if you dont have kids, you don't have a use.

Makaveli83
Berend

The meaning of life in it's simplest terms is to procreate. On this basis if you do not make life you have no meaning. Your of no benefit to mankind. Living and life are two separate things. By living you can have meaning through others. As mankind's survival is based on making new life if you do not have children then you are of no use....

God Probably Doesn't Exist.

n7
Envisage

I have picked the dark lord Envisage..I am creating this debate to test 2 new arguments that I'm not 100% sure about. One of them is partly original. Also because I haven't done a God debate in a while.Definitions:God: The sentient necessary eternal (has always existed and held his properties) omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent being that was the efficient cause of the contingent universe.Probably: Almost certainly; as far as one knows or can tell.

God Exists

I'm looking forward to some more interesting opposition on this topic, which is my strong suit. Voters must have an Elo score of 2,000 or more to vote, and you must have completed at least 1 debate to accept.

it is better to call babies who are just becoming aware, as agnostic than atheist

it is better to call babies who are just becoming aware, as agnostic than atheist(to be sure you could call them both depending on definitions, but this is focusing on having to choose which is better)the commonly accepted approach to atheism and agnosticism, is to say the first is no belief either way, and atheism as a proactive disbelief in God.the oxford disctionary defines agnostic as "a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God."

The first ultimate question is "How can we improve the human mind?"

Nabukadnezar
Wylted

I define "ultimate question" as being the most urgent question humankind could answer in contemporary times. I advocate that the current ultimate question is "How can we improve the human mind?", simply because solving this puzzle would result in us becoming capable of answering the next ultimate questions faster. I realize that such questions can be split further into smaller tasks. A pertinent example would be: "How can we acquire knowledge faster?". In order to avoid this "bureaucracy", I...

God vs. Naturalism

salam.morcos
tejretics

This debate should be impossible to accept. If you accidentally can accept, your acceptance without permission will lead to an automatic loss. I'm looking for a good debate. The topic of this debate: Is it more likely that God exists (Pro), or that naturalism is true (Con)? The debate doesn't require either side to prove that God or naturalism definitely and necessarily are true or false. The goal of this debate is to show which side's claim is more pro...
