This house believes ethical egoism is false

Stephen_Hawkins
YYW

The rules of this debate are rather straight forward:1) There is to be no use of separation of arguments through subheadings or headings, or any technique other than basic essay writing (that is, paragraph-by-paragraph). 2) The definition of ethical egoism is roughly that moral agents value only their self-interest. This definition may be contested, but massive departure from its meaning counts as a forfeit of the debate.3) 4,000 characters, f...

Homosexual acts are immoral

Noumena
GarretKadeDupre

Pro will offer their opening arguments in support of the resolution in R1 and will not post in R4 so as to maintain equality in case length.===Definitions===Homosexual acts refer to consensual sex acts between two or more members of the same sex. To keep the debate focused I will obviously not be defending male on male or female on female rape. I will only be defending consensual gay sex against the charges of immorality.

The Ontological Argument For God's Existence Is Sound

Rational_Thinker9119

RulesMy opponent will present any one version of the Ontological Argument and try to prove the existence of God. If he/she succeeds then he/she wins the debate. If I sufficiently undermine the argument to the point where my opponent has not established God's existence with the version of the argument chosen, then I win the debate. The first round is for Pro's opening argument. Additionally, in order to ensure that we get the same amount of round...

Vernich
Sswdwm

If there were an actually infinite number of Grim Reapers tasked with your death at a uniform interval from 1pm to 2pm, and the first Reaper strikes at 1:30, the second at 1:15, and so on... then you can't both live or die in that hour interval.
