This is for The Troll Tournament, found here: http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/46325/1/.Smoking: taking a puff out of a cigarette. It does not necessarily have to be just one puff, a few puffs, 100 puffs, are all smoking.I will not define anything else in the resolution, and neither will my opponent, because my opponent must only use round one for acceptance.My opponent must troll in this debate.It is fun debating unbeatables, I hope I have a good debate with this one....

The Death Penalty for the guilty

Mopi

Right, I'll be going against why there should be no death penalty for the guilty.1)Firstly, it goes agaisnt the very law of Right to protection of life, by awarding a person the death penalty, we ourselves are violating the law and a violation of law is not acceptable2) Its does not teach the guilty anything, if you look at it.

Objective Moral Judgements can be made in Moral Nihilism

*Leave a message if you want to accept this debate*Details:I have been thinking for a while how to word this resolution, which is my own position in terms of moral philosophy. I am a Nihilist, and I think it's a rational starting position for making moral judgements. For example, I will make the claim the holocaust was wrong, and I make that as an intended objective statement. The BoP is on me to demons...
