God will let you go your own way all the way to Hell

LifeMeansGodIsGood

The Challenge title says it all for the first round argument. God will let you go to Hell. If you think God won't let you go to Hell, please tell me why. "God does not exist" is not the debate, the debate is not about the existence of God. This debate is about you going to Hell and God not stopping you if you don't care that you are going there.This debate is not about "Hell does not exist" or "God does not exist". This debate is about why God should not let you go to Hell or wh...

God created the earth

The proof that backs evolution is horrible. The very beginning is flawed. For example, the theory of evolution, states that life can only come from life. Yet, where did it all start? The con must explain why evolution's beginning is valid. May the best man win....

Free Will

Aerogant

With regard to whether human behaviour is a predetermined and inevitable path, or is a free choice in which no forces have an influence upon, humans, as which all other animals, have free choice. For example, since we have the ability to choose one thing over the other, choice is self-contained and not determined in any supernatural sense. Moreover, since humans perform all actions, gain knowledge from, believe in certain faiths, live in specific areas, have distinct hi...

God Loves Atheists

LifeMeansGodIsGood
AlternativeDavid

Atheists say there is no God, but God still loves them and wants them to go to heaven. God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. God does not want atheists to burn in Hell; he is being kind to them, trying to bring them to trust Him so they can be saved from Hell. Time is running out for them, but as long as they have time in the world, there is still hope that they can be saved....

Would morality be practical in a society where security and material needs are provided for?

ayayanouvet
Benshapiro

Morality, or a sense of justice, would not be practically necessary in a civilization in which survival and protection needs are provided to all, given that the only function of said civilization would be to care for its citizens from cradle-to-grave, in return for their labor. The ultimate nanny state. If the bureaucracy does not come into the power of tyrants, then there should be no reason why the system should not be allowed to perpetuate itself, especially one with freedom of movement....
