Religion has served its time, and is no longer needed

dashdustrider

Religion has become obsolete in today's world. When religion was first introduced it was a way for people to become individual, and to have the rights of an individual. Now with most of the major powers in the world being a people's government, every person is an individual. I argue that though religion has served its time, it is no longer needed. Based strictly on the facts that the purpose of religion has been fufilled, and it does not do good any more....

Jack Bauer would take Bruce Wayne in a bare-knuckle fist fight.

The resolution states that Jack Bauer would take Bruce Wayne in a bare-knuckle fist fight. This implies that Bruce couldn't use his batman suit/weaponry. Jack is much more used to pressure than Bruce. To start off, I will bring up the fact that Jack Bauer has greater motivation. The entire country rests upon his shoulders, while Bruce Wayne has one corrupt city he's defending. The bigger burden upon Jack's shoulder would force him to fight harder and...

GenesisCreation
ThePhilosophersDeduction

"ARMINIANISM is a teaching regarding salvation associated with the Dutch theologian Jacob Arminius (1560-1609). The fundamental principle in Arminianism is the rejection of predestination, and a corresponding affirmation of the freedom of the human will.

Pantheism/Panentheism Is Superior To Atheism

Talib.ul-Ilm
StevenDixon

This debate is about which ideology/belief system is superior to the other psychologically, socially, culturally, etc. The debate is not in specific about the existence of God in any way, shape or form, but is about the superiority of the belief over the other. The burden of proof is on me, and it is the duty of Con to show me how my proof is incorrect or wrong.Superior in this sense means more beneficial/helpful to society, to mankind.The votes must come with a deta...

Convince Me

Rational_Thinker9119
Corridon

If my opponent can convince me that the common theistic arguments for an infinite succession of events, and actual infinte being impossible are flawed and do not establish that infinity is impossible; then they win the debate. I will have to provide reasons why I am not convinced or reasons why I am, but it will be based on the honor system on my behalf. If one checks my debate record, they will see I engage in a lot of silly debates so I do not care about my record that much (in other word...

Mormonism is as valid a Christian form as any other Christian sect.

gusgusthegreat

I want someone to challenge me. I'll make my first arguement sweet and simple: Christian: one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ Mormons profess the teachings of Jesus Christ, so they must be Christians. Remember, the debate is to discredit Mormon faith on Mormon grounds. Otherwise, this debate means nothing. Secondly, only debate if you actually know a decent amount about Mormonism. I want a real debate, not a debate with an ignorent anti-Mormon who dosen't know a th...
