Does God exist?

nwarth
Champybeat

Hi all, my first debate back here in almost ten years! I look forward to returning and hope to get some excellent competition and and good discussion going. I'm looking for someone to debate the notion as to whether God exists! Obviously this is a bit difficult for me to go first, as what, exactly, "God" is has to be developed by the pro side. Additionally, as Bertrand Russell argued, the person making an affirmative claim is the one who bears the burden of proof. If I were to say, to use Rus...

Does God exist?

emsiblook
K.Cross12

I used about 5000 characters in my first round on my last debate so I'm going to try to be a bit less intimidating this time. I don't think that God exists. I used to be a Christian but now, I just think, there's no evidence, how can I just blindly believe in a God? We can never truly know if a God exists, but evidence would help, and there's no reason for me to believe it otherwise. I need you to believe that God does exist, for you to debate me on this....

Should each safe country accept more refugees?

Phoeni

Good luck to my opponent. I believe that each safe country should not accept more refugees as they have transformed the society in which tbey migrate to instead of settling and assimilating into their societies. An example is Germany, where Islam is starting to slowly become a growing religion due to the immense ridiculous amounts of refugees that had been taken in. Not only had societies been changed due to the results of acceping refugees, but there have been increases in crime from migrants a...

I think that the Cleveland Browns will finish the 2017-2018 NFL season with an 0-16 season record. They have one of the worst offenses and defenses in the league. They make a lot of costly mistakes that cause them to lose more games. Thank you for accepting this debate....

Generalist approach > Specialist approach

VAGNETTO
Skept

Is it better to be a specialist in a particular field, or a generalist, that knows alot of things, but lacks the depth in any field? I assume, that being a specialist means having a very narrow scope of practical and background knowledge, which is of no help in everyday life. Plus it's really tough to start something over, when you've dedicated your whole life doing one particular thing. Generalists, on the contrary, ha...

Estate Tax

TheLiberalSquirrel

One of the big issues of Trump's tax reforms is the repealing of the Estate Tax. I find it hard to support a tax cut that only effects 0.2% of people, and I'm interested to hear the other side of it. I'll let the opponent begin!...
