Is the existence of God rational?

Dhides3
InSparksweTrust

(The arguments presented are directly from or slightly adapted versions of Dr. William Lane Craigs' arguments presented in his book, On Guard). Although we admit that there are many fideistic believers, holding to Christian values is reasonable, logical, and absolutely necessary. According to Surrendra Gangadean, in his book Philosophical Foundations, at the most basic level, the need for an eternal is essential to our existence and meaning. With that in mind, Christians who have a secure fo...

Should Abortion be legal?

TouchtheSky
Eric567

The motion will be this: This house holds that abortion should be made legal, and women should have the right to abort their baby without being prosecuted for doing so. I will be arguing 'con', and whoever accepts this will be arguing 'pro'. ARGUMENT 1: A CHILD'S LIFE BEGINS WITH CONCEPTION, AND THEREFORE TO ABORT THE CHILD WOULD BE TAKING THEIR LIFE. I'll examine this by first trying to prove that a child's birth begins at conception. To begin with, let's look at several definitions...

Ethics Is More Important Than Science

NerdiestNerder
PinkSheep123

Ethics versus science? Which is more important? Personally, I think that the ethic side is more important than scientific discoveries, as I personally have never heard of a productive civilization that does not have ethics. However, I would love to see someone who disagrees!

Abortion? (anti = is bad)

ShadowCorbin
zekromthepokemon

No matter what the circumstance, unless the mother and baby will die, abortion is bad, and if you are religious it is even worse. If you are raped or incest has occured what happened is horrible, everyone agrees, but the baby did nothing wrong, and it doesn't deserve death. There is no greater love than to give thy life for a friend. Many people who are pro choice, even and especially people that have children say they would give their life for their kids, and I agree they should, but then I ask...

Belief without sufficient evidence is harmful

Wizofoz
Nicholaspanda

Many people have an array of beliefs, often believed because of "intuition", "contemplation" or because they have been presented with claims that are emotionally attractive, but that they lack sufficient skills in critical thinking to reasonably evaluate the reasonableness of these beliefs. Some of these are overtly harmful. Belief in "Bretharianism"- the ridiculous belief that the body can be sustained by air alone- has led to deaths and people seriously damaging their health because of this...
