the christian portrayal of god is hypocritical.

numa

christian teaching is that god is responsible for all life here on earth. physically, it takes a man and a woman (or a sperm and an egg, to be more PC) to create a child. however, without god's influence, that life will never come to be. that is the christian belief. christians also believe that god is omnipotent, that he sees and knows all, and this is supported numerous times throughout the bible. for instance, philippians 4:3 and revelation 3:5 say that the moment you place your faith in j...

Same sex marriage should be legal everywere in the U.S.A.

tmf_luvs_debate

SAME SEX MARRIAGE What is happiness? Happiness is the quality or state of being happy, content, and joyful. I believe that every person deserves a fair chance at happiness, and when you take away the right to same sex marriage you are robbing a good chunk of people of the chance to be happy. Of course you don't have to marry someone for your relationship to progress but if same sex couples are legally aloud to date then why not marry? It does not affect anyone but themselves and if they love...

Hollister is Overrated

kenicks

There are many designer stores out there for our teenage (and, some pre-teens) to enjoy; Abercrombie and Fitch, Aeropostale, American Eagle, Old Navy, Steve And Barry's, South Pole, and The Limited to name a few. However, one name stands out from all of these designer stores-Hollister. Owned by Abercrombie and Fitch, this store is made to appeal to both males and females, this "surfer-friendly" store sells products such as Polo shirts, t-shirts, jeans, hoodies, and other basic teen wear. How...

The Iraq War has been a success.

ReaganConservative

The Iraq War has been a success. Plain and simple. To deny this statement, one would either have to be ignorant or find pleasure in disregarding the truth. Allow me to explain why this war is successful: First and foremost, Saddam Hussein, a homicidal maniac who slaughtered hundreds of thousands of people, is dead. Saddam's sons, Uday and Qusay, the ones who ran the rape and torture chambers, are dead. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is dead. Abu Laith al-Libi, a top al Qaeda leader, is dead. Muammar Ga...

Teachings of Creationism instead of Evolution in public schools.

eyeleapy

I don't think Creationism should be taught in public schools because it can offend other religious people and/or Athiest people. I dislike the fact that so many people try to convert them. I say it's wrong. If anything, most if not all wars are caused by religion. I'm not saying I'm Athiest, I just don't think people should preach in a school environment, especially if one views God in the Babtist way and some students are Methodists or Catholics. Evolution should be taught because it's only a t...

God is Real and Evolution and the Big Bang Theory Aren't

polka-dots323

A lot of people say, well there is no proof for God, so how can he be real? Well,how logical really is the idea of evolution and the Big Bang Theory? How could there be nothing, and then something? Nothing+Nothing=Nothing...And even if there was an atom,where did the atom come from? Try explaining that. I have many pointns that go against the idea of evolution. Just think about life. Think of how wonderful life is. Just life itself is a miracle. Tell me where and how the planets formed and the u...

As it Stands, Atheism is the Logical Conclusion

Logos

I have had this debate many times, both on this site and off. I hope someone will approach this topic seriously. Put simply, my main argument is this: Until some demonstrated, repeatable evidence can be found that definitively proves a deity exists, it should be assumed to not exist. The burden is not on the atheist to prove that there is no God , but the other way around. If someone wants to claim that God does exist, they should carry some proof with their claims. The classic example of...

Global Warming exists and mankind is responsible for it.

blond_guy

I hope there are takers, I've seen some members that do not believe in the global warming theory so I'd like to make it clear. 1)Global Warming exists. If you are not ok with that statement please say so. 2)Humans are the ones responsible for it. There is plenty of evidence that shows humans emit large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. There hasn't been so much greenhouse gas carbon dioxide in the atmosphere sine 650,000 years ago. 3) Many find it natural that the earth will cool ba...
