Is elf-worship a viable religion?

mightbenihilism
PaoPao

Here is my idea: a new religion, devoted to the worship of elves. I think people can more easily connect to the divine through the form of elves. A lot of people have issues with their Fathers, so "Father-God" is problematic. Many people have issues with their Mothers, too, so the Virgin Mary and Guan-Yin would not be acceptable to them. People may have been bitten by the neighborhood bully dog, so the dog-faced god Anubis would scare them. But no one has a problem with elves! Elves, because...

Our Future Is NOT In Space

Many progressives seem to cling to this belief that we will certainly - beyond a shadow of a doubt - colonize other planets in the future. And by "colonize," I specifically mean establishing self-sustaining colonies of *people* on other planets (or moons, for that matter). But personally, I have a hard time believing it. Here's why I'm so skeptical...

Gay is Right in Christianity

Conditions should first be stated: I'll take burden of proof. This debate focuses on Christian views of the subject. Other philosophies and religions are not included in this argument. Many arguments have been made that Christianity does not condemn Gays. The bible clearly states that being gay is wrong: Leviticus 20:13 "If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are gui...

Gun Control Prevents Violence

Simple Rules: R1 is opening statements, R2 is for proof and rebuttals, and R3 is for closing arguments. Pro gets the first word, Con gets the last word. BEGIN! Violence is a lack of self-control that results in a desire to hurt or destroy. It is usually direct outward of the person experiencing the stress and frustration that is at the root of the violent behavior. But it can be self-directed also. It commonly results from a person's loss of rational thought when placed under stress. The over...

Story Telling - Unexpectedly Talking Animals

Saska
JasperFrancisShickadance

For this challenge, I am looking for someone to tell a story with me. The story must, at some point, include unexpectedly talking animals. There are five rounds and my opponent is encouraged to write as much or as little as he/she would like (although a longer story would be much more fun). I encourage plenty of detail, with character names, traits and back stories... It makes carrying on the story more interesting and more difficult. For an example of a similar debate/game, see here http://w...
