Time and Energy Have no Beginning From a Biblical and/or Scientific Viewpoint

daley
ricksterpr0

It is often said that the Big Bang was the beginning of all time, space, energy and matter. While I believe that the Big Bang happened, I will be arguing that this event was not the beginning of time or energy. My position is that TIME and Energy HAVE NO BEGINNING. They are eternal, they always existed. I will also be arguing the sub-point that time IS NOT LINEAR, but that past, present and future all exist simultaneously. My opponent my argue from either science, the Bible, or both (tho...

Slavery can be justified

ChosenWolff
KhalifV

First round is acceptance. I will attempt to prove that "slavery can be justified". Slavery will be defined as the "Act of owning slaves". A slave will be defined as a " a person who is excessively dependent upon or controlled by something". I am taking this unpopular position to test an unpopular argument. This debate doesn't reflect my views. It is done for the purpose of discussion and higher understanding. R4 will be a "no round" unless I decide to extend it.

Atheistic Military Men are Proud Brave Fools if not obedient cowardlly fools, and they can be mean.

Opening round for acceptance with or without an argument from my opponent.Rules.......No vulgarity or sexually explicit comments. Using the word "Hell" as anything other than a noun which describes a literal place of fiery torment in this debate will be considered vulgarity. Cursing in this debate will be considered vulgarity. Violations of these rules are bad conduct and votes must agree. This is expected to be a heated debate between manly men (unless my opponent i...

You can't go to heaven the way you are yourself

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Brendan_Liam

If you say there is no heaven or heaven must be proven, it does not matter. If there is no heaven, then you can't go to heaven no matter what. If you say heaven cannot be proven, it does not matter. All I have to do is show it would not be heaven if you were there as you are yourself....

God does not exist

Cold-Mind
CordialCongressman

Put your definition/description of god in the comments, and I will change the debate so you can accept it. When we start a debate only statements about god you listed in the comments will be accepted as true description of god. Any statement about god you add up later will be rejected as probably false. Round 1 is acceptance only. BoP is on Pro. Voting rules: - Forfeit in Round 2 means loss....

People cannot be sure that they will save a best friends life until they are in the moment

Chargers
madlibs

So many people will say that they would give their life for that of a friends but this type of thing cannot be answered directly with a definite yes but more with a "I would like to believe that I would". This is completely a situational type of thing where the situation that you are put in effects the decision that is made. You cannot be sure of any of the answers that you give until you are put in that moment....

Evolution is a Bad Joke

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Sfaulkner

My opponent must argue that evolution is not a bad joke. To do this, my opponent is free to ignore the humor I will display in pointing out how ridiculous it is to believe in evolution, and my opponent is free to ignore the evil that has been forced on the world through wars instigated by people who believe in the basic hypothesis of evolutionary theory which are 1) Survival of the Fittest and 2) Natural selection. My opponent is also free to igno...
