Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal in the United States

Freeman
Contradiction

I want to begin by saying how delighted I am to be debating Contradiction on this very important social issue. It's good to be able to argue with someone who is so philosophically inclined. For my part of the debate, I'll be arguing that same-sex marriage should be legal in the United States. Accordingly, in this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no legally tenable reasons to ban same-sex marriage. And secondly, there are good reasons to think th...

Resolved: God's Existence Does Not Entirely Violate Science

Loveshismom
Sagey

I will be arguing that science can support God's existence and surprisingly, REQUIRES God to exist. Examples: 1. The Big Bang could not have happened without God. It violates the law of conservation of energy, which states that matter and energy cannot be created nor destroyed. How do I know I am not contradicting myself? Because scientific laws only apply to physical beings (i.e. Us). God is a spiritual being (John 4:14) and is all-powerful, so physical law cannot apply to Him. 2. The t...

Newly revealed natural scientific laws govern the morality of abortion

givemeliberty
KeytarHero

Thank you for accepting this important debate. The law debated here could alter the way people think about abortion. This debate will test a newly revealed natural scientific law that partially governs the impact that abortion has on society. If this law is valid, then the generally accepted conclusions of the pro life movement will need revision or become invalid. Natural laws are self evident once brought to light and backed up with theory. Natural laws are not invented, they are reveale...

Life has no unquestionalbe value if there is no God who created all things.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Strycora

First round is for acceptance and opening statements. My opponent can be atheistic, agnostic, or of whatever faith can be named under the sun. This debate is about the meaning of life. You can see by my screen name what I think the meaning of life is, but this debate is to question my opponents beliefs about the meaning of life,If I clearly show my opponents beliefs are questionable, I should be awarded the points for having the better argument.&nbs...

Is the Bible against women's rights?

foxxhajti
FollowerofChrist1955

The Bible has multiple quotes against the rights of women. In my opinion, it is a pretty outdated book reflecting the ideologies and philosophies of society during that era. Some quotes from the Bible which reflect this: 1) "You shall not covet your neighbor"s house. You shall not covet your neighbor"s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." Exodus 20:17 - Neither men nor women should be considered anyone's properties by any mean...

Stephen_Hawkins

Does evolution make sense? Well i hardly have an answer now but ill draw up some facts and stories then ill conclude my thoughts.The religion of Evolution The more people I encounter who subscribe to evolution as a plausible explanation for the beginning of the human species, the more I see common ground between atheists and the religious. The underlying aspect is the vehement defense of their beliefs, and the need to debunk outside ideologies in order to prove that they are right. There are...
