I don't need to prove your religion is false you need to prove it is true.

I have no reason to believe that your god is real. There are so many different gods, and its not possible for all of them to be real but it is possible for none of them to be. faith is not a reason it is the suspension of reason so belief can be preserved. I'm asking for clear evidence for the existence of god because if you want others to believe your radical claims you require radical evidence. Bertrand Russell's teapot analogy illustrates this argument very well and it goes as follows "If...

Is Cultural Appropriation a bad thing?

alecburn
Theradicalfeminist

I understand the need for representation it allows people to see others like them and realize they are normal and should not be ashamed of how they were born. I get that portraying entire cultures offensively is bad and leads to stereotypes. I get that costumes or portrayals that are meant to disrespect are bad this is were i think culturally black face is. I usually am able to understand and agree with progressive thought but cultural appropriation baffles me. The greatest struggle modern s...

The C.I.S are the good guys during the events of the Clone Wars. [Star Wars]

Knaveslayer99
Locke000

So I tried to do this debate once and my opponent ended up just never getting back to me so I thought I'd try once again. I will be defending the Confederacy Of Independent Systems as the good guys during the events of the Clone Wars and will be arguing it was the preferably side to the Republic. Con will argue against my claims and will argue that the Republic or another Faction are clearly the good guys instead. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Opening Arguments Round 3: Counter-Ar...

Guys can not be just friends with girls

FanboyMctroll
jo154676

The only reason a guy is friends with a girl is because he wants to get in her pants. Otherwise a guy would have no reason to be around a girl, guys have different interests then women, guys want to watch sports and bond with other guys, they want to wrestle and drink beer and go fishing or hunting or dirt biking or other guy activities. Guys do not want to go with a girl to a mall and go shoe shopping or watch American Idol or the food network, the only time guys will do that is if they really...

Animal Testing for Cosmetics

Erin_M
alecburn

Argument: Should animal testing be used in the field of cosmetics? By cosmetics I mean household products such as shampoo,conditioner,soap, makeup, skincare etc. This does not include the use of animal testing for drugs, only cosmetics. My position: Animal testing should not be used in the field of cosmetic testing in the U.S. due to the cruelty the animals experience, the millions of animals that are killed each year in the tests, and because of modern technological advances that allow for...

Are Gods necessary?

Carter16
vi_spex

I believe the Gods are necessary to human kind. Without any belief in something above pulling the strings, humans would have nothing and/or no one to blame when things went a-wire. Also, Gods give humanity hope that there is a reason why we are here, and/or something after death for human kind....

Living in the City vs living in the Country (rural setting)

FanboyMctroll
Curly_Fryz

I am going to debate for living in the country as opposed to a city. Some of my points will include, all the space in the country, way lower crime, no noise or pollution. Everybody knows everyone, people are relaxed and nicer in the country. Let me know why you would want to live in a cramped 500 sq ft condo in a big city with noise, crime and crowds and traffic jams, no thank you...

Questions for an Athiest

Pigney
batman01

I have a few questions, which i legitimately want answered. I have never heard one of these properly answered by an atheist, without him using circular reasoning or unnecessarily long arguments. I have given only a short amount of time (60mins) but it should be plenty enough. I have also provided for only a short amount of characters, to avoid long redundant statements, but you should have plenty of space to answer all of the questions with easy explanations . This is not really a debate. Okay...
