Is humanity a defective species?

bravevline
Superspork

I have to come to believe that humanity is broken for many reasons. We do not support the environment in a positive way, unlike any other organism which does help the natural ecosystem, even through the destruction it causes, making us the only one. We genetically modify plants and animals and create toxic, and unnatural chemicals/materials, such as plastic, and radioactive energy sources that nature may not be able to redress even after we are gone. Animal species are now going extinction at a...

Do we live in the matrix?

CivilianName295
Sensorfire

I will be arguing that we live in the matrix and that our universe is a simulation (virtual reality). (CON) will argue that we life in a real objective reality. This debate will not be about who the simulator is since the simulator could be Gods mind or a computer but this debate won't be focusing on that instead it will focus on if OUR universe is a simulaton. Rules: No bringing religion into the debate, use evidence, no personal attacks Round 1: Accept rules and conditions Round 2: Eac...

I don't think it is, but I'm pretty sure whoever sees this and wants to debate will be Con; I'm just really curious about the views that people have on this topic :)...

Are all people equal?

Sarah9019a

Hi! I've noticed a LOT of White Power stuff on the site, but I couldn't accept those debates. I disagree with the White Power movement and I thought it would be enlightening to have a debate. We will argue, Resolved: All humans ought to be treated equitably. I will support equitable treatment, you can oppose it in any way you choose (race-based inequality, gender-based inequality, etc.). Definitions are an argument, so I'm not including them here. Please be civil. BOP shared. I hope thi...

Privacy is an outdated norm in society.

HSeaton
Bilbin

In the 21st century, privacy is no longer the thing it used to be. The vast interconnected web of people we know as the internet, and the access we have to the lives and knowledge of each other, is widely recognized as one of the greatest achievements of our age. However, this does come at a cost: it reduces the privacy of individuals who are involved, trading away some knowledge about themselves in response for the knowledge they gain about everything else. Because of this, privacy of the kind...

Do Aliens Exist?

TheJackofHearts
Doom-Guy-666-1993

Do Aliens Exist? I assert that concerning the philosophical implication and arguments for the existence of aliens are highly weak and do no favors for the alien presupposition to be true. I believe there are no positive arguments for the existence of extraterrestrial life. This Debate will operate by standard rules Round 1- Acceptance of Debate Round 2- Opening Arguments based off belief in Round 1 Round 3- Counter Arguments criticizing the opponent's ideas in Round 2 Round 4- Closin...

It is unreasonable to believe in something that has no reason to exist.

Skeptologist
Sensorfire

Fun little debate purely focused on logical conclusions. I want to argue that it is absolutely Illogical for someone to believe in something which has not demonstrated any objective existence. By that I mean that anyone who experiences something they can not explain through their current understanding and fills it in with god, aliens, big foot, ghosts, etc. is committing intellectual suicide. Basically just giving up on reaching a real conclusion based on what is ACTUALLY happening in our u...
