MUJAWAR

Con

Islam is the best religioun
BennyW

Pro

My opponent challenged me to a debate about the best religion. I don't know why he chose me specifically and he didn't really give anything to go by so I will take it upon myself to set up some parameters. First of all, the one thing my opponent did say is that "Islam is the best religion". I can only assume that means he wants me to debate against Islam even though he chose himself as con. However, since he didn't actually set up specifics for what pro and con would be, con will be defending Islam, pro will be defending Christianity. I await the next round to see what my opponent has to say and if he agrees to these terms.

MUJAWAR

Con

MUJAWAR forfeited this round.
BennyW

Pro

It is unfortunate that my opponent forfeited as I would have liked to see his arguments.


This debate is twofold. First is that I show what is wrong with Koran. Second I will show why Christianity and the Bible is better.


One verse is the verse of the sword Surah 9:5.Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. In Islamic theological tradition later verses abrogate previous verses rendering the previous verses no long applicable. This verse of the sword is one such late verse. [1]


The Koran has been corrupted and changed (see second video the first few minutes) so which version is correct?



Now why is the Bible better?


The Bible had been translated then most faithfully of any book and has the most evidence of any book of its era. The dead sea scrolls show some of the oldest available manuscripts and the words match up with later manuscripts perfectly. There are about 24,000 manuscripts that all agree.[2][3]


I hope my opponent shows up for the next round of the debate as I am looking forward to what he has to say.

True, but I hate to win by forfeit.

I guess this will probably be an easy victory for you, Benny, if we consider his forfeits.

It doesn't appear that my opponent will respond, I really would like to heard his response though as it is not often that I get to debate with Muslims and I want to hear their defense for their faith.

Sadly, Cliff is no longer active. Innomen told me, and others, that Cliff was disturbed by the way how this site was being adminstrated....Now without Cliff, beginner debaters don't have a figure to look up to.

Cliff was a mentor and superior. Now, he's anonymous on this website...

I just checked i seems cliff is no longer active how could this be?

I have been considering that but feel that someone might say "He was con and stated Islam is the best religion therefore since he was con he was arguing against that". Maybe i'll ask Cliff.Stamp, he should know what to do.

Reasons for voting decision: Con never made arguments, whilst Pro did, so arguments to Pro. Source go to Pro because they helped make his argument (and Con provided none). Conduct to Pro for Con's round forfeits.
