Is religion bad for the mind?

BradleyEB

I personally think that yes, religion can be good for some but can devastate a mind who has not come to decide what they think is right for them. The question I am asking is, can religion be a negative aspect towards thinking and morality, and why. I think that when religion is forced onto a young mind (extremely vulnerable) it can have devastating effects in the person's mind and overall character later in life. But I have already told you what I think, so please give me your thought on th...

Students should never be forced to repeat a year at school.

Grade Retention should not be an option for students failing classes and also failing to be present at summer schools. -Academic achievement of kids who are retained is poorer than that of peers who are promoted. -Achievement gains associated with retention fade within two to three years after the grade repeated. -Kids who are identified as most behind are the ones "most likely harmed by retention." -Retention often is associated with increased behavior problems. -Grade retention has a n...

Does the Bible teach complete Pacifism?

Does the Bible teach that we should never use violence, participate in just war, or defend ourselves? I will be Con, I believe the Bible tells us that there is a righteous use of force that is not considered sin. Only Christians (e.g. Protestant ,Baptist, etc.) who will be basing their arguments off of the King James Bible (KJV) will I debate. Catholics may participate while abiding the rules above. No Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Buddhists, Muslims, or any other religion that does not believe...

Does Religion harm society?

Unbound_MInd
PointlessQuestions

The Motion that religion harms society is about religions impact on society. Not about its basis or moral teachings. this is a clausal claim. we can all agree that religion does foster social harmony and inclusion. but that is not the point of the motion. if a religion teaches to love their enemies but ends up causing war and death, than we can agree that religion may try to have a more positive aspect ends up bringing in more of a negative aspect. feel free to argue your motion...

Gay Marriage should Not be Permitted

Zarroette

PrefaceI thank Zarroette for this debate. I hope she agrees to accept, and I look forward to a cordial, engaging exchange of views. If she would like to alter any rules or formatting, she should PM me prior to acceptance. This is, of course, an issue that is important to me personally, and so I hope to defend my position well. Due to the tendency for some users to cast ideological ballots on sensitive current-issue topics like this one, there is a mi...

Mormonism (LDS) is most likely false

Joshguy77

Hello my name is Andrew and I've been meeting with some Mormon missionaries as of late and have yet to be persuaded by their arguments (if even a single argument as of yet sadly). I would love to give them the best shot possible and I have not been able to find good resources online supportive of their beliefs outside of their own (in my opinion biased) mormon sources. My opponent should be able to show that 1)The LDS faith has more historical credibility than Christianity and that 2...
