Back in the first quarter of 2017, Intel launched it's seventh generation of i7 processors, some of the best performing processors of the year. The i7-7700k was being quite questionable, with temperatures up to 90 degrees Celsius on full load. It wasn't long until AMD launched their 1800x processor, coming close, if not equal to Intel's i7-6900k. Finally, the 2 big companies that had been chugging along, were getting competitive. Recently, there has come to light that the thermal paste und...

The universe needs a creator, therefore God exists

KostasT.1526
sengejuri

Hello In this debate the topic discussed is whether the universe requires a creator (or rather, a God) or not, on scientific and philosophical terms (mainly the former). Pro is to argue that it does need a creator, while I, Con, will argue that it does not. The burden of proof is therefore shared. ______________________________________________ Definitions: Universe [1]: [yoo-nuh-vurs] noun 1. the totality of known or supposed objects and phenomena throughout space; the cosmos; macroc...

It is better to believe in the God of the Bible than to be an Atheist

kwagga_la

My position is as follows: If I believe in God and it turns out God did not exist then I don't have to face any accountability for my disbelief. If I am right that the Christian God does exist then eternal awards awaits me when I die and still do not have to face any accountability and do not have to face any judgment. If the atheist is right and there is no God and no afterlife then he or she will not have to face any accountability for not believing in God. Should the atheist be wrong he/s...

Assuming there is no god, morality is subjective and laws are unnecessary

MonochromeEffigy
onlytwin

As an atheist, I do not believe in a god. Since I don’t believe in a god, I don’t believe in any kind of objective morality. Since I don't believe in objective morality, I don't believe there‘s any purpose in having laws to enforce one morality over another. Con will need to prove either a) there is an objective morality that doesn't come from a god, or b) laws are necessary. Definitions: God...

My gun (MAC-10) vs. your gun

JimShady
DebatableJesus

This debate is a death match between two equally skilled soldiers against each other. The Pro soldier has a MAC-10, and the Con soldier will have your gun of choice. Whoever has the better gun will win this shootout. Rules: 1. This is not a role-play. Our respective guns will be graded in certain categories, which include but are not limited to: range, firepower (RoF), versatility, damage, maneuverability, reload time, recoil, accuracy, and any other categories you would like to add. 2. G...

Fire Is Alive

thegibson
SJM

I will be arguing that fire is alive. If you accept, your job is to argue that fire is not alive. There is no burden of proof- both sides have to prove their point equally. For the purposes of this debate, the characteristics something needs to be alive are movement, respiration, sensitivity, growth, reproduction, excretion, and nutrition. For further definitions of these terms, see here: https://www.sciencelearn.org.nz/resources/14-characteristics-of-living-things First round is acceptanc...
