A God can not be omnipotent, omnibenevolent and omniscient

S2hannah
daley

This is a problem that I have spent a long time considering. I have come to the conclusion that it is not possible to say that there is a God who is all loving, all knowing and all able because of the existence of evil. This is often referred to as the rock of atheism and it has founded my entire attitude toward religion, mainly that attitude is that it is not something I can believe. I look forward to someone who can challenge this statement, and who will debate it openly with me without taking...

There is no objective basis for morality.

Mike_10-4

I am posting a debate on this subject again because this is a subject that I am interested in and I am seeking thoughts and ideas on it. The last debates are here: http://www.debate.org/debates/There-is-no-objective-basis-for-morality./1/ http://www.debate.org/debates/There-is-no-objective-basis-for-morality./2/ My position is that an objective basis for morality has not been shown to exist; that judging or labeling an action as either moral or immoral is the result of individual belief,...

An individual should be a drug addict.

TinyBudha

Hola, this debate is of course about whether or not one should be a drug addict. This sounds pretty obvious but I contend the resolution is true. The burden will be shared, assuming I can prove this is ever true, I win. This will have to do with the individual.I will be speaking As If I am a drug addict to prove my point, you must prove to me that I should not be a drug addict. That is the point, nothing more. Please tell me if you want to debate me in the comments.D...

The same-sex marriage debate is unethically rooted in Christianity

Grayneer
TruthWillOut

If you have ever glanced at the news in the past year you have probably heard something about same-sex marriages being legalized on a federal level. As a matter of fact, this may be one of the most important debates of today and if you ask me I'm clearly for it and wondering why it already hasn't happened. However it didn't take me long to figure this out. When researching, I came across a few refutations and videos against same-sex marriage and conclusively regarded them as rubbish. But I not...

Healthcare is a right.

YeshuaIsTheOneTrueGod
gizmo4me2

No need to introduce yourself, just jump right in. I will state why I believe that healthcare is a right. My reasons: People have the right to their bodies. People have the right to live, and without healthcare, life is not possible. If someone does not want to be sick or injured, they should not have to. It is wrong to force people to suffer....

Life after Death

Dark_Energy
Surrealism

I will demonstrate that life after death is an inevitability. The person who accepts will believe that there is nothingness after death. This is a 4 round debate, with a 48 hour window to argue. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Arguments Round 3: Rebuttal Round 4: Summary Good luck. I hope we both come away learning something....
