TIME CONSTANCY = PROOF of GOD

Purushadasa
ambivalent

Preamble: Time continues moving forward at a constant rate no matter what we do: But why? Formal Argument: P1: Without God, there could be no concrete basis for time constancy. (There is nothing in existence other than God that could ensure time constancy. The only way to successfully refute this Premise would be to posit some entity other than God that could somehow ensure time constancy -- and then demonstrate that such a posited entity actually does ensure time constancy)....

Israel has no choice

The full text of the resolution is "Although Israel's position in the West Bank is mutually undesirable for Israel and Palestinians, Israel has no choice in the matter, because there are no reasonable alternatives." Cons job will be to suggest an alternative solution that does not increase the risk of harm to Israel, Israeli citizens, or the Jewish People. This debates definition of unreasonable includes, but is not limited to, anything that results in that. My opening points assume three opt...

Race, genes, IQ

Chuck11
kweef

Last year my brother called me a "racist" for pointing out that genes could mediate some of the US racial achievement gap, so, being a neurotic, I spend a number of months digging through the data and outlining the idea. (http://abc102.wordpress.com/) "Race, genes, and disparity." I found the idea to be plausible, but the evidence, while trending to support a partial genetic hypothesis, equivocal -- anyways, I'm looking for someone to debate the issue. The stipulation is that they read through s...

Gambling for Muslims in Vea

matrixsurvivor
Korashk

I was reading this article about Gambling for Muslims: http://www.gamblingplanet.org/az-zahr-and_mahjong_tradition_makes_gamblers I have been in Vegas during Christmas and saw many Arabs (and I assume some were Muslims) gambling. A friend of mine from Morocco actually said US should not allow Muslims in our casinos. Now I wonder...should we really do that? And how? Stop every one with a passport from a Muslim country? I don't think so......

Atheism is more of a religion than Christianity

republican1021
Koopin

In my humble opinion, I observe atheism to be more of a 'religion' than Christianity. Before I go any further, I will define what religion is. Religion is "a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects." I, as a Christian, do not like the word 'religion'. Religion is man-made; and Christianity is not a religion, rather a relationship with Jesus Christ. The reason I say atheism is more of a religion than Christianity is that it tak...

Are Christians the real anti-christ?

mj62509
wonderwoman

Why do I ask this? Jesus never judged people, he never talked down to people, never left someone out because of who they were or what social circle they belonged too. He loved everyone as equals. Did all he could to help people who needed help. Gave a hand to those who needed it, and tried to help those in need. Unlike modern day Christians. Who do nothing but pass judgment. Ignore those in need of a simple hand. Or thought down on those that don't read from the same novel they read from....
