A God can not be omnipotent, omnibenevolent and omniscient

S2hannah
daley

This is a problem that I have spent a long time considering. I have come to the conclusion that it is not possible to say that there is a God who is all loving, all knowing and all able because of the existence of evil. This is often referred to as the rock of atheism and it has founded my entire attitude toward religion, mainly that attitude is that it is not something I can believe. I look forward to someone who can challenge this statement, and who will debate it openly with me without taking...

Questioning beliefs.

ClashnBoom
tejretics

Objectives: - Make your opponent's change their beliefs or prove that their belief is wrong. How it works: Okay so every round Pro and Con can ask three questions regarding every belief excluding political beliefs and the next round Pro and Con can post some follow up questions and argue that their opponent's belief is invalid or dumb Rules: No personal questions like do you believe that I'm your ugly? No cursing. No forfeiture. No personal attacks. You can only show up to 5 follow...

There is no objective basis for morality.

AGluttonousAscetic
Mike_10-4

I am posting a debate on this subject again because this is a subject that I am interested in and I am seeking thoughts and ideas on it. The last debates are here: http://www.debate.org/debates/There-is-no-objective-basis-for-morality./1/ http://www.debate.org/debates/There-is-no-objective-basis-for-morality./2/ My position is that an objective basis for morality has not been shown to exist; that judging or labeling an action as either moral or immoral is the result of individual belief,...

God Probably Exists

Rational_Thinker9119
Bscott84

God will be defined as the fundamental Mind that grounds everything else.... I will be arguing that God exists using some unconventional arguments, but I will not be arguing that this God is the God of any particular religion. For Con the first round will just be for acceptance....

Healthcare is a right.

YeshuaIsTheOneTrueGod
gizmo4me2

No need to introduce yourself, just jump right in. I will state why I believe that healthcare is a right. My reasons: People have the right to their bodies. People have the right to live, and without healthcare, life is not possible. If someone does not want to be sick or injured, they should not have to. It is wrong to force people to suffer....

God Probably Doesn't Exist.

n7
Envisage

I have picked the dark lord Envisage..I am creating this debate to test 2 new arguments that I'm not 100% sure about. One of them is partly original. Also because I haven't done a God debate in a while.Definitions:God: The sentient necessary eternal (has always existed and held his properties) omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent being that was the efficient cause of the contingent universe.Probably: Almost certainly; as far as one knows or can tell.

Life after Death

Dark_Energy
Surrealism

I will demonstrate that life after death is an inevitability. The person who accepts will believe that there is nothingness after death. This is a 4 round debate, with a 48 hour window to argue. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Arguments Round 3: Rebuttal Round 4: Summary Good luck. I hope we both come away learning something....

"Where there's a will, there's a way" is factually incorrect

Scratch
7Alan

This debate is impossible to accept. The burden of proof is on me to prove that "where there's a will, there's a way" is factually incorrect. ("To him that will, ways are not wanting" is the original wording, but I'm focusing on the modern definition)....
