messages, so I'm simply hoping that he would read this while browsing around DDO.God is a maximally great being, and...

Is Science Compatible with Religion?

qopel

No Bible verses No new arguments in later rounds No semantics There are many people who claim that science and religion can co-exist. Science is based of facts that can be proven, while religion is based on faith. An Atheist doesn"t have to accept science to be an Atheist. An Atheists doesn"t even have to know a thing about science. You can be an Atheist by just not believing in God. Science can"t prove there is no God, but science can prove things in the Bible are false. Science has gi...
