For a grown man to step on a kitten is a morally neutral act

Discipulus_Didicit
joshuroar

Con can make arguments in the first round, but by doing so gives up their right to make arguments in round two. Con also has the option of using the first round as acceptance.(we both have one round to argue) con also accepts all definitions. 2000 character limit can be increased on request to whatever Con desires before accepting. Two rounds is non-negotiable. Our definitions will be vastly oversimplified, but that is just because I want this to be a short debate. I don't have enough real...

Should national pride play second fiddle to internationalism?

vietbach2580
PanicAtTheDoctor

I think the answer is "yes" because today is the era of globalization. "united we stand, divided we fall", therefore, one should put their national ego aside to be a part of the world, to be not just national citizens but global ones....

THW: Pull the lever in the "trolley problem".

PsychicPhysicist
jsmill

The problem is as follows: There are five people on a track, and they are about to be run over by a runaway trolley! However, you are next to a switch which, if you pull, will divert the trolley onto a different track, hitting the one person who is on that track, instead. We are assuming that the only way to save the five people is to pull the lever- you can't yell at them to move off the track, for instance. We're also assuming that the trolley is absolutely guaranteed to hit and kill who...

Rules: No trolling. No Flaming (stay civil) Have fun. Rounds: 1) Acceptance 2) Opening Statements 3) Rebuttals and closing statements...

brainFreeze
LifeLightI

I will be debating that there would be NO mistakes if we did everything perfectly. In order to make this a worthwhile debate you must have the ability to assume or imagine that "A person is born perfect" although that's not possible but still what's the harm in analyzing another point of view?...

The human will power ( mind) can affect time and space based phenomenon of our world

tahiralmas
Bensen

The human willpower is far more superior than its per-considered role of survival of human body and it has power to severely affect time and spaced phenomenons metaphysically beyond rules of our physical world. Following are my evidence in support of this claim 1. As a simple rule, If willpower (mind ) is sub product of body whose main function is to play its part for the survival of human body then it can not damage and annihilate human body itself but we often see that when human will...
