Should the USA use fear by torturing criminals as a way of preventing further crimes?

LiberalsAreStupid
KhalifV

If the United States were to torture criminals in such a fashion that other criminals wouldn't dare to commit another, thus preventing further crimes, do you think we should use this approach even though its not considered "humane". Using fear as a tool to make society better would make even a person who steals question if he should commit a crime or not for he would be tortured if he did....

Tier Tournament 2 [Top], R2: Let Anyone Work Anywhere

whiteflame
phantom

Thank you to phantom for accepting this debate! It's an honor to get this opportunity, as phantom is one of the first debaters on this site whose arguments really stood out to me, specifically in the previous Tier Tournament. I hope and believe that this debate should provide a solid challenge to us both. The topic as it stands, "Let anyone work anywhere," is something I feel the need to clarify. First, I'd like to expand the topic to its full length. Full topic: There should be no law in...

Free Will Solutions to the Problem of Evil Fail

Steffan

My position in this argument is that free will theodicies fail. In other words, that an attempt to resolve the problem of evil upon the basis of the freedom of agents does not succeed as an argument. This includes both the logical problem of evil (i.e. whether evil is logically inconsistent with the existence of an all-good God), and the evidential problem of evil (i.e. whether the existence of evil makes the existence of God less probable than not). In other words, the individual on the con...

The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." (I Samuel 16:7) This is a debate based on the Bible. It is taken for...
