I am proposing astrology is untrue. By untrue I mean it cannot make accurate predictions about the future by which a mystical, ancient, or supernatural phenomena allows it to do so....

1. First round for acceptance 2. No new arguments in the final round 3. This debate should be impossible to accept. Finding a way to accept without permission will result in an automatic loss for Con. If you would like to accept, please say so in the comments section, and I will challenge you when I feel like it. 4. By accepting the debate, Con agrees to the following definitions... >> Collectivism- the philosophy that the interests of society as a whole should be considered ethicall...

itsmagyk

1. Objective value of anti-environmentalism The modern world's industrial economy allows for more than 7 billion people (and counting) to exist on this planet.

You live in a house made of wood, with heat from natural gas, you use electricity made from coal, g...

Any round forfeits will result in the forfeit of the entire debate unless the other individual pardons the other in a later round....

Children: Are they born atheist?

blackkid
ELDRITCH

All rounds are for argumentation; I will begin: Children are not born atheist. Atheism is defined as "The term "atheist" describes a person who does not believe that God or a divine being exists."

Belief is defined as "a state or habit of mind in which trust or confidence is placed in some person or thing" or "conviction of the truth of...
