Is it logical to say that Christians have a more negative view on life than atheists?

Rational_Thinker9119

If it brings someone more comfort to believe that this can't be the only life there is, then that must mean that it would bring them less comfort to believe that this is the only life we get to live. This means that they must be the ones with a negative view on life, because if they weren't, then why would they feel so much more comfort in believing in a completely different life that may not even exist in reality? It seems the answer to that question is because they can't grasp the beauty o...

celibacy

unfortunate

celibacy is right, pre-marital sex wrong. I will argue con/Against this. I will not argue the reverse but simply that celibacy is not the 'right' thing for people to strive for against their inclinations. Also we are talking about a consensual environment, not cases involving abuse....

Guns raises crime and is un-constitutional

alex1018

1. Guns raise crime because it is common sense that gun will kill people. I am for guns but want to take the pro side. Guns are bad and raise crime because you can shoot people with them. Also the UN wants to get rid of guns, and their a peace organization. So therefore guns must be bad. 2. Concealed carry raises crime too. That lets people hide their gun, so if it is hidden then you can kill people easier. 3. It is un-constitutional because it is about a well regulated militia. Conclusi...

His personal opinion is that abortion is good; lots of people should abort. Requiring abort...
