Abortion. Yes or No?

alysonreid

Many religious families teach their children to not believe in abortion. Often, people believe that aborting a baby, kills it. But what about the children who are already born? The kids who were abandoned and left homeless because their mother couldn't take care of the child? What if they died just because they were forced to be born when the mother wasn't healthy enough? With protesters constantly trying to close abortion clinics, scenarios such as the ones I just listed are happening more and...

ban islam or kill all muslims are the only solution to the sickness of islams existence muslims are not immoral if they have no choice.. islam must be banned from all civilized nations, so that the curse of war becomes clear to muslims, as they will be forced to live in muslims countries or will have to convert to escape that horror prison.. islam is not a religion but a political way of creating a war with no end.. a religion is relied on, while islam is forced on people.. so without a ch...

Same-Sex Equality

Marriage isn't a privilege, it is a human right. Many protesters of gay couples say that 'God states in the bible that only man and woman should be together'. There's no proof God is real. And even if he was, there is NOTHING wrong with two people of the same gender being together. So, forget about your religion for a second and look at the real facts. Same-Sex couples are no different than hetero couples other than the fact they cannot reproduce with each other. Gay couples deser...

Beloved classic children's books being made into hollywood movies

Disclaimer: This is my first debate (on this website). I did a formal debate once at school, so I am aware that there are certain rules/etiquette, but otherwise I'm pretty clueless about how to go about this or how best to use this website. Anyway here goes... It saddens me when I hear that yet another famous classic children's book is being made into yet another hollywood blockbuster movie. It is a well-known and very evident fact that movies fall short (sometimes hard on their faces) wh...

Video Games are Sports

Kove_Ducote
akaRay

It is a controversial topic that sparks feuds from both sides of the coin; are video games really sports? However, many fail to note a plethora of points and concepts that more than confirm the idea that video games sports. The definition of sports, although varying with different diction and colloquialism across many textbooks, is "a game played either as recreation or competition." The argument is not semantics. Just as you can hunt game for sport, you can play video games as a sport. Wheth...

Why aren't Muslims going around terrified of hell?

CuriousFear

According to what "they know", it's beyond severe torment, the worst torture as described in the Qur'an. I know that someone might say because they are Muslim they do not go there, but it's meant to be Allah who decides at the "end of the days" lol Its also part of Islam that Muslims have am acceptance of Allah's decisions of whatever Allah chooses for them, whether it's happiness or suffering. I was raised to accept that I might go to hell. It's as if it's being taken as mythology rather than...
