No religion in public schools.

Hello! My name is Kurt, and I am in a public highschool. I understand religion should not be forced in school systems. For one to force a religion on another person is truly awful, all men and women should make decisions for themselves. I believe that public school systems should not involve religion in their curriculum. But. What I have noticed is that a great majority of the school, including myself, is Christian. My point here is, if people want to proudly display their Christianity, why sh...

the death penalty should be allowed

The 1,001 Inventions Tour is a Fraud & The Golden Age is a Myth

DavidMGold
Aiham

The primary issue being debated is whether the 1,001 Muslim Inventions is a fraudulent exhibit that is historically false and falsely conflates medieval science with modern science. At issue are inventions or discoveries existing long before Islam. Secondary issues would be the erroneous claim of scientific "miracles" in the Qu'ran, the total lack of Islamic contributions to modern science, and the myth of the so-called "Golden Age" in the Islamic World....

Burncastle

This debate should be impossible to accept. Comment if you want to debate.I will be arguing that one can not reconcile the problem of evil with the existence of an omnipotent, omniscient and omnibenevolent God.My version of the problem of evil goes as follow:1) If an omnipotent, omniscient and omnibenevolent God exists, then there can be no gratuitous evil or suffering in this world.2) There is gratuitous evil and suffering in this world.3) Th...
