"Good" and "Bad" Do not exist, only Ignorance and knowledge.

Koz234
AnaMonomous

I simply do not believe that the beliefs of Good and Bad even exist. Obviously, someone can break a law, but that doesn't make them Bad, it makes them a lawbreaker. Someone who should be defined "Bad" would be an ignorant or arrogant individual who simply denies fact. Also, someone can follow laws their entire life, but they could be the most ignorant person alive, denying fact or simply being arrogant about something in their life. As an example, people do not learn from the past or their mista...

Infanticide is morally permissible.

I am re-sending this because my last attempt ended with no Con proposals. I am serious about this topic and want a serious opponent please. This will be a debate primarily on Infanticide but also on the case for abortion. The debate has to focus on the morality of infanticide. I am opening the debate, so Con I would prefer if he/she accepts and gives her argument, and then on the last round they do not write anything, I believe that evens out the responses. So usual rules apply, Roun...

We should euthanize all piranhas and vultures.

toamatt26

Piranhas and Vultures are very dangerous animals and has been human kinds natural enemy since the beginning of Earth. All though many animals of many different kinds attack us humans all the time, Piranhas and vultures seem to dangerous and useless to be able to live. Scientists should create a deadly chemical to release in the air that only kill vultures. This could take years but the results when it works would be terriffic. As with the piranha problem, we should send bombs to only kill them....

The concept of "Zero" proves that nothing can actually be treated as something!

Juan_Pablo
sorar3

Often, people tend to think of nothing as void of anything; a condition where absolutely nothing exist. But quantum mechanics doesn't treat empty space as genuinely empty - but a condition where something does exist, but in a completely neutral form! The concept of "zero" has merit here. The physicist Paul Dirac showed that "empty space" could be treated as consisting of a bunch of tightly-packed electrons with negative charge. He proposed that when...

(An argument in which the speaker deliberately ignores aspects that are unfavorable to their point of view) Burden of proof is shared. The Cosmological Argument Premise...
