I believe that SN 1006 supernova and World War Two are well understood enough to not require definitions but if my opponent desires one that is fine.Good luck to opponent....

Varrack
vi_spex

Resolved: Knowledge is always obtained through physical experienceSince vi_spex has made several debates titled "know=physical experience", I challenge him to prove his point. All I need to do to win is to negate the resolution.Knowledge - awareness of fact or truth.Experience - physically encountering something. Pro may begin first....

Racism and slavery in America had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with each other

Adam2isback
GOAT_23_6

The racism that came to America had to do with feelings of white superiority that was brought with them from the West. As many immigrants started coming in big numbers (including African immigrants), many of the native white population feared their culture was going to be changed by "scum" races. Also there was the brutal conquest of Native American land by presidents like James Polk and Andrew Jackson. Abraham Lincoln was also a racist against Natives. During the Civil War, there was also...

Adam2isback

I will be arguing today that racism in America has always been white and non-white. Some of the biggest examples include the Trail of Tears, attacks on Japanese citizens because of their heritage, attacks on blacks, etc. http://www.aboutnorthgeorgia.com/ang/Cherokee_Trail_of_Tears http://www.gateschili.org/webpages/cwhite/resources.cfm?subpage=13733 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Thurber...

Determinism is true while Free Will is a fallacy

Tyler_Lemke
salam.morcos

I am of the opinion that every event that occurs not only has a preceding event that can be quantitative but also a proceeding event has the same ability and as such can be predicted if enough data were to be accumulated. The idea that nature is "random" is foolish at its core concept. I have absolute certainty that when rain falls from the sky it will eventually evaporate from the ground and fall from the sky once again. I know for a fact that if I put water into an environment that is 32 degre...

Do we really have free will?

990OliRox990
Peili

This is my first debate so I will just start with an introduction to what I believe and why I believe it. I believe that nobody really has free will and that all of their actions are predetermined. Everything in life abides the laws of physics and of science. Any experiment could theoretically be replicated if it had identical environments and the outcome could be predicted as it would have to be identical. Assuming the big bang is the correct theory for the origin of everything, then if t...
