A theory that claims to contain the only values that really justify laws and actions

Fabrice
Vapeo

This is a theory that claims to contain the only values that really justify laws and actions First, for this theory I have to define how to justify (objectively), because if we have different ways to justify objectively, we won"t reach anything. Well, justifying has stations. We"ll now determine those stations. The last station is the result of justifying, constitutional or moral laws and actions. The first station is facts, because if something isn"t justified by facts it isn"t objective....

I'm always right

Quadrunner
The-Male-Man

Pretty self explanatory, and hopefully challenging. I'm going to argue that I'm always right. You refute it. Don't think I'm right? Tell me I'm wrong....

I aim to show that it is in general unethical to have children. First, having children contributes to population growth. The world's population is projected to reach 10 billion by 2100, and Earth can support 10 billion people if everyone is eating nothing but grains. It would only support 2.5 billion if everyone were eating like Americans are eating now [1]. This is assuming we don't find a way to drastically increase the human lifespan, and we very well might. Either way, there would be litt...

luci_daisies

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...

Should torture be allowed to prevent terrorist activities? Why or why not?

TheMineA7
JustAnotherFloridaGuy

Would you rather have 1 person suffer and save over 100 people or have over 100 people die and terrorist have life long sentence? Torturing the one terrorist will prevent further terrorist activities by letting us be prepared for them. Thus, increasing safety of the general population. We can get so much information about them and erase their threat over us....
