However, my opponent must not attempt to win the debate by appealing to a rad...

Religon

DanielSaltine
ThesnamisSorreall

I believe that there is no logical argument that you can make to justify truly believing in any specific religion. Or for that matter to accept one religion over all others. The existence of God may have some pretty good arguments, but even then its hard to determine if there even is one....

Defining "Good" and "Evil"

albertack
ContraDictator

Many have attempted to define "Good" and "Evil." Most attempts (that I'm familiar with) appeal to very concrete behavior that can be generalized and universally applied. For example, "Thou shalt not kill."This, to me, is too simplistic. Does this apply in all cases and all scenarios? I believe accepting this generates a variety of conundrums, among them suggesting I cannot kill an intruder in my home who is attempting to kill my wife and child in cold blood. Thus I have rejected what I deem over...

[Your preferred theory of ethics] is tenable when examined closely

Reductio
ContraDictator

I will ask that my opponent represent a popular ethical framework, and I have given some options below. If you wish, you may represent an alternative view, however. Pro: Representing Mill's Utilitarianism, Kant's Formalism, Locke's Rights Ethics, or Aristotle's Virtue Ethics, present an argument that supports the validity of your position. Con: I will be arguing that not only are all systems of ethics irrational, but that they can be easily applied to opposing sides of a number of modern m...

Yes their are people in the world who exit that are sexually assaulting people, and or murdering with out a care in the world, and they deserve death, but if that person is a mentally impaired person who can change, shouldn't they be allowed the chance to change and be fixed.
