dylancatlow

DEFINITIONS:Mental: Of or relating to consciousness (a "Mental reality" being one that is contained solely in consciousnessReality: That which is real - that which exists. In this debate, PRO will argue that there must be a non-mental reality, with "mental reality" used as defined above.

The Existence Of Everything Including Life Is Unavailing WIthout God

Ramos-7
Blade-of-Truth

Without God (a necessary being) the strive to survive in life is only avoiding the inevitable (Death) and is unavailing. You could die the moment, hour, day, month, year after reading this argument I am posting and have had a enjoyable/awful life, but why continue to survive and whether you are willing to go to irrationally lengths to live (like killing another person/being) if you believe you will one day die, reject life after death like Heaven just to life a bit longer before you die?...

The Parental Advisory label is unnecessary and repressive

I think it's an unfair pressure on companies started because Tipper Gore wanted to ban music that wasn't to her liking....

if you eat meat, you do not care about animals

calk95
BoggyDag

So this argument came about when my carnivorous flatmate said she's strongly against animal testing, because it's cruel. I questioned her on how can she be against this type of cruelty, but contribute to the slaughter of animals and nonchalantly chew on their carcasses. I believe if she really had empathy for other creatures, she'd give up eating meat. I also believe that meat-eaters genuinely feel no sympathy for creatures other than human beings. I'm not looking to argue whether or not ever...

Are Morals Relative or Absolute?

DebatorJack
Rubikx

The debate is over if Morals are Relative or Absolute. I would be arguing that morals are relative. The 1st round is merely just stating if you think morals are absolute/relative and accepting the debate. Actual hardcore debate with facts and reasoning for your opinion begins in round 2...
