The infringement of personal zones in church lead to a biased and emotional response to the gospel.

odi
mypeanutbelike

It is a known fact that each individual has what is called the personal/ intimate zone. It is also known that the reason why large numbers of protester often turn violent, even though they only intend to protest peacefully, is that an entry into a personal zone leads to an emotional response and at most anger. Churches (especially Pentecostals) have a similar setup to the protest situation. Large numbers of people are in the church and interfering with each others zones. Surely it fits in to...

Debate.org should maintain it's policy of deletion

thett3
thehumanistpreacher

Thanks in advance to my opponent for accepting. In the forums, my opponent has contended very strongly that DDO should implement a policy he terms "Free debates" where no debates or threads are deleted. I invite him to defend this proposition. Since my opponent is the one advocating a change in the status quo but I'm the affirmative, the burden of proof will be shared. What a shared burden of proof means is that rather than the judge defaulting to one side, both sides are obliga...

On our last attempt at debating this subject, I had to leave for a vacation where I didn't have access to WiFi. I was forced to forfeit and thus "lost" the debate. I'd be interested in a rematch. I'll use the same arguments i presented for the last debate in the opening round. Con is free to copy and paste his previous arguments as well, or present an entirley new case. Good luck. ===========...

PawelK

About two years ago ago here in Poland, where I live, nasty crime occurred. Mother gave 9 year old son with emotional problems on the observations to a psychiatric hospital, the child was brutally anally raped by a 16 year old degenerate. Some people began to demand the introduction of compulsory sterilization of sexual abusers, but not limited to chemical sterilization, but a full surgical castration involving not only the removal of the testicles but preferably the whole of the crime wea...

Science has rendered theism unreasonable

Jellon
Envisage

There is a chronic tension between agnostics and theists where both sides believe people who believe the other side are unreasonable. I often see names called by both sides. As one who believes both belief systems are reasonable, I intend to defend the position that modern science has not rendered theism unreasonable. To win, Pro must show that modern scientific knowledge provides overwhelming evidence that there does not exist a god. To win, Con must be able to reasonably address all argume...

Are vampires real?

Madgirl707
Isaac77

I believe vampires are real because of the fact that the stories must have been pasted down for years for a reason. The tales of Vampires have been told for centuries, people who have died and Been reborn into blood thirsty hunters. These myths must have come from somewhere. It is almost impossible to fabricate a creature in such detail and have enough people to believe it that people were burned or staked for it as a crime. If the legends are fake then where did they come from? And why do so...
