bsh1

First and foremost, I'd like to congratulate bsh1 on making it this far in the tournament. Much as he has achieved this before, and even won before, I think it's a massive achievement with all of the fantastic competition we've had. Second, I am again honored to be debating a venerated veteran of the site. I have a lot of respect for bsh1 and his debating prowess, something I know he'll bring in spades to this debate. I hope I am up to the challenge, but most importantly, no matter how this ends...

DavidMGold

The 'First Round' of this debate will be my formal challenge to my opponent to debate the issue of whether or not Muslims incite genocide against Non-Muslims (especially the Jewish people). Other issues would be violence and terrorism as it relates to Islam. My opponent is free to make and opening argument or simply accept the challenge. The winner should be apparent at the end of these 5 rounds based on the evidence....

Testosterone causes Menopause

GoOrDin
A341

Digetsing testosterone causes menopause for women. First impairing ovary development, and later ceasing functions. The end result is menopause. this can come about by eating male animal meats as well as a more prominent substance, but because the isrealites were instructed to remove the hormone rich blood, this means of attaining the condition is prolonged by 30-40 years: meaning acquiring menopause may only take 7-10 years to get it, but by eating only meat it may take 40-XX amount of ye...

Jesus is still loving and pure even when he had all those innocents killed in the OT

Redmoon

Many people make this argument when trying to catch us Christians out. I thought I'd clarify the truth about whether or not Jesus is still pure and loving even when he had all those innocents killed back in the Old Testament. First of all I'd like to point out that whenever the Israelites came across another race, God didn't automatically be like "Israel, Destroy them!" He only had certain people annihilated and of course He had His reasons. A lot of the time humanity uses excuses of various...

islam is a religion of violence

dairygirl4u2c
GoOrDin

this debate focuses on nonbelievers, not things such as stoning sinners. if you included this stuff, it'd be even more violent. "The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter."...
