Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal in the United States

Freeman
Contradiction

I want to begin by saying how delighted I am to be debating Contradiction on this very important social issue. It's good to be able to argue with someone who is so philosophically inclined. For my part of the debate, I'll be arguing that same-sex marriage should be legal in the United States. Accordingly, in this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no legally tenable reasons to ban same-sex marriage. And secondly, there are good reasons to think th...

does everything need a creator?

megatronnus
CivilianName295

The very existence of God has come into place because we didn't and still don't know who created the universe. But it is time to question, does everything need a creator? You may say yes because we have created many things such as the internet, laptop, site etc. But we have never created a planet, or made something out of nothing. Is it really that hard to think that the universe has no creator?...

Abortion Is Prima Facie Morally Wrong

Freeman
JoshBrahm

Allow me to begin by saying how pleased I am to be debating Josh Brahm. I'm sure that many of you will never get to read a more powerful case for the pro-life position than the case you will read in the course of this debate. And I only hope that I can do as well while I proceed to defend the pro-choice position. In this debate I'm going to argue that abortion is not morally reprehensible and should not be illegal, given the actual qualities that a human fetus possesses. Unlike a person, a f...

Did Jesus of Nazareth Rise From the Dead?

BTP47
ibis

Did Jesus rise from the dead? If so, it provides strong evidence for Christianity, and if not, then Christianity is certainly false. From a historical perspective, the best explanation of the facts is that Jesus rose from the dead. (This is my standard argument)-I shall NOT be arguing my case through subjective conversion experience, but history alone.-I shall NOT...

R: It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of many innocent people.

"It is the greatest good to the greatest number of people which is the measure of right and wrong." It's because that I agree with this quote by Jeremy Bentham that I urge an affirmation of the resolution. "It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of many innocent people." [Definitions] For clarity I pose the following definitions. 1. Morally permissible: conforming to a circumstantial standard of right behavior. 2. More: a larger quantitative amount...
