The Christian god is Fair

solo
InquireTruth

Resolved: The Christian god exists. The Christian god is not fair as described in the following bible passage: http://bibleresources.bible.com/passagesearchresults.php?passage1=Deuteronomy+32:4&version=51 Deuteronomy 32:4: 4 He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect. Everything he does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright he is! The Christian god is selective of whom he directly communicates with, which is just one example of unfairness....

InquireTruth
TombLikeBomb

Resolved: The Law of Parsimony Favors Intelligent Design Over Alternative Theories. Please abstain from the use of semantics. I would like to thank my future opponent for his/her willingness to debate this topic. For the sake of clarity I will briefly summarize the rule of parsimony and Intelligent Design, and then follow with my numerically listed points. The Rule of Parsimony: Essentially, the simplest theory wins. That is to say, the theory with the same explanatory power and least...

The Jesus of the Bible Probably Existed

InquireTruth
JustCallMeTarzan

I will make my case and address the most common arguments presented by the mythological Jesus camp. The Historicity of Jesus as reported by extrabiblical sources, biblical sources, and basic logic: 1. Tacitus was an early Roman historian who wrote early in the 2nd century. In his writings we have a reference to Jesus as the founder of Christianity and his being crucified under the thumb of Pontius Pilot. Unfortunately much of Tacitus' work has been lost, including portions from 29-32 AD –...

On balance, capitalism is more humanitarian than communism.

Danielle

Thanks, Lwerd for accepting, and good luck! As before, the burden of proof is equal: we both must show the merits of our respective systems and demonstrate their superiority over the alternative. == Definitions == Capitalism – economic system characterized by voluntary exchange, private ownership, and the prohibition of force, fraud, and coercion. Humanitarian – showing concern for welfare and happiness of mankind. I'll leave this term open-ended. Some possible criteria might incl...

The Bible Qualifies as a Collection of Fairy Tales - E

JustCallMeTarzan
cto09

The proposition on offer is that the Bible qualifies as a collection of fairy tales. The letter is to disambiguate from other versions of the same debate. Obviously by collection, I mean that there are more than one in the same book ("something that is collected; a group of objects or an amount of material accumulated in one location, esp. for some purpose or as a result of some process" - Dictionary.com). And by fairy tale, I mean the following: Fairy Tale: –noun 1. a story, usually fo...

The user known as 'philosphical' is the same person as the user known as 'GhostWriter.'

Danielle
philosphical

Philosphical has been a pillar of morality for this entire community. He has never been shy about correcting other people, or putting his foot down in the face of injustice. He has sworn that he would NEVER (!) do something like make another account on DDO, V-bomb, or pretend to be someone he is not. Obviously a man of his stature would not be so hypocritical and condescending to those liars and cheats whom many now consider his peers. However, philosphical has indeed been accused of some harsh...
