The Problem of Hell

popculturepooka
Gileandos

The Problem of HellI thank Gileandos for agreeing to debate this very important topic with me. We will be debating the problem of hell. [1]In short, I aim to make the case that the traditional doctrine of hell as eternal, conscious, torment is, in all likelihood, incompatible with the Christian God. If the Christian God has the traits typically ascribed to him by Christians like perfectly lovi...

U.S. Ctizens Have And Ought To Have The Right To Bear And Keep Arms

Oxymoron
malcolmxy

In this debate, my opponent and I will argue the accuracy of the resolution (The people of the United States have and ought to have the right to bear and keep arms) as it relates to U.S. law. Rules:1.) The first round for Con is: acceptance and a positive argument.2.) As I am the holder of the burden of proof, it stands to reason that Con will not make any positive arguments (on...

Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized.

TheSkeptic
Phil

Gay Marriage should be a legal form of marriage for the simple fact that disallowing LGBT groups to marrying is taking a right that should be theirs. I'll let you go first, as I am contending that there are no substantial legal reasons to disallow same-sex marriage, and thus it should be a right for any LGBT couple to marry....

Mr.Cotton-Balls
brendizzle29

I am in strong affirmation that, President Obama is bad 4 the United States of America. President obama is a hypocrite he cast blame on big spenders saying there to blame 4 the economic situation. Then he has a 6 million dollar party when he takes office. He will not salute the flag of the united states cause he says there is no opportunity in America but after 2 generations the obamas have come from nothing to the most influential black family in the world. Obama has little experience and his s...

Yvette
GodSands

Thank you for accepting this debate. If you accept this debate, you agree to the rules and formats of the debate. Breaking the rules and formats of the debate is considered forfeiture. This is in response to my opponent challenging Debate.org's atheists. I carry most of the burden of proof, however, my opponent must defend his position that evolution is untrue. Rules: 1. No insults or ad hominem. 2. The scientific position that no thing can be proved 100% and can only be shown to be clo...

Islam is a direct threat to civilization.

InsertNameHere
Cerebral_Narcissist

This is based off a comment on Cerebral's profile: "Islam is a direct threat to civilisation and progress and efforts must be made to restrict Islamic immigration and to encourage progress in Muslim counties." This got me thinking and as a muslim I would like to challenge this statement. I will intend to argue that Islam has been progressive in ways both past and present, thus isn't a threat to society. Threat: a declaration of an intention or determination to inflict punishment, injury, etc...

Homosexual Behavior Is Immoral

RationalTheism
VenomousPen

I wish to thank my opponent for engaging me in this debate. I look forward to a spirited exchange. I will be defending the historic Christian position that homosexual behavior is immoral. Using the same method that Paul employed in Romans 1:26-27, I will argue that homosexuality is wrong because it is unnatural, meaning that it is contrary to the proper functioning of human sexual organs. Additionally, because both myself and my opponent are Christians, I will also make use of Biblical passag...
