The existence of God, or an omnipotent being is probable.

There is substantial amount of evidence that a omnipotent being must exist, completely disproving Atheism, although not disproving the beliefs shared by agnostics....

God does not exist.

SoSilly

I will keep this short and simple. There is no proof for God. There is an infinite amount of things we can't prove/disprove at the moment. This includes God. Some of these things will mean God doesn't exist. This suggests the chances of god existing with out any evidence or reasoning is infinitesimal. This basically means there is as good as no chance for God existing....

Jesus Christ Existed As A Historical Figure

MattPalumbo

After doing some searching, I was unable to find a debate on this topic so I thought that I'd start the first. My main arguments for the existence of Jesus as a historical figure will be based on the testimony of Josephus and Tacitus, as I don't have room to discuss other sources and the NT's authorship. Non Biblical Source 1: Josephus The works of the first-century historian Josephus have been held in high regard by Christians throughout history. Josephus was a first century Jewish histor...

Adopting a pet from an animal shelter is better than buying one from a pet shop?

debatefreak22

I need practice for my debate class. My 1st point 1st) You'll save a life Did you know that 3-4 million cats and dogs die a year in shelters in America because no one will adopt them? 2) Fees are less expensive Another advantage to shelter adoptions is that the fees are usually much less than the purchase price of an animal from a pet store or breeder. And your new pet is more likely to be vaccinated, de-wormed, and spayed or neutered. 3) You won't be supporting puppy mills and pet s...

The Supposed "Ground Zero Mosque" should be built.

jat93

My stance is presented in the title of the debate. I will present my case in several manners: 1) The "Ground Zero Mosque" is, in fact, not actually a Ground Zero Mosque. 2) The builders of the "Mosque" have a constitutional right to do so, and to prevent them from building it would be unconstitutional. They have the law on their side. 3) It is both Un-American and straight out immoral. The moral components: a) The "rubbing salt on the wound" idea is incorrect and foolish. Furthermo...

Mandate a four day Work Week

blazingflame

It is essential that we mandate a four day workweek for the following reasons. >Reduction of health problems >Economically wise >Energy efficiency and environmental friendly. • Going back to my first reason "Reduction of health problems"; America is a stress filled country. This is a growing problem that must be resolved. Every day, more and more people die from anxiety and many commit suicide. Suicidal seems to be the only resolution to tensions in numerous people's lives. We must see t...

There is a higher power/god

ArtfulDodger

Scientists say that the Big Bang created the Universe and everything in it. This means that before the Big Bang there was nothing. The Big Bang is when particles collided. Where did these particles come from when there was nothing to begin with? If the Big Bang Theory created the three-dimensional space we know and love, how can particles exist before this was created? Also, before space-time, there was nothing, try and imagine nothing. This means that particles came from no where and coll...
