Are all people equal?

Sarah9019a
DawsonBruno

Hi! I've noticed a LOT of White Power stuff on the site, but I couldn't accept those debates. I disagree with the White Power movement and I thought it would be enlightening to have a debate. We will argue, Resolved: All humans ought to be treated equitably. I will support equitable treatment, you can oppose it in any way you choose (race-based inequality, gender-based inequality, etc.). Definitions are an argument, so I'm not including them here. Please be civil. BOP shared. I hope thi...

Logic should be taught at a younger age

J2mags
robin.murphy1999

I believe that Logic should be taught at a much younger age to improve critical thinking, arguments, and to open the door to different career choices such as programming and mathematics. A more educated populous is also good because people become more open minded and open to differing viewpoints. America seems to be lacking in these areas as shown by our world ranking for education and loss of more advanced jobs such as programmers and doctors. Our current polarization when it comes to social is...

It is unreasonable to believe in something that has no reason to exist.

Skeptologist
Sensorfire

Fun little debate purely focused on logical conclusions. I want to argue that it is absolutely Illogical for someone to believe in something which has not demonstrated any objective existence. By that I mean that anyone who experiences something they can not explain through their current understanding and fills it in with god, aliens, big foot, ghosts, etc. is committing intellectual suicide. Basically just giving up on reaching a real conclusion based on what is ACTUALLY happening in our u...

Inaction in the face of injustice makes an individual morally culpable.

Congratulations to That1User on making it to the final round of bsh1's Unique Topics tournament! I appreciate your patience in the delayed challenge, and I look forward to a very thought provoking discussion. As far as I can tell, the resolution is self-explanatory and the definitions are standard. I would like to disqualify the use of semantics. For example, a person being inactive due to physical or mental handicap is not sufficient. I expect my opponent and the audie...

How does ViceRegent rationaly know truth from fiction

Dirty-Morgs
FaustThe21st

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT VICEREGENT KEEPS VOMITING WORDS AND YET HAS NOT ANSWERED MY Q. ViceRegent loves to live under the delusion that he is the guardian of rationality. But how can he hold this title when he cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If he cannot do this, he is literally ignorant and the i...
