All religions need to unite, and understand what religion actually is

Bruntru
harrytruman

I believe that all religions should unite, and truly understand what religion is, as if believers are capable to hold wars due to their different religions, they are completely looking at the wrong end of what religion is. First of all I would like to clarify what I consider as a religion: A religion is a group of people that worship to do good, appreciate what they have, seek to help others, and acknowledge that there must be a creator of the universe....

You can't be a theist and a scientist simultaneously

Batman8214
extian

I would first like to that anyone that has accepted this topic. The first round will be acceptance and definitions only. Pro is arguing that scientists cannot be theists. Con is arguing that scientists can be theists. The following rounds will have their main contentions, rebuttals, and final arguments. I will be expecting reliable resources for both sides. Definitions: Theist- 1) The belief in one God as the creator and ruler of the universe, without rejection of revelation (distin...

The Moon would make a great God. Why not?

Previan

Allow me to make the case for the Moon as being a potentially 'great God'.The moon has always fascinated man. The moon is globally visible and 'accessible'.The moon connects the past the present and the future.The moon influences our habitat and it speaks to us in a myriad of ways.There is only one moon on this earth and it has a topography that suggests a benign facial image.We have been to the moon and we could send our ashes to it when we are dec...

The Bible is reliable

kwagga_la
Previan

Trying the same the Debate again. The Bible is reliable in that it accurately recorded events as it happened. To show that the Bible is unreliable it will be up to Con to show that the events were not accurately recorded. Con may also use arguments that the Bible contradicts itself. Please use only one to two examples at most per round....

On Balance, Brexit is Bad for the U.K

Emilrose
CharlesGrey

As Pro, I will be arguing that (on balance) the British vote to leave the European Union--otherwise known as 'Brexit'--will have decidedly more negative implications for the nation than positive. My opponent will naturally have to argue that this isn't the case and negate the resolution. Debate Structure: -Round one is reserved for acceptance. -Round two will be opening arguments. -Round three will be rebuttals. -Round four will be additional rebuttals, defence of argument...

There is racial bias in the US Law Enforcement System.

FrankyG170
Murdoc

In the past decade the US Justice System has come under much scrutiny for bias against minority groups within the nation. Much of the rhetoric established in this discussion has been politically charged and is therefore heavily biased to one point of view. This debate is an attempt to debate without any influence of bias from said sources in order to arrive at a closer understanding to what is causing the current events in the Justice System. That is to say, we are hoping to find if there truly...
