It is up to theists to prove that god exists. No exceptions. None.

Until god waves his rosey red flag, he's a forgery. How can you prove something that is unproved and something that is unknown and something that has never been seen? What do you look for to prove this unknown commodity of non existence? Um no. Sorry. The burden of proof is always upon those who claim...

It is better to believe in the God of the Bible than to be an Atheist

DreamilyMidnightBlue

My position is as follows: If I believe in God and it turns out God did not exist then I don't have to face any accountability for my disbelief. If I am right that the Christian God does exist then eternal awards awaits me when I die and still do not have to face any accountability and do not have to face any judgment. If the atheist is right and there is no God and no afterlife then he or she will not have to face any accountability for not believing in God. Should the atheist be wrong he/s...

Assuming there is no god, morality is subjective and laws are unnecessary

MonochromeEffigy
onlytwin

As an atheist, I do not believe in a god. Since I don’t believe in a god, I don’t believe in any kind of objective morality. Since I don't believe in objective morality, I don't believe there‘s any purpose in having laws to enforce one morality over another. Con will need to prove either a) there is an objective morality that doesn't come from a god, or b) laws are necessary. Definitions: God...

JimShady
DebatableJesus

This debate is a death match between two equally skilled soldiers against each other. The Pro soldier has a MAC-10, and the Con soldier will have your gun of choice. Whoever has the better gun will win this shootout. Rules: 1. This is not a role-play. Our respective guns will be graded in certain categories, which include but are not limited to: range, firepower (RoF), versatility, damage, maneuverability, reload time, recoil, accuracy, and any other categories you would like to add. 2. G...

Fire Is Alive

thegibson
SJM

I will be arguing that fire is alive. If you accept, your job is to argue that fire is not alive. There is no burden of proof- both sides have to prove their point equally. For the purposes of this debate, the characteristics something needs to be alive are movement, respiration, sensitivity, growth, reproduction, excretion, and nutrition. For further definitions of these terms, see here: https://www.sciencelearn.org.nz/resources/14-characteristics-of-living-things First round is acceptanc...

Driving a car slow is better than driving it fast in city because people wander in city and driving fast may lead to accident.there are lot of speed brakers in the city and when a car comes fast and stops at a speed braker the car will get damaged and the person driving it would get major injuries.Driving slow is safety and accidents won't happen.On March month a professional racer of Chennai met with an accident because of rash driving. http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/racer-ashwin-sund...
