Every ill society suffers from is a direct result of disobedience to Gods will.

Dr_Obvious
distraff

It is my belief that every societal ill we suffer from, is a direct result of disobedience to Gods will. Con must come up with one societal ill that is not a result of doing something that the Bible says NOT to do. For this debate, we will not be discussing natural disasters or disease, as these are something that we cannot control. This debate is solely about behavior and how it affects us as a society. Four rounds. Usual format. Acceptance, opening arguments, rebuttals, closing arguments...

Phoenix61397
Cold-Mind

I recently read your debate on abortion, and I'd like to argue this with you. Since I couldn't PM you or comment on your profile, I decided to just challenge you on it. You don't have to accept, and if you have any questions you can post on my profile or PM me. I'll lay out the debate structure in case you decide to head straight into acceptance: Rounds 1) Acceptance Only 2) Opening Arguments (No rebuttals) 3) Rebuttals 4) Closing Arguments/Final Rebuttals There will be a 4,000 chara...

I will be defending this thesis, and my opponent's objective should be to show that there are instances where a person acts with with purely altruistic motives. First Round will be for Acceptance. Any questions, please ask in the comments before accepting. Any confusion that arises that could've been avoided with a simple qu...

Mormons are Christians

Bdollhall
jladams

In debate the following will be available to counter either person: The Bible, Book of Mormon, Prophets, Prophecies, Manuscript, Archaeological Evidence, and so forth. As you can tell there is very little that should not be considered "fair play". Being a Christian, my primary source of information will inevitably come from the Bible, and I will do my best to focus on the contradictions between the Bible and Book of Mormon. In short, the opposing party will do their best to convince me...

Is Homosexuality Wrong?

foreduca
MailboxVegetable

Firstly, I want this debate to be in some sense philosophical. By philosophical I mean that we are arguing in normative ethical terms, not meta-ethical. Therefore this debate presupposes that there are absolute moral values and truths. Secondly, I'd rather not have a debate if the only thing we are doing is throwing random ad hominem attacks at each other. Lastly, my argument. P1: If there is a class of moral issues that we we have no reason to say are wrong, yet they are wrong, then,...
