Church is a business, selling faith and hope.


My family left "the church" when I was 6. The reason being was my father was told he was not "worthy" of baptizing my older sister. The church told my family that my grandfather was to complete the baptism. Of course my grandfather was a more prominent figure in the church, and a huge financial contributor and still is today. Today's Christian churches operate as a business, and favor their "customers" who are larger contributors to the organizations agenda....

Science can prove that God doesn't exist


In my opinion our research and science can prove that God is a fictional character and He does not exist. This is a sensible and understanding debate. Do not state your opinion on the Bible or other scripts of the same sort. Use correct grammar and throw your swears out of the window, they are not required here....

The Argument for/Pro presented in the debate "Atheism is reasonably impossible" is flawed


I would like to take up the debate started by errya in "Atheism is reasonably impossible" since his opponent has not replied. The reader should note that the Pro position here is the Con position in other debate. The argument presented for/Pro "Atheism is reasonably impossible" is flawed. It is flawed primarily for two reasons. It relies on: 1. a false dilemma (Materialism or Folk Dualism) 2. a mistaken notion of "Natural Law" (dictated versus descriptive) The first round is to present a...

I'm looking forward to a good debate her...

Christian book of Daniel - prophecy 2.0


I'm For - Book of Daniel speaks of events which 90% have already occurred. Jesus did refer to the book and Daniel, but my position is that the majority has already been fulfilled. Against - Will need to provide strong relation to directly link Daniel to 'apocalyptic' events, which would refers to future (aka 2012+ events). Rules, if my opponent agrees should help the debate run easier. -Short factual replies, if something takes an essay to say, it may lose it's meaning. -If a prophecy...
