All religions need to unite, and understand what religion actually is

Bruntru
harrytruman

I believe that all religions should unite, and truly understand what religion is, as if believers are capable to hold wars due to their different religions, they are completely looking at the wrong end of what religion is. First of all I would like to clarify what I consider as a religion: A religion is a group of people that worship to do good, appreciate what they have, seek to help others, and acknowledge that there must be a creator of the universe....

What is more valuable: Making your own clothes? Or paying over-priced fashions?

Pyrophobia
mschechtel17

I think it is more valuable for everyone to find a sense of achievement in learning to create something original that they can make themselves as opposed to spending outrageous amounts of money from the fashion industry who seems to get greedier as time goes on. I realize that people are judged by their clothing style but who really has the right to try to change another person style choice?...

An Outside Intruder Did Not Kill JonBenet Ramsey

warren42

This debate is for BSH's tournament. I will be defending the idea that an outside intruder (anyone other than the parents or brother of the victim) did NOT kill JonBenet Ramsey. As such, I assume the full BOP. I must prove, beyond a REASONABLE doubt, that one of JonBenet's mother, father, and brother was responsible for her death. Standard format....

is Graffiti Art?

ankitkarn

Is Graffiti Art? Yes, it is. Grafitti is art and it takes time, patience and artistic skill. It kills time and even though it is against the law and it damages buildings, you can buy a building or highway and do it there and you are doing it to your property. Still not enough reasons. It is cool and gives people something to look at....

Do playing violent video games affect your mental health

DiligentSpace1293
akaRay

Yes, violent video games are something that can affect your mental health. Violent video games show gore, murder of people and animals, usage and abuse of drugs, alcohol, racial slurs, nudity and foul language. These things can cause serious problems, for example when a player is in rage if they died or lost a level they may slam their fist on a table or even more extreme smash their controller to bits and pieces. When playing a game you are so immersed into it you may not pay attention to thing...

The Cosmological Argument for God is a bad argument and people need to stop using it

extian
Yarn

I used to believe in God, and one of the last arguments that kept me in theism was the Cosmological Argument. There are a couple of versions of this argument, but the most popular one is the Kalam Cosmological Argument. It goes as follows: Premise 1: Whatever begins to exist has a cause. Premise 2: The Universe began to exist. Conclusion: Therefore, the Universe had a cause. The argument is valid, but I now realize it is not sound. The first premise can be rejected because we can find ev...
