Now, I've heard this before in other debates I've had. But reading this article made me want to bring it up here.
I have my reasons for believing bisexuality IS a legitimate sexual orientation and also have my reasons for why I'm annoyed with the picture that goes along with it, but I want to know what others have to say.
I saw a user argue that you can't have use evidence or interpret evidence without relying on faith. This user's reasoning? You have faith that your senses for observing the evidence are accurate. I was going to reply with my response but the user brought it up on a completely different debate, so I figured I'd create this one.
Do you agree or disagree? DEBATE IT!!!!!!!!!!
To those who believe God (Abrahamic deity) exists....
Is it possible that the Bible will be added to? A Newer Testament? Is it possible for God to create a new way for us to live other than what the Bible already wants from us?
I already have my own opinion. But I'm curious and want to survey the rest of you.
It seems in debates about God or a god, some people hault the god debate to argue over whose burden it is to prove their position. So who do you think is right?
Should we have to prove that God does exist?
Should we have to prove that he does not exist?
Are there any third party answers?
There is a facebook page making news lately, called "Rapebook", the intention is apparently to stop rape threats on Facebook.
But there is still much to question about the page when you observe the page itself. What are your thoughts on the page?
Legalizing gay marriage will force the churches to marry gays?
Call me stupid, but I had an epiphany about an oppositional argument to legalizing same-sex marriage. The common oppositional argument: "Legalizing gay marriage will force the (usually "Christian" is attachted in here) churches to marry gays." I never understood it, I never understood where that thought would even come from except from a paranoid mind. But now I realize there might be another reason for this statement.Now, this is a sincere question to those who DO argue and believe that oppositional argument:
Are you unaware that more than churches of your religion can officiate and marry people? There are clergy of various religions who can, along with secular marriage officiants who have the ability to officiate a marriage. And all these marriage officiants are not required to accept marrying you, they decide whether or not they want to marry you (usually a "no" answer is due to a busy schedule or traveling issues).
Was this unknown to you? Does it change your opinion?
And more importantly, was this information known to you and yet you still believe this argument? Why so?
Please, only sincere, civil debate here. I want people to feel comfortable as this is already a view being challenged.
Not convert to atheism. But of other religions. What would it take to convince you another religion is worth your time to convert to?
Please try and embrace the HYPOTHETICAL scenario and but just dismiss this as “that'll never happen”.
If most mammals are not monogamous, they do not pair bond, and there is so much cheating going on in the human world, does this give weight to polyamorous type relationships?
*Raw thought, just trying to stir it up with different debates*.
"People who are more intuitive in the way they think and make decisions are more likely to believe than those who ruminate over their choices."
"Determining who believes in God and who doesn't may come down to a simple math problem: "A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?""
