Should consensual sterilization be free?

KJVPrewrather
philochristos

I say yes. I'm a woman, and I was sterilized. I had my proceedure for free, and this will save me hundreds of dollars worth of birth control over my lifetime, and I don't want children. It is a one time proceedure, and only requires birth control for 12 weeks, or 1 week if a man has a vasectomy....

Is Christianity...the Anti-Christ?

REVERENDREAL
philochristos

IS CHRISTIANITY...THE ANTI-CHRIST? We all know that Jesus was not a Christian. He was born in the Jewish faith. We know that Christianity did not even come about until some time after the death of Jesus. Some say the following year after his death while other say about three hundred years later. We know from the Bible, the great story about the rich man meeting Jesus. He approached Jesus and said. Good Master, how can I get into Heaven? The first thing Jesus shouted at him was.. Don't...

Can we use logic to prove logic?

NKaloms
philochristos

I have read that many philosophers (Gorgias, C.S. Lewis, and others) believe that logic cannot be proved, and that we must assume (have faith in) that logic just works. I find this extremely interesting. At first I was distressed at this thought, for how can we know for certain that anything is certain if can't know that logic is certain. I wrestled with this for a while until I came to an interesting conclusion. The statement that "we cannot know anything for certain, including logic" is in fac...

If The Universe Has A Cause, That Cause Is A Personal Mind

philochristos

I would like to debate Philochristos on this subject as I feel he is one of the most skilled Theists on this site. In this debate we will assume that the universe began to exist, and has a cause. It will be Pro's job to show that this cause is a personal mind, and my job to show why Pro's reasoning doesn't stand up to critical scrutiny. In Pro's last round he will simply put "no argument will be posted, as agreed." My opponent's first arguments will be posted in round one; no acceptan...

omniscience and omnipotence equals no freewill

philochristos

not going to use 8,000 characters. everything will be taken in clear black and white. commonsense must be needed, thanks. use your brain! ;) If God is all-knowing then He would have already known if you were going to Heaven or Hell before He made you in the first place. He knew every single action you were going to commence before He created you. He knew if you were going to love the world before He made you. How can you say you have freewill (addressed to believers), if there is a source of...

Abortions should be free, safe and available all through the US

Leftshark
philochristos

All throughout the US women struggle to find a clinic for a safe and free abortion. I believe that those women who wish to have an abortion, within reasonable time, should be able to have an abortion. Reasonable time meaning within the legal limit, since I believe that late term abortion is indeed wrong. However, an abortion within the first, let us say 12 weeks, is not unreasonable. I do understand some people have religious views that are against abortion, but their views should not aff...

The Morality of Abortion

PossieTV
philochristos

This debate will center around the question, "At what point in a human pregnancy is abortion acceptable if at all?". I will be taking a conservative position on the pro-life movement. My assertion is that life begins at conception and at no point in a pregnancy is abortion acceptable. Rules -------- 1. Be mature and professional 2. Use the terms pro-life movement and pro-choice movement (Use of terms like pro-abortion, anti-abortion, anti-life, etc is unnecessary and could be considered ad...
