Trey_huebert
gavynwre

I believe that the Earth was created by God. I am a baptist. Some people believe in the big bang theory. If the Big Bang theory was real, then why don't we see other planets just appearing anymore? For every art there has to be an artist who made it, right? I am going to explain why I believe it was God who created Earth....

School Uniforms

Calliegirl21

I think there should not be any school uniforms in any school because, you can't see the inner side of the people you are friends with because you don't really know them. I also say we shouldn't wear uniforms because people show what they like like favorite colors, favorite brands, favorite style. With the uniforms you can't tell what they like at all because everybody is wearing the same type of uniforms. So I don't think we need uniforms....

SargonOfAkkad
1Credo

AveThe resolution of this debate states that "Physicalism is true". Physicalism amounts to the ontological thesis that there is nothing "beyond or above" the physical, and that all actually existing entities are supervenient on the physical. For the purposes of this debate, I will defend the truth of physicalism as...

Atheist-Independent
Oliark

As I am currently obsessed with the whole World War II time period, I decided that this would be an interesting, not to mention original, debate to create. The premise will be as followed: Romania was a more helpful ally to Nazi Germany during the entirety of World War II than Italy was. I will provide a few definition/clarifications just to be safe.

To support my claim, I will be appealing to both scripture and the testimony of the early Church. Grace: the free and unearned favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings. Grace is also the "stuff" God gives you in order for you to do supernatural a...
