Philosopher Kings are the solution.

Rules: quality sources, not quantity. Anecdotes are forbidden. New rules can be updated in comments. Arguments: Plato had the idea, but he"s not here now. Ph . D"s would be apt to replace dictators and prime ministers. Experts would be forbidden from developing an elitist paradigm. Educated and competent leaders are not only pertinent to global improvement and future survival. Greedy corporations are killing humanity. https://youtu.be/ALXsaT6bqL0 https://youtu.be/fLJBzhcSWTk Thank...

god knowingly and willfully hates children according to the bible

Children watching violence on tv, bad. Children in church seeing a lifelike grotesque statue of a crucified man, good. Makes sense? - David BlicksteinYour job in this debate is to prove that god loves children. Saying that god does, is not enough and is not the same thing.There are at least 30+ verses in the bible where god shows his hatred and evil towards children in which most of them will be presented throughout this debate. The question is "why"? I'll tel...

Organized Religion Should be Abolished Worldwide

I'd like for this debate to follow a structure similar to a typical parliamentary debate. I'd also like for the arguments in this debate to be somewhat calculated so as to avoid massive walls of incomprehensible text. At the same time I'd like any evidence you'd like to reference be restated in your own words so as to draw upon the main points that apply to your argument. Posting links is good, but don't expect to me or any judges to read entire studies or watch videos for more than two minutes...

Where did God come from? A dream, a lie, and an explanation

backwardseden

Taken from "The Atheist Republic" Where did god come from? To Atheist Republic contributor Dean Van Drasek, the answer is simple: a dream, a lie, and an explanation. You may have come across this topic in books and articles about religion, psychology, anthropology, philosophy, comparative mythology/religion, archeology, and even popular science books. Sadly, there is no answer, as it's buried in the depths of time before humans developed writing, and probably even before there was cave paint...

FollowerofChrist1955

I know I already did one that was basically the same topic as this but now that I know my away around the site better I want to try again. Rules, No insults Provide evidence for your claim ( links ) Address any fallacies that are called out throughout the debate. And provide concrete evidence ... " because god!" is not concrete evidence, you'll need to provide world accepted scientific articles. Let the games begin...

"Does philosophy and science work together to offer compelling evidence for the existence of God?"

Dhides3
philochristos

The past has to be finite. If the universe never began to exist, then the number of the past events in the history of the universe is infinite. If all events are infinite then you cannot have infinite numbers of past events because it leads to absurdity. The universe must have a first event. You cannot have an infinite number of events this means that the universe must have a cause, it must have a first event. Based on the metaphysical principle something cannot come from nothing and therefore t...
