God's existence - it is reasonable to conclude a supernatural cause of existence

dairygirl4u2c

God's existence - it is reasonable to conclude a supernatural cause of existence bottom line: if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. if you see a magician who waves his wand and makes cats turn into dogs, you could argue a natural explanation is possible, and perhaps even argue that it is preferable, given most times magic tricks have explanations. but, the most direct observation is that violations of natural laws have occurred, and / or things outside of nature. at...

Is it possible to romantically love more than one person at once?

raqueljb

(1.) Both sides agree to the definition of love that is given here. Love is an intense feeling of deep affection. (2.) Both sides have also agreed to the definition of romantic love. Romantic love is when you feel an emotional high and passion when you and your lover are together. (3.) Romantic relationships involve intimacy between people, whether it is between two people or more. A person may be involved in a romantic relationship with as many people as they want. Referring back to the defi...

Romantic infidelity is not necessarily immoral.

TheBunnyAssassin

The claim is that romantic infidelity is not necessarily immoral. Under certain circumstances, there is nothing inherently wrong with cheating on one's partner. I, the instigator, will provide evidence confirming this claim. The contender will attempt to refute the claim by responding to the presented evidence. The first round is for acceptance. The second and third rounds are for debate. The fourth round is for closing statements....

The importance of science and religion

Gabriel7159
junior_dominator

Which has benefited mankind more? Religion or science? Many would agree that science has due to the fact that religion has spawned wars and disagreements across the globe when we can all agree on science because it is a common ground for curiosity among everyone. But...where would science be without religion? Without religion, most scientific studies over the years would have nothing to argue with, thus replacing faith with more theories and even more questions with no answers. This would eventu...

Free will exists only if the soul exists

The processes possible in a physical world can be classified into two categories random and deterministic, it follows therefore that in order for free will to exist there must be a non physical construct behind the scenes to enable free choice i.e. a soul....

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Kyle_the_Heretic

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...

Would Killing 70,000 People (Civilians) Justify Ending A War?

Pretty.Odd
MasterDbater18xray

As tragic as it is, I am for this argument. War is a terrible thing, and very sad, too. However, war isn't won by sentiment. It's won by soldiers. So many people die in wars, civilians and soldiers alike, that disposing of 70,000 would save much more lives than the ones lost. I know that's not for certain, but taking risks is something that happens a lot in war, from the Revolutionary War to Afghanistan. Too many times we have underestimated the enemy and sent in men and women, many with familie...
