Allow me to begin by saying how pleased I am to be debating Josh Brahm. I'm sure that many of you will never get to read a more powerful case for the pro-life position than the case you will read in the course of this debate. And I only hope that I can do as well while I proceed to defend the pro-choice position. In this debate I'm going to argue that abortion is not morally reprehensible and should not be illegal, given the actual qualities that a human fetus possesses. Unlike a person, a f...
I will be defending two arguments, th...
God is a maximally great being, and by definition, you cannot conceive of anything greater than god.
'Most probable' simply means that it is more possible than its negation. If the theist side's arguments are more plausible than t...
I have challenged con to the debate on the topic of morality and if it is objective or subjective. I will take the stance that morality is objective and a universal standard does exist. I do believe that morality is looked at subjectively from all standards and as this increases it opens a larger window of terrible acts throughout society.

As CON, you will attempt to negate the resolution by arguing that the father should have equal and/or greater say in the decision.
Burden Of Proof
I am challenging Magic, an atheist, to a debate about the soundness of the cosmological argument. Soundness means that the premises of the argument are true, and that the conclusion follows logically from the premises. God is defined as the timeless (therefore beginningless), immaterial, spaceless, omnipotent, and p...
Homosexual acts refer to consensual sex acts between two or more members of the same sex. To keep the debate focused I will obviously not be defending male on male or female on female rape. I will only be defending consensual gay sex against the charges of immorality.
Flaw: a feature that is regarded as unfavorable
Objective: based on facts rather than thoughts or opinions
Round 1 is for acceptance.
