from a christian perspective, people who are unrepentant, and know they are wrong, should be forgive

from a christian perspective, people who are unrepentant, and know they are wrong, should be forgiven should this be the case? it is common for people, including christians, to assume that it is automatic, that we must forgive everyone, automatically. but if you do a little research on it, the answer is not so clear. in my research, it seems most reputable scholars say you do not have to forgive, and some even say it's wrong to do. it is usually fluffy do good perspectives that just say fo...

rush limbaugh listeners are objectively less informed than other talk radio listeners "Didiots-Limbaugh's Legion of Fans Now, am I saying that dittoheads are ignoramuses? No. I don't need to. Listen to Kathleen Hall Jamieson of the Annenberg School for Communications at the University of Pennsylvania: We just concluded a study of 360 people, whom we watched watch the health care reform debate for nine months. And at the end of that period, we took the people who said they relied on talk r...

The Christian God was not justified in instrumenting mass-killings in the Old Testament.

1st round is for acceptance. I've made this debate impossible to accept, so comment if you would like to accept it. The Bible documents numerous accounts where the Christian God caused, ordered, and/or instrumented mass-killings and essentially genocides. My position will attempt to prove that these instances were unjustified while Con's position should be that every single one of them is justified. Definition of justified: Having, done for, or marked by a good or legitimate reason. ht...

Oppressive government is more desirable than no government.

jackh4mm3r

This is a "Lincoln-Douglas" debate; each opponent must have a value and criterion, followed by contentions. Round One is for acceptance and declaring which side you would like to debate: 'oppressive government' or 'no government.' Please excuse the side debate.org has declared I am; it would not let me proceed with the debate without picking a side. Round Two is for opening arguments only. Round Three is for rebuttals and strengthening your case. Next, Round 4 consists of more rebuttals. And fin...

Obama should be impeached

Obama simply has to be the worst president the United states has ever seen, Clinton and Nixon were both impeached for lying, but don't we as humans all make mistakes? Looking at Obama, we see he has driven the economy in the dirt even after we thought it couldn't get any worse after George W. Bush's reign. Wouldn't it seem logical to impeach a president that has thrown this country into a massive recession, and given the USA a bad name? I strongly believe there should be a ballot immediately for...

"Reality Is Mental" Is A More Rational Proposition Than Its Negation

Rational_Thinker9119
KhalifV

The burden of proof will be shared. I must show that Monistic Idealism is more rational than the view that there is a non-mental aspect of reality (such as Dualism or Physicalism). My opponent must show that it is more rational to believe in a non-mental aspect of reality than Monistic Idealism. The first round is just for acceptance. Good luck :) ...
