Over the years I have notice that Christians are foolish enough to draw themselves closer to an imaginary source of fake information. What makes this worse is that they will never accept any faults within the religion. What the supposed almighty being 'God' is accurate and 100% correct in their eyes. Notice how I said 'Their eyes', when in actual fact they have no physical evidence that 'God' or any 'Character' within the bible existed. They use the Bible as an answer to everything. The Bible is a book, which does not give it any right to be reality, unless the events occur during a time of actual recording. I could visit my local book store and pick u a copy of 'The Grinch who stole Christmas' and by doing so does this convert the text from fiction to fact? I'm looking for a strong argument with valid points. I have much more I would like to share, so please do not skip past this discussion.

Greetings Pro and DDO, its been a while since I last debated and so I decided to try a topic I am more familiar with. I noted a lack of definitions and even a resolution by Pro, so I hope he doesn't mind if I make my own.

Motion: Christians are stubborn with no right to be.

Definitions: Stubborn will be defined as unreasonably unyeilding and closed minded. [1] Pro will also have to argue that Christians are wrong, in order for them to be stubborn. Note the word unreasonably in the definition, this is a word that Pro must justify as applicable to the views of Christians. Also, Pro doesn't have to argue that every single christian is stubborn, just that most generally are.


Go for it pro.

can you correctly define stubborn off the top of your head? If you need to look it up for confirmation, then you have a problem, otherwise, you are justified.

All the Christians I know personally are stubborn (of course I know there are many that aren't). Would have made an interesting debate.

That was one wierd debate. Oh, wait. It doesn't count as a debate if someone forfeits without any explanation. Why start a debate if you admit defeat in one round?

Good attempt by Smithereens to draw a resolution to debate from Pro's opening remarks.

You need to make a clear resolution so people will know what they're supposed to be debating. For example, are you trying to defend the claim that "Christians are stubborn"?
