Gay Marriage Should Be Legalized

Why Shouldn't It Be? When I look at the arguments against same-sex marriage, I see one argument come up a lot; same-sex marriage is not "natural". And I say that no marriage is natural. Marriage is a human invention. WE invented this. So no marriage is natural. Homosexual marriage is just as natural as heterosexual marriage is. Next, people say that a man and a woman are meant to be together because they are, biologically, the two parts needed to create children. But the point of marriage is...

Same-Sex Marriage Should Not Be Legalized

KeytarHero
Sitara

Stepping away from my usual debates regarding abortion and the existence of God, I'd like to try my hand at debating this contentious topic. The argument I will present is as follows:P1: Marriage has a special link to children.P2: Same-sex couplings do not have a special link to children.C1 (from 1 and 2): Therefore, same-sex couplings are not proper marriages.C2: Therefore, same-sex marriage should not be legalized.

The Ontological Argument is a sound argument for God's existence.

I wish to thank Con for taking up this challenge. We will debating the proposition "The Ontological Argument is a sound argument for God's existence." The formulation of the OA I will be defending is as follows:P1: It is possible that a maximally great being exists.P2: If it is possible that a maximally great being exists, then a maximally great being exists in some possible world.P3: If a maximally great being ex...

The Teleological argument is failed, and should NEVER BE USED EVER AGAIN.

No trolls please.I'll be arguing that the Teleological argument is flawed. I'll be using the following version: 1)The fine-tuning of the universe is due either to physical necessity, chance, or design.2) It is highly improbable that it resulted from physical necessity or chance.3) Therefore, it is highly probable that the universe was designed....

God's Existence is More Plausible Than His Non-Existence.

I wish to debate the proposition that God's existence is more plausible than his non-existence. This does not necessarily have to be the Christian God, just a Being, as described below.God will be defined as a Maximally-Great Being. God has all great-making properties (such as honesty, power, etc.) to their maximal extent, and no lesser-making properties. God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent.I will take the Pro side and pr...

If one rejects the doctrine of the Trinity, they can not be considered a Christian.

I first want to start by thanking KeytarHero for his consideration of this debate and hope he kindly accepts. I have recently come across a debate where KeytarHero debated that Mormons are not Christians. A main justification of reasoning was that Mormons rejected the doctrine of the Trinity and therefore could not be considered orthodox Christians. I will take the stance that rejecting the doctrine of the Trinity is actually more rooted in original Christianity than acceptance of it. I will...

To claify the resolution, the subject is exclusively the validity of the TAG, and its ability to support the conclusion that god(s) exist. It is NOT about other supports to the existence of god(s). As an example of what I mean by this, if one were to say "god(s) because KCA" that would not be a support of "god(s) because TAG".Further, I do not expect my opponent to argue for some specific god(s), however as the Teleological Argument is concerned with Teleology I do expe...
