Science has rendered theism unreasonable

Jellon
Envisage

There is a chronic tension between agnostics and theists where both sides believe people who believe the other side are unreasonable. I often see names called by both sides. As one who believes both belief systems are reasonable, I intend to defend the position that modern science has not rendered theism unreasonable. To win, Pro must show that modern scientific knowledge provides overwhelming evidence that there does not exist a god. To win, Con must be able to reasonably address all argume...

This House Believes 0.99* Equals 1!

BoggyDag
Ajabi

Following my opponent's declaration of intent (see http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/47713/ ), I hereby challenge him to deliver at least ONE logically, mathematically or philosophically acceptable argument for his outlandish claim that 0,99*=1.I say the two are not the same, and will prove so below. In order to win, my opponent has to disprove my argument and deliver one sound argument of his own, as disproving my proo...

Statistics and predictive models should be acted upon before a crime is committed

Dmaa97
negroid

Should statistics or predictive models trump freedom to act? For example, if a person with a specific profile (gender, race, income bracket, etc) is predicted to have a 99 % chance of committing a crime, should authorities act on that informative and take preventive measures, and to what extent?...

Feminism: Positive or Negative

bryanlink
Pfalcon1318

I am obviously against Feminism, because I feel it's no longer just a movement for equality, but a movement implying that all men are misogynistic pigs, which I obviously refute. There are no rules in this debate. Whoever wants to debate, accept the challenge and post your argument....

Euthanasia

Danielle
lannan13

On our last attempt at debating this subject, I had to leave for a vacation where I didn't have access to WiFi. I was forced to forfeit and thus "lost" the debate. I'd be interested in a rematch. I'll use the same arguments i presented for the last debate in the opening round. Con is free to copy and paste his previous arguments as well, or present an entirley new case. Good luck. ===========...

Catholics are not Christians

LifeMeansGodIsGood
RomanCatholic

A real Christian is saved from Hell now and has eternal life now. Cathoics hope to be saved, but they are not saved now and they do not have eternal life now so they are not Christians now. I welcome my opponents explanation of what he thinks makes him a christian. I say He is a Catholic, and not a christian. And if he does not accept this challenge, he is a chicken catholic....

Atheism Has No Burden of Proof

Double_R
Dragonfang

BoP is on myself as Pro and Instigator to prove the resolution. My BoP requirement is to demonstrate that my case is rationally justified despite Cons rebuttals. The definition of Burden of Proof and Atheism are subject to debate. First round is for acceptance only. No new arguments in round 4. All other standard debate rules apply....

Abortion is immoral

Dookieman
Guidestone

First round is for acceptance. Second round is for opening statements by Pro and Con (no rebuttals). Third round for first rebuttals. Fourth round for second rebuttals and concluding remarks. This debate will be centered on the moral issue concerning abortion, so do not bring Roe v. Wade or the law into this discussion. It's about the moral issue only. Pro and Con will also not be allowed to argue whether morality is objective or subjective. Because it's not relevant to the topic at hand....
