Right & Wrong
Most humans try to lead a good life and do what is right and produce
happiness for themselves and their families.
God must exist –
a) to give people guidance in leading a good life and
b) to guarantee good people a place in heaven after they die. If God did not
exist their struggle would have been in vain.
What guidance does God give people?
Is the necessity of reward a good argument for God’s existence?

“Boys are better than Girls.”
Do you agree? Give reasons for your opinion,
showing that you have considered another
point of view.
The class will be split into two sections. The
boys will argue against the statement and the
girls will argue in favour of the statement.
Yes that makes it harder but it allows you to
understand that to win an argument you need
to also offer the alternative view in a balanced
fashion.
In the debate one person has to stand up from
each side to offer an argument a person from
the other side has to stand up to counter argue
the point. You need to refer to the statement.
Each argument offered will help your side get a
point.
AND THERE’S HOMEWORK!!!!
