Is it better to be an optimist or pessimist?

Sidex
Akimoney

Ok, do you want this to be a pride at stake debate? Choose a side and the stakes, and I will argue the opposite. I suppose I should put my pride with where my mouth is. Beat me in any debate and brag to world that you have put me in my place on my knees humbled until the Christ comes. I don't think I care if I lose anymore. I know I shouldn't be saying that, but unless this happens, I don't think most people can truly accept me....

We let Culture and Religion affect our lives way more then it has to.

Nandu007

For something that is more or less given to us, we give Culture and Religion way too much importance then is required. We do not let ourselves be friends with others because of their religion, or love someone only because of the difference in cultures. We give up opportunities and are close minded, preventing us from learning new things, why? Because when we were born we were born to someone of a certain culture and religion that is different from someone else. No my point is not that we should...

Choose to argue any side and I will argue the opposite. I'm just trying to hone my debating skills. If you win, good for you. If you think that me losing undermines everything that I've said, that's your prerogative. Your definition of both types of lies is sufficient....

Money enslaves the populus

dr.jimmythefish
Rational_Thinker9119

The practice of money, and its inevitable hoarding causes a concentration of power in a new monarchy of billionaires, who are running the world through capital. The world is now less nations and more corporations, ran by unelected CEOs who answer to none other than their shareholders and they by use of bribery control their interests in government. Democracy and freedom are dead, the destruction of the means of control is necessary, for this means also controls your daily life, each and every da...

Jesus was a Socialist

Avelvetnightmare
Sidex

Despite many exploitative, decadent, highly capitalist societies use jesus and religion as propaganda, as well as an excuse to marginalize the majority of the workers, I believe the facts as well as his teachings prove that Jesus was a Socialist, here is why. He clearly disapproved of wealth inequality, one of his quotes was "Assuredly, I say to you it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven." Jesus clearly had an understanding of the corruption and inequality that comes from ar...

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Unstobbaple

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT THESE ATHEISTS KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET NOT ONE HAS ANSWERED MY Q. Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. SO,...

I'm making the character limit 5,000, as I want this debate to be easily read by voters, and not too lengthy. I'm open to increasing the character limit or the number of rounds if con wants me to. Be sure to comment that you want me to change it before accepting the debate, otherwise I won't be able to change it.Rules: 1) The total number of rounds minus one should be used for debate(so, if there are 3 rounds, use only 2 rounds for deb...
