Catholics are correct when it comes to the Virgin Mary

Please note, that this debate is intended to be within the context of Christianity. Opponents will argue for or against Mary (Wife Joseph and Mother of Jesus as found in Christian teachings, traditions, and sacred scripture) having a high importance in the belief system. I am not requiring one to be Christian, or even religious. If you do take up the "con" position, please note I will be using proof texts, arguments, syllogisms, historical arguments, etc. that come from Christian (especially...

Does God Exist?

C_e_e
Lupricona

For a word to be added to the dictionary, its primary intentional reference has to be found by the editors. An intentional reference is simply what is intended to be referred to when people use a term; it is a more descriptive way to say the definition for a word. If I were in another country where I didn't know the language very well, and I heard an unfamiliar term, I would want for the dictionaries in that language to explain what is intended to be summarized by that word. Extension is the qua...

Is God timeless or does He experience endless time?

The traditional view suggests that God is strongly immutable, impassible, timeless, etc. Not all tradition is truth. I would suggest this view came later and is from Plato, Augustine, Aristotle, Aquinas, Boethius, etc. I would suggest that endless time (duration, sequence, succession) is Hebraic, biblical, coherent and will have implications for omniscience, foreknowledge, prayer, etc. Related issues of Einstein/relativity, etc. factor in, but are measures and perceptions of time the same as phi...

Is God timeless or does He experience endless time (new attempt)?

Since the last 'con' simply bashed the concept of God in one sentence, I am looking for a mature, informed person to try this debate again. Is there a way to not accept a debate from a spammer? The traditional view suggests that God is strongly immutable, impassible, timeless, etc. Not all tradition is truth. I would suggest this view came later and is from Plato, Augustine, Aristotle, Aquinas, Boethius, etc. I would suggest that endless time (duration, sequence, succession) is Hebraic, bibli...

Debate: Churches ought to pay taxes

Hayd

Full resolution: Churches ought to pay taxesThe debate is impossible to accept, apply in the comments if you are interested and I will send the challenge to the applicant of my choosing. First round is acceptance only. No new arguments in the final round. Kritiks aren't allowed. Taxes on churches would mean regular property taxes and commercial income taxes. Basically they lose their tax exempt status....

Religion - god may not exist

drewredli11
dwright

I believe that a higher power exists. I belive that we evolved from apes. (I belive in science and the theory of evolution.) I think that more proof has to be given to make the theory of "God" true. We need hard facts. Hard proof that something exists and that we didn't just come up with the religion of Christianity and God because we needed something to belive in times of hardship....
