This House Asserts That Ontology Necessitates God!

Ajabi
RoyLatham

Shalom Aleichem! The idea of this debate started with me contacting Roy for a debate. Given a list of topics he believed that the best topic to discuss is the Ontological Argument. I believe I should mention the Spirit of the Motion is whether the study of Being, with relation to the studies of Ideas can make God a necessary conception. There are some rules which both parties must accept: 1. The first round for Roy is acceptance only, and to share any pleasantries. He accepts the defin...

Homosexual acts are immoral

Noumena
GarretKadeDupre

Pro will offer their opening arguments in support of the resolution in R1 and will not post in R4 so as to maintain equality in case length.===Definitions===Homosexual acts refer to consensual sex acts between two or more members of the same sex. To keep the debate focused I will obviously not be defending male on male or female on female rape. I will only be defending consensual gay sex against the charges of immorality.

No cursing. No forfeiture. No personal attacks. You can only show up to 5 follow...

Hey there! I am new here. I have viewed some debates on this site and I have educated myself about how to debate over the last week or so. I apologize if my debating style is poor - with practise comes perfection! I am only 15. If you are significantly older than I am, don't hesitate to accept, I want a challenge :)People tend to define things in the first round, and assign a format to the debate; I will do the same!"God" - "a person or thing of s...

Resolution: I contend that everything/anything can be construed as art. Format First round is acceptance. Second round is arguments. Third round will be rebuttals. Fourth round is for answering to rebuttals and conclusion. Definition Definition of Art will not be given, as the very definition is what is being debated. No usage of dictionary will be allowed as an argument to define art. Also merely pleading to authority will not count as an actual argument unless supplemented by th...
