It's not enough to merely refute my claims and show that both pieces may be e...

Is marriage really necessary?

3095

I think, that marriage is cannot be necessary or not. It is loose concept. On the one hand, it is just a list of paper, which do legal your relationship, on the other hand this paper can completely change yours meaning of life. Consequently, what is the purpose of man on the Earth? Definetely, he should leave after himself the continuation, namely procreation. Marriage is something which do your relations stable and give the opportunity to be a family. Family is the main aspect in the marriage...

The Problem of Evil is insufficient an argument against the Christian God

Muted

This debate is simple and I hope to keep it this way. The Problem of Evil is widely debated. I am not disputing that there is evil here. I am disputing that the problem of evil is excuse enough not to believe in the Christian God. That is, to present it as an opposition to the validity of God. I doubt the need of definitions, hence I will not provide one. Rather, I rely on the integrity of my opponent, whoever he/she may be. Rules 1. No trolling/vulgarities. 2. No plagiarism 3. Comment...

Islam makes way more sense than Atheism. It has more evidence towards it. Atheism is completely irrational. There are 3 things atheists can NEVER prove without using theories or speculation. How did the universe come to exist, how did life form on earth spontaneously, and how did this life evolv...
