Gay Marriage should Not be Permitted

Zarroette

PrefaceI thank Zarroette for this debate. I hope she agrees to accept, and I look forward to a cordial, engaging exchange of views. If she would like to alter any rules or formatting, she should PM me prior to acceptance. This is, of course, an issue that is important to me personally, and so I hope to defend my position well. Due to the tendency for some users to cast ideological ballots on sensitive current-issue topics like this one, there is a mi...

Gay marriage is a sin

Bunny_Butt
Mariodude34500

We all know that it is against God's will for two people of the same gender to get married, it says clear in the holy book the Bible that God wants people of different gender to get married and build a family. I personally do not understand why it should be legal for gay people since it is a sin just to be gay, they should be taught from a very young age that it is NOT okay to be gay or have gay preferences of any kind, children should know that they will end up in hell with eternal pain and suf...

God exists

Skynet
Envisage

This debate is about the existence of God, specifically, the Christian God of the Bible, Old and New Testament. I will endeavor to show that there is a weightier body of evidence that God exists above my opponent's. This will be based primarily on historical events. You should be familiar with history from secular and Biblical sources. It is my position that the question of the existence of the God of the Bible is 1. testable: Susceptible to being tested. With respect to the scientific m...

Are tacos and burritos the same thing?

King_Bacon_1_my_butt
SolomonMcMan

I say that Tacos and Burritos are the same thing in their essence. They both have shells and are both filled with various fillings and condiments. When one eats either or they still experience the same delicious Mexican flavor. Both can be covered with sour cream and they are both held in your hands when eaten. Basically the same thing....

Morality cannot logically exist without God

thejames
Pase66

Without God, it is impossible to have an objective moral standard. An atheist has no logical justification for a belief in right and wrong or to criticise anything on the basis of morality. If there is no God, human being a worthless. Life is no more valuable than non life. Rape is justified and encouraged if it produces offspring and helps to out breed your competitors. If evolution is true: sociopaths are the most well adapted people to reality. People should aspire to ridding themselve...

AdvancedAtom
TommyB12

This is a debate to see if morality is able to exist without God, I am Pro, meaning it CAN exist without God. I decided to do this one a little differently, we are only going to make arguments and no counter arguments or rebuttals, the voters with decide if they make sense or not... Round 1 : acceptance of the request to debate and acceptance of the rules. Round 2 : The arguments. Remember no counter arguments and no rebuttals. Good Luck ! And I hope no bias from the voters....
