I don't believe that women should be aloud to get breast implants or a breast reduction for the simple reason that God made us the way that we are suppose to be. I am think because that is the way I am suppose to be. I have brown hair because I am suppose to. My eyes are brown, because that is the way that I am suppose to be. If our bodies were suppose to be any different then they are that is the way that we would have been born.

Your entire argument is based on the premise that God exists at all. That alone makes your argument illogical, as premises have to either be proven or at least agreed upon by those involved in the argument.

Even IF God did exist, it is agreed in most modern religions that God gave human beings free will. One can therefore infer that such a creator would not want human beings to infringe upon or restrict the free will of other human beings.

Well first off.... I wont judge you, but My God does exist. Secondly, God put us here, and we can use our free will to make all of the decisions that we want to, but that doesn't make it right. We take the paths that we want to, they are not always the paths that he chooses. But we also have to keep him in mind. If your mother told you not to go to your friends house and you did anyway, that is your free will. That is not what was in the plan. Then something bad happens, now you wish you would have listened to your mother, God lets us make mistakes, that is why he said that no one is perfect, everyone sins. He is the only one who is perfect. He chose how each one of us look. He gave us this life that we live. No do you listen to him and do what you know is right, or do you go off and "go to your friends house" anyway. Well if you chose your friends house I hope that God be with you to make sure that you are safe even though you did not listen.

But you did not simply state that it was immoral to get breast augmentations. You said, and I quote: "I don't believe that women should be aloud [sic] to get breast implants or a breast reduction for the simple reason that God made us the way that we are suppose [sic] to be." It is my contention that by not allowing a woman to get breast augmentations, one would be infringing upon said woman's "God-given" free will. According to the Bible (I am assuming that you are a Christian), that is not your place. According to Christians, God himself does not infringe upon the free will of humans. What makes you think that you have the right to do what even your deity does not?

I am only restating my argument, as you failed to even address it.

Furthermore, your argument has implications that go well beyond breast augmentation, or even any cosmetic surgery. If we follow your argument that people shouldn't be allowed to change their bodies becasue God made their bodies, that would disallow the following as well: hair dye (as you said, God gave you the color hair he intended), hair cuts (if God wanted your hair shorter, he wouldn't have made it grow so long), cosmetic contacts (same as hair dye), any device to correct one's vision (if God wanted you to see properly, he would have made you see properly), clothing (you were born naked, so what makes you think God wants you any other way?), and exercise for the point of building one's body or losing weight (God made your muscles a certain size already and made you fat). I could go on, but I think I've made my point. Would you outlaw those things as well, or does your God have a particular fixation on women's breasts?

It's pretty obvious that my opponent has either realized that she has been defeated or did not have sufficient interest to post her argument within the three days she was allotted. I think that the winner here is pretty obvious.

some people are difficult to argue with, simply on the basis that they have never learned how to think correctly.

"Well first off.... I wont judge you, but My God does exist."
~What a joke of a premise this is... lol. but I won't judge her as along as she also accepts that My Flying Spaghetti Monster exists.

anyway nice job Maya9

They say mothers know best but I don't think that going to your friends house is really that big of a deal.
