However, if the child is forced to by a parent, guardian, or other, then it is wrong. I don't want to turn this into an Atheist vs. Theist debate. Round 1 is for acceptance Round 2-4 is arguments Round 5 is closing statements. I wish the best of luck to my opponent....

How could you create life from an inanimate object without a being such as God? The simple an...
