Churches, mosques, synagogues, etc. ought not be exempt from federal taxation.

smurfy101
Unitomic

Argument 1: Tax exemption constitutes an endorsement of religion. Tax exemptions give these institutions more money. This is a simple fact. Regan v. Taxation with Representation (US Supreme Court) decided that a tax exemption has the same effect as a cash grant. This is unconstitutional. Argument 2: Tax exemption favors larger churches, which are often predatory. This credit varies from church to church. Your average church may pull in a good amount, but definitely not as much as Kenneth C...

brian.bors7

I believe that Israel belongs to the Jews to be governed and ruled as a religious nation. Jerusalem was built by Jewish hand and the only reason they left was because they were forced off by the Romans. I don't wan't to hear anti antisemitism or Islamophobia just tell me your opinions and I will share mine....

Should Public Prayers be Allowed in Schools?

bob-bo
Abdullahthegreat

My belief is that public praying in schools should not be allowed in schools. The reason for this is to not separate students into social groups such as "The Christians" or "The Muslims" and other religion social groups. My second reason is to ban/ not allow Public prayers in schools is because it is violating other religions of other students and forcing religion onto children. My third and final reason are aggressive discussions may be done when talking about this subject. Which distracts chil...

Background about me. I learnt at school Torah for 11 years (since primary school) and I love reading cosmology books in my free time. I am atheist. I believe that the universe was formed 14.8 billions yrs ago, earth was formed 4.5 years ago and I also believe that we are 'star stuff' and a by-product of evolution. I wont start listing my arguments. I just want to start by the other side trying to contradict my points. I want the other side to address my points and prove his point in any...

God does not exist (probably)

batman01
JimShady

This is a debate in which pro (me) has to prove that God does not exist (probably) where God is defined as God: the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being. The god does not necessarily have to be the Judeo-Christian god but must give some sort of moral direction (ie cannot be a god who has not seen or done anything since the beginning of time). Thanks, I hope this will be a great debate....

Is there evidence for the god of the Bible?

Skywalker900
NKaloms

The rules for this are that you will not post your argument in the first round. The first round is the introductory round for the contenders to get to know who they are talking to. The second round will be the official start of the debate and the third and fourth rounds will be rebuttals. My name is Luke and I have been an atheist for a little over a year. I enjoy reading texts such as the Go Delusion and find that there is not sufficient evidence for any god, and that the Christian god is a g...

It is better to believe in the God of the Bible than to be an Atheist

kwagga_la
Ockham

My position is as follows: If I believe in God and it turns out God did not exist then I don"t have to face any accountability for my disbelief. If I am right that the Christian God does exist then eternal awards awaits me when I die and still do not have to face any accountability and do not have to face any judgment. If the atheist is right he or she will not have to face any accountability for not believing in God. But should the atheist be wrong he/she will be held accountable and will have...
