Creation Vs. Evolution

Dr.Chronosphere
Conservative6120

This first round will be dedicated to accepting the challenge. I am a firm believer in the Bible, and support Creationism. I strongly suggest that we both stay calm on this topic, as it can quickly turn into a heated argument. No name-calling, swearing, or slandering will be allowed. Are you up for it?!...

Possession of handguns should be made illegal

hk1510
Golfer16

Possession of handguns should be made illegal. This is because there are many crimes these days that involve people shooting victims for no reason. Handguns should only be made illegal to the civilians. Police officers can have handguns because they are the ones that prevent crime. The civilians cannot have a possession of handguns because they can do harm to anybody which is bad....

Abortion

a_janis1
KingDerekx

Abortion is the killing of an innocent human being, the right to life is an inalienable right given to every innocent human being, therefore, abortion, as the direct result of the killing of an innocent human child, violates the inalienable right to life. Thus, abortion is wrong. I would like to argue against abortion. There is no layout other than that my opponent should first provide a retort to the paragraph stated above in round one. This is just a free discussion in a relaxed manner. Als...

Ali ibn Abi Talib (AS) was the true successor of prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) after his death.

In the name of God Salam, This debate is because of my Sunni brothers and I will try to use sources of their books and not from our Shia books unless I can't find any Sunni references. I ask God to help both sides find the truth. The Succession to our prophet, Muhammad (pbuh), was an important issue which made Muslims to be departed into different groups (basically Shia and Sunni). Shia (or Shiite ) Muslims believe that Muhammad (pbuh) specified Ali ibn Abi Talib as his successor be...

The San Antonio Spurs will win the 2016 championship

The San Antonio Spurs will win the 2016 championship. People have been saying for years that the Spurs are too old. Year after year these people are proven wrong. While the Spurs lost in the first round last year they shouldn't have lost to the clippers, and they would have beaten the Rockets. With the additions of Lamarcus Aldridge and David West, the Spurs will be able to rest their stars even more. 1. Depth- The Spurs are easily the deepest team in the NBA. Pg. Tony Parker is still on...

women should be able to freely get abortions up to 3 into pregnancy

As the title suggests im a pro life advocat. i believe abortion is a right to which all women should be able to obtain. if a woman decides after finding out that she is pregnant that having a child is something that would not be beneficial she should be able to excercise her better judgement to terminate a pregnancy. while many will argue that this is an infringement on a childs right to life what has to be questioned is whether a life has the right to impair another. child birth is an inherintl...

Does a loving, Christian God exist?

HeraldSarah
mfigurski80

In this case, my definition of God is a singular entity who is completely good, all-powerful, and all wise. If this God exists, then why is evil so abundant in the world? Terrible things happen throughout time, a continuous stream of events with "bad" and "good" events happening constantly. An analogy given in "The Case for Faith", a book written by Lee Strobel, brings up the argument that Peter Kreeft made, which describes the following scenario: A bear is caught in a trap, and a human attempt...
