Oral transmission in the Bible is reliable

Truth_seeker
Sagey

Reliability will be measured by the ability to recall memory to the point where the essentially entire message is preserved. I will provide evidence for why oral transmission used to pass the Bible (particularly the New Testament) is reliable (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_gospel_traditions). first round acceptance...

I will be arguing that the account of creation in the book of Genesis, specifically Genesis 1:1-2:3, is scientifically viable. This is my first debate so don't expect me to be amazing haha....

Gun Free Zone on College Campus

Trig314
jpl951

I am currently an enrolled student, and also have a license to carry a concealed handgun in public. To be more specific about my position on this, I believe that it is wrong for Public Colleges/Universities to not offer any kind of process in which an individual may gain legal rights to carry a concealed handgun on campus when he/she goes to class. Of course, I also welcome faculty/teachers/staff to be allowed that offer as well. It's not just for the students. I do agree that we should not just...

HINDI should not be used in India for its development.

gsairam
Atheist-Independent

Hindi might be the official language or national language of India but my question is why Hindi when we use 90 % only English in almost all the various industries , companies, etc . W use the UK English text in most of the daily life and moreover English is regarded as the global language but still Hindi is our national language. Why? if you say that's because most states of India speak Hindi then I believe there are 10 times more people in India who speak English. now the world calls for...

school uniforms

kai11
Krieg01

if schools decide that students should have uniforms then they are the problem. students get bullied over their clothes sure but the teachers stop and report it. All over the United States of America students are being taught to express their individuality by teachers, not to follow the crowd, but now they are double talking meaning that they say one thing and then say the exact opposite the next. That is also called being a hypocrite. Anyone who agrees with the teachers is saying that students...

Young Americans should be required to spend at least one year in public service.

ShannonM
64bithuman

It is completely unreasonable to have young Americans complete such a task because if America is built of a single word: FREEDOM, then why are we not allowing the future of America choose whether or not to go into the field of public service for a year. It would not be freedom if we, the government, MAKE the young do this responsibility. According to Google, freedom means the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Although, young Americans are not leg...
