Ajabi

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This debate entitled: This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts are Immoral. This is ROUND 3 of WODC hosted by edeb8 and larztheloser. Now I believe that I should clarify the rules, the order, and some principle definitions which will be referred to throughout the debate. 1. The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no refutations will be allowed in the first argument. 2. The first round is for rules, orders, definiti...

I believe that it is like extra credit. If you choose to believe in god and he turns out not to be real. Oh well. You still lived and you didn't really loose anything. If he does end up to be real, then you are welcomed into this thing or way of life that has you so interested in your religion....

Dookieman
Toviyah

First round is for acceptance. Second round is for opening statements. Third round for first rebuttals. Fourth round for second rebuttals and concluding remarks. Pro will argue that God doesn't exist and Con will argue that God does exist. God will be defined as the omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent, eternal creator and sustainer of the universe. Omnipotent means all powerful. Omniscient means all knowing. Omnibenevolent means all loving. Good luck! (:...

Objective Moral Judgements can be made in Moral Nihilism

Envisage

*Leave a message if you want to accept this debate*Details:I have been thinking for a while how to word this resolution, which is my own position in terms of moral philosophy. I am a Nihilist, and I think it's a rational starting position for making moral judgements. For example, I will make the claim the holocaust was wrong, and I make that as an intended objective statement. The BoP is on me to demons...

Toviyah
Envisage

Thanks Envisage for accepting this debate. First round for acceptance I'm pro, Envisage will be Con. BOP is on me. 'God' is the Deistic concept of God. (Creator, transcendent, powerful) Enjoy!...
