Did God intend humans to sin.

WCBC15
MagicAintReal

I will show through scripture the purpose of why God created the human race and why it is illogical and not biblical to say God intended for man to sin. (1.) He created man for His glory: Isaiah 43:7 - [Even] every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him. (2.) To have dominion over all the earth: Genesis 1:26 - And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, an...

On balance, capitalism is more humanitarian than communism

J.Kenyon
charleslb

Charleslb has an awful lot to say about capitalism (and capitalists), but he has yet to take on any of the experienced libertarian in a formal debate. The burden of proof is equal: we both must prove 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. Note: while there are other definitions o...

Insulting someone by calling them a liar is materially different from other insults

This debate aims to further convince CON of PRO's case.Resolution:Insulting someone by calling them a liar is materially different from other insults.Definitions:...

Scientists have no proof that humans are responsible for a significant amount of global warming.

HandsOff
TheRaven

There, I said it. And it's true. Even scientists who "believe" humans are largely repsonsible for recent temperature changes will admit they do not have definitive proof. The PR campaign of the left claiming scientists "have reached" a consensus implies the research is finally complete. However, a "consensus" is only 51 percent, and no one is stopping to consider that legitimate science is a product of fact and not popularity or speculation in the absence of conclusive evidence. The liberals and...

You cannot prove that Bigfoot does not exist

ReformedArsenal
sehyunsohn

Izbo10 appears to think it is possible to prove that a given thing does not exist. For the sake of this debate, we shall use Bigfoot as an example, but you could replace Bigfoot with any other item or entity that is not logically contradictory (A circle with four sides is logically contradictory so you it is not valid, the flying spaghetti monster is not logically contradictory so it would apply). However, he is unwilling to support defend this in debate. I am opening this debate up to anyo...

It is reasonable to believe that the Resurrection of Jesus is a historical event

Bible-Defender
TheSkeptic

I contend that the Resurrection of Jesus is a historical event that probably happened. It is impossible to reach 100% certainty. However, that should not detract from the discussion since that is the way it is in all of history. One can only prove what probably happened. The historical methodology used to ascertain whether something is to be considered a historical fact is whether the reasons for accepting it outweighs the reasons for rejecting it. It is my contention based upon this that the Re...
