First round is acceptance only. I will argue that human nature is inherently good. My opponent must argue that human nature is essentially evil. Good luck!...

There is no unchanging, separate self.

Strycora
PhilK

First round for acceptance only. The feeling of being an individual separate from ones environment is inevitably found to be illusory. There is no core to being, no "observer" or "soul" that continues from life to life, or even, from moment to moment. All things are subject to change, and there is no unchanging substrate to this change. Indeed, "essence" is an illusory notion....

Does God Exist?

Stealyogirl-osaurus
QueenAnnesRevenge

My argument is that God does not exist based on the fact that all "evidence" that has been proposed to me thus far has been without merit and sprouted out blindly from every person that has tried to convince me that God does in fact exist. I am looking for a healthy debate where we can argue the existence of God through reason and evidence....

"Fresh" (Samuel L Jackson) should have been NC-17, not R

Adam2isback
Jellyfysh624

I believe context is what matters here. There was a lot of content that was too harsh for just even a hard R rating. One of them involves innocent kids in senseless shootings, all because jealousy is provoked, when the kids mostly never did anything. The urban violence in this movie is extremely intense. There is one violent scene that is extremely and viciously disturbing. Add to that the intense use of drugs and the graphic depiction of, all people, a 12-year-old selling drugs. You a...

Dogs cannot be Anarcho-Socialists

mightbenihilism
Max.Wallace

My proposition: A lot of people say dogs' love is unconditional and they are "loyal" animals. Evidence proves the contrary, however. Instead, dogs manipulate people and use coercion and even violence in order to get what they want, just like authoritarian governements. Ultimately, this means that dogs are incompatible with a truly Anarcho-Socialist-Syndicalist worldview and, furthermore, dogs should be prohibited by the Anarchist Politbureau. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rl-yszPdRTk Here is...

The Parental Advisory label is unnecessary and repressive

Adam2isback
focuswall

I will argue for the case. I believe the parental advisory label is outright unnecessary, the reason being that before this advisory came, there were already adult-oriented shops with explicit albums and adult stickers. I think it's an unfair pressure on companies started because Tipper Gore wanted to ban music that wasn't to her liking....

stwadsworth27

I pay my tax . I fund the army that protects my family . I don't pretend , like some , that I can know everything. The Human rights of others are Important but are secondary to my own. What I'm saying is that humans are deluded if they pretend otherwise....
