I believe that the Bible is outdated. It was written thousands of years ago and times have changed. Either we need to update the bible somehow, or we need to disregard some of the content.

Con

Well the bible is all true things you cannot update something when there is nothing to change so it may be old but everything in there is still true and why take oit a piece of history.

Everything is true? OK. Women are not allowed to hold any power whatsoever. Also, no shell fish for you. We have dozens of women in the government. and I don't know about you, but I enjoy some shrimp every once in a while. Those are just two of the hundreds of examples of ways that the bible is outdated. To quote a song I heard, "we are paraphrasing a book written 3500 years ago..."

Open a bible near you. Go to Revelation 22:18-19
"For I testify unto every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

To "update" the bible, it to say that it's wrong. You are rejecting it because it's not "fit to your liking". Ask some people who have changed the bible or made their own version of the bible, Hitler made his own bible...oh...he killed himself. Well Joseph Smith made his own bible!- Oh wait...he was murdered by an angry mob..

Reasons for voting decision: I agree with the Con position, but this was a pathetic debate. Neither side did a good job, the only reason voting for Con is because it is my personal position. I would love the chance to debate this myself and actually give the debate dignity.

Reasons for voting decision: Although Con changed his views he should not have given up so quickly, but made better arguments as Pro did. Neither of the used any valid resources to back up their proof.
