Should Cryogenic Freezing be Humanism's ideological answer to death?

thehumanistpreacher
Wylted

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dN1Fp_H89k Above are my arguments laid out in video form. The Humanist ideology needs to adapt and develop. There needs to be a shift from the question of who has the burden of proof of what happens when you die? Whether or not it should be the responsibility of humanists or those with religious beliefs. A more positive question should be, "What is science's current answer to death?". The answer is clear, the solution even clearer. Cryogenic Freezing may soun...

It is my contention that birth is an arbitrary dividing line between personhood and non-personhood, and thus, there is no moral difference between abortion and infanticide.This is my first DDO debate, and I would like to thank my opponent in advance for accepting this debate. I will be arguing as Pro. The first round is for acceptance, and we shall begin the discussion in round two.Personhood: The quality or condition of being an individual huma...

Terrorism poses a real and serious threat to the security and safety of the Alliance and its members. It is a global threat that knows no border, nationality or religion " a challenge that the international community must tackle together. NATO"s work on counter-terrorism focuses on improved threat awareness and preparedness, developing adequate capabilities and enhancing engagement with partner countries and other international actors.

The problem of Slytherin

thett3

Resolved: The portrayal of Slytherin House in the Harry Potter books, on balance, detracts from the series as a whole. For the purposes of the debate, only information contained in the original series (not Pottermore or the movies) is canon. I am affirming. The first round is for acceptance, second for constructives, and third and fourth for rebuttals. No new arguments in the last round. I look forward to the debate!...

I will be taking Pro of Gun Rights. I really wanted an intelligent and deep discussion about gun rights and gun laws in a previous debate, but my opponent didn't participate in it and never replied to my argument. ---I will consider it a freelance debate; no set rules about the rounds--- I will open with an argument of constitutionality. As most people on DDO may know, the Second Amendment states: "Amendment II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a fre...

Male Evolution Versus Female Evolution (I believe Female Evolution needs more attention).

Aerogant
kl31

Back in the stone age, the primitive side of the brain was influencing the people over the practical side of the brain. The males created wars, excuses, power and control to get what they wanted, while the females, being biologically structured to be loved, not understood, had to be loved in a terrible sense of the word by the ruling of men. As civilization reached its peak of blood and death, people slowly started waking up to a more advanced way of controlling people without blood baths - the...
