I should be a Sikh

harrytruman
talmid

I have to address this, Talmid thinks that all non-Jews are going to hell, so I have a question for him; Is that in Judaism? Talmid acts as if it is in this debate: http://www.debate.org/debates/Is-Jesus-the-Messiah/1/ As we know, I admitted that I was wrong about Christianity in this debate for the following reason: I like not to think of myself as a hypocrite, if this is so, and with Muslims I would advise them to ditch Islam because of this moral fallacy, then I cannot remain a Christian...

Parents Should Tell Their Children About Every Different Religion Instead of Indoctrinating Them

trying2think
minddrag

In every society, parents should not indoctrinate their children with absolute statements about God, the origin of the universe, or any of the other big questions. Parents should explain the differences between different religions and ideologies. Then they should allow their children to decide for themselves what to believe or reject. If you believe parents should bring up their children to believe a certain way without telling them about alternatives, I would love to debate you. Tha...

Nothing suggests there must be a God

Bound_Up
PHlLOSOPHER

Let the respondent define "God" as they believe in him/her/it. For example, if for you "God" = "an omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient being of love and creation," then the topic shall be argued as "Nothing suggests there must be an omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient being of love and creation." Let's keep it clear and accessible, snappy and to the point. To give us some meat to work with right off the bat, I'll address some common arguments for the evidence of God. 1 - "Some da...

All "scientific evidence for God" can only argue that some creating thing exists, not that it's God

Bound_Up
trying2think

Suppose we grant all the arguments that the universe could not exist at all, and could not exist with order, without some creating thing behind it all. Suppose the evidence shows that such a thing must have been responsible for the universe. How go from there to any religion on earth? The religions of earth all go beyond the evidence. They tack on extra information that there's no evidence for. Maybe the complexity of genes suggests an ordering thing, but it tells you nothing about whether...

A universe with a God has no more morality than a universe without one

Bound_Up
ViceRegent

It is said that without God, you can have no objective morality. Suppose that you do have a God. He says people should act in certain ways. So what? What makes him right? And whatever rule you use to determine why his kind of being must be right about such things, how do you know it's correct?...

Utilitarianism

NeoMachine
Sarasaz

I strongly believe that Utilitarianism (the greater good for the greater number) is the best philosophy that everyone should follow. I know there is some issues between Act-Utilitarianism and Rule-Utilitarianism, but it can simply be summed up as the world first being under Rule-U., but slowly progressing towards Act-U. as we advance farther in technology and knowledge in foresight....
