The Universe was created by God

kurosakiichigo
TheProver

Well, this debate is about the creation of the universe. I want to firstly define the specifics of this debate... Round 1 is acceptance, Round 2 is arguments Round 3 is arguments and rebuttals, Round 4 is conclusion I will be on the side that God didn't create the Universe. And, to define a few terms, God is the being whom, according to some religions, created the universe. The universe is the place all around Earth, including the creatures on Earth. This is an open debate... I hope that...

Is elf-worship a viable religion?

mightbenihilism
PaoPao

Here is my idea: a new religion, devoted to the worship of elves. I think people can more easily connect to the divine through the form of elves. A lot of people have issues with their Fathers, so "Father-God" is problematic. Many people have issues with their Mothers, too, so the Virgin Mary and Guan-Yin would not be acceptable to them. People may have been bitten by the neighborhood bully dog, so the dog-faced god Anubis would scare them. But no one has a problem with elves! Elves, because...

Buddhism: the true way to inner Peace?

TheBuddhist2468
mightbenihilism

Yes. I am a Buddhist, and I feel that Buddhism is the only religion that finds inner Peace, and I also feel that its complex teachings are for intellectuals to understand, and not as simple as some other fairy tale religions that we are presently in notice of. Furthermore, the Buddhist practice of meditation is a way to widen your thinking power and memory power, and it also gives you a composed and calm appearance....

Is atheism better for the world than theism?

DraftyBasilisk
Craighawley215

It is clear that religion has had a large effect on my penis. Our legal system and personal morals are all structured around historical theism, so it is quite easy to believe that we are better off with it. However, lets take a look at what theism has actually done in the past. It supported the rise of Nazism and gave support to Nazi war criminals after the war by smuggling them out of their countries. It used it's power in history to attempt a multitude of genocide (the crusades for example), a...

The Bible is not absolute and the Bible is not final.

pivot
amigodana

The Pro position, (mine) is that the Bible has never been absolute or final. Parts of the Bible may or may not be inspired, (that is up to the reader to decide). Most of what passes for an absolute is pure superstition. We do not have to fear the Bible. We can do anything we want with it. It is nothing more than paper and ink or even less than paper. It certainly cannot stand the test of time and has proven to be mostly hyperbole, especially the Old Testament part. This debate is in four sect...

is santa claus real?

king_victor1
Zanomi3

Each year, millions of moms and dads are confronted with the dreaded question: Is there a Santa Claus? Is all this real? Or is it all just pretend? And for generations, parents have used this unique moment of decision as a preperatory course in how they will answer the much more challenging questions that will come later, as puberty, broken hearts and first cars begin to replace the magic and fantasy of childhood. This question offers moms and dads a wonderful opportunity to teach their chil...

Organized religion

AgnosticPanda
AbandonedSpring

I believe that organized religions are flawed systems of belief because they require you to worship a "God" and may squish any other beliefs that may be present prior to accepting religion or disables you from beliefs that may actually relate to your surroundings and it can cause you to believe that there is a "plan" for human kind. What say you?...
