vi_spex

Definition: Atheism is the absence of belief in any god. (it is not, necessarily, a belief that there are no gods) Since there is no reasonable evidence for the existence of any god, it is more reasonable not to believe in any gods. It strikes me that anybody who wishes to argue Con in this debate only has two possible lines of attack: [1] Provide reasonable evidence that a god exists [2] Provide a reasonable explanation as to why no evidence exists I am confident that I can refute...

Odin is superior to Yahweh

Buckethead31594

Greetings! I have been absent form this community for a long time, so I figured I would drop in for a visit. I have been studying pagan beliefs for a few months now, and have critically analyzed the qualities of Odin against the popular deity known as YHWH (Yahweh). In my research, I have come to the conclusion that Odin is, in fact, a superior deity to Yahweh. Both in a historical and religious sense. I will, of course, elaborate later. Let me begin by saying that I am a pagan (specifically...

Does God approve same sex marriage? (Evidence from the Bible)

Betsy123
SwepicSwag

Does God approve same-sex marriage? No, at all God does not approve same-sex marriage. According to the Bible in Romans 1 26-27 it says ' And there came two angels to Sodom at evening, and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom. And Lot, seeing them, rose up to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; 2 and he said, "Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant"s house and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early and go on your ways." And t...

ewolf

After debating atheists on the topic that it is more reasonable to believe in God rather than not to, I will now debate any Christian that believes Jehovah's Witnesses do not have the truth in the Bible. First round is acceptance. Accept only if you are a Christian who believes Jehovah's Witnesses' beliefs are not Biblical. Thank you. ...
