Christian book of Daniel - prophecy 2.0

Albert
Aceviper2011

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...

The Irish cannot go to the heaven

Man_Of_Few_Words

According to my genealology, I am mostly Irish. There's a little English, a little German, a little Norwegian, and way too much French in there, but the Irish wins out by a slight margin. Now my question is, if I am 5/8ths Irish, does that mean 5/8ths of me is prohibited from going to heaven? Because I know Irish do not go to heaven, but I wonder about people who are not entirely Irish? I mean, I worry that if only the French, German, Norwegian and English part of my soul go to heaven, then...

I'd like to thank my opponent for accepting the debate, but I won't. Mostly because I can't see the future, therefor do no know if he will accept. I argue you (alk09) are not funny. My argument entitles that I do not find you funny. I also conclude that you probably have an ugly and smelly face....

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....
