Abortion should be Illegal in cases that do not threaten the life of the mother/baby

Phoenix61397
Cold-Mind

I recently read your debate on abortion, and I'd like to argue this with you. Since I couldn't PM you or comment on your profile, I decided to just challenge you on it. You don't have to accept, and if you have any questions you can post on my profile or PM me. I'll lay out the debate structure in case you decide to head straight into acceptance: Rounds 1) Acceptance Only 2) Opening Arguments (No rebuttals) 3) Rebuttals 4) Closing Arguments/Final Rebuttals There will be a 4,000 chara...

Catholicism is not Christian.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Mr.Lincoln

Catholicism is not Christian because it denies the Bible as God's Word. The main point I will use in this argument is that the Bible says we can know we have eternal life, while Catholicism dictates that it's followers are not allowed to be sure they are completely forgiven by God now........and they are not forgiven by God now, , therefore they are not Christian. Christians are forgiven by God. Catholics are trying to earn forgiveness. The only source for this debate will be the King James B...

i think, therefore, i am that is how i prove my existence to myself. how is it a faulty basis? my thoughts are self referential. if i have a thought, it means somewhere somehow i must be thinking it. it might be a dream or somewhat illusory, but it is still a thought that is occurring. it might be an illusion flat out, but it's still an illusion meaning there is something there to delude....

Being vegan

Ignorance - 'lack of knowledge or understanding'. I argue that eating meat is more selfish and less ethical than not eating meat. I also argue that in order to eat meat, one must be either more ignorant to life and nature than somebody who doesn't eat meat. PLEASE NOTE - This statement only refers to those in the developed world, not tribes, primitive cultures or underdeveloped countries....

Male Evolution Versus Female Evolution (I believe Female Evolution needs more attention).

Aerogant
kl31

Back in the stone age, the primitive side of the brain was influencing the people over the practical side of the brain. The males created wars, excuses, power and control to get what they wanted, while the females, being biologically structured to be loved, not understood, had to be loved in a terrible sense of the word by the ruling of men. As civilization reached its peak of blood and death, people slowly started waking up to a more advanced way of controlling people without blood baths - the...
