Assassination, in an effort to save lives.

KingVeridical
Qwerty750

If you could kill one child just by pulling a trigger, knowing that doing so would save 10,000 innocent children from dying by the childs hands, knowing that if you do not kill the child it will kill those 10,000 innocent children for no reason, knowing there is no way to stop the child and you only have two options, pull the trigger, or walk away, what would you do? Pull the trigger is Pro/For. Walk away is Con/Against. If you walk away, the very next day that child plants a bomb on the...

Do we need Government Laws or Religious Doctrine for Moral Guidance?

Frederik
Kelisitaan

Here I will argue against the position that we need government laws or religious doctrine to create a set of moral principles used by society to sustain itself peacefully. No new arguments in round 4, max 3000 characters. -------- Government laws are mere opinions of people enforced with guns because they are not reasoned from universal principles. Religious commandments are also not reasoned from universal principles, but are arguments from authority at best. Any set of principles...

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

tommylibertarian1

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT THESE ATHEISTS KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET NOT ONE HAS ANSWERED MY Q. Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. SO,...

One Can Be for Birth Control and Against Homosexuality Without Contradicting Oneself?

cloebowie
Kelisitaan

This debate is whether one can encourage birth control and discourage homosexuality without contradicting oneself. I can tell you why they can't, and you can tell me how they can. If one does not agree with homosexuality because they don't agree with sex without reproduction, then one cannot agree with sex accompanied by birth control without contradicting oneself, because sex accompanied by birth control is sex without reproduction (or, at least, is intended to be).

Is Santa Claus Good for Children?

VyridosVhasselion

This debate is whether Santa Claus is good for children or not. I can tell you why he's not, and you can tell me why he is. Santa Claus is a bribe. Children are no nicer because of him. The children on his "nice list" are just as fake as he is. Make the best debater win....

In the End, Was Rudolph Accepted for His Red Nose?

cloebowie
gators43776

This debate is whether Rudolph was ever really accepted for his red nose or not. I can tell you why he wasn't, and you can tell me why he was. I understand the moral of the story is suppose to show that it's okay to be different, but what the story actually portrays is that it's okay to be different if you're different in a way that others can use to their advantage. The story explains that Rudolph was never wanted until he was needed, meaning it wasn't Rudolf's nose in itself that was accept...
