Does God exist?

Mason0612
ChuckHenryII

Well, where do I begin....... I was born a catholic but when I was 14, I looked at the world, and noticed something is lacking in the credibility of religion. I am 16 now, and still attend a catholic school, but I am now an atheist. Here are some of the many things that I see about religion and God. 1. Scientific evidence has disproved many biblical claims such as the earth being 6000 years old, when it's actually more then 4 billion. We know this due to carbon dating and radioactive dat...

Public Forum, October Topic: Poverty Reduction vs. Environmental Protection

Clockwork
philosphical

NOTE: Disregard any contextual inaccuracies (my partner and I) that result from the direct usage of in-round formalities within both debaters' first respective speeches. To my opponent: feel free to copy and paste your in-tournament PRO case if you already have one prepared. In resonance with Public Forum conduct, I ask my opponent to exclude any attempts of refutation in his first speech. Resolution: When in conflict, the UN should prioritize global poverty reduction over environmental p...

Led Zeppelin.....The Greatest Band Ever

theitalianstallion
manutdredseal46

Led Zeppelin is hands down the best band to ever grace us with their presence on this earth. Jimmy Page is arguably the best guitarist ever. The late Bonzo was and still is the greatest drummer of all time. Plant was the first true metal vocalist with his distictive high pitch. And last but not least, JPJ, the most underrated musician of the modern era; great composer and played many different instruments. But a band cannot have success with just very talented members, it needs chemistry, consis...

Evolution, the theory that all life is the result of purely undirected processes, is probably false.

SnoopyDaniels

Science is a methodological approach to understanding the properties and behaviors of the physical world. The scientific method relies on hypothesizing based on already known facts, making predictions based on this hypothesis, and testing the hypothesis via experimentation. The scientific "truth" is that scientific theory which best explains the phenomenon in question, where "best" is defined as "most adequate." Unfortunately, this can often be subjective. Nevertheless, when applicable cases ari...

God is the Best Explanation for Morality

Contradiction
CosmicAlfonzo

In this debate I will be arguing for one major contention: God is the best explanation of morality. By that, I mean that the existence of objective moral facts is best explained by positing the existence of a supreme being. By "best explanation." I mean it is superior to competing theories in terms of its explanatory scope, explanatory power, plausibility, less ad hocness, accord with already accepted beliefs, and comparative superiority. [1]I will be defending two arguments, th...

Human cannibalism is morally wrong.

Yvette
Cerebral_Narcissist

I disagree with the belief that cannibalism is morally wrong. In round one we will agree on anything that needs clarifying, agree to not rely on semantics, and to be civil. In the continuing rounds we will debate. Arguments will not be presented until round two. Human cannibalism is the eating of one human by another human. For the purposes of our debate we will focus on dead humans. I look forward to a good debate....

Sarah Palin would be a good president of the United States.

Freeman
RoyLatham

In the lead up to the 2008 presidential election, Senator John McCain was in need of a running mate that would serve as his vice president. And given the extremely competitive nature of that race, McCain was in need of someone that would give him his desperately needed popularity boost. From an outsider's perspective, it would seem that his advisor's criteria for deciding a vice presidential candidate was fairly straightforward. They had to pick a nominee that would sufficiently sway evangelical...
