Emilrose

I appreciate EmilRose being willing to debate this topic with me. I honestly didn't think many people would be too interested in this topic so I reached out to her knowing her interest in Israeli politics as well as history. I also wanted the challenge of facing an undefeated opponent. Little did I know that quit a few people were actually interested in debating this but I think I picked the best person for this particular debate anyway. The Elo limit unfortunately has to be at above 2,000 El...

Mikal
dtaylor971

Note : This was an idea that either bsh or annie came up with, but I liked the concept. Each round each user will post 5 pictures of a model. All the pictures that are posted in one round must be of the same model. Meaning there will be 4 different models used throughout the course of this debate, with 20 pictures total. The name of the model should be included with their age, height, and weight. Con Will start the debate in round 1, and pass in round 5 to even out the rounds. Ju...

TheSkeptic
Cerebral_Narcissist

I thank Cerebral Narcissist for accepting this debate challenge - it's been a while since my last debate, so I've been eager for another one. My position in this debate is not only is meta-ethical moral relativism unsound, it's logically incoherent. From here on out, I will refer to this position as meta-ethical relativism, and to be more precisely it's abbreviated form MMR. The following is a definition of MMR[1]: "The truth or falsity of moral judgments, or their justification, is not...

Ragnar_Rahl

"gravity" is the theoretical force that attracts mass together in our universe. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/gravity (definition 3) "My opponent" means CON, also known as the contender. "can neither disprove...nor" means not being able to prove false either concept http://www.thefreedictionary.com/dispr...
