It was the failures of the GMD that caused the CPC to win the civil war, not the actions of the CPC

Daghini

I have heard many times about 'pitbulls' and ridiculous myths ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/arin-greenwood/pit-bull-myths_b_5623555.html ) about those types of breeds. One that I remember off the top of my head is that pitbulls have a locking jaw. Um, no. They just have a larger skull than other dogs. And that they are born 'vicious, killing machines'.

OrdinaryRadical
vi_spex

For centuries, The problem of Evil has been the champion in Epicurean Philosophy which then evolved into modern Scientism which is a philosophy that many people hold to today.

My opponent must show then, That the problem of evil is indeed a good argument against the existence of God....
