Are Aliens Real


Aliens do not exsist because if they did we would all be taken over. People that believe aliens are real are confused by sitings of planes as the so called "UFOs."...

Keeping Animals in Zoos is unethical

Abortion is Morally okay


To my opponent: Please keep this respectful and calm. I don't want to offend anyone, my goal is to understand your position more thoroughly...that said, let's go. My position on abortion is that it is morally wrong. I'd like to start by addressing a few common arguments made by pro-choicers. 1. We're pro-choice, not pro-death. Basically, we're in favor of everyone deciding for themselves rather than there being a strict definition of what you can and can't do. a) I'm not saying you ha...

A.I. of sufficient intelligence deserves Personhood


First round is acceptance. Basis & Definitions: We will presume that the entity's nature itself does not matter. The question is essentially whether a being that functions as a human would fully entitled to emotions, mental capabilities, and intelligence should be considered a "Person". The standard of machinery still is present so the object still requires initial input unlike biological systems but beyond that input can assess within it's parameters which is assumed to be equivalent to a hu...

Euthyphro dilemma is still a sound argument against Devine command theory


In this debate I choose to defend the euthyphro dilemma in that it is still a sound argument against the divine command theory. While my favorite topic of debate there are still those who wish to attack the dilemma and this debate is posted so you may have that chance. My initial argument to defend it is that there is no sound argument against it as of yet, and while there may be arguments that seem sound they fail to answer the over lining question of the dilemma which is, what is good? ""Is wh...

Do animals have souls?


I do not believe animals have souls. For the purpose of this debate, humans will not be included as an "animal". The purpose of this is to leave out pointless debating. You may post your argument in the first round, as I will. My argument goes as follows: The definition of "soul" is "The spiritual principle embodied in human beings, all rational and spiritual beings, or the universe" [] and animals are not rational beings; they may be aware...

Can a person prove their existence?


I am arguing that a person cannot prove that they exist in the physical world. By physical world I mean that they must exist in physical form and NOT in the imagination or mind of a being. If my opponent is unable to prove his existence than he will be defeated. Rules: My opponent will use each round in order to give as many "proofs" for his existence as he/she wishes. I will use the beginning of each round to rebuke the his/her proofs. In the 2nd post of the 5th round my opponent is not...

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...
