MakeDebatingGreatAgain
TheUnexaminedLife

I will be arguing that subjective morality should be preferred to objective morality, for reasons to be discussed in my arguments. My opponent will argue for moral objectivity/moral realism. (Moral realism falls under moral objectivity.)Subjective morality/Moral Relativism is defined as: Moral codes and laws can not be true of false from an objective viewpoint, but only from an individuals subjective viewpoint.

The kalam cosmological argument is sound

Miles_Donahue
Moelogy

After a long sabbatical, I'd like to return to Debate.org, and this time by arguing against the kalam cosmological argument. I'll argue that Pro cannot show that the premises of the argument are true, and that's about it. First round, Pro will post his opening statement, and then not respond in the fourth round to make an equal number of contributions....

After a long sabbatical, I'd like to return to Debate.org, and this time by arguing against the kalam cosmological argument. 1. Everything that begins to exist has a cause. 2. The universe began to exist. 3. Therefore, the universe has a cause. I'll argue that Pro cannot show that the premises of the argument are true, and that's about it. Pro will begin their argument in this opening round, and then not post a response in round four....

SuperTrooper44
Jonbonbon

Not all conspiracies are true and not all conspiracies are false. Here, let me show you examples, SJM. Some Conspiracies Are True: For Example, Americans had a conspiracy that Nixon was going to break into Watergate, That apparently was true, Nixon had to face impeachment trials and hearings in 1974; Later, Nixon resigns and admits that he made a plan to break into Watergate. Some Conspiracies Are False: For Example, During The War on Terror, Some Americans had the conspiracy that Georg...

SufferPeacefully
Coveny

There is absolute truth. Not everything is a matter of perspective. In order for you to say or be anything, even to criticise you must exist. If you don't exist, you cant do any of these things. Therefore existence is a fundamental truth. With that fundamental truth comes the ability to lie (existence is not an absolute truth, wich requires you to exist in order to say that)....

Some governments have tortured adversarial people. Organizations hurt employees or students who misbehave as members and hurt people who infringe on organizations' rights, such as copyrights, trademarks, and patents. People, such as parents, hurt members of their own family, such as their children or adolescents, who misbeh...
