God is a maximally great being, and by definition, you cannot conceive of anything greater than god.
'Most probable' simply means that it is more possible than its negation. If the theist side's arguments are more plausible than t...
Resolved: Homosexual Acts Are Immoral
1. Acceptance only
2. Opening arguments
4. Closing arguments/clash
Definitions: By "homosexual acts" I refer to sexual acts between members of the sa...
True love conquers all.
This is an expression which most of you are undoubtedly familiar with. But to what extent does such an expression hold merit?
For some, love is fleeting. For others, love is f...
I'd like to put forth the notion that there is a possibility that "Marsellus Wallace," a powerful mob boss in Los Angeles, looks like a b*tch. Other definitions will be put up more for connotation as the argument calls for. Sources can come from anywhere, and no suggestions will be made.

Third round...
The Father Should Not Have Say In an Abortion.
As PRO, I will be affirming this resolution by arguing that the decision should rest entirely on the mother.

The next speech will be for t...

Soundness means that the premises of the argument are true, and that the conclusion follows logically from the premises. God is defined as the timeless (therefore beginningless), immaterial, spaceless, omnipotent, and p...

The round structures should be as followed:
R1 - Acceptance and any opening remarks.
R2 - An explanation of your ethical system. There should not be serious engagement with the opposition's argument, though i...
