Prove your own existence as a separate being

THEBOMB
BangBang-Coconut

I will be trying to disprove your existence while you are trying to prove your existence. Everything that is sensed externally is just a physical manifestation of yourself. Everything that is perceived is just subconscious images projected into the outside world. The different people who are all different in some way are just parts of you that want to achieve different goals. Therefore, you are just a projection of my mind and are part of my mind. This means you do not exist as a separate bei...

Your knowledge about anything and everything is not unexpected

parvadhaa
esisCOA

Here is a propaganda which says that 'your knowledge about anything and everything is not unexpected." At every moment we get new knowledge. Hence such views should be opposed. One can see the document "the expected knowledge" here -> http://wikia.academia.edu/SivashanmugamPalaniappan/Papers/1236851/The_Expected_Knowledge And, I strongly oppose that statement....

Torture

Torture is to inflict server pain on, either mentally or physically for the purpose of breaking their will. Psychological forms of torture and ill-treatment, which very often have the most long-lasting consequences for victims, commonly include: isolation, threats, humiliation, mock executions, and witnessing the torture of others. Some cases of torture are due to extreme emergencies. Torture can be considered an effective form of punishment in some instances. Killing can be considered and e...

Language is the transcendental signified.

Dubs_for_whatevs
chesslvr

God has been superseded by man who has been now overturned by language. The transcendental signified as it should be interpreted in the context of this debate, is a conception of that which grants things meaning from some external origin. (Science, religion, psychology, rationality, anthropology etc.) I claim that language is precisely the singularity from which everything is conceived and therefore properly valued. I suspect there are going to be women trying to follow this debate because th...

God loves you.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
ChosenWolff

The Con postion for this debate is "God does not love me". "God is not there", or "there is no proof that God is there" are unacceptable arguments for this debate and will be automatic forfeiture. If you cannot argue that God does not love you without saying "there is no God" or "there is no proof of God", Please do not accetpt this challenge. If Con, in the debate or in the comments, says "you can't know God is there" or "God is not there" or "there is no proof of God" or any such denial or neg...

The Sky Is Blue

Liquidus
CAPLlock

I will be willing to argue against the sky being blue. Since we all know that the sky is in fact blue, this should be a simple debate, however, I will still be willing to debate it. Rule:Do not try the "because everybody agrees on it, its true fallacy".This obviously is for fun....

Germans should not be offended when they get called "Nazi" (I think it's a compliment)

Adam2
Fanath

First round is for acceptance but here's a little intro by me: if I was a German I would take the Nazi remark as a compliment. For one, at least that country didn't go around conquering the world the way the Brits and Scandinavian countries did. (And don't even get me started on the way Denmark mistreats Greenland.)As I always say Hitler was much better than these two guys I put who are equal to each other in terms of being a total douche

I think, therefore I am

chit0wn
t-man

I am against the validity of the statement, "I think, therefore I am." I, con, am proving why the statement is false, and pro is proving why the statement is true. 1st round is acceptance, 2nd through 4th have no rules. In this case, I is defined as the identity of self, or ego. Think is defined as having thoughts....
