Existence/Reality and Knowledge.

Hezekiah_Ahaz

In the book of proverbs it says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge.My argument is that anyone who rejects this claim or doesn't fear the Lord cannot know ANYTHING or account for anything he/she claims to know. Since I believe that God is absolutely personal, rational and the source of existence/reality. My argument is that anybody that rejects him is reduced to impersonality, irrationaly, and nearly non existence. That is, the unbeliever cannot even know that he e...

The Christian God must be Evil. So Christianity must be false.

Callen13

1. If God is Perfect, good, and created everything, where did evil originate from? Sin is defined as "An immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law.". Divine law being the law of God. God created everything, Lucifer and people included. Both rebelled against God's rules and therefore were deserving of Hell (also something created by God) because "God is Just". God created Lucifer knowing that he would rebel and burn for eternity for it. God also created humans knowing...

regarding U.S.- a Pure Democracy?

K.GKevinGeary

I am taking the side that the U.S. is not a democracy. Democracy = A system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives Source dictionary. In short a democracy is governed by the masses. Now to expand is the U.S. a democracy that is pure? Pure as in the literary definition, in connection to a democracy that was born by the founding fathers of that time. John Locke impacted the founding fathers. THe phrase...

Marijuana legalization,taxation and sale for adults 18 +

smokeythebea
16kadams

I believe Cannabis(delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) should be legalized as should Medical Cannabis. It should be taxed by the U.S Government using a sales tax in the same way the U.S government does for Tobacco and Alcohol. Persons 18 years or older would legally be able to purchase from " Dispensaries" not "Drug dealers". Cannabis should be legalized for a number of reasons. 1. The drug war is not as effective as most people think it is. 2. Police and the Government have better things to do....

Does God really exist?

CarlaJMena
Ahmed.M

This is a debate that has been going on for over centuries, and it was about time i said something about it. God is not real. Why? well, a Christian would say, "But Jesus HAS proven it! Just look at all of the miracles he did in the Bible! He healed the sick! He changed water into wine! That PROVES that Jesus is the Lord!" Does that make sense to you? Imagine that someone, today, were to come up to you and say, "I am God, and I will prove that I am God by healing the sick and turning water i...

Napoleon v. Washington

16kadams

time: 1812 (Yes I know Washington was not in control then). I argue if there was a war AT THIS TIME in the US (assuming Washington controlled the military) would win. Factors taken out: Britain is not in the US at this time, ignore that war. We are assuming instead Napoleon was the invader of 1812 instead. No semantics trolling etc. 1st round acceptance. I argue Washington wins....
