Can God create a rock so big he can't lift it, or can he not create the rock? answer is yes...

Can an Omnipotent God create a rock he cannot lift? it is said that If one answers yes to the question, then God is therefore not omnipotent because he cannot lift the rock, but if one answers no to the question, God is no longer omnipotent because he cannot create the rock. my position is that he can do one or the other, at different times, but he can't do both at the same time. and, that he can't do both at the same time doesn't disprove God as omnipotent. the question is basically anot...

Abortion is Immoral

Hello, this is a debate about the morality of abortion (not whether it should be legalized/banned). I am new to the website, so I am hoping that this is the correct format to frame the debate. If not, please feel free to correct me :) My position is that abortion is a strictly immoral action, as when a woman consents to have an abortion, and a doctor carries the procedure out, they are directly causing the death of a human being. Abortion is a very complex issue, as women who seek abort...

Those Who Take Selfies (Just By Themselves) Are Ego-Maniacs

FrEeMaSoN1692
briauna

Noun 1. egomaniac - an abnormally egotistical person egoist, egotist, swellhead - a conceited and self-centered person http://www.thefreedictionary.com/egomaniac Since I have established the meaning of what an ego-maniac is, I will say that selfies are the dirt of society. They are within the same category as reality tv shows and pornography (I'll admit that I do watch pornography). If people aren't ego-maniacs, then they wouldn't need to have things like Facebook and Twitter. They say th...

advanced hominid decendants should be valued above homo sapiens when expanding into the universe

dairygirl4u2c

advanced hominid decendants should be valued above homo sapiens in expanding into the universe eventually man will have to expand off of earth, or we will go extinct. wouldnt it be wise to allow first the most advanced of us to leave and expand civilization? this very well could (and perhaps should) eventually lead to hominid speciation. we could have a loyalist approach to it, and argue that our species should be of higher priority than allowing or promoting our decendants to be of sup...

The importance of science and religion

Gabriel7159
junior_dominator

Which has benefited mankind more? Religion or science? Many would agree that science has due to the fact that religion has spawned wars and disagreements across the globe when we can all agree on science because it is a common ground for curiosity among everyone. But...where would science be without religion? Without religion, most scientific studies over the years would have nothing to argue with, thus replacing faith with more theories and even more questions with no answers. This would eventu...

Romantic infidelity is not necessarily immoral.

countzander
TheBunnyAssassin

The claim is that romantic infidelity is not necessarily immoral. Under certain circumstances, there is nothing inherently wrong with cheating on one's partner. I, the instigator, will provide evidence confirming this claim. The contender will attempt to refute the claim by responding to the presented evidence. The first round is for acceptance. The second and third rounds are for debate. The fourth round is for closing statements....
