Voluntaryism is correct.

GregVCross
Stephen_Hawkins

Here is the wikipedia description of it, which I agree with completely.

Voluntaryism (or sometimes voluntarism), is a libertarian philosophy which holds that all forms of human association should be voluntary.[1] The principle most frequently used to support voluntaryism is the non-aggression principle (NAP). It is closely associated with, and o...

Testing on animals has contributed to many life-saving cures and treatments. By using the pancreas of a dog, scientists were able to develop insulin which is a necessity for people with type one and type two diabetes (Animal-testing.procon.org). The polio vaccine was developed by testing on animals. If testing was not done on animals, the polio epidemic of the first half of the 1900s wouldn't have ended and the world would have lost much of that generation and the generations to come. We ha...

brian_eggleston
IAlwaysWinDebates

Transsexuals, ladyboys, transgenderists, cross-dressers, eunuchs and transvestites, hereinafter collectively known for convenience as "intersexuals", do not self-identify themselves with either human gender: that is to say; they do not consider themselves either male or female human beings and, since a human being is defined as a "man or woman of the species Homo sapiens" [1], that makes intersexuals non-human animals, doesn't it? Yes, of course it does, and there's nothing immoral, much les...

Holy Objective Morals Are Subjective.

Berend
Reprimand

I would like to open my statement saying that, this is a form of Theist vs Atheist debate. I do take kind enjoyment in them simply due you can learn a good amount of knowledge from both. Of course so long as you refrain from forcing your ideals in the shape of dogmatic phrases and statements. So I am defending the common Atheist argument to a common Theist argument to the Atheist regarding Moral that include the objective and subjective topics.I also would like you all, anyone r...

Singing for fun

philochristos
GodChoosesLife

I challenge thee to a singing duel! We each must sing three songs, one song per round. Round 1 is for acceptance, parameters, and well-wishes. The rest of the rounds are for posting videos of us singing. Instrumentation is allowed as long as it doesn't drown out your voice, but no dubbing over your own voice, no multi-tracking, and no cloning yourself.Voters: Since songs require artistic license, no points should be given or taken for spelling and g...
