Civilians in America should not have the right to bear arms.


This debate is about the American 2nd amendment- "the right to keep and bear arms".

My first argument consists of the fact that guns are unnecessary. They have no use! A gun is often used to protect oneself against people armed with guns.

Anyone can go to heaven as long as they believe their God is equal to Jehovah?

In Christianity, an individual must believe Jesus Christ is their Lord and savior to enter the gates of heaven. If you didn't already have this understanding, the Jewish God and the Christian God are the same supreme being. Christianity was established after Jud...

Everything is an illusion.


Bornofgod has a few interesting ideas--make that truths--that I differ (and disagree) on. Foremost is his belief that everything is an illusion, and that that God created that illusion. Bornofgod, can you please restate your arguments that everything is an illusion? Feel free to use Scripture (which will for the purposes of this debate be viewed as the word of God) or any other evidence (although I may be compelled to disprove the credibility of the aforementioned evidence). I hope we ha...
