In this debate i would like to discuss two aspects which i think are indispencible to each other;first : that religion is a way of living ,when you adopt a religion you accept certain beliefs and principles(eg;non voilence in jainism) in life . secondly, i think that in today`s world the concept of religion is largely exploited into wrong deeds..people are being brainwashed in the name of religion to carry out henious deeds, for eg;the terrorists who carried out the 9/11 attacks in us believed t...

Antitheism is justified

Antitheist

Antitheism is the key to keeping religion in check. If no one speaks up against dangerous doctrines in the Koran and Bible, it will continue to have a grip on the world and people will follow it blindly. Antitheism as defined by RationalWiki is: "outspoken opposition to theism and religion"http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Antitheism. It is not hatred of theists, desire to kill them etc and not all atheists are antitheist. Some are indifferent to religion, others see it positively, and their are an...

Infliction of cruelty with a good conscience is delight to moralists. That is why they invented hell

TeddyTed
GMan7112

[T]he infliction of cruelty with a good conscience is a delight to moralists. That is why they invented Hell." This is a quote written by Bertrand Russell. While it is true that due to the advent of hell, crime must have been reduced but Hell, as we currently understand it, is the product of several snowballing misconceptions and irresponsibly translated scriptures. Many Christians believe that the God of the Bible invented or designed Hell.The concept of a torturous, demon-governed "underworld"...

both legally and morally, the third trimester of pregnancy should be heavily regulated to prevent abortion. legally.... roe v wade allows regulation, but doe v. bolton in practice has effectively render void that legislative option. "Whether, in the words of the Georgia statute, "an abortion is necessary" is a professional judgment that the Georgia physician will be called upon to make routinely. We agree with the District Court, 319 F. Supp., at 1058, that the medical judgment may be exer...

tychosonic
masterharrison30

When determining which religious beliefs are specifically supported by the Christian Bible and which are not, it is paramount to review specific scriptures relating to the topic. The Christian Bible only mentions homosexual behavior 3 times in the New Testament, they are as follows: "In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their er...

Isaiah 7:14 is a prophecy of the Messiah (contrary to claims by Infidels)

daley
kohai

This debate is not regarding weather Jesus is really the Messiah, but rather the original intent of Isaiah 7:14 was to point to the coming of the Messiah whom Matthew believes to be Jesus Christ. If this can be shown to be a genuine Messianic prophecy it has great inplications for atheism, for it means we have a prophecy recorded in extant scrolls of Isaiah predating Jesus, which are actually fulfilled in the first century in his life. This would be strong evidence for God, but God's existence i...
