My place in this argument is that war id not necessary The most likely beginning of war was when a tribe gained some form of advantage over its neighboring tribes whether by a good leader a good crop return it doesn't matter. It took over its neighbors and gained more population so it had even more advantage in the next "War". I am going to call those alpha tribes. They conquered their neighbors and gained even more power until they controlled lots of people and land. At some point they are goi...

Atheism is more reasonable and positive than Deism

SweeneyTodd

From my understanding, a lot of people call themselves deists because they think it's better to believe in something rather than nothing: it's more optimistic and more logical. I not only think it's silly to choose deism over atheism but atheism is definitely more optimistic....

God loves you

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Ragnar

For this debate, no agnostic and no atheistic arguments are permitted. If you assert that God is not there, or that he cannot be proven to be there, then you are in effect saying there is nothing to debate about and if you make atheistic or agnostic assertions, you are automatically rejecting the premise of this debate without explaining why you feel God does not love you.You will probably win the debate if you make atheistic or agnostic assertions and in response, I offer no fu...

Occam's Razor Applies To The Theory of God!

Ajab
Double_R

Greetings! I have seen that in many debates the argument of Occam's Razor is used to debunk the concept of God. It is argued that because the belief that God does not exists is less complex, we must reach the conclusion that God does not exist. For this debate we will assume that Occam's Razor is a sound theory. My opponent should start immediately. As for the explanation as what is Occam's Razor I present the following: 1. 'we may assume the superiority ceteris paribus [all things bei...
