Racist Minute Men should be stopped from killing thousands of Hispanics/ burying them in mass graves


There are racist everywhere. I do not care about people's personal opinions. I care about human lives being taken. Human rights violators commit thousands of crimes. Should we as humans, with a belief that everyone has a basic minimum right, allow this to continue? Should we condone what they are doing and in return do it ourselves? I mean if we allow it, is that not the same as doing it ourselves?...

Free-will is a more irrational belief than young Earth Creationism


The atheist-controlled or anti-religious media has come out to attack Creationism, but not free-will believers even though based on modern science free-will is much more of an irrational belief than denying evolution or the arguments young Earth Creationists use. The reason why most people don't know this is because the media and society hasn't come out to attack free-will believers like how they've attacked Creationists. Atheists haven't made documentaries or web sites and stuff about it...

Free will does not exist in the mind.


People claim that there is no such thing as free will. Everything is because of fate and so. Maybe free will does/does not exist in the reality. But now I want to start with something different. I have made this debate impossible to accept, and if you find a way to accept it then you have lost this debate. To whoever is interested please comment below.This debate will start after 1 month or less. I am very busy in November. The BoP is shared clearly. 72 hours to argue. 10,000 ch...

There are outstanding discrepancies of moral justice/injustice that appear to be betwixt and between of resolution that are subsequent to the act of torture. The foundation of torture has spiraled ethical controversies, concerning the righteous boundaries of such procedures and whether they should be acceptably retained. In agreement with those who are in favor of tortuous acts up to the degree that it does not conflict with total morale, we can concur that torture is performed centrally as a me...
