Madaan
Burls

i say god does exist but my perception of god is a bit different . god is not a person . god can not be personified . its just a sort of vibration . so to see the god as a person seems completely wrong. on one side you say that god has unlimited powers and on the other hand u put restriction by personifying the god....

Abortion is Morally okay

kip.mock
Commondebator

To my opponent: Please keep this respectful and calm. I don't want to offend anyone, my goal is to understand your position more thoroughly...that said, let's go. My position on abortion is that it is morally wrong. I'd like to start by addressing a few common arguments made by pro-choicers. 1. We're pro-choice, not pro-death. Basically, we're in favor of everyone deciding for themselves rather than there being a strict definition of what you can and can't do. a) I'm not saying you ha...

General Relativity Implies that God does not Exist

Miles_Donahue
Sargon

For some time, Sargon has contended that general relativity supplies an argument for atheism; that is to say, implies that God does not exist. Him and I have debated this issue else where, and I am more convinced than ever that general relativity implies no such thing. But for the convenience of DDO users, a debate here would be helpful. First round is for Sargon to present his argument as Pro. For an equal number of rounds, Sargon will not be posting a reply on round four. Plagiarism...
