Large-Scale Islamic Belief is Harmful to Society

The_Shaman
UniversalTheologian

In this debate, I will be arguing that large-scale cases of Islamic belief (such as in Muslim-majority countries, past and present, and cases of Muslim immigration), cause harm to society (meaning to countries where the Muslim majority/immigration is present, and the World as a whole). To clarify, I am not trying to assert that merely being a Muslim causes one to harm society, I am asserting that in places where Islam is very prevalent, harm is caused to society. - In this debate, usage...

Something regarding atheism vs religion - not sure yet

EnlightenmentLiberal
MikeManea

Let me give some background. This is my screen name in several places online, including at "freethoughtblogs.com/axp/". I am in no way affiliated with The Atheist Experience nor the Atheist Community of Austin. I am a mere regular commenter. One day, Mike hired a service to promote his website, and that service posted several comments to The Atheist Experience blog. (That's the stored given to me by Mike in email.) Here is the post. http://freethoughtblogs.com/axp/2014/09/12/abilene-talk-i...

Homosexual pastors.. Is this right??

dnelms77
TheSatiricalAnarchist

I do not see how this is a possible without going against what God has laid out for us. God intends for pastors of the church to be leaders in Christ. They are there to help new born believers find their way in their walk... not confuse them. God describes homosexuality as an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22. Abomination is a pretty strong word to use to describe how he feels about this lifestyle. As a pastor, this is one of many subjects that cannot be skipped. How would a homosexua...

Jesus claimed to be a Jewish Messiah and was later misrepresented to create Christianity

Fungames
HardRockHallelujah

Disclaimer: I kindly ask only a person well-versed in New Testament and history of the period just before and after Christ to accept this debate. The subject of this debate will be one of the hypotheses who Jesus really was. It should be fairly obvious that I assume Jesus existed and that New Testament tells stories of real events that do have a grain of truth in them, or even a whole sack of grai...

The crusades were justified responses to Muslim Aggresion

mikethedebater
UtherPenguin

All too many times, I have heard people shame medieval Europe and the Crusaders as conquerors, enslaves and savages. I have heard many liberal apologists try to compare Christianity with Islam by equating the Crusades with Jihad. Unfortunately, many of the arguments of the Crusades fall short in key areas and an in depth analysis into the wars will reveal that not only were the Crusades justified, they were necessary in order to preserve the Christian world from falling to Muslim armies. I would...

The Kalam Cosmological Argument is False

elthagreat
Alpha3141

The Kalam Cosmological Argument is false primary because of it's misunderstanding of The Big Bang, and logical fallacies which includes the idea that God existed when time, and space didn't exist (which is a scientific misconception by the way, but we'll get to that later. However we'll accept it for the sake of argument). This would violate the definition of existence itself which is something that is bound by the state of physical laws, and space and time. The way we tell if something exists i...
