Is sinning necessarily bad?

KDDebater
Pest

Let's start with a definition; what is good/bad? I think the best definition is "something that creates happiness/unhappiness, that heals/hurt, that cause pleasure/suffering". If your definition was "that is in accordance/against to the commandments of God", I'd say that it has no meaning, that it is pointless. Being good or bad with this last definition has no consequences. Stealing, raping, and killing are bad, I think we all agree on this. But they are not bad because the bible says it...

This House believes that parents should be able to kill their children during a time of famine

TheOriginalBob
NDECD1441

When South Sudan was rocked by extreme famine, I as the Proposing side would much rather end the suffering of young children prematurely than to extend it, and I believe that my side proves this most effectively under the following points: I'll firstly be speaking about how we ought to do this due to circumstance. I'll then be dealing with rebuttal in my second round and be telling you how due to this circumstance you should therefore be able to be taken out of it. I'll also then be dealing w...

Do you think the sign "everyone is welcome here" should be a national symbol since it represents racial and ethnic equality? Something is reinforcing stereotypes and insinuating racial and ethnic tensions to ignite a potential civil or class war. Therefore, a national symbol may help ease the tensions and quell the ethnocentrism and xenophobia. Do you the sign "everybody is welcome here" as seen in various progressive cities, would be a good national symbol for muc...

Yes. Women are people to. I am sure this has already been a debate but I really wanted to see if I could get people to change their minds. I think it's sad even 21% thinks women shouldn't.

Is faith healing immoral?

bruno_the_destroyer
Torvald

I believe that faith healing is an immoral practice; it is demonstrably based on falsehoods, such as the idea that western medicine is flawed, and that the solution is based on faith. despite this, on its own, this fact does not make it immoral. The immorality comes from when you charge someone money for a result that you know they will never gain. This makes it a fraud. Especially if you take money off of the terminally ill....
