The Argument is such: I believe time has to have a starting point. In other words, it cannot be infinite. Awaiting a challenger......

Should Creationism be taught in public schools as fact?

Overall the educational system around the world places most of it's information to the kids as proven facts in the science department. Of course some have more understanding of science in their academics than others due to their economic situation (developed, developing, less developed). But the world of science has been almost always pure fact except for when it becomes corrupted for corporate or political reasons. But in the academics of children it remains relatively untouched. Which brings t...

The Fine-Tuning Argument For Design Succeeds

TheMagi

The fine-tuning of the universe (by fine-tuning I mean that which involves strictly the different parameters and physical constants, not about designed life versus Darwinism) for the existence of intelligent life is often posited as a reason to infer a designer of the initial conditions of the univserse. The argument is as follows: P1: The fine-tuning of the universe is due to either physical necessity, chance, or design P2: The fine-tuning of the universe is not due to physical necessity...

What is God?

Sidex
TheMagi

My argument's purpose is to define what God is. Hopefully, we have a better picture of what God is after this debate. The opponent may choose to make his/her case first or pass the first argument to me. There is technically no pro/con in this debate, as this is merely an exchange of ideas and/or beliefs that reveal truth. Any religious text may be considered to help define God, but know that any religious text is subject to interpretation. This is my only warning. I know how to prove a common Ch...

Jesus is not "the" Son of God - we all are.

Here I argue that Yeshua (Jesus) of the Holy Bible is not the only Son of God. Different gospels were written at different times after the death of Yeshua. I say this to say that the assumption that this claim relies upon is that the closer to the death of Yeshua they were written, the more reliable the Gospels are...

Assumption 1: All natural things had a starting point within time. Proof of Assumption 1: The only rebuttal to this assumption would be to prove that all natural things did not have a starting point within time. If all natural things did not have a starting point within time, then time does not have a starting point, because time constrains all natural things, hence "starting point within time." If time has no starting point, then there has been an infinite amount of moments that have occurr...

There is no God

This will be a very quick (5 minute each round) debate. I would like someone who is an atheist to give me there top reason why they don't believe in God, and then I will attempt to refute it and present why that is not a reason for not believing in God, and maybe, that it is actually a reason for believing in God....

Is Christianity true?

I believe Christianity is true because it seems the most plausible of any belief in existence (including atheism) and no one has yet convinced me otherwise....
