Is it Reasonable to Believe in a Creator?

iTruthSeeker
Reformist

Hello to everyone! Since I am a Christian, I normally hear people talk about how "it is unreasonable to believe in a creator of the universe". Otherwise known as "creationism", I'm up for a good thought provoking debate regarding this issue I will not be arguing for a "specific" creator (I.e Yahweh, Allah, etc..) but if it is in fact, reasonable to believe that the overall encompassing definition of God: ( "the Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped...

Pandavas were the rightful heirs to the throne of Hastinapur

Hello!Through this debate, I wish to challenge the highly decorated belief that the Pandavas were the rightful heirs to the throne of Hastinapur. I am of the opinion that the Kauravas instead were the ones who deserved to rule the throne.It is my simple argument that once you renounce any power/authority/status, you lose all rights to command any sort of control over it. Building on the aforementioned argument, I believe that when Pandu r...

The Universe is deterministic

condeelmaster

I really want to discuss about this because I'm not sure of my opinion. I think that the universe must be deterministic because of its excellent design and for the limits that existence itself has. However, if this is true, it means that we will never be free, which is really upsetting hahaha. To clarify some points: * It would be interesting to focus on the metaphysical implicancies of this issue and the relation with free will, religions, time-space composition and future prediction....

Creationism and Evolution are BOTH right.

Now here me out; For over 150+ years, Creationist and Evolutionist have bitterly argued with each other over which philosophy is right. Creationist believe in an all-mighty god who made everything. Evolutionist believe that we as a human race and as life itself evolved from lower life forms. Each side has their strengths and flaws. I myself used to be a heavy believer in the Evolution side. However, I have began to rethink my philosophy. Its always been a matter of black or white in this long...

Is God really the god guy and the Devil the bad guy, or vice versa?

Round 1: Debater's views Round 2: Why we believe our positions Round 3:Final arguments Hello, I am looking for a casual debate about religion, specifically Christianity, and philosophy. Ever since I thought about it when I was a child, I have been bugged by an extremely deep question about God and Satan. What if the bible was a lie and simply propaganda. God was actually evil and the Devil was actually the good guy who has been framed? I am looking for a casual debate with someone and I wou...

World's deviation

BakaliarosJrJr
condeelmaster

My point is that human mind has created some things, which have now become institutions, that are completely useless, but they attract the attention of most people. I'm talking about religions, more-than-one languages and words for each meaning, agnosticism and, many times, history (I have met people in my country that accept edited forms of the history of my nation, that would seem totally ridiculus to people from abroad). I think that, in today's conditions, the only way to learn and understa...

Life is filled with purpose.

Pro will have to provide something that, in the wide view of things... and stuff... timey-wimey... whatnot, has purpose. First round is acceptance. Purpose: meaningful for all of time, never to be considered obsolete or unneeded. An influence that will last until the end of time, defined by whatever world-view you deem appropriate. Thank you, and good luck! Assuming you want to succeed. Which you very well may not. In which case, very poor luck to you!...

Grasp that the reality we see exists only in our mind. When we see a tree, we are seeing an image created by our mind as a result of light waves being captured by our retina, which sends electrical impulses to our occipital loabs via the optic nerve. In Reality, trees are not brown and leaves are not green. They merely reflect light waves of differing frequencies....
