How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
starhammer

THIS DEBATE IS ONLY FOR AN ATHEIST. IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT THESE ATHEISTS KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET NOT ONE HAS ANSWERED MY Q. Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and...

Relationships Are Pointless

Sara_Hayes0825
Sovcody2

Relationships are pointless. In the end, it's only me. I'm going to die alone. Relationships just make things more difficult. I don't want to spend my life catering to someone. I don't want to be accustomed to someone else's lifestyle. Plus, when it's my time to die, being in a relationship with someone will make it harder. I don't want to put myself down and be sad because I'm going to miss that person (which I would). I want to reflect on my life with the time I had left. I want to die with re...

Theory of evolution is valid

Spud
xxmanguyxx

I'm bored so starting a debate on this topic. Basically, if you are of the opinion that "macroevolution" is not feasible, then this is the debate for you. Evolution is defined as the change of allele frequencies over successive generations, and the subsequent diversification of life due to various factors. If you want to make a case for a different definition for evolution, go for it, but know that if you use "kinds" to classify populations of organisms in your definition of evolution, I w...

Should state grounds allow monuments of a religious nature?

inszel
RonPaulConservative

Following the placement and later removal of the ten commandments in Oklahoma (2015) the question has been raised on whether or not such monuments should be allowed. In my view i see no issue with letting groups show their monuments upon state ground, until we get to the main point. That being that ANY religious group may do so, under the understanding that America is a secular nation and has separation from church and state. Thus such monuments would logically far out number the amount of space...

The Bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ Historically Occurred

divergent_ambon
Lupricona

First Round is acceptance, treating first round as anything but acceptance is a forfeit. Read all instructions for pre-acceptance requirements. Last opponent did not and garnered an automatic forfeit. I've made this debate impossible to accept to begin with, but this is a reiteration.This debate is over whether Jesus, a Judean individual in the first century, rose from the de...
