Balacafa
Valkrin

As pro I believe that when voting on debate.org (using a 7 point system) no points should be given for the usage of sources. Just so my opponent is aware. I am not against the usage of sources.

No, these people are stupid, and narro...

If you accept this debate without my approval, you automatically lose the debate. Please leave a comment if you wish to accept this debate. I am looking for a serious debate with someone who truly believes that theism has done more "good" than "bad" for humanity, not simply someone looking to argue the con position. I am game to argue on theism as a whole, or one of the three theistic regions specifically. That being said, this debate will be 5 rounds, the first acceptance; second, opening a...
