Is it better to tell the truth or to not tell the truth?

With recent events i have encountered, lol, I'm starting to think that sometimes not telling the truth is a good idea, if anyone else thinks different. You know what to do!...

It is Better to be Upfront and Honest about Yourself, than to Fake Yourself and Hide.

I will allow you to go first, I desperately need an argument to relieve stress. Three rounds and max 2,000 characters. I want to keep this somewhat short....

God exists.

Ockham
thelogicalumbrella

The resolution is that God exists. Pro will be arguing that God exists, while Con will be arguing that Pro has not established that God exists. By accepting this debate, Pro agrees that they have the burden of proof to establish that it is objectively more likely than not that God exists. The rules for assessing this are the standard rules of logic, including the rules of deductive and inductive inference. For example, a deductive argument must be deductively valid and have premises that we h...

Inherent morality does not exist

DementedAmnesiac
TheMarketLibertarian

"Morality is the differentiation of intentions, decisions and actions between those that are distinguished as proper and those that are improper." I argue that the distinction between proper and improper behaviour is man made, and no action is inherently right or wrong, and therefore moral high ground does not exist....

Resolved: Abortion ought to be preserved as a medical practice worldwide I will argue against this resolution and the opponent will argue for it. May the best debater win! -LDBen P.S. You can post your first argument below. DO NOT post an acceptance message. Simply offer your arguments. P.S.S. Please do not go off on a 10,000 character tangent with no stated arguments. It would make it easier for me and the judges to read you debate. I.E. 1. XXXX 2. XXXXX NOT 1. XXXXXXXAUISHDJAS...

Arranged Marriages Should Be Considered Illegal

Mariamahmed
APBUNDY

I am on the side of having arranged marriages as legal. Firstly, an arranged marriage is not a punishment or oppressive idea but rather a way of life. An arranged marriage is not forced upon any of the parties but chosen by them. Not everyone wants to fall in love. Secondly, arranged marriages are deemed to be more successful. This was noticed in a study where the love DECREASED in love marriages but INCREASED in arranged marriages. (Source 1). SOURCE 1: file:///Users/Aftab/Desktop/Scre...

Abortion is morally wrong.

TylerLamb
somerandomvideocreator

Pro will argue that abortion is morally wrong in every circumstance. Con can either argue that abortion is never morally wrong, or that there are circumstances where abortion is not immoral. This debate is not about the legality or constitutionality of abortion, only its morality. All human life is valuable and no one is inherently superior to anyone else. Given that human life has value, killing a human is immoral. Logically, an abortion would be immoral if the fetus is a human life. I argue...

That the Existence of a Creator is More Logical

Raumulus
DrCereal

Salve DrCereal, I just read through your incomplete debate with Vinnie_Cross_Briet, and I was disappointed to see it end how it did. If you're up for it--which it seems you are, as you've issued three debate challenges on the existence of God--I'd like to offer my commentary on your previous debate, and pick up the conversation where you left it with Vinnie. RULES: In round one: I'd like to adjust the scope and definitions of the previous debate: DrCereal v. Vinnie_Cross_Briet, "A Cre...
