Religion causes too much violence and is not needed in society.

MasterManav
JustBusiness

In 1095, Pope Urban II said that God had come to him, and said that the Bible had a mistake and that it was okay to kill, just not to kill other Christians. Whereas the Bible said that killing anyone was wrong. "Whatsoever ye do unto the least of these, my brethren, ye do it unto Me." This means that it is God"s place to judge others not ours, for him to decide whether or not to use violence. Sometimes they refer to texts, such as the Old Testament or Bible, where their God has killed many for d...

Politicians should be interrogated using truth serum regarding their actions

funny007
EXOPrimal

I support the idea that politicians with higher functions (president, congress etc) should be interrogated using truth serum regarding their actions when they choose to run for that function and after their term ended. I believe this would be beneficial to everybody. After discussion in comments, I would like to mention oxytocin as the truth serum. This is my first debate so I copied the structure from other ones. Feel free to post in comments anything you find wrong. DEBATE STRUCTURE Round...

Morality Objectified?

Sidex
distraff

Please forgive my apparent lack of education. I reserve the right to change my mind when presented with new information based on reason and logic. I will create a logic step attempting to prove the objectivity of morality. I have been searching for truth my entire life. I guess I'm just a kid trying to find his way in the world. I have always been trying to find the answer to "When should we act on what we know and don't know?" This is a question in which the answer implies why we do thin...

Should rhetoric and philosophy be taught in elementary school?

#First round is for accepting the debate.# So my opinion is that children should be introduced to philosophy and rhetoric at a younger age so they could better adjust to the mindset and so they would philosophise with greater adequacy and skill....

Relativism is a Logically Flawed Philosophy

Bishop1889
Capitalistslave

I wish to argue for the position that Relativism is a flawed philosophical concept, and will be defending and promoting Absolutism throughout my arguments. Arguments should be made in point form with supporting evidence written below, for the first round positions will be stated in point form only, further arguments will follow in rounds 2-3. Ad Hominem arguments will be tolerated. The opponent will construct their thesis in the first round, then resort to rebuttals and further arguments in the...

Everything is a result of chance and there is a robust illusion that God exists.

AllUnpowerful
HepEbolAids

The topic of this debate is that simultaneously everything is a direct result of random chance and there is a robust illusion that God exists. I will be arguing against the topic. Everyone please remember to keep calm and carry on... and to be polite. If everything is a direct result of random chance, for every detail of an illusion, it is a direct result of random chance that that detail doesn't destroy or prevent the illusion. The complexity of the illusion considered, the illusion wouldn't...

Anything is a hypothetical possibility

AllUnpowerful
X1

I will try to prove that everything is a hypothetical possibility. For something to cease to be a possibility, every hypothetical statement that concludes its truth must be proved false. However, there are infinite hypothetical statements that conclude the truth of anything. If this is even a possibility, then it is possible that anything is possible. If it is possible that anything is possible, anything is possible. Therefore, anything is possible. You can paste and run the Python 3 co...
