What is the apostasy? Was there even an apostasy? In this debate, my opponent and I will explain to you, the viewer, what the apostasy was and if it even happened or not. For this debate, we will be using the King James version of the Old Testament to show if it prophecies that there was or wasn't an apostasy. This debate will be split into 5 different rounds.

Some of these morons actually think some police officers wake up everyday and go to work in hopes of killing a black person....

In order to defeat ISIS we have to kill the loved ones of terrorists

BrendanD19

This is not a joke but a thing I've seriously been thinking about for quite a while after Trump suggested the idea on his campaign trail. However I'm not convinced Trump is going to stick with the idea after and if he ever gets elected, to what extent the military can refuse orders by the president and how exactly the president can circumvent the Geneva convention in that regard (collateral damage is as I understand permissible in certain situation). Howsoever interesting these questions are tha...
