The theory of evolution is compatible with mainstream religion

Tatarize
killa_connor

Modern mainstream theological thought is not compatible with evolution. Not simply inconsistent with the Genesis' literal account but evolution itself is undermining to the core claims religions mainstream religions make. 1) You are special. 2) God created life (with or without evolution). 3) Perfect/Good creation. A good understanding of evolution is deadly to these claims. Denial to these claims is deadly to religion. A) Evolution does not hold that you are special. One of the def...

Should the Genesis account of creation be read literally?

This is one of those "nagging" questions that Christians, Jews, and Muslims all have to deal with at some point. I can't say that I have a sure answer at this point but I am surely leaning toward "yes". First, let's define the bounds of the assertion. I'm speaking of the assertions that the bible makes about the genesis of the universe, the Earth, Sun, and us. My core sticking point is the story of Adam and Eve. I would be inclined to opt for a more liberal interpretation accept for this one...

In defense of McCarthy

SolaGratia
killa_connor

My position on McCarthy is this. I regard it as the only sensible position, but it's actually in the middle of the spectrum. As they say, the truth of the matter always lies in the middle. I. McCarthy, who had access to State Department and FBI files, knew what he was talking about. He was right in most of his accusations. II. His conduct, however, left a lot to be desired. He was often confrontational. Not to the witnesses he was questioning; in fact he was in general courteous to them,...

Senator McCarthy was right in many/all of his accusations

SolaGratia

Even people who have nothing to do with politics know what politics did to Joe McCarthy. McCarthy has been portrayed as a "brawler"; making pointless (and baseless) accusations for his own benefit. For this, he was maligned to the point of being some sort of deranged bogeyman. "It's McCarthyism!!" "Well you're just a McCarthyite!" "Go to bed or McCarthy will get you!" and so on. He was cast from the Senate and his name was ruined. Everything you've ever heard about McCarthy is wrong. With...

Missionary style is the best way to have sex.

Granted this is all subjective but I think that missionary style is the best way to have sex. I'm not saying that one's sex life should involve exclusively the missionary position. Good sex involves a variety of sex positions and experimentation but this isn't to suggest that there isn't a single superior position. I'll present my basic arguments for this opening section and I hope the Con can offer an alternative position to contend with my assertion. 1.) Missionary is more comfortable for b...

Atheists are less moral then Christians.

American's increasing acceptance of religious diversity does not extend to those who don't believe in a god, according to a national survey by researchers in the University of Minnesota's department of sociology. As a matter of fact, this study revealed that Atheists/Agnostics are the most distrusted minority in America! I find the suggestion that atheists are somehow "less moral" then religious people to be insulting. There is no empirical evidence to support this claim and I think religious...

Legalize Marijuana.

killa_connor
Oberbeck

I haven't seen this done on debate.org yet, so I thought it would be interesting to hear some opinions on the issue. This debate will probably have many different types of arguments (legal, health, and economic), so I'm going to start Round 1 off with a whole mess of arguments in favor for the legalization of marijuana and we'll see where it goes from there =). The first and most basic reason why I think marijuana should be legalized is because it's a matter of basic autonomy! From a philosop...

The Collapse of US Hegemony is Imminent

killa_connor

I maintain that US hegemony, which has been the single norm in the international system since the collapse of the Soviet Union is in its twilight and will soon collapse unless certain policies--specifically economic policies--are changed. First, the US has been one of the primary agents in international action since the end of the Second World War, and in the time period since the collapse of the Soviet Union has been the single most influential actor in the international system. This to me s...
