Is a career more important than enjoyment?

ss12

Yes. I think your career in your life is more important than enjoyment because you can always seek happiness.

It is likely that a God or gods exist

usernamesareannoying

Is it likely that a God or gods exist? I am not interested in a semantic debate. By God or gods, I do not refer to a specific monotheistic Judeo-Christian conception of God. Rather, I use a more general, commonplace definition in which gods are either supernatural creators of the universe or even simply supernatural entities that are responsible for a specific aspect of the universe (for example, Poseidon is the god of the ocean, or Mars is the god of war). That is not to say that God cannot...

I am here to prove that I am the only person with free will! This first round is for the Con side to present their argument first. Please do not expect me to quote sources, this is (for me) for sheer brain power, not googling stuff! Good luck!...

The existence of information is evidence for a Creator.

B0HICA
MultiCulturalism

Information. What is it? It has it's own existence, independent of matter and energy. It is non material in nature. It is my belief that a material universe is not capable of creating something that is non material. Therefore it must have originated from outside of our material universe. In other words, God did it. Three rounds. Opening argument. Rebuttals. Closing argument. Seven point voting. I will have the burden of proof, so my opponent will go first Good luck to my opponent. I'm l...
