So basically this idea appeared in my head, about an hour ago. I was outside and it is sunny about 62 degrees, and wind chimes were blowing. And I thought the beauty of opinions is everywhere on debate.org, so why not have an opinion debate.

The rules are as follows, no debating the opponents opinions, no posting in the comment section of the debate (there is no need for you to expand your opinion or add more opinions), and be creative and let the fellow debaters hear what you have to say. No sources, or citing your opinions, let it come off the top of your head.

In my opinion, music & art are the most beautiful gifts that we've been given, be creative.

In my opinion, sports are a way to escape all problems in the real world. its just you they game and your opponent, and how you are going to beat him/her to achieve victory.

In my opinion, God isn't a being, God is harmony. We spend our whole life trying to reach harmony, have harmony, and be harmonious. And we will push whatever obstacle that we face to get to harmony. This is where all the violence in the world has come from, people trying to push past obstacles to reach "harmony".

In my opinion, the art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.

In my opinion, finding the truth is one of the hardest things to uncover. If you can't find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it? I also believe that quotes from the Buddha, Gandhi, and the Dalai Lama are some of the most inspirational quotes known to man. But hey, that's just my opinion ;)

In my opinion life is to precious to waste. Do everything you can do while you can. explore and travel. you have one life. spend it wisley, when its time to die have you can say you didn't wase your life.

I would like to thank you for making this fun debate. maybe we can do it again.

Samantha, by saying that God is not a being, you insult almost all world religions. Just saying, try to be more careful in future debates. I don't want you to lose points for offending people.
