Humanism is a better ideology then Feminism

A_Flying_Toaster
YaHey

For this first round, I will merely say to my opponent; good day sir or madame. I wish you luck in this debate. I will begin by going over the definition of humanism and feminism. Humanism: An outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems. Feminism: The advocacy of wom...

Is Homosexuality Wrong?

foreduca
MailboxVegetable

Firstly, I want this debate to be in some sense philosophical. By philosophical I mean that we are arguing in normative ethical terms, not meta-ethical. Therefore this debate presupposes that there are absolute moral values and truths. Secondly, I'd rather not have a debate if the only thing we are doing is throwing random ad hominem attacks at each other. Lastly, my argument. P1: If there is a class of moral issues that we we have no reason to say are wrong, yet they are wrong, then,...

Shalom Alecium! This debate is regarding Logical Positivism the theory that is used by Hume, Russell and in general all empiricists, et cetera. It is also known as Logical Empiricism. It is defined as: 'Logical positivism and logical empiricism, which together formed neopositivism, was a movement in Western philosophy that embraced verificationism, an approach that sought to legitimize philosophical discourse on a basis shared with the best examples of empirical sciences.

Trolls in sheeps clothing.

I believe that most of the troll labeling bullies are actually the trolls, dressed in politically correct sheep clothing. 5 rounds, no limits, or personal insults allowed. No rules, as most often the rulers break the most rules. Get your gumption up! Lets have a war of words!...

Should Cryogenic Freezing be Humanism's ideological answer to death?

thehumanistpreacher
Wylted

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dN1Fp_H89k Above are my arguments laid out in video form. The Humanist ideology needs to adapt and develop. There needs to be a shift from the question of who has the burden of proof of what happens when you die? Whether or not it should be the responsibility of humanists or those with religious beliefs. A more positive question should be, "What is science's current answer to death?". The answer is clear, the solution even clearer. Cryogenic Freezing may soun...

3 sides of the coin

Max.Wallace
PauseAndThink

There are 3 sides to a coin. Heads. Tails. The edge. We perform coin tosses to make decisions sometimes. Sheeple pick a side. Never the edge. This debate is about the tendency of the human species to choose a side, which the sheeple do, so they can be declared by the elites to be winners. The elites, those in the .000001% income bracket that attempt to control us, use this tendency to create more power for themselves. Don't listen to the propaganda and choose a side, eventually you...

People cannot be sure that they will save a best friends life until they are in the moment

Chargers

So many people will say that they would give their life for that of a friends but this type of thing cannot be answered directly with a definite yes but more with a "I would like to believe that I would". This is completely a situational type of thing where the situation that you are put in effects the decision that is made. You cannot be sure of any of the answers that you give until you are put in that moment....
