Are Atheists Able to Know Reality from Delusion?

ViceRegent
Scruggs

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 t...

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...

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...

Is it possible to romantically love more than one person at once?

raqueljb

(1.) Both sides agree to the definition of love that is given here. Love is an intense feeling of deep affection. (2.) Both sides have also agreed to the definition of romantic love. Romantic love is when you feel an emotional high and passion when you and your lover are together. (3.) Romantic relationships involve intimacy between people, whether it is between two people or more. A person may be involved in a romantic relationship with as many people as they want. Referring back to the defi...

Would Killing 70,000 People (Civilians) Justify Ending A War?

Pretty.Odd
MasterDbater18xray

As tragic as it is, I am for this argument. War is a terrible thing, and very sad, too. However, war isn't won by sentiment. It's won by soldiers. So many people die in wars, civilians and soldiers alike, that disposing of 70,000 would save much more lives than the ones lost. I know that's not for certain, but taking risks is something that happens a lot in war, from the Revolutionary War to Afghanistan. Too many times we have underestimated the enemy and sent in men and women, many with familie...
