islam is a religion of violence

dairygirl4u2c

this debate focuses on nonbelievers, not things such as stoning sinners. if you included this stuff, it'd be even more violent. "The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter."...

An omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient god, and free will can't coincide.

Sage13
GoOrDin

If God is all powerful, and all knowing then he can never be faced with a dilemma. With his foreknowledge he can never be faced with a surprise. Everything that happens could only happen with his approval. This implies that you could never do anything against God's will because if it is against his will, and he know what the act you did was he could stop it. If he did not stop it it can only be because he wanted it to happen because God can't be faced with a situation in which he is either again...

Since the re-establishment of Israel one claim from the Islamic (namely Palestinian) community is that Jerusalem is in fact their Holy City, and that it's the place Muhammad descended to heaven from. Such claims are baseless for the following reasons that I will outline in my opening argument. Con must be able to argue my statement(s) and provide supported examples of Jerusalem being an Islamic Holy Capital. First round acceptance....

Christian God Paradox

LogicWizard
suzyy97

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then He is not omnipotent. Is He able, but not willing? Then He is malevolent. Is He both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is He neither able nor willing? Then why call Him God?" -Epicurus Since I first read this quote, I could not find a fault in it, so I would like "Con" to prove that god is indeed omnipotent and is not malevolent, or to sufficiently disprove another part of the quote. BoP is on Con, he/she must prove a fault in th...
