Definitions: God - the creator of the universe, the earth particularly, and the earth"s inhabitants. Exist - to have...

Jesus Christ Doesn't Hate Homosexuals


Let me start by saying that I have seen a debate like this before, and when I read the topic i was happy to hear that the debate was happening, but grew disappointed when I saw that the person who held my position had poor conduct and declared himself victorious in the third round. This made it so very little real debating even happened. So I decided to hold another debate on the same topic. Let me start by saying that many people have the misconception that since the bible itself has rules a...

Veganism is a religion.


I don't understand how veganism can possibly be seen as a religion. I get veganism is a religion argument a lot when talking about vegan issues. In fact, whenever I mention vegan concepts Christians around me shift uncomfortably. Communicating to me non-verbally they tolerate it but warning me not to idolize it. This makes no sense to me. How can you idolize veganism? It is not even physical. Its not like its a different God or anything. There is no chanting nor worshiping. Neverthele...

God's existence


God is omnipotent. God is also omnipresent. God is omnipresent which means God lacks the ability to leave a room. If God lacks the ability to leave a room then God doesn't have all powers (omnipotent) and if God is not omnipotent then God, isn't God. Let's say for a second that God isn't omnipresent, and God is omnipotent then that'd make sense. Right? No, because if God has every power, God would be able to create an object that cannot be lifted up, then God cannot lift it. Therefore God...

The Gospel Accounts Are Anonymous


This debate is on the anonymity of the Gospel Accounts, being the Gospel of Mark, the Gospel of Matthew, the Gospel of Luke, and the Gospel of John, the four Graceo-Roman Biographies within the New Testament. I view that the traditional authorship of these four documents (that they were written by Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John) is historically factual. It is not about whether or not they are true in their theological claims, but simply whether or not these these four authors (the Apostles Matthe...

god doesn't exist


There is no evidence for god. Could god create a rock that he couldn't lift? If he COULD ,he can't lift something and isn't all-powerful. If he COULDN'T ,he can't make something and isn't all-powerful. And what god would make an Atheist ,knowing they aren't gonna believe (All-knowing) and then punish them for it....

The apostles, after preaching the first gospel sermon, converted and baptized thousands of people, saying, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:38). Consid...
