Abortion is Immoral

Hello, this is a debate about the morality of abortion (not whether it should be legalized/banned). I am new to the website, so I am hoping that this is the correct format to frame the debate. If not, please feel free to correct me :) My position is that abortion is a strictly immoral action, as when a woman consents to have an abortion, and a doctor carries the procedure out, they are directly causing the death of a human being. Abortion is a very complex issue, as women who seek abort...

God's existence - it is reasonable to conclude a supernatural cause of existence

God's existence - it is reasonable to conclude a supernatural cause of existence bottom line: if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. if you see a magician who waves his wand and makes cats turn into dogs, you could argue a natural explanation is possible, and perhaps even argue that it is preferable, given most times magic tricks have explanations. but, the most direct observation is that violations of natural laws have occurred, and / or things outside of nature. at...

Free will exists only if the soul exists

The processes possible in a physical world can be classified into two categories random and deterministic, it follows therefore that in order for free will to exist there must be a non physical construct behind the scenes to enable free choice i.e. a soul....

God Debate Switch-a-roo 2

The-Holy-Macrel
PepePopo2012

Con-- Me, I am christian and will argue that god DOESN'T exist. Pro-- You, you must be atheist and will argue that god DOES exist. The purpose is that after I calmed my christian bloodlust against atheism in my first month here i got bored of the god debates that take up about one-fifth to one-seventh of our beloved site. So i want to spice it up a bit. And the christian god as described in the bible (for standard lets use the KJV) is the god we are arguing about existing. I have a...

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Kyle_the_Heretic

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...

Those Who Take Selfies (Just By Themselves) Are Ego-Maniacs

FrEeMaSoN1692
briauna

Noun 1. egomaniac - an abnormally egotistical person egoist, egotist, swellhead - a conceited and self-centered person http://www.thefreedictionary.com/egomaniac Since I have established the meaning of what an ego-maniac is, I will say that selfies are the dirt of society. They are within the same category as reality tv shows and pornography (I'll admit that I do watch pornography). If people aren't ego-maniacs, then they wouldn't need to have things like Facebook and Twitter. They say th...

advanced hominid decendants should be valued above homo sapiens when expanding into the universe

dairygirl4u2c
Duncan

advanced hominid decendants should be valued above homo sapiens in expanding into the universe eventually man will have to expand off of earth, or we will go extinct. wouldnt it be wise to allow first the most advanced of us to leave and expand civilization? this very well could (and perhaps should) eventually lead to hominid speciation. we could have a loyalist approach to it, and argue that our species should be of higher priority than allowing or promoting our decendants to be of sup...
