Predestination

Renzzy

I saw that you were previously engaged in a debate on this topic, and it wanted to challenge you to a debate on the same topic, because it is one that interests me greatly. I have always wanted to debate somebody who is learned in the Bible on this subject, and I finally have the chance! YAY! I am going to enjoy this debate, and I am sure that I will learn how to be a better debtor in the future. I believe that the Bible teaches predestination, and that believing in free will is much like believ...

Drug prohibition should be interpreted to violate 1st and 9th ammendment rights.

Rob1Billion

I believe that prohibition should be ruled unconstitutional, in the future, by the supreme court. My basis for this reasoning is the first and ninth ammendments of the bill of rights. Amendment IX - The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. This amendment, in and of itself, does not lead to the conclusion of my thesis. I am using it here for a specific reason, and that is to dodge any argument along th...

This website should have a means of communication other than a debate.

You see, if it did, then I woldn't have to start a debate with you to tell you I found you here. Or maybe there is another way but I haven't though of it yet. The latter is probably true....

SSM should be Legalized

OhioForHillary

Arguments are made that GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered) people should not be aloud to raise children. First of all, this argument is null and void. Statistics have shown that children raised in GLBT families are just as well off and possibly better off then those raised in straight families. And no, children raised by GLBT parents aren't always GLBT. All respectable medical, psychological, and children based organizations have come out stating that children are all of the above...

The United States of America is the greatest country in the world.

hattopic

Over the past several years I've been told by numerous people that the US is the greatest country in the world. However, I've never heard why. I don't know what's so great about us, but maybe you do. (Greatest - Highest in quality; Superior to others;)...

Utilitarianism functions as a paradigm

Utilitarianism gets a bad rap. I think it carries a lot of popular misconceptions which I would like to clear up. Under its correct use, utility works fine. Utilitarianism is the decision-making process which defines a just action as one whose consequences will maximize pleasure or good things. It is not the greatest good for the greatest number. I will clarify upon request. Thanks....

Religion Science and Philosophy should not be separated, they all point to a common and real truth.

joe.mullet

I think that religion science Philosophy art and all other important studies and exploration to point to a real truth that should be enjoyed by everyone. A lot of people say that religion is fine art is fine science is fine but they don't normally agree and you shouldn't mix them and even more extreme people will speculate that what is true for you is not true for me and that truth its self is relative. If this is so then what is to come of us? If we simply create or own truth then why is the wo...

Education should be funded by vouchers granted to individual families, not public schools.

clsmooth

It is no secret that public schools in this country are floundering. Across the board, American students are slaughtered on international performance tests. Clearly, there is a problem. One look at the schools provided by the government clearly shows why. Complacency. Public schools have a de facto monopoly on education in America. They are supported entirely by involuntarily-given tax dollars by every taxpayer, whether their child attends the school or not. Even if a parent decides to send t...

Being a Christian does not negate being in support of the Death Penalty.

willact723

I am under the impression that as a Christian, it is wrong to be in favor of the Death Penalty. I believe a great argument comes from the 6 chapter of Luke, verse 37: "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Does this not speak to Jesus' entire message while on earth? Judgement is not reserved for us, but for God alone. Granted, we need to keep order on earth, but doesn't the ultimate judgement of death negat...

The U.S. economy is a fraud based on the Federal Reserve System of fiat money and legal-tender laws.

clsmooth

Virtually every transaction that takes place in the United States involves the exchange of goods or services for U.S. dollars, which, in reality, are "Federal Reserve Notes" (just check your currency). Where do these Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) come from? Few of us ever stop to ask. The answer is: debt. When you deposit $100 in the bank, your bank may lend $90 of it, even though you can come back and claim your full $100 at any time. When someone borrows $90 from your bank and takes the chec...
