WW3 will be fought over Water and Religion

grammynumnums
SS1105

Canada has 20% of the worlds water and has 0.01% of the worlds population, a lot of countries will come for the water and they will not be nice about it either, and do you think Canada is just going to let them take it? of course not. And as for Religion a lot of people are getting killed for being Christians in different countries and eventually something is going to trigger a commotion. and if that does not start a war than the tension between Islam's and the Muslims is pretty bad because o...

scientifically inexplicable happenings occur that appear supernatural but almost never to atheists

linate
SimpleObserverofThings

scientifically inexplicable, apparently supernatural things occur, but not to atheists. these are apparent miracles. please show something that happened to an atheist, that would have been called an apparent miracle had it happened to a religous person, because of its scientifically inexplicable nature. no semantics pleas note: i am not accepting examples of miracles that happen to atheists who then convert. what are thought of as miraculous events are heavily documented and readily a...

The Biblical account of Noah's Ark is false.

SirMaximus
BrianCBiggs

In this debate, I take the affirmative position, or the pro/for position: I hold the viewpoint that the story of Noah's Ark, as described in Genesis 6-9 in the Bible, is false. First of all, there are millions of animal species that exist. They would not have fit in the ark, even if there were only 2 of each. There couldn't be 2 of each "kind" of animal, because then we couldn't get all the species there are today. Secondly, the story of Noah's Ark isn't even consistent. Genesis 6:19-20 s...

it is the most reasonable interpretation of the bible to say that some nonchristians can be saved

linate
IAmThatIAm

it is the most reasonable interpretation of the bible to say that some nonchristians can be saved there are four major points in the bible that i can think of regarding salvation of nonchristians. one is around John 3:16 where it says something to the effect of... "for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him shall not parish, but have ever lasting life. for God did not send his son to condemn the world, but that that world should be saved t...

from an official capacity, the roman catholic church has never contradicted itself

linate
Samuel60

in this debate, i am not counting the issues of limbo, or "no salvation outside the catholic church". (to be sure, there are plausible arguments about how those do not involve contradictions in teachings, but that's better left for another debate) you would think if the catholic church were not true, that it would have contradicted itself at some point in two thousand years. the only things that count are statements that are authoritative, things that could be considerted "infallible". the...

RESOLVED: Christianity is Beneficial to the Individual Man

LogicalLunatic
Kc1999

At the last second my opponent in the Tournament contacted me on DDO, with an idea for a topic. I would prefer to debate something else, but as this is pretty much the last second...okay. This is what we will debate. I'm assuming that since my opponent contacted me on this Site, he wants for the Debate to take place on this Site. I hope that this doesn't violate any rules. So, without any further delay... First Round is for Acceptance. Burden of Proof is on Pro, though I usually prefer to sh...

Christian Doctrine is correct

bluesteel
GodChoosesLife

First Round is for acceptance only. Christian Doctrine includes: a belief in the Trinity -- that Jesus, God, and the Holy Ghost are the same; the requirement that a belief in Jesus in a precondition to being admitted to Heaven; a belief that all non-believers go to Hell; a belief that the Bible is the true and inerrant word of God; a belief that premarital sex is morally impermissible; a belief that God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omnibenevolent; a belief that abortion is morally impermis...

required threshhold of faith required for Christians to be saved is not clear

linate
lefillegal1

required threshhold of faith required for Christians to be saved is not clear the requirements are either too vague, or too listy/dogmatic. the bible says if you confess with your mouth jesus is lord, and beleive in your heart that he was raised from the dead you will be saved. it also say if you believe in the lord you will be saved. it also has all kinds of other statements. i'm sure if you do these, that is sufficient. but what about various other scenarios, like the content of 'sinner...

Logical Absolutes Did not originate from humans

squirtdonthurt
Cognitive_Consonance

simple rules My stance is that Logical Absolutes did not come from or could have been created By humans I am not stating,( at least not at this point,) where I believe it came from.... though we may get into that in the debate. Round 1 through 4 argument and rebuttals in any fashion you choose. At the end of each round must contain a direct question for opponent to answer Round 5 rebuttals and Closing arguments. This is a casual formal debate not looking for a debate with thousands of...
