Is The Christian God Real?

KingMario457
Zaradi

I would simply like to start with the question, "Is God real?" I am, of course pro, meaning I believe in God, and I argue in his favor. So, do I have any proof of God? Scientifically, there is more proof for God, than there is against him. Firstly, look out a window. You see trees, people, animals, etc. All of that had to start somewhere. Personally, I think it takes more faith to believe that everything outside of your window started as "nothing" than to believe that a greater power put it all...

On balance, a ban on civilian firearm ownership would be beneficial to the United States

UchihaMadara

DK and I have been planning to do this debate for a couple weeks now. Standard debate rules apply; first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. I doubt any of that will be a problem, here. A quick note on the resolution-- the debate will NOT be revolving around the implementation of a gun ban; it will be about whether or not the effects of a gun ban which has already been implemented are positive. I look forward to an excellent debate :D...

The United States Federal Government should legalize child porn Wylted vs Bluesteel and Mikal

Wylted

FRAMEWORK I'm advocating for the full legalization of child porn.

Did you for the forced and irreversible surgical castration of sex offenders?

PawelK

About two years ago ago here in Poland, where I live, nasty crime occurred. Mother gave 9 year old son with emotional problems on the observations to a psychiatric hospital, the child was brutally anally raped by a 16 year old degenerate.

Derek Jeter's final home game against the Orioles was rigged so that he would hit a walk off

imabench

Ladies and Gentlemen, I, the great Imabench, am temporarily returning to DDO temporarily to debate against Birdlandmemories, who on facebook claimed that Derek Jeter's last game against the Orioles at home in Yankee Stadium, was in fact RIGGED so that it would have a happy ending. I engaged with him on facebook over this topic, admittedly with my usual lack of civility when I see something utterly stupid, and after a while he cowardly blocked me halfway into the argument just so that he coul...

Does god really Exist? If so, why does he not care what we believe in?

Lel-Derp

For Example: Ever noticed that somebody who didn't believe in god never get punished so severely? (Except by the crazy religious people). What do you think about believing in god? Is it a good thing not to let a make-believe being cloud your judgments? Or is it the right thing to let such a deity lead your decisions?...
