I would love to have a structured debate on our future president. Please no trolls....

Does the bible say hell is eternal torture/torment?

Jnaejnae
DBPDX

I have seen countless Christians, who claim hell to be a place where you are "tortured forever". I've looked in the bible for where is says this, and what I found is what seems to be a misunderstood idea. The bible describes hell to be an everlasting lake of burning sulfur, where you meet the second death in torment, As an everlasting punishment. The misunderstanding here, is that ceasing to exist can also be accurately described, as an everlasting punishment. The act of dying in the second deat...

For however cute they are, Axolotls are pretty intimidating debaters.I would ask Max not to accept until the afternoon of Feb 28th. Because this is a...

That we should abolish the death penalty

leachyaus
SonicAndRapBattles

My argument will rest on two premises. Firstly that the death penalty doesn't work as a deterrent and secondly that its too immoral to use even if it did. I will use this first speech to outline the former and my second speech to explain the latter. To assume the death penalty will deter anyone assumes they are thinking rationally which most who people who commit serious crimes often are not. Broadly people who commit violent crimes can be grouped into four categories. Those who act in the he...

Animal testing is wrong and needs to be put to an end. It is only killing innocent animals while getting us nowhere in finding cures and vaccines. You're ignorant if you think otherwise. "Humans are the only hunters that kill when they aren't hungry."...
