Can God create a rock so big he can't lift it, or not create the rock? either, not @ same time

Can an Omnipotent God create a rock he cannot lift? it is said that If one answers yes to the question, then God is therefore not omnipotent because he cannot lift the rock, but if one answers no to the question, God is no longer omnipotent because he cannot create the rock. my position is that he can do one or the other, at different times, but he can't do both at the same time. and, that he can't do both at the same time doesn't disprove God as omnipotent. the solution is to say that God...

The aim of cinema is to entertain and not to educate

The primary aim of cinema is to entertain the masses. Cinema is one of the major source of entertainment in this global village. Long back cinema served the purpose of educating but in these days it is only just meant for entertainment and it does not teach moral values to the people.Today, people do not like taking advice and films based on giving advice and moral to audience fails miserably.So the sole aim of the makers of cinema is to gain a profit from these films. Most of the people in...

euthanasia should be banned

enakshisinha
mrPrime

Euthanasia should not be banned as it helps those people who are terminally ill and suffering from extreme physical pain to alleviate their pain by ending his or her life and die with dignity. It is more cruel and unfair to make them suffer and endure the unbearable pain.As the motive of euthanasia is to aid in dying painlessly, it should be considered positively by the lawmakers and should not be banned....

Do religious leaders have a fiduciary responsibility to those who follow them?

pivot
PauseAndThink

My job as Con is to show that religious leaders are not what they appear and that their followers don't get what they are expecting out of the relationship. In this debate we will not be addressing founders of a religion, Muhammad founded Islam so he would not be included in this debate. Moses on the other-hand could be included because Moses was not the founder of Judaism. Of course I want to keep this debate in a Biblical framework but that is not mandatory. Stepping outside the bounda...
