Relying upon science alone is faulty, as it cannot prove anything.

Is God Real?

Nothing gets people talking like proving the existence of God, so yeah. A philosopher claimed in the 11th century to have come up with a deductive proof of God's existence for what we know as the Ontological argument. Almost 200 years, atheist and philosopher Thomas Aquinas encounter this other philosopher's argument, but like many others, he just didn't buy it. Aquinas did believe in God, it was just as a philosopher, he felt it was important to have evidence for your beliefs. He knew if he wa...

Side-resolution- Voting age limit should be dropped if there is voting test. Lack of knowledge is the reason why voting is 18 plus, right? Then why people who don't anything about the candidates allowed to vote? Surely there should be test for voting, and the age limit dropped....

Australia Day should be changed.

I strongly believe that Australia Day should be moved. On the 26th of January we all celebrate the day that was once called the "First Landing" or "Foundation Day" when now it is reflected as the day of "mourning" by Aboriginal people. The main reason this statement has been argued over for many, many years is because of the suffering and pain that endured on Australia day. The history of our beautiful country is still remembered and treasured by all of us because we are proud of who we are and...

God exists.

Ockham
lannan13

The resolution is that God exists. In my first post, I will discuss some issues relating to definitions and then defend the burden of proof principle.Part 1: DefinitionsThe resolution has two terms, "God" and "exists."My opponent has the privilege of defining the term "God," since he is the one defending the claim that God exists. However, my opponent must not attempt to win the debate by appealing to a rad...

You choose the topic

AribtraryMoniker
fire_wings

This is meant to be a fun, light hearted debate. Offer three silly topics (macaroni is better than spaghetti, we should all wear bowler hats, pokemon is better than yu-gi-oh, etc.) And I'll choose the one I like best. If all of the topics offered are offensive, too serious, skewed, truistic or otherwise inaccessible, then I'll choose a different topic entirely. No real rules, just don't be a dick. I reserve the right to expand on what that means as necessary, but hopefully I won't have to....
