The Argument from Religious Experience

popculturepooka
Envisage

Thanks to Envisage for agreeing to debate this important - and relatively under discussed - subject with me. (In all likelihood some form of religious experience probably is what most theists take to justify their religious beliefs.) I will be arguing that the argument from religious experience can give significant epistemic justification for believing in the existence of God. Envisage will be attempting to undermine my argument and show that the argument for...

Should doctor assisted suicide be legal?

Sebastian_Ley
Sapphique

This is my first debate, so I figured I would start off with a subject that is both fascinating and controversial. Doctor assisted suicide is the process of a medical professional euthanizing a patient to relieve them from pain, be it mental or physical. The debate will be structured as such: Round 1 is acceptance, round 2 is your main points, (no rebuttals), round 3 is rebuttals, and round 4 is closing statements. I am debating for the Pro side of this debate. I hope to have a good debate,...

Forget About 9/11 - Toby Keith DEBATE

BryanMullins
Ragnar

We have an obligation to every last victim of this illegal aggression because all of this carnage has been done in our name. Since World War II, 90% of the casualties of war are unarmed civilians. 1/3 of them children. Our victims have done nothing to us. From Palestine to Afghanistan to Iraq to Somalia to wherever our next target may be, their murders are not collateral damage, they are the nature of modern warfare. They don't hate us because of our freedoms. They hate us because every day we a...

BossCreeper
Negoshi8r

Atheist say that the big bang was caused by a cloud of gasses that exploded and created the universe as we know it but I say that it is the almighty power of my God Jesus Christ the alpha and the omega the way the truth and the life! And I will fight in the name of the lord to prove that this theory is dead to me because they are not paying attention to the fact that there was a great power working behind this theory and that is God...

Science Refutes God

n7natnat
TalkingWaffle69

The motion is science refutes God. I have the distinct advantage here of arguing in favor of the motion because in fact we have evidence, reason, logic, rationality, and empirical methods on our side, whereas the opponent has vague hopes and fears, and they're arguing in favor of a motion that's hanging on for its existence by mere shreds of emotional and ideological spaghetti, much like this type provided by the flying spaghetti monster, one of the equally irrational gods which science provides...
