Does God Exist?

Stealyogirl-osaurus
QueenAnnesRevenge

My argument is that God does not exist based on the fact that all "evidence" that has been proposed to me thus far has been without merit and sprouted out blindly from every person that has tried to convince me that God does in fact exist. I am looking for a healthy debate where we can argue the existence of God through reason and evidence....

Theism offers a more likely context than atheism for affirming moral realism.

popculturepooka
Sargon

I thank Sargon agreeing to debate me on this topic. I shall be arguing that given moral realism theism is more likely than atheism. Or that theism makes "more sense" of moral realism than atheism does. My job is to argue that, yes, theism offer a more likely context in which to affirm moral realism and Con's job is to argue that, to the contrary, atheism offers a more likely context than theism in which to affirm moral realism. In short, this will be a mostly meta-ethical debate. [1]<...

Is the environmental movement based on false logic?

themightyindividual
itsmagyk

1. Objective value of anti-environmentalism The modern world's industrial economy allows for more than 7 billion people (and counting) to exist on this planet. Capitalist progress had proven wrong the environmentalists of the late 19th century who claimed that the population would die out after 2 billion people because it is not possible to produce food and shelter for a large amount of people. You live in a house made of wood, with heat from natural gas, you use electricity made from coal, g...

Ajabi
9spaceking

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This debate entitled: This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts are Immoral. This is ROUND 3 of WODC hosted by edeb8 and larztheloser. Now I believe that I should clarify the rules, the order, and some principle definitions which will be referred to throughout the debate. 1. The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no refutations will be allowed in the first argument. 2. The first round is for rules, orders, definiti...

Wal, Mart is a harasser here.

Obviously I would have to provide a video of my screen, but the truth is that Wally Land Pharmacy appears randomly and blinks its message at me repeatedly. That is the truth. Con must defend Wal Mart Pharmaceuticals. Con must not be on Wally World drugs....

God doesn't exist.

Dookieman
Toviyah

First round is for acceptance. Second round is for opening statements. Third round for first rebuttals. Fourth round for second rebuttals and concluding remarks. Pro will argue that God doesn't exist and Con will argue that God does exist. God will be defined as the omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent, eternal creator and sustainer of the universe. Omnipotent means all powerful. Omniscient means all knowing. Omnibenevolent means all loving. Good luck! (:...
