Is The Biblical God Morally Better Than Humans


Round 1 is simply introductions and rather or not my opponent accepts my challenge. I have challenged Toxifrost to a religious/philosophical debate and at the moment I'm currently awaiting his answer. Personally, I'm a Christian and a firm believer in the Bible. I will try to argue that the biblical God is morally better (even morally superior) than us humans. I hope this argument remains civil and not turn into a contest of insults or popularity contest, meaning that if I lose it is because...

I will define both philosophy and science for my opponent:Philosophy: A way of perceiving or understanding reality with logical thought. Science: A way of perceiving reality with empirical thought and observation. ...

Con When a women has an abortion, she is removing only a clump of cells from her body ( I am opposed abortion after 6 months ). Should the government force her to birth what is technically a parasite in her body? Arguing that a fetus is a human and should receive basic human rights is a viable reason for not aborting, yet if you do believe that a fetus is a human, and thus with human rights, a fetus does not have the right to live inside another organism (just as any other human), nor does the...

Females are better people than males.


If there were to be only one gender on earth, which gender would be able to live together more peacefully? If one were to look at the nature of females overall, and how they interact with the rest of their community, I believe most would agree females are much better than males in this aspect. They're often more less-aggressive, more empathetic, and able to better cope with reality. This debate will essentially be about who is better at living in a community of others, males or females....
