It is unlikely that God exists


Ordered Complexity Seeing that you have already bested someone already on the matter of the existence of God, I would like to take up the argument that it is likely that God exists. First of all, I would like to say that I agree that a TV requires an explanation, in terms of "ordered complexity". We see that the parts of a television are ordered in order to carry out a certain function. The explanation is that someone, or some company built that machine, for a certain function, which is to en...

Funnier Jokes Wins.


Thanks to my opponent for requesting this debate. If anyone doesn't know how this works, it is quite simple. Each round, each debater posts one joke. Whoever has funnier jokes wins. I will be defending by title and wish good luck to my opponent. :) A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer,...

Illuminati Existance Debate


Okay, so I have absolutely no experience in the art of "debate", and I'm not even sure if this is qualified as a debatable topic. But hearing about the Illuminati has really been bothering me for the past month. I'm sorta of using this as a way of venting. So, I guess you can call this a "practice debate" if you will. Con is for the Illuminati not existing, and Pro is for the Illuminati existing. Uh, I'll let my opponent start with the first argument....

According to basic Christian philosophy, one should take a pacifistic approach towards warfare


I would like to open this debate to prove pacifism to Christians. When I say "basic Christian philosophy, I mean concepts that all Christian religions agree on, such as the factuality of the sayings of Jesus, and the teachings of the bible*. Specific teachings of denomination, such as "infallible" teachings of the Pope, and Mormon doctrine, however, are not to be assumed true. When one is to imagine the idea of pacifism, it should be thought of as an opposition to all forms of killing, but not...

The Libertarian view of Nonaggression supports the pro-life position.


I would like to present to you why the libertarian nonaggression principal supports the pro-life position. If abortion is an act of aggression, and I will make the argument that it is, then libertarians should oppose it. Although the the nonaggression axiom is often applied to foreign policy, it also deals with interaction between individuals. "No one has the right to initiate aggression against the person or property of anyone else". [1] I will also argue why the abortion debate is not one o...

The existence of God


I affirm that God exists. "The complexity of our planet points to a deliberate Designer who not only created our universe, but sustains it today."(1) The Earth...its size is perfect. The size of the Earth and its corresponding gravity holds an atmosphere of mostly nitrogen and oxygen gases, only extending to about 50 miles of Earth's surface. "It is at a perfect distance from the Sun; not too hot, not too cold."(2) It has the perfect gravity without the difficulty of heavy gravity and lo...

School uniforms ought to be worn in primary and secondary schools.


School Uniform: An outfit of clothing to be worn daily to school. "Traditionally, school uniforms have been subdued and professional.

( It is assumed that wearing the school uniform (as described above) does not conflict with any religious...

Communism > Capitalism


Communism vs Capitalism So, in this world I've set up for the purposes of the debate, both theories exist, but neither has been exploited. We are a group of people trying to decide the fate of our society, and we have two theories to consider: capitalism and communism. I am the half that is arguing for communism, Vi is arguing for capitalism. All we have are the ideas and writings of those like Adam Smith and Karl Marx. Communism in essence, is far superior to Capitalism. It embodies a sy...

Animal rights is an unjustified ethical doctrine.


I thank my opponent for accepting this debate - I've been wanting to have this debate with my opponent specifically for awhile, so I hope this turns out well. To put it simply, it seems that Charlie here is one of the more prominent PETA advocates on this website, with his slew of PETA debates. Since it seems to be quite evident that he is in favor of PETA, one can easily draw the conclusion that he is also an animal right's activist - after all, if he isn't then he'd most likely be a hypocri...
