Animal rights are meaningless from a secular viewpoint

AsianCalamari
Yugandda

Introduction:This is my first attempt at a debate on DDO, and I look forward to an interesting and engaging conversation.In this debate, we will be arguing from a purely secular viewpoint; Con cannot use a religious argument such as "Religion X states that animals should not be killed". Likewise, Pro cannot use the argument "Religion Y permits the killing of animals".I, Pro, will argue that the concept of animals being entitled to rights is arbitrary through the lens of a secular worldview - it...

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Cluckelite

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, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...

My argument is this; when a male of the species sees/smells a certain female of the same species; there is a hormonal primal attraction that creates a natural desire which pl...

Seagull
ssadi

I recently debate this topic with N7. (1) As is was my first debate and I am working to impove I would like to try my hand at this topic again. I did make a subtle change. The resolution is now a question. This is important to notice as I want the burden of proof to be shared in this debate. It will be my burden to argue that it is morally permissable, while my opponnet will need to argue that it is not. I have set the character limit to 6,000 and the time between rounds to 3 da...
