Karma exists not as a physical reality, but as a psycho-spiritual reality for all self-aware beings.


Last time, my opponent was so unprepared for my argument that the debate never got off of the ground on account of a double forfeiture. I will be arguing for the existence of Karma. Karma is defined here as the psycho-spiritual principle that the conscious intentions of any self aware individual are the only causes of mental anguish and personal fulfillment. The BOP is on me to prove the existence of this psycho-spiritual principle. If my opponent can prove that mental anguish or personal...

Gay marriage should be legalized in all states


I believe that same sex marriages are the same at heterosexual marriages. To me marriage is between 2 people who love each other, and they would favor in sharing their love for the rest of their lives. As we live in a modern day society, people are now re-defining the meaning of marriage and is starting to suppose gay rights, and that's great! But there is still a percentage of people who believe it's wrong. Gay marriage can be a positive thing prior to our financial system. If gay marri...

Pascal's Wager is not a convincing reason to believe in the Judeo-Christian God.


I will be arguing that Pascal's Wager is not a convincing reason to believe in the Judeo-Christian God.

Pascal's Wager, for this round, shall be characterized as the argument that because belief in God holds infinitely good consequences (i.e. Heaven), and disbelief has very bad consequences (i.e. Hell), you should believe in Go...

Religion should have no part in law


I feel strongly that religion should have no impact or rights within law, that being that the belief within a religion should not be part of how laws are governed or executed and instead it should be down to morality and the elected government to implement laws specific to reasons outside of any religion. * I'm new to this site and to debating in general so take it easy on me! :)...

And we'll stop the debate before the 2nd part of round 4....
