Do we have free will? or what is free will?

JeffCline
Henceforth_Truth

I am a Christian and would like to debate another Christian on Free will. The reason why debating another Christian is because I would like to learn what free will truly is. You see if we had free will how is God then still in control of everything? Take it this way God knows when we will die right? Well then doesn't God know how we will die. He does. Now say I was suppose to get murdered tomorrow by a person. Would it be correct to say the one who murdered me had free will to do so or would it...

If rainbows are real, so is the person looking back at you in a mirror. They are illusions created by refraction of sunlight in raindrops....

Gay Marriage (U.S.A)

WDJax
Vladimirova

While a good amount of states already legalized Gay/Lesbian marriage, most of the United States has not done so. Why? What legal grounds are against gay marriage? Many argue that it's immoral because the Bible/Koran/(Insert Religious book here) says so, but America has established a separation of Church & State. "Moral" reasons have no say in a topic that touches legality. Also, me, myself I don't see homosexual couples or homosexual people as bad. Also, with the stigma of homosexuals being m...

I will be arguing that there is a high probability that aliens of the type I've described above exist in this Universe. Anyone willing to argue that aliens probably don't exist in our Universe, feel fre...

I think that football is worth the risk because football can prepare you for your future. Football will teach you how to do a body check to make sure you are safe. In addition, you get exersise, have fun, feel you are on a team, and also get better at at the sport itself. Therefore, I think that football is worth the risk....

War Game Scenario: Serbia(pro) versus Croatia (Con)

Russia_The_almighty
Luharis

This is a war debate that you probably did not see coming. Croatia vs. Serbia. I only made this since I found out Serbia has a navy despite being landlocked. It is impossible to accept this debate. If you want to accept, please send me a PM. If you somehow find a way to accept this debate, you will automatically forfeit the complete 7 points. You tell me why I should choose you to be my opponent; give me a very good reason as to why you want to do this debate and why you would be a worthy oppone...

It is likely that a God or gods exist

orangutan
tejretics

Is it likely that a God or gods exist? I am not interested in a semantic debate. By God or gods, I do not refer to a specific monotheistic Judeo-Christian conception of God. Rather, I use a more general, commonplace definition in which gods are either supernatural creators of the universe or even simply supernatural entities that are responsible for a specific aspect of the universe (for example, Poseidon is the god of the ocean, or Mars is the god of war). That is not to say that God cannot...
