Smacking Children

Nfernando
Zarroette

"When a big child hits a small child in the playground, we call him a bully; five years later he punches a woman for her handbag and is called a mugger; later still, when he slugs a workmate who insults him, he is called a troublemaker; but when he becomes a father and hits his tiresome, disobedient or disrespectful child, we call him a disciplinarian." I believe that this quote that I have taken from 'Children First', a novel by Dr Penelope Leach, showcases the inconsistency in the protection...

Religion is Predatory Cannibalism

Truthforall
NoComment030

This is a cop-out. Throughout history, insignificant religious leaders (by the standards of those not in the know) have killed millions of human beings who RELIGION, its leaders and its followers agree have been created by GOD. These people, strongly supported by followers (whether apartheid, Hitler support, Dark ages, Communism support, Idi Amin support etc.) has NEVER BEEN BROUGHT TO JUSTICE. If anyone exposes them, the mefia and governments rush into damage control TO SUPPORT THEM! Right up t...

Children should start learning education from the internet now, not schools.

paulheo
EpicLX

Children should start getting education from the internet since almost all information you want to know is contained in the internet. By learning from the internet you can save more money and other necessities required to go to school. You can save more time and greatly increase your knowledge because you can always test yourself or just click to review a page. It is true schools have social experience, but you can also have social experience from the internet, you are not going to sit all day,...

The bible has many logical contradictions

Agnostic_Meatatarian
XionChan

I will site parts in the bible that show blatant logical fallacies. God created imperfect man then blamed them for being imperfect even though he made them that way plus also makes evil and sin yet hates when we do them. " Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:" " Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create d...

Can a homosexual be a christian?

jo021698j
KhalifV

No. A homosexual cannot be a Christian. The only way for a homosexual to inherit the kingdom of God is repentance. Repentance from his/her ways. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." This is one verse that clearly sta...

The States are Sovereign. That is why they're called States

Sky55Anchorage
kasmic

This is my first Debate. In order to get a feel for this site I've decided to start my first debate with something that I've studied for years and am deeply intrigued by. On July 4 1776, Thirteen Colonies declared Sovereign Statehood and broke away from their oppressive government. Shortly after winning their war for secession they enacted the Articles of Confederation which, not only reinforced their Individual Sovereignty, prevented the creation of another oppressive Central Government. Ov...

Free Will Solutions to the Problem of Evil Fail

fa07
Steffan

My position in this argument is that free will theodicies fail. In other words, that an attempt to resolve the problem of evil upon the basis of the freedom of agents does not succeed as an argument. This includes both the logical problem of evil (i.e. whether evil is logically inconsistent with the existence of an all-good God), and the evidential problem of evil (i.e. whether the existence of evil makes the existence of God less probable than not). In other words, the individual on the con...
