The Christian God was not justified in instrumenting mass-killings in the Old Testament.

1st round is for acceptance. I've made this debate impossible to accept, so comment if you would like to accept it. The Bible documents numerous accounts where the Christian God caused, ordered, and/or instrumented mass-killings and essentially genocides. My position will attempt to prove that these instances were unjustified while Con's position should be that every single one of them is justified. Definition of justified: Having, done for, or marked by a good or legitimate reason. ht...

All Jews are not Israelis

secretam

Some people believe that all Jews are Israelis. I may not be a Jew nor an Israeli, but I do believe the terms are different. If you call yourself a Muslim, does that mean you are an Arabian? No, it means that you believe in Islam. If you call yourself a Hindu, does that mean you are Indian? No, it means that you believe in Hinduism. If you call yourself Christian, does that mean you are a Greek (as Greece has the highest percentage of the population which is Christian)? No, it means that you bel...

Does good and evil exist?/Examining scenarios to prove statement

Kai_Piranha
FMAlchemist

This is my first debate, and I decided to start with the topic of whether good and evil exist, using a certain scenario as a jumping point. I am arguing that good and evil do exist. The scenario that I would like to present is the following: If I was talking to someone about something trivial and then suddenly took a gun and shot the person in the head because I felt like it (and for no other reason; the conversation had nothing to do with it), this would be considered evil because I woul...

HINDI should not be used in India for its development.

gsairam
Atheist-Independent

Hindi might be the official language or national language of India but my question is why Hindi when we use 90 % only English in almost all the various industries , companies, etc . W use the UK English text in most of the daily life and moreover English is regarded as the global language but still Hindi is our national language. Why? if you say that's because most states of India speak Hindi then I believe there are 10 times more people in India who speak English. now the world calls for...

The Hunger Games games Adaption was better than Divergent

ruthpumarejo
AbbyH

(ONLY THE MOVIE) The Hunger Games was better than Divergent! 1. The characters actually have fun. The Hunger Games is really one long relentless slog through war, misery, poverty, and celibacy. Katniss and Peeta go from their bleak, gray home to the hellscape of the Arena, with a quick stop in the Capitol to feel horrified by and superior to its partying, colorful denizens. When Tris leaves her gray but kind of happy home to run with the wild boys and girls of Dauntless, you can feel her thril...
