The Pope is the Antichrist.

As much as I'd hate to be blatant and even considerably rude to some, I will be arguing that the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church is the Antichrist that the Bible speaks of. I've made this debate impossible to accept, so if you are interested in arguing that the Pope is NOT the anti-Christ, then the following must apply: 1) The Con is a Christian, (preferably Catholic, but not required) 2) The Con believes the Bible cover to cover, Sola Scriptura There are four rounds, first is acceptan...

Pascal's Wager is not a convincing reason to believe in the Judeo-Christian God.

I will be arguing that Pascal's Wager is not a convincing reason to believe in the Judeo-Christian God. I will be discussing the calculus involved with the wager, characterizations of the Judeo-Christian God, and results of belief based upon the wager. Pascal's Wager, for this round, shall be characterized as the argument that because belief in God holds infinitely good consequences (i.e. Heaven), and disbelief has very bad consequences (i.e. Hell), you should believe in Go...

An atheist President would be okay

I am redoing this debate because my last opponent forfeited. For this debate, we're going to be talking about an atheist who is not anti-religion or an extremist. You can't use any arguments like "They would outlaw religion/destroy freedom of religion," maybe "They would shove their beliefs onto the nation," or "It's against the pledge." All of these are either slippery slope or just stupid arguments. Setup:Round 1- AcceptanceRound 2- Arguments/Rebuttals
