If Jesus were nunchucked in the balls, would he think of his religion or his balls?

If Jesus were nunchucked in the balls, would he think of his religion or would he think of his balls? "What's particularly insidious and vicious about getting your testicles slammed by a foot, knee, or flying object is that the fun doesn't just stop with the searing pain. Next, the brain releases endorphins leading to decreased oxygen levels within the brain. The decreased oxygen in the brain, coupled with the horrid pain, direct all thoughts directly and exclusively to the testicles. The...

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this qu...

RileySchlick

This debate is over the validity of Ludwig Feuerbach's Theory of Religion given in his work, "The Essence of Christianity." Feuerbach subjects his own theory to questioning in his explanation. Feuerbach's General Thesis of Religion is as follows: 1. All religion is egoistic - arises out of and focuses on human needs and concerns 2. Originally, religion personified forces of nature. They became Gods - and humans relate to these with both a feeling of fear and love. Monotheistic religion...

The Prince Should Not Have Rescued Rapunzel

Mharman

This debate is whether the prince should have rescued Rapunzel or not. I can tell you why he shouldn't have, and you can tell me why he should have. The story portrays the prince as a hero, inciting its observers to think that Rapunzel would have never been freed, had the prince never come to her rescue, which not only discourages independence but also encourages dependency. Rapunzel did not need the prince to escape: Rapunzel could have chewed her hair off and used it as a rope to climb d...

Jihad on a woman's face IS permitted.

JudgeSchreber

Salam. This topic is of special importance to me. It's a subject that is dear to me. The noble Qur'an permits us to beat our wifes, surah 4:34. This evening my wife rebelled against me. She actually tried to leave my house without my permission. I ran out the door and confronted her about her abhorrent misconduct. I grabbed her and screamed into her face, 'what? Did I give my consent without knowing?' When she didn't respond, I gave her a warning. (By the Mercy of Subhanalla the merciful s...

Is the law presented for societal betterment?

JudgeSchreber
Agonist

I'm interested to see how this plays out. I'd like to argue against the law, or offering the law as a means of legal commensuration. Saw your name (the Agonist) and figured I'd be interested in what your defense of the State would be like (I'm ready to go up against Wingenbach, but anything else should be fascinating). So: feel free to start in your first speech. I'll negate it. Hopefully everyone's okay with philosophical debate, especially concerning power structures. No new args in the last t...

Define Love Objectively

Sidex
imsmarterthanyou98

The purpose of this argument is to define "love" objectively. I have created the theorem below that as not been proven wrong which objectifies morality. The link below it clarifies how the theorem was created. I will make a statement of love in regards to the theorem. You may counter that statement or you may counter my objective definition of "love". The con/against has the burden of proving me wrong in any aspect. The pro/for has the burden of not being wrong. My argument will include to you t...
