God Exists (Cosmological Argument)

MBill
epicemmy9

In this debate I will be contending for the theistic worldview at the exclusion of the atheistic worldview. Although I am a Christian, I am not here arguing for Christian particulars. The Cosmological Argument is perhaps the strongest of the arguments for God"s existence. Its premises enjoy both philosophical and scientific backing, and its conclusion is certain. If this argument works, then it is logically impossible that God doesn"t exist. This is very strong language, and it is meant to b...

Equality vs. Freedom

JuniusNing
TheMarketLibertarian

The point that supporters of personal freedom routinely miss is that when the tax laws governing an economy favor wealthy business owners then fewer consumers are able to afford the products they sell. However, if these same proprietors pay their employees a decent living wage and are taxed an equal percentage from their earnings as the middle and lower classes are required to do then consumerism rises, more products are sold and the rich become a LOT richer. Everyone benefits....

First, I'd just like to thank everyone who is reading this debate for their time and thank my opposition.I know it sounds silly, but homework could be a major reason for students being poorly educated or mentally unstable. Crazy right? Well, read on.Let's start with stress.We all know that the mind learns best when it is relaxed and happy.

My phone was stolen, not 'Given away'

JKboii
Resphe

A few days ago, my 'friend' said he could fix my phone, because the battery was swollen. So I lent it to him, and since I had to give him my password, he hard reset my phone, with all of my family photos and storage. He then paid 50 dollars to get it fixed, and put HIS account on it. He said if I wanted it back, I'd have to pay, so I got his money, and then he said it's not for sale. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but can I have some feedback so I know what to do?!?!...

The Electoral College

Prestigiously-Poor
paintballvet18

In this debate, I will argue that the way the electoral college currently works is not a good way to elect the president. I would prefer to debate with someone genuinely supportive of the electoral college to better understand both points of view. Please keep the debate civilized and on topic, so don't be partisan on other topics. The burden of proof is shared, meaning that I have to prove that the electoral college is bad, and you have to prove that it is good. Round 1 is going to be accept...

Cobalt14
WhyAbhorReality

I am looking for someone who would like to debate that microagressions are a real issue and one that requires "safe spaces" in places like collage campuses. This person should be prepared to argue what qualifies as a microagression, how and why they are a real issue, and what the consequences of a microagressive statement might be.The first round of the debate will be used to explain our side of the debate, the second round will be used for a rebuttal, and the third round should be used to reply...
