Determinism is true while Free Will is a fallacy

Tyler_Lemke
salam.morcos

I am of the opinion that every event that occurs not only has a preceding event that can be quantitative but also a proceeding event has the same ability and as such can be predicted if enough data were to be accumulated. The idea that nature is "random" is foolish at its core concept. I have absolute certainty that when rain falls from the sky it will eventually evaporate from the ground and fall from the sky once again. I know for a fact that if I put water into an environment that is 32 degre...

Should abortion be legal, and if so, is it moral?

Billjunior
DanBe

In this debate, I, the instigator, will be arguing that abortion should be legal (in all counties), and that it is moral to have an abortion. For the purposes of the argument, let's define abortion as "the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy". Good luck to whomever may accept this challenge :) Opening argument- Many people state that abortion is killing an inncoent person. While that is true, it does not entail that therefore abortion isn't moral. The fetus's right to live, does not e...

GOD is not only a Religion

John_C_1812
MAD3

GOD is not just a word with a Religion ownership it is an axiom of numbers written down in a way that produces a result. The numbers are 400, 11, and 500, G, O, and D when placed in the axiom the numbers produce a sum, 89. The axiom has many uses that are not restricted to religion. Con will explain how GOD has only religious meaning while fact clearly shows numerical purpose outside of religion.

Humanity ought to allow animals access to basic rights.

Zaradi
phantom

Someone call the presses! Zaradi's not making an LD debate! Zaradi: Not exactly true, since this is basically the Sept/Oct resolution from last year but it won't be done in LD format. Definitions: Humanity - Fairly obvious. Ought - a moral obligation to do something. Animals - Non-human creatures (excluding insects and such) Basic rights - Right to Life, right not to be treated inhumanly, etc. Besides what consitutes "basic rights", all the definitions are fairly obvious. Seman...

Substance Dualism is true

Genghis_Khan
n7

"Substance dualists typically argue that the mind and the body are composed of different substances and that the mind is a thinking thing that lacks the usual attributes of physical objects: size, shape, location, solidity, motion, adherence to the laws of physics, and so on. Substance dualists fall into several camps depending upon how they think mind and body are related. Interactionists believe that minds and bodies causally affect one another" [http://www.iep.utm.edu/dualism/] Pro's burde...

Abortion

caraprawntoast

It's inhumane for someone to kill a living being when it has the potential for life and so much more, especially as the baby has had no chance to experience the joys of life. It is no different to murder....
