Is the Kalam Cosmological Argument valid?

Logic-Bomb
ssadi

The Kalam Cosmological Argument has been used extensively by William Lane Craig. Many apologists have taken to this argument as a valid excuse to believe in god. I will demonstrate that this is not the case. The Kalam Cosmological Argument is logically fallacious, and while that doesn't disprove the existence of the god it argues for, it does disprove the claim based on Kalam. Round one will be for acceptance and definitions....

Do Science and Religion Clash? Prop will argue No, Opp will argue Yes.

NIGHTANDKNIGHT

Round 1 for acceptance and stating your points. Mine are: 1) They exist for different reasons 2) They can support each other 3) Any clash in the past was due to human interpretation and not religion or science themselves. Hope to have an interesting debate!...

Did Witches exist in the Middle/Dark Ages or were they just innocent humans?

7Clouds
Outplayz

Witches didn't/don't exist. Sadly. Many "witches" were most probably early scientists. They experiented, and the untaught eyes of people recognized the experiments as spells and curses. So, if these early scientists were called witches, that means that today's scientists are also witches....

Pascals wager

jakabus

I see your last debate about pascals wager did not go as intended. I was interested in the topic until I read your opponents opinions. So I would like to converse this topic with you. I will argue for pascals wager being theoretically acceptable. I read (and wish you would like to still hold your position against/con of the debate) that you think pascals wager is false or non-sensible. I hope you still wish to debate from your past position. The way I understand pascals wager is if a belie...

Round 1-Acceptance, Round 2-Cases, Round 3-Rebuttals, Round 4-Defense Materialism- a tendency to consider material possessions and physical comfort as more important than spiritual values.

If I travelled foward through time and killed myself would I be committing suicide or murder?

hyperjesus
firefury14620

I envision a court case in which a time traveller having travelled forward through time, has been witnessed killing himself/herself and now stands trial for murder. Scientists have established that indeed the killer has travelled through time and has killed his/her future self. The accused's defence team argue that the time traveller is innocent of murder and had merely committed suicide. Pro will argue from the stance of the prosecution, that it was murder. Con will take the stance that is...

Turkey built their country with blood and murder!

PonticGreekMacedonian
Scots_167

First off I am gonna say good luck to the person who chooses to be Con! I am Greek and my ancestors were victims of the Turks who burnt their Homes and Churches and killed their families! I am also obsessed with history so I know about the Turks in some degree! Also Turks committed a genocide against my ancestors and they deny the term Genocide when it was obvious that it was a Genocide, also they also committed a genocide against the Armenians and Assyrians!...

Pascal's Wager is true.

K.Risk
vi_spex

I am looking for an opposer who fully believes that Pascal's wager holds truth and is justifiable by the reasoning of finite and infinite gain or loss depending on the existence or non-existence of God. I was hoping for an opponent who will respectfully introduce me to a different perspective and respectfully debate me until the very end. I will be arguing that there are flaws with Pascal's wager and that his ideology of God's existence is irrelevant and false. I am looking for an opponent wh...
