Man Can't Know Theistic Truths

AnthraSight
Dubloon

My first debate will be a quick one since it's more of a question. My only argument is this, 1) If God is all knowing, then only he can know of himself 2) Mankind are not all knowing 3) Therefore, Man can't know theistic truths Support for 1: In order to know anything about a being which knows all, we must be within that very same epistemic position, but if no other being shares such a position with God, then ultimately God is unknowable. Support for 2: Humans stand in very l...

Should the Drinking Age Be lowered To 18

PrincessNene
KingKasual

Well i have some reason that the drinking age should be lowered to 18 because we are considered an adult by the age of 18 but that is still considered underage drinking,but for the people that drink do it unsafely and can end up getting hurt or even die because they do not have a safe environment to drink....

I will take the pro position that it is wrong to force a student or child to recite the pledge of allegience. Forced: enforced or compulsory http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/forced...

Why do Americans try to be like Europe in education when it's the first thing they cut from budgets

Mark9570
princetongurl

As this is my first argument on DDO, I would plead that my opponent doesn't bear down hard on me, and I apologise for any spelling, format errors that occur due to me using my IPod Touch as my medium. So to begin this debate, (Though I take the stand as Pro, in this debate, the positions are arbitrary, as this is intended to be more of an informative discussion than a debate between two well defined sides.) I just don't understand why America tries to compete with us Europeans in education ye...

Logic Game

Chrysippus
Charlie_Danger

Random logic game Overview: Each player posts four arguments, on any (clean) topic he chooses, and on as many (clean) topics as he chooses; they can be syllogisms, paragraphs, sentences, or symbols; they can be written, in a video linked (with the intended argument pointed out in the post), in a picture or graph linked, or in a news article linked, as long as it does not require a subscription to read the article. At least one of the arguments each round needs to be subtly fallacious. This...

resolved economic sanctions ought not be used to achieve foreign policy objectives

i would request that the following debate be in Lincoln Douglas format with the exception of the negative beginning the argument God is dead, god remains dead and we have killed him. - Nietzsche. The death of God is a way of saying that humans are no longer able to believe in any such cosmic order since they themselves no longer recognize it. The death of God will lead, Nietzsche says, not only to the rejection of a belief of cosmic or physical order but also to a rejection of absolute values...

Black women in America don't try to look white. American white women try to look black.

aliasam1337
FieryPassion

Con has to prove that black women cosmetically do try to look white women. Con also has to prove that white women cosmetically DON'T try to look like black women. Cosmetically meaning physically. This isn't a debate on how anyone acts, only on how they look. Both Pro and Con are not implying that all black women or all white women act the same way. This should be an interesting and possibly humorous debate. Good luck to the Con. First round is acceptance, second is argument, third is rebuttal...
