God does not exist

GlenB
CuriousFear

Why I'm starting this debate:I am an agnostic. I am pretty convinced that god doesn't exist, but I just want to be sure. I am initiating this debate in order to find someone (if this person exists) who has truly compelling evidence for the existence of God.My current position on this topic:If I wanted to believe in leprechauns, somebody would probably say, "How come I've never seen any?". I could respond to this by saying, "They are invisible to the naked...

tax increases r inevitable and will be the most responsible thing to do.

raising federal taxes will be inevitable and be the most responsible thing to do the things that make up by far most of the budget are too hard to cut, and we shouldn't be cutting them too much anyway. social security, medicare, interest on the debt, defense, all make up over ninety percent of our budget. even if you wiped out the rest of the government, which would be the height off irresponsibility, you still couldn't even balance the budget, which is five hundred billion dollars. the budge...

No culture is superior to another

FrostyCold
Stupidape

(I apologize for this beforehand as some words may lack spaces between them because that's how it formats it) Its often seen as the western style of government - individualistic and capitalistic -with large technological advances are seen as superior to other countries or styles of management of the world. I mean; wouldn't the average (western) human being scoff tribes around the world as inferior to the superior might and supposed intellectual, moralistic and technological staple the USA or...

Should abortion be legal, and if so, is it moral?

Billjunior
DanBe

In this debate, I, the instigator, will be arguing that abortion should be legal (in all counties), and that it is moral to have an abortion. For the purposes of the argument, let's define abortion as "the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy". Good luck to whomever may accept this challenge :) Opening argument- Many people state that abortion is killing an inncoent person. While that is true, it does not entail that therefore abortion isn't moral. The fetus's right to live, does not e...

Welcome everybody to our debate! Before we begin, there are few things I'd like to say.

Gun ownership: Individual Right or Collective Right?

Bored_Debater
Foucault

The question is, in the United States, is it an individual right to keep and bear arms or is it solely a right held by those that serve in the states' militias? Pro will argue that it is an individual right, con will argue that it is a collective right. Individual Right: Is a right held by individual people. Collective Right: Is a right held by group members, this case in the militia....

Donald Trump's child rape case allegations are credible.

Stupidape
wv1121

The new child rape allegations against Donald Trump are credible. First and foremost the plaintiff has an witness. [0] Donald Trump has been accused by his ex-wife, Ivana of raping her. Jill Harth accused Trump of sexual assault. Selina Scott accused Trump of stalking her.Top this off with Trump being an overt misogynist. Since misogyny and sexual assault are linked, Trump is at more likely to commit sexual assault. [1]"“The first reason, and this is...

Gays can't reproduce so they must be recruiting.

Sarah9019a

My stance is that gays are born, can reproduce, and are not recruiting. I'm not sure what the opposing side is stating on this. I think there is some scientific explanation for Gays, though I'm not sure never bother to look into the topic. Burden of proof is 51% on Pro. Thanks for the debate....

God is Irrelevant in Today's Life

Foucault
WhatIsYourProof

Many of the religious debates are about the existence of God. I counter that God is irrelevant. Science has mapped out the origins of our universe and even have evidence about what came before it. God is not needed for life in the twenty-first century. I would like to hear from someone on the Con position, but only if we can keep the debate calm and professional....
