This House would prefer a hierarchal feminist movement over a decentralized one

MasterManav
Sonofcharl

Today we are proud to bring forward the resolution "This house would prefer a hierarchal feminist movement over the common decentralized one." We on this side of the house believe that there is no exact definition of feminism. Yes, one could say "It is a movement promoting equality of the sexes" However we believe that in today's society we have too many different types of feminism. We have women who want to turn the tables and say that feminism is a movement promoting female domination. Whil...

MakeDebatingGreatAgain
TheUnexaminedLife

I will be arguing that subjective morality should be preferred to objective morality, for reasons to be discussed in my arguments. My opponent will argue for moral objectivity/moral realism.

The kalam cosmological argument is sound

Miles_Donahue
Moelogy

After a long sabbatical, I'd like to return to Debate.org, and this time by arguing against the kalam cosmological argument. I'll argue that Pro cannot show that the premises of the argument are true, and that's about it. First round, Pro will post his opening statement, and then not respond in the fourth round to make an equal number of contributions....

After a long sabbatical, I'd like to return to Debate.org, and this time by arguing against the kalam cosmological argument. 1. Everything that begins to exist has a cause. 2. The universe began to exist. 3. Therefore, the universe has a cause. I'll argue that Pro cannot show that the premises of the argument are true, and that's about it. Pro will begin their argument in this opening round, and then not post a response in round four....

I will be taking the position that such things do not exist, and are merely "spooks of the mind" as Max Stirner would call them. Before I give my evidence for such things, let me clear up a misconception readers of this debate will probably formulate, which is:...
