'defense of others' is too limited in practice, bob the serial killer should be killed in this hypothetical bob is a serial killer on the run and's shown every reason he'll continue killing. you see him by chance at a state park. a high reason to think if you try to call authorties he will get away. u have a gun- moral to kill him? remember, 'defense of others' as a legal and moral system is often said to be only permissible if the pending harm to another is 'imminent' which usually is sai...

Given the available data, denying the theory of evolution is completely unreasonable

Burncastle

This debate should be impossible to accept, comment if you want to debate. Some clarifications: - I will have most (if not all) of the BoP, but my opponent should feel free to present any arguments he/she deems useful, either against evolution or in favor of an alternate theory. - The first round is for acceptance and I would like my opponent to present his/her position very quickly. - My first argument will be mostly copy pasted from one of my earlier debate, so don't be surprised...

Is Homosexuality Wrong?

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,...

Since I will be using some basic-level economic theories and concepts, it would be to my opponent's advantage to have some background in the field; though a lack thereof should not preclude potential challengers.I propose the following structure:--Round 1: Acceptance and initial arguments. No rebuttals.Round 2: Rebuttals and additional arguments, if desired.Round 3: Fina...

most self identified political labels are meaningless

dairygirl4u2c
gytanasb

most self identified political labels are meaningless for most people, they are more a tool for psychological self identification than anything, more an indicator of the biases you've grown up with than a thought out label. i would bet if you did a study, you would find that there's a significant or even most people, who actually agree with each other more in actual substance than just their self proclaimed label. for example. if you tested this hypothesis. what i would suppose you woul...
