Greetings to all users of debate.org. In an extended hiatus, I was overcame to login to DDO for a reason that I can't quite place my tongue on. Upon logging in, I have found that the website has changed considerably. The active users I once new are for the most part gone, and a new set of users has taken their place. The website format is largely changed, and I find navigating it far more difficult than I care to admit. As I currently see it, I find no compelling reason to resume activity...

it is better to call babies who are just becoming aware, as agnostic than atheist

linate

it is better to call babies who are just becoming aware, as agnostic than atheist (to be sure you could call them both depending on definitions, but this is focusing on having to choose which is better) the commonly accepted approach to atheism and agnosticism, is to say the first is no belief either way, and atheism as a proactive disbelief in God. the oxford dictionary defines agnostic as "a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God." Webster's dictionary defines atheist...

Rap Battle

Phoenix61397
9spaceking

This is a rap battle, self-explanatory. Censored cursing is allowed, but some things are over the line, such as very aggressively sexual or racist lyrics, etc. I'll let voters decide what crosses this line. There's a 48 hour debating period and a 2,000 character limit. My opponent must pass on a round, either first or last, depending on preference. Thanks in advance to whoever accepts....

Atheists say Pascal's Wager cannot be won and I agree.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
NathanDuclos

Since an atheist asserts there is no God, then the atheist must also assert by default that Pascal's Wager cannot be won, because if it is possible for Pascal's Wager to be won and a person can gain eternal life or heaven by living the best or the most moral and or altruistic life possible, that would mean God is there to honor the Wager. Atheists assert God is not there. so the atheist must assert that it is not possible to win Pascal's Wager. On this, I agree with the atheists. It is not po...
