The meaning of life is that God is good

LifeMeansGodIsGood
RowanM

Life means God is good. All life shows that God is good, and the biggest proclamation of God's goodness shows in his creation of free-willed beings with creative intelligence similar to His own creative intelligence. If life is not God's creation, then life has no true inarguable meaning....

Naturalism Assumes that Humans are Supernatural

andymcstab
Dan4reason

Fun quick debate:I will be arguing that Naturalism assumes that humans are supernatural and is therefore self defeating. "Naturalism is "the idea or belief that only natural (as opposed to supernatural or spiritual) laws and forces operate in the world; (occas.) the idea or belief that nothing exists beyond the natural world."

Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible

Fox-McCloud
lit.wakefield

Resolution Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible In this debate I will defend the view that it is generally morally impermissible to deliberately terminate the pregnancy two weeks after the moment of fertilization; until the presence of the primitive streak one might argue that the zygote is not definitely an individual — in that period it is yet able to split into twins. In this debate I will not argue on religious grounds. In this debate I will not argue whether or not abortion...
