The meaning of life for all individuals is NOT equal.

"- I wish we had more of a chance to delve into this philosophically, because I argue that the life of someone doing "good" for society has just as much MEANING as that of a person in solitary for their whole life. But perhaps another time :)" http://www.debate.org/debate/7912/ Alright, I figure that it is time that we debate this subject. I am of the opinion that the meaning and significance of one's life is constantly changing, and that it is not equal for all humans on Earth. A man...

Catholicism is more morally admirable than Protestantism

I will argue here that Catholicism is more morally admirable than Protestantism, as a whole. In the tenets in which the two differ, Catholicism is more admirable. It is more consistent in its stances, preaches better morals, and its principles have more positive ramifications than those of Protestantism. I will go into more detail in the next rounds. My opponent must debate that Protestantism is more morally admirable than Catholicism. Thank you to whomever accepts this challenge....

Christianity has been more beneficial than detrimental to mankind.

Well, this will be the second challenge for this debate, as my first opponenet failed to post a first argument, unfortunately. Oh well. Anyway, here I would like to argue exactly what it says in the title: Christianity has overall been more of a benefit to mankind than it has been a detriment. No partisan arguments may be used here, e.g. abortion, gay marriage, etc. Those are partisan issues that require their own debate. In this debate, I would ask my opponent to stick to concrete exa...

Abortion

I will argue that abortion should never be illegal, and that pro-lifers use seriously flawed, illogical arguments to support pro-life views. Contention 1: Life is not sacred Contention 2: Human life does not start at conception Contention 3: A fetus is not a person I will basically forfeit the rest of round one and be limited to rounds two and three to make my points. Happy arguing!...

laissez-faire should exist but does not

well to start off, it's french for "leave alone". obviously pertaining to the government and its interference of the people. typically it's the separation of economy and state. but our government has forgotten that our nation was to be established on a laissez-faire capitalistic system that would allow people to actually have rights without the government overlooking each individual thoroughly. do you think we have a state of laissez-faire in our nation? on paper, capitalism seems like the on...

"In God We Trust" on the currency is unconstitutional and should be removed.

Aziar44

The God in "In God We Trust" on United States currency is a clear violation of the establishment clause of the US constitution and as such is unconstitutional. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;" "In God We Trust" is a religious statement and the United States government has no right to make religious statements on our behalf....

Christianity does not support determinism

Aziar44

Free will and determinism have been debated back and forth for centuries. But I wonder which one is better suited for Christianity. To me, it seems as though free will is a better match for Christianity. The Bible says that we have the choice to turn away from or accept God and Jesus and there are numerous other examples where it seems as though we have free will. I don't want to get too much into the free will vs. determinism debate directly, just which viewpoint is more compatible with Christi...
