(of an argument) so constructed that if the premises are jointly asserted, the conclusion cannot be denied without contrad...

Intelligent design is not a scientific theory.

Biowza

I affirm that Intelligent design is not a scientific theory. [Definitions] Intelligent Design- Is the assertion that the universe and its features are explained by design by an omnipotent power (such as a god). Scientific Theory- A logically self-consistent model or framework for describing the behavior of a related set of natural or social phenomena. It originates from or is supported by experimental evidence. In this sense, a theory is a systematic and formalized expression of all pr...

The Trinity: A False Doctrine

SnoopyDaniels
Renzzy

As far as I'm concerned, the burden of proof is on my opponent to show why, for example, scriptures like Deuteronomy 6:4 ("Hear O Israel, the Lord your God is One Lord") should not be taken at face value. My opponent, I hope, will excuse any sarcasm or irreverence that I may fail to repress, as my family and I have had rather bad experiences revolving around the Trinity doctrine. Ours and several other families were forced to leave a homeschool group because we refused to sign a "confession of f...

The Trinity Doctrine: Three Different Persons, All Equally God, All the Same God

Renzzy
PublicForumG-d

Fist of all, I would like to apologize for the unusually long title. I needed more space in order to encompass the topic I would like to discus clearly. Thank you to whoever accepts this debate! The Trinity Doctrine is a rather controversial topic, and there are amy people on both sides of the argument. I believe that The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. I believe that they are all equally God, and that they all make up one God. With that, I will allow my oppon...

Gay marriage is natural, necessary and inevitable.

If there is one social issue that defines our times, it is certainly the issue of gay marriage. Stunning as it might seem, in the few decades after Stonewall the gay rights movement has finally gained enough momentum to not only raise the issue of marriage equality, but also win the debate in various countries, states, and cities around the globe. Centuries of progress after the Age of Enlightenment in Europe have brought us the most sophisticated, fair and free social structure of all times - d...

This debate will kick-off a series of Debates I will be hosting to convince people that the "Christian Right" (conservative Christians) are wrong. This is to expose the myth that Republican beliefs fit with Christian fundamental teachings. This Debate: The Death Penalty I am Con, so I will allow my opponent the opportunity to open the Debate. Thank you, and Good luck to my opponent....

The Bible Teaches Total Depravity

Renzzy
Cryingwolf334

I would like the contender of this debate to debate from the standpoint of a Christian if they are not a Christian, assuming the Bible is true. I believe that the Bible teaches total depravity, and that man is therefore totally depraved. I believe that man cannot work his way to perfection. If you believe that the Bible teaches otherwise, please accept, and I look forward to the debate! Thanks, Renzzy...

Predestination Unto Salvation

Renzzy
SchinkBR

I would like a fellow Christian to accept this debate, but if not, you must assume there is a God, and that the Bible is the true, infallible word of God for this debate. I believe that predestination is taught throughout the Bible, and would like my opponent to state their reasons for believing otherwise. With that, I will await an opponent. Thanks, Renzzy...

Atheism is based on "faith"

Logos
Renzzy

From Merriam-Webster: Faith: 1): belief and trust in and loyalty to God (2): belief in the traditional doctrines of a religion b (1): firm belief in something for which there is no proof None of these definitions apply to atheism. Quite the opposite; atheism is the absence of faith. To say "Prove it" when faced with a fantastical claim is not having faith in the claim not being true. It is simply saying, "I am not going to assume this statement is true until it is proven." Atheism is the...

Predestination

Renzzy
PreacherFred

I saw that you were previously engaged in a debate on this topic, and it wanted to challenge you to a debate on the same topic, because it is one that interests me greatly. I have always wanted to debate somebody who is learned in the Bible on this subject, and I finally have the chance! YAY! I am going to enjoy this debate, and I am sure that I will learn how to be a better debtor in the future. I believe that the Bible teaches predestination, and that believing in free will is much like believ...
