Is elf-worship a viable religion?

mightbenihilism
PaoPao

Here is my idea: a new religion, devoted to the worship of elves. I think people can more easily connect to the divine through the form of elves. A lot of people have issues with their Fathers, so "Father-God" is problematic. Many people have issues with their Mothers, too, so the Virgin Mary and Guan-Yin would not be acceptable to them. People may have been bitten by the neighborhood bully dog, so the dog-faced god Anubis would scare them. But no one has a problem with elves! Elves, because...

Resolved : A Christian God is necessary in order for objective morality to exist.

Mikal
Lupricona

BOP is on Pro. We kind of threw back ideas as to what the resolution should be, but we finally went with this one. Christian God - The Judeo-Christian God (Yaweh, etc) Objective morality - is the idea that a certain system of ethics or set of moral judgments is not just true according to a person's subjective opinion, but factually true Pro shall begin his arguments in round 1 and pass in the final round to even out the rounds. He has the BOP as he is the affirmative in this de...

I believe that marching band is a sport because you are doing very much work and you also are playing for points and scores. They have to do as much work as say a lacrosse player....

Public Prayer Should Not Be Allowed In School

Solomon_Orlando

We must go back to our first amendment that gives us the freedom of speech.(1) Now if we think about this topic there are going to be many guidelines among this. Shall we force students to pray at school? No, because there is separation between church and state. But, should we stop students from being allowed to pray in schools? No because we do have freedom of speech. Also in our first amendment we are given the freedom of religion. So although we cannot be forced to believe something, then we...

A Ouija Board Has Spiritual Qualities and Is Able To Receive Messages From The Dead

seedative
Burls

I would like to begin this debate by explaining what a Ouija Board is and what it does. A Ouija Board is a "mystical" Board that, when asked a question, is supposed to receive and spell out a message from a person that has passed on. I am here to say that a Ouija Board has no spiritual qualities what so ever and therefore, i negate the resolution. now, my opponent may ask the question, "then how does it work?". well, i have an answer. According to Howstuffworks.com, the pointer of the Ouija Boar...

School bands are essential for successful students

salmongirl17
funnycn

I say that school bands, such as marching, jazz, and concert bands are essential for students to succeed. I have found that students feel socially welcome in band, which allows them to be more confident in many things they never thought they could really do because of all of the peer pressure and bullying in middle and high schools in this day and age. Because they are in band, and because they are confident and feel safe in this social group, band kids are also more likely to get better grades...
