Is Y'shua the Mashiyakh?

yoshidino
Emilrose

This debate is NOT about the christian Jesus, It is only about the Yehudi, Y'shua of Nazareth accounted for in the Aramaic writings of the "shlikhim" (sent out ones) of Y'shua. Of couse I will not use these writings to support the validity of them. I will only use the TNk to support the writings. So the subject question: Y'shua, Is he or is he not the Mashiyakh?...

Parents should not be allowed to impose religion on their children.

Parents should not be allowed to impose religion on their children. The imposition of a parent's religion on their child should not be allowed due to the fact the child would be unable to determine whether or not that religion suits their own individual viewpoint. This is true for the following reasons; 1. Imposition of religion is harmful to a child's health in both psychological and social ways.

Rd 1 - acceptance and rules Rd 2-5. Debating Each debater must have a credible source for all definitions and claims. Treat each essay like an academic paper. Citations are a must. BOP must be shared, judges should vote for whoever made the best case. Nothing can be proven nor disproven since this is an ethical debate. Normally I'm more specific but I'm typing this on my phone. I trust my opponent will accept the spirit of the debate and not force me to define it ad nauseum....

Why do some people deny the existence of God? (Only Atheists)

Alice-The-Preacher
ConservativeLiberal

There are many people who believe there's no God. Why? When I tell them:" No-one has made your cars. No-one has built your houses. No-one has invented electrical equipment." They will ridicule me. They believe some people have made them. So why don't they believe Someone has created the universe which is greater than these material stuff? Don't they look at the universe? Was it created accidentally? They may say:" We can see the people who made our cars. But we can't see God." How do they exce...

Resolved: Evolution is more consistent with the evidence than is young earth creationism.

akstubben

Before we begin, let's give some definitions. Evolution- the scientific theory that states modern organisms descended from ancient ones through a process of gradual modification over billions of years and share a common ancestry. Young Earth Creationism- the belief that distinct kinds of organisms, along with the Earth, were created less than ten thousand years ago The burden of proof is SHARED. This will establish an even playing field for both sides of the debate. The first round is...
