The existence of evil proves God must exist

jcj97
DarthVitiosus

I will prove that the existence of evil does not disprove God's existence, but rather proves that he does exist. My opponent will attempt to prove the contrary, that the existence of evil proves God does not exist. The definition of God used in this argument is a good, eternal, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent being. I would like to hear my opponent's definition of evil....

Life is a computer program

AverageJoe23
Thejackal

Life is a computer program. Everything we do is planned out by a computer developed by a sentient race using our thoughts and actions as entertainment. No matter what we do, no matter how many of us know, we are stuck in this program. It isn't even like the Matrix where we can bend the program for our own uses. Everything is planned out and there is nothing we can do....

Should students do their homework?

I feel like we should have homework in every class, " [homework] would allow you to learn more and it is just a better chance to understand things and take advantage of it," (Chute). Homework helps improve academic performance because it allows students to learn new skills, it is beneficial, and finally, it is influential. Students can learn many things from doing our homework, as well as improve on their skills. In this essay, it will talk about all of the pleasures of doing homework. First,...

Public schools should teach about world religions

Inquistive

World religions should be taught at public schools to widen students' knowledge about the world and other cultures. Teaching about religions worldwide would not be offensive as long as you include all of them and describe them accurately. The class could be offered as an elective and many students would be inclined to join as it may be interesting. Teaching about these religions would also foster a new understanding and appreciation. Take for example Islam. There are some people...

Make Abortion Illegal

sydneywasteney
annipillar

Put a Stop To Killing Off The Future In a study about three decades ago, "doctors were convinced that newborns" nervous systems were too immature to sense pain"" but that is not the case. Studies showed that babies can feel the pain (Paul). If doctors are making painful decisions like this one, what else could they be doing wrong? This is why all types of abortion should become illegal in Iowa because they put babies through pain, put mothers at risk, and abortions are taken advantage of. Babi...

Same-sex Marriage Should be Legalized

Edwar3je
dsjpk5

Just to make this clear, the main point of this debate will be to evaluate the merit of both sides' arguments. This debate isn't concerned with if the government can legalize same-sex marriage, it's only focused on the reasons for both the affirmative and negative sides of this debate. With that being said, the first round will be for acceptance, the second round will be for presenting arguments, and the final round will be for rebuttal. This debate will also use the following terms as guiding p...

Abortion

Emartens
DrizzyDrake

Abortion: The deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. Abortion should become illegal in Iowa with the exception of extreme cases. Which is going to be explained why in a couple of paragraphs. "It is a new frontier of the anti-abortion movement: laws banning abortion at 20 weeks after conception, contending that fetuses can feel pain then" (Belluck) It was proven in recent research that abortion is not as "harmless" as people ma...

However, if a moderately educate...
