CONNYBOY
KevinLomaxESQ

Based on foundational teachings and beliefs within the religious mindset and a few secular mind, it is adapted and believed that the power of life and death lies within the tongue. We all know that based on how an argument, statement or just about any vocal/ audible means of communication has an influential or intimidating effect on its audience weather direct or in directly.

Final debate on objective morality

benko12345678
Ajabi

Hi ajab, this is my final attempt at moral debates :P I learned from my past mistakes and I asked mikal to be an ad-hoc judge. First round is starting argument. I won't divide it into several points because I'm too lazy. I found something in the quran. Quote (in english) 'Wish for your brother, what you wish for yourself.' NOTE: this quote will become important near the end. If morality is indeed objective, why are there so many different sects of all religions with different views? With d...

Your Existence is Justified By Burning in Hell Forever, if Not By the Blood of Jesus Christ

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Commondebator

Many people say that their existence is God's fault, so they are think they are justified no matter what they have done, do, or will do. Because God caused them to come into existence He has no right to punish them for being the imperfect creatures they were born as. They are wrong. God proved His right to punish them by becoming a man like them and paying their penalty in death. Because He is God and had no sin of His own to pay for, death could not hold Him. He shed his blood so that He c...

No such thing as good an evil but all is controlled by perception of temporal cause and effect

Cgwam
Ajabi

I'd like to debate the essence of good and evil and it's potential non-existence as an independent entity. I argue that good is not a constant and can not exist as a solo entity. I like to debate with a con who can prove me wrong that good is indeed it's on constant and can stand as an independent factor . What is good can only be determined by what is bad and likewise what's bad can only be determined by what is good. Hence when we say what is good we in essence can say what is not bad( wh...

*Leave a message if you want to accept this debate*Details:I am rehashing my previous 'God Most Likely Doesn't Exist' debate with a cleaner resolution more in line with my own personal position. The BoP is on me to demonstrate the resolution is true. My opponent may either rebut my arguments (so I fail to meet my BoP), or provide stronger...

Elektergeld
Secular_Mike

Atheism, or any unmotivated claim that God doesn't exist, is to be considered a religion because it states something we don't have evidences for. Religious is any thought that implies believing without proofs....
