Trollord

This is on the existense of the christian god. Con-- Me, I am christian and will argue that god DOESN'T exist. Pro-- You, you must be atheist and will argue that god DOES exist. The purpose is that after I calmed my christian bloodlust against atheism in my first month here i got bored of the god debates that take up about one-fifth to one-seventh of our beloved site. So i want to spice it up a bit. And the christian god as described in the bible (for standard lets use the KJV) is t...

Yes, Obama is part of the Executive Branch, not the Judicial Branch. Therefore, the rest of the Supreme Court should choose alone the new Supreme Court member to replace Antonin Scalia....

Moral codes from God are subjective.

godtraitor
Burls

I will be arguing the Pro position in this debate. Any moral code claimed to be given from God is entirely subjective, prone to be erroneous and, therefore, should be considered unreliable as a moral standard. Round 1 - Acceptance. Rounds 2 and 3 - Arguments and rebuttals. Round 4 - Final rebuttal/closing argument. Best of Luck!...

Joey888

I think that we should not be able to use common core because it is a waist of time. and if you now the answer you shouldn't need to right how you got the answer. If the teacher wants you to show your work that's fine. But you shouldn't have to show your work if you now how to do it and if the teacher now you now how to do the math correctly. You shouldn't have to fill out two peaces of paper just to show your work. Also If you do common core in a business they are not going to hired you becaus...

Andrew820

I personally am a person who studies in a mixed school and really like it. There are various reasons for this. Firstly, i feel students in a mixed school interact better and that is where they mostly learn how to interact. Imagine you going to a mixed school in high school from a single sex school in primary. It will feel awkward, right? Similarly, imagine going from a single sexed school to face the world and pursue your ambitions. Basically what i am saying is that finishing education in a si...

Christianity and Evolution are Incompatible

UNOWN301
Longline

There are many who claim that the belief in the biological theory of evolution is incompatible with the belief that Christianity is true. In other words, one cannot be a Christian and believe evolution accurately describes how the vast array of biological diversity came about on this planet. I will argue against the notion that evolution and Christianity are incompatible. My position, therefore, is that the theory of evolution is 100% compatible with Christianity. I do agree that evolution i...
