Free Will is Impossible in a Linear Universe Caused by an Omniscient God

LughHeim
Perussi

It would seem to me that the second you introduce a 'God' that created humans and is omnipotent/omniscient, you instantaneously rid yourself of the concept of free will. Being that such a God can literally never be surprised and knows the outcome of every single action, that would mean we live in a linear universe. What I mean by a linear universe is one that has no suprises, one that could, if using advanced enough math, could be completely predicted from beginning to end. This would of cours...

The Words"Under God" Should be Removed from the Pledge of Allegiance

Emperor_Edward
John_C_1812

"No child should go to school each day to have the class declare that her religious beliefs are wrong in an exercise that portrays her and her family as less patriotic than believers." -David Niose, president of the American Humanist Association Back then, we were a nation full of white and Christian people, we were that same nation who added "under God" to show that we were different from the Soviet Union. But now, it is not the same. America is a changing country; a melting pot of peo...

Jesus is not "the" Son of God - we all are.

Nexistential
TheMagi

Here I argue that Yeshua (Jesus) of the Holy Bible is not the only Son of God. Different gospels were written at different times after the death of Yeshua. I say this to say that the assumption that this claim relies upon is that the closer to the death of Yeshua they were written, the more reliable the Gospels are...

Does God exist?

QuantumAchilles
Thiest_1998

Since you deny that the big bang took place and looking at your profile photo and username, I thought it would be fun to begin a debate on the existence of God, to see just how well you can defend your theology. I will be using physics, history and philosophy to proof that God is not real, hopefully by the end of this discussion, either I will make you an atheist or perhaps, you might make me a believer! Because I assume that you are christian, our debate will focus specifically in proving/denyi...

God as a Biblical Figure is Evil

Castaway
JohnDoe360

God, as a figure in the Bible, is clearly an evil figure by any reasonable form of morality. This is a figure that genocides entire people, a figure that created man knowing they would sin and setting it up so they would fail, supports slavery and supports the killing of people for minor offenses that aren't even wrong like gay sex. This is a figure who is clearly evil. To begin, he is a mass murderer. Many a time, God has wiped out entire people. The whole world during the time of Noah, the...

I don't need to prove your religion is false you need to prove it is true.

I have no reason to believe that your god is real. There are so many different gods, and its not possible for all of them to be real but it is possible for none of them to be. faith is not a reason it is the suspension of reason so belief can be preserved. I'm asking for clear evidence for the existence of god because if you want others to believe your radical claims you require radical evidence. Bertrand Russell's teapot analogy illustrates this argument very well and it goes as follows "If...

Axioms within this debate: 1. "God" within this debate is defined as "Yahweh as described in the Christian bible". 2. "exists" within this debate is defined as "has an effect on reality". 3.
