YassineB messaged me in the comments of another debate, asking to debate this topic. I thought "sure"!

The debate is simple enough. Which religion, of the two, is more relevant in our present day 21st century, first world society. Which one offers more truth, and which one is "better".
Definition of Truth: the quality or state of being true
http://www.merriam-webster.com.........
Definition of True: agreeing with the facts ; not false
http://www.merriam-webster.com.........
Definition of Better: More attractive, appealing, effective, useful, etc.

Con agrees to argue for the side of Islam (any or all sects they wish), and I, Pro, agree to argue from the side of Buddhism (any or all sects I wish).The Burden of Proof is shared, and the first round is for acceptance only.For the voters and/or readers, I ask that you please keep an open mind, and consider the arguments, and not let your personal beliefs weigh in too much.For all of those involved in this debate, Con, readers, and voters, I thank you.

I thank Pro for instigating this suitable debate, & I accept his challenge.


Best of Luck, & may the better argument win.

I would like to thank Con for accepting the debate.

1.) Buddhism
(Note, I copies this from my Christianity Debate, as the opening argument is the exact same.)

The Buddhist Worldview


The Buddhist worldview is actually a very viable worldview. It can be summed up in the four seals of the Dharma:
1.) All compounded things are impermanent.
2.) All stained emotions are painful.
3.) All phenomena are empty.
4.) Nirvana is peace.

This worldview is a very viable one in our present day society, as it does not ask for zealous faith in a being, but merely following the way prescribed by it. I won't go into much detail, and this is not my whole argument, as this is just the first round.

Thanks Pro.


Unfortunately, I can’t present my opening argument this Round, I’ve been very busy lately. I am gonna have to postpone it to my next Round.

Thus, I’ll leave it in Pro’s hand.


Good Luck.

Since Con didn't have a chance to make an argument in the last round, I will make none in this. It will be fair that both of us made one argument so far. Thank you.

- This is me, I disabled my other account, this is a new one. So, I won't be continuing the debate, unless you wanna start a new one with this new account :)

- You left:
"which one is "better" (I left the word open to interpretation, as it will be up to the voters, based on the arguments that both sides give, to decide which one is better in their own terms, but will still define)."

:)

- I'd like you to define "Better", it's way too vague.

My bad, let me change that.

- Reread your opening Round, it doesn't mention Islam.

- & I insist you define better.
