Evidence for Science/bible

A.Rise
hookamogga

Honestly, there is a big difference between a compilation of bronze age folklore and science, which is backed up by unprecedented amounts of proven evidence. Back in the good old days, the catholic church made up everything they could to keep controlling people. Why would it make sense to believe in a myth that openly defies proven, rudimentary scientific principles when those principles serve a far better and relate-able explanation for life?...

Morality does not require the existence of a god

Rickenbacker4001
semper_ad_meliora

Morality is an evolved concept created solely in the mind of humankind. It does not exist outside of human thought and interaction. The claim that morality was given to men by some god outside of them is disprovable. 1. The concepts of good and evil do not exist outside of human interaction. Where there are no humans, no actions could be described as evil. A lion killing a lamb is not an evil act. A human allowing a lion to kill a lamb could, under the right circumstances be defined as evil...

Is Mary the "Queen of Heaven?"

amigodana
MIrandaA

Catholicism teaches that Mary is the "Queen of Heaven" and that she is without sin. I will take the position that she is not as the catholics teach but as the scriptures teach, nor is she sinless. As always we should make the Word are final authority in all things. So we will contain our descriptions and discussions within the scriptures of the King James Bible. You may start your debate at any time!...

USA vs Russia War Scenario

justindmack
TheRussian

The United States of America would defeat the Russian Federation in total war. Conditions: 1. USA is attacking 2. 1vs1, however allies can help economically (sanctions, trade deals, etc.) 3. No nukes 4. Current military technologies only, however this war would last for many years so industrial production of these current technologies, and not just current numbers, must be taken into account 5. If you want to change any of these conditions you may 6. I hope you accept :) After reading y...

Religious Schools Should Not Receive Government Funding

dhardage
Black_Death

Some educational voucher programs allow students to use that funding to attend religiously based schools. It is my contention that this violates the Establishment clause and should be prohibited. This is a brief three round debate so round one will be acceptance and brief rebuttal, round 2 for arguments and round 3 for summary. I place no restrictions on my opponent regarding rating but do insist on courtesy and sticking to the subject....

The Draft

WillRiley
S.Weekes

First round is acceptance. To clarify, this is the opinion you will be arguing against; I believe that the draft should never be used in cases of foreign wars. (Wars not happening within the home-country) We will not be allowed to use an invasion scenario or civil war scenario....
