The 1st amendment says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." . it does not explicitly mention the right to practice no religion.

maximally excellent being - a being that is omnipotent, omniscient, and morally perfect
maximally great being - a being that is maximally excellent in every possible world

2. A maximally great being exists in some possible world (P1)
3. A maximally great being exists in every possible world (P2; apply definition of maximally great being)
4. A maximally great being exists in the actual world (P3)
Could it? And by reform, I mean go through a complete personality change to ensure that it becomes much more tolerant of things it previously wasn't of (like the LGBT community and Atheism to name some)
This is my debate for Christianity Version 2. This is for those who believe Satan is the bad guy or is he the one who was unfairly punished by the real villain? That is up for you to decide. Please enjoy and if you don't like me or the debate, well I don't care to much...
I'll focus on Christianity. It's nothing more than campfire tales passed down through the generations. All the typical themes can be traced back to tracking the constellations and their patterns of movement. Jesus' birth with the three wise men? Astrological. Dying for three days and being resurrected? Astrological. It wasn't until emperor Constantine realized he could use people's beliefs as a tool of control that religion started to evolve. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jJSpujHhaGQ
Religious people often speak about choosing to accept God into one's heart, but is this really a choice? Is whether or not someone believes dependent on things they can't help, like the way their brain is built, the environment they were brought up in,knowledge, or indoctrination, or is there an element of choice? This could also extend to a free will debate, if your mind is set to work a certain way, then you are set to respond to things a certain way, you have no say in the mind you are born with, so perhaps you have no free will, just an illusion.If the correct answer is no, belief is not a choice, then surely this has ramifications for certain things... If there is a God, surely he couldn't blame atheists for not believing in him?Edit: I didn't intend for this to be an argument about indoctrination, I meant for it to be about free will in the way that Galen Strawson theorizes. Your mind is set a certain way, so perhaps your beliefs (and actions) are too, only being affected by other circumstances you cannot control.
I've noticed that some of the more vociferous/zealous believers come from very troubled backgrounds, or have had terrible life experiences. PI've met a number of former alcoholics who have used religion to fight their addiction, or elderly people to manage their anxiety of death. Do you feel guilty debating these folks online, as if you are kicking the crutch out from under them?
the one christian who pretends to be many people on this site said :"Gee, what a shock. Yet one more bigoted Liberal spewing his bigoted hatred for Christians while never saying a word against Islam."so lets say a word aginst islam ,if you have a word against islam !
It has become increasingly common for women to not take their husbands name after marriage. If women are subscribing to the institute of marriage should this tradition be followed as well?
We can exclude hyphenation from the debate.
Can a Godless Nation prosper from absence of moral absolutes?
When a nation's faith is banished from the public square, can it continue to prosper from the vacuum of moral values once lifted up by faith in God? Can man lift up moral values when no man thinks alike? With lack of moral guidelines, can a society fall into an anythng goes self love culture?
