Statist Anti-Catholic Egalitarians Are not Consistent for Following William of Ockham

Daktoria

This debate will focus on the Avignon Papacy and how William of Ockham, a Franciscan friar, was excommunicated unfairly in the 14th century by Pope John XXII who lived a lavish lifestyle. While William of Ockham was a devout Catholic who emphasized the virtue of poverty, it was this pope who reigned under extraordinary circumstances that he was punished. Furthermore, while William of Ockham was excommunicated himself, his philosophy was not condemned despite how he further insisted on separation...

The Illuminati no longer exists, and the rumours about the Illuminati are false.

SirMaximus
Burningsnow

Conspiracy theorists often assert that the Illuminati is evil, anti-Christian, trying to hide their symbol(s) in pop culture today, controls everyone in pop culture and media, or any combination of the above. As the Instigator, I am going to attempt to debunk these ideas. I believe the proposition that the rumours about the Illuminati are false, and the Illuminati no longer even exists. The Illuminati was formed in 1776, by Adam Weishaupt. Historians refer to the Illuminati that existed at th...

The Biblical Flood occurred

GOP
Envisage

Greetings, everyone. I hope and pray that we will have a good debate. My job here is to prove that the Biblical flood occurred. Con's job is to prove that it did NOT occur at ALL. He is supposed to do this by successfully refuting the proofs that I offer for the flood. He cannot offer contentions of his own. Just refutations. Rules:1. No resolution-snipers. I don't want somebody to come here...

An english curriculum that focuses on the classics is better than one which analyses modern films

Raucous
elixir

Yes films are better as they are modern and children today should be learning about the modern issues in our society not reading Shakespeare. Kids wont be Engadget or listening in class therefore might not learn as well. A child's brain is electronically driven and books will not get through, that is why films are better....

Continue the Story...

This isn't a debate, just a fun game of continuing the story. Basically I start with a few sentences/one sentence/ or maybe half a sentence and you continue it. You may make your part of the story as long as you want as long as it doesn't surpass the 500 word limit. You may end your part with a finished or unfinished sentence. Make it as silly as you can. The process then restarts. Here's the start of the story, have fun! I once lived in the Land of Oz but I had to move out because......

Atheism says there is no God, therefore it is not possible to win Pascal's Wager.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
medv4380

I would like an atheist to argue that it is possible to win Pascal's Wager and remain an atheist at the same time, but it seems to me that an atheist would not argue this way as it allows for the possibility that God is there and atheism excludes that possibility.. A non-atheist can argue this debate against my position. Please give a sample argument in the comments before I allow you to accept this challenge. If you need a dictionary to define words or if you need a web page link to define o...

Christianity offers false hope to the weak minded.

EvolvedConsciousness
TakingTheCake

I have come to form the opinion that although christianity can be seen as having morally acceptable foundations by today's societal standards, it has bred from these foundations a following that is afraid to question its outdated teachings for fear of being cast into eternal damnation by a vengeful god. I am willing to debate the validity of christian teachings/history with anyone by staying open minded to any rebuttal and only attempting to refute my opponents opinions using logic and respect ,...
