God Can Gain Knowledge While Being Omniscient

Rational_Thinker9119
zmikecuber

The burden of proof will be shared. I will be arguing that there is no explicit contradiction in God gaining knowledge while still being omniscient by definition, like some may think. My opponent will argue it is a contradiction for God to gain knowledge if he is omniscient, because if God knows all there is to know already, then he cannot know more. God For...

Abortion

It's inhumane for someone to kill a living being when it has the potential for life and so much more, especially as the baby has had no chance to experience the joys of life. It is no different to murder....

something can not be true and false at the same time.

A far superior individual stated something cannot be true and false at the same time. A truth is a truth. A falsity is a falsity. Seeing as I clearly have a low iq I must agree with this as my opinion is merely an opinion. The individual was clearly telling the truth so it must be impossible to disagree with this statement. You being the con will clearly be unable to argue against the statement that - something can not be true and false at the see time....

Ground rules: 1) be respectful, I both expect to give and receive it, 2) for any statistics, give a link to a non biased source, 3) try to be objective of the situation, this is about politics as a whole, not for a small town, and 4) please do not invoke religion to prove your point, though I encourage you to use it as a reference point. I am exited to see your opening argument....

God exists

Con will say whether he wants to show why my arguments don't work, or he could attempt to show the absence of God. Con can give an argument in Round 1. NOTE: Do NOT forfeit. If someone forfeits a debate, the debate will quit updating. If you do forfeit, the other person will automatically 'win'....

Euthanasia should be available to everyone who is considering suicide.

philipisbad
Reformist

My position is that euthanasia should be available to anyone who wishes to kill themselves. I am not stating that everyone will have easy access to euthanasia like they have access to a can of Coke. There must be counselling, talking with the families, and a lot of time to reconsider the decision. This is important because the individual cannot be making this decision because of treatable mental health issue or a sudden whim of emotion. This must be a rational decision based on their convictio...
