Philosophy is not wisdom, but rather tedious long opinions of a man about nothing exciting

PanLeo716366

For now I like to say that I am against that philosophy is wisdom, but it is rather a tedious long opinion on the literal nothing, nihilism, life, universe, all this are nothing to talk about, yet they talk about it and this should thus not be wisdom, but unsupported, untestable science. I am looking forward to my opponent's response....

Christianity Is Intrinsically Harmful

aburk903

Greetings. Although the topic of religion is nothing new to the debate community, I would like to propose this topic that does not focus on whether or not the Christian belief is one based upon fact. Faith is necessary for religious belief and cannot be revoked ultimately, for faith does not claim basis in reason. It is, rather, an absence thereof. However, this debate will address whether Christianity is intrinsically harmful or not, regardless of its factual validity. Definitions: 1. Ch...

The Joshua statement, "...but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." is anti-Christian.

The length of summer vacations in the American school system is harmful to education.l

AgnosticPanda

I would like this debate to be about educational effectiveness and not about the cost of schools. Con will debate why summer vacations are good for education, not for the recreation of students. Now my argument. There is so much time off during summer breaks, 2-4 months on average. That time causes the knowledge attained during the previous school year to fall into disuse, making it more difficult to build upon that knowledge in the upcoming school year....

The Christian God is personal and not merely philosophical

I argue that you cannot empirically or logically prove that God exists, but that it has to come from divine revelation or a desire to form a relationship. I will present evidence for my views. First round acceptance...

Government should subsidize my poetic life

Blade-of-Truth

I believe the government should subsidize me with a monthly stipend so I can write poems all day. My poems are benefitting the nation. Art is important to culture. Without art --- and the poetic arts in particular --- the nation has no hope. Why did we defeat the Russians? Because of our poetry and culture. I should get at least $2,000 a month, tax free, along with food-stamps, free medical care, and help with the electric bill, so long as I can crank out five to ten poems a month. Her...

exams

As a student who hates homework I find it strange that I am all for tests. Homework is unfair because not all students have the proper setting to complete assignments but all students should be able to pass exams so long as they participate in class activities during school. I believe grades should be based off only tests to be more fair to all students....

Gay Marriage

RyddianDynia
kbub

I think that no one can make a valid argument that 'gays' cannot get married. The only reasons I can think of are A. Religiosity B. Personal Distaste in the LGBT lifestyle C. Saying marriage is for procreation solely (it is not) I can easily counter any of the 3 (or all of them)...
