Human Propensity to "Sin"

Greetings to my opponent and all viewers. Have fun and good luck in the proceeding rounds. Right, now to express my argument; it is the belief of many that humans are not inherently good, but instead possess the hereditary propensity to "sin." I will advocate this viewpoint. Firstly, we must establish that "sin" exists in religious (and secular) moral and ethical standards, and thus this can't be debated in the argument. Dictionary.com defines "sin" as follows, "transgression of divine l...

Macro-evolution is absolutely incompatible with Christian Doctrine

The "Ground Rules" The challenger will be a Christian who believes that God either did or could have used macro-evolution as His method to create life on earth. This debate will NOT be on the existence of God, non-Christian deities, atheism vs theism, the validity of evolution or the validity of Biblical creation. The Argument: I contend that macro-evolution, as currently understood and popularly accepted, is absolutely incompatible with Christian Doctrine and it is therefore impossible...

Catholicism is more morally admirable than Protestantism

Aziar44

I will argue here that Catholicism is more morally admirable than Protestantism, as a whole. In the tenets in which the two differ, Catholicism is more admirable. It is more consistent in its stances, preaches better morals, and its principles have more positive ramifications than those of Protestantism. I will go into more detail in the next rounds. My opponent must debate that Protestantism is more morally admirable than Catholicism. Thank you to whomever accepts this challenge....

I'm standing at pro Pc and my opponent will be pro Mac or con pc, whatever you want to say. A fully loaded Imac will put you out around $3,000. But a fully loaded Hp TouchSmart IQ800t series with Blue ray, and blue tooth, a wireless keyboard and mouse, for $1,700. even a watered down Mac costs $2,000. Pc also has a vast compatibility with gaming and random stuff for hacking, moding and all the good stuff like that. the debate itself is about all of Mac and PC including price, sorry for...

There should not be a mandatory seatbelt law

Hello, this is my first debate, online or in real life, so please forgive me if I don't follow proper protocol. Please inform me if I am messing something up, if you would be so kind, thank you. I am for the position that there should not be a mandatory seatbelt law. My reasons are: 1. It is a violation of a person's freedom. Seatbelts are there if a person chooses to wear one, and those who want to can wear their seatbelt, but those who don't want to shouldn't be forced to wear one. 2....

To believe in God is simply not enough, since you believe in God surely you must know God?

beem0r

Many Christian think believing in God is enough. Firstly I want to state what people mean by believing in God. It is like this: If I was to believe in someone, I must know that person to believe in that person. Right? I do not understand why people only believe in God, this is one reason why there are so many Atheists these days. For that what puts them off. For that you must know God. Not just believe in God. A Atheist will think, "For that who can believe in God when there is no eviden...

Are the presents of Hell not worth dodging this life for everlasting life?

Thank you, read this carefully It may change you? Hell! Through out history it has been thought of as the most foolish and regretful place to end up out of the whole existence of everything. If I was confronted with a slight possibility of a place like this where you end up after your "first death" I would consider to think about the wording of "what if and "if only". Although there is no proof in the physical world that such a please existence. It would be wise to try and understand the str...
