God exists.

Ockham
BrettBoelkens

The resolution is that God exists. Pro will be arguing that God exists, while Con will be arguing that Pro has not established that God exists.By accepting this debate, Pro agrees that they have the burden of proof to establish that it is objectively more likely than not that God exists. The rules for assessing this are the standard rules of logic, including the rules of deductive and inductive inference. For example, a deductive argument must be deductively valid and have premi...

God exists (pro) vs God does not exist (con)

Moelogy

I will be arguing in this debate that the case for God is extensive and is most often underrated. I will be using science, philosophy and logic to form the foundations for my arguments for God. I am a Theist and my opponent should most likely be an atheist who denies the existence of God. Definitions : Universe - all of space, matter, time and energy God - The necessary, uncaused, omnimaximal, timeless, spaceless being. Exists - to have an objective being or existence. Rules :...

It is more reasonable to not believe in God than to believe in God.

My argument is that due to the lack of credible evidence for God's existence the most reasonable position is to disbelieve in God. The burden of proof lies on those who believe in God, just as the burden of proof would lie on Bigfoot believers to make their case. Since the burden of proof lies on those who believe in God, then the debate I take it should focus on the Con side of this argument attempting to give credible evidence for God, while I on the Pro side will attempt to argue for the evid...

I do want the final round (3) to be for final replies only, no new arguments, but other than that, please feel free to use any citation format, and post in the round in any order....

Gay Marriage Should Continue Be Legal

BrettBoelkens
NDECD1441

I believe that gay marriage should continue to be legal, at least in the United States. First round is acceptance and opening arguments.Arguments ForOf course, the strongest argument for marriage equality is in fact equality. The United States was founded upon this very principle of equality between all people. Most laws in the Western world are designed to be inclusive and protective of all, so it makes little sense...

All Dreams Will Come True

holla1755
Masterful

It seems many things have suggested that all dreams will come true. By "dream," I mean an ambition; I do not mean a mental experience experienced during sleep. It seems the things include, but may not be limited to, music lyrics, music videos, speeches, quotes, guidance, advice, statements from significant figures, the extreme, sometimes invisible values that have already been found within and about the universe, and, if he exists, God. Shirley Ann Jackson, Ph.D., President of Rensselaer Poly...
