The Buddha was an atheist.

If you wish to accept, please state so in the comments. The first round will be for acceptance. In this debate I will be arguing that the Buddha believed in the Supreme, Unknown, Absolute, all-creating Causeless Cause that some call God. While the Buddha did not specifically refer to It as God, I argue that He nevertheless believed in It. The burden of proof will be shared equally. Pro must argue that the Buddha was an atheist - that is, that He did not believe in God. Pro...

Why God is real! Matthew 24:9-10 ...'Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.' This is being repeated today in places like Iraq, Iran, China, North Korea, Pakistan, India, Nigeria, Egypt, where many Christians are being killed for their faith in Christ Jesus everyday....

Should girls play football?

LillianTheBeast13

I think girls should be able to play football because of multiple reasons 1. Women are made to have a larger pain tolerance than men. 2. Girls can be pretty rough when they are given the chance and in football they have all the chances in the world. 3. Football is a way for both girls and guys to let off steam by hitting others and they can let out their rage on others....

Should Home & Company Owners Be Encouraged to Hire Professional Cleaners?

Cleaning is not usually as simple as it may seem. Providing adequate cleaning for commercial buildings is required for ensuring a healthy work atmosphere for both employees, business and building owners. Even though clean air is extremely important for the health of people working in enclosed spaces, most company owners hire cleaners on a weekly or even monthly basis, creating a rather unhealthy place for their staff. For the well-being of the employees and visitors of the corporate buildings, r...

Should Black History be a Mandatory Standard in K-12 Education ?

kuddy

Some people are asking: How can the Philadelphia public school system mandate teaching African and African American history? But others of us are asking: How have school officials justified not teaching it in a school district where nearly two-thirds of all students are African American? America is so diverse that we should be teaching the stories of all its people, whether it is Greco-Roman history, including Greek mythology; Ireland's potato famine; the exodus of Eastern Europeans to Americ...
