It is more likely than not that an afterlife does not exist

socialpinko
thett3

===Resolution===The Pro will have the primary burden of proof in formulating and defending an argument against the existence of an afterlife. Con's burden will be to deconstruct and refute Pro's case. ===Definitions===An afterlife is defined as "the concept of a realm, or the realm itself (whether physical or transcendental), in which an essential part of an individual's identity or consciousness continues to reside after the death o...

Does Abortion Kill a Human Being?

JoshBrahm
jeeoh

I believe abortion kills a human being. We know the unborn is biologically a member of the human species, because she comes from human parents. Her DNA could also be tested in utero, and we would always find that she has human DNA. Most pro-abortion-choice people, however, agree with the above statement. Their issue is usually the question of whether the human entity killed is a "person," or a member of our species that has basic rights. The pro-choice ad...

Females are better people than males.

Kozu
LaughItUpLydia

If there were to be only one gender on earth, which gender would be able to live together more peacefully? If one were to look at the nature of females overall, and how they interact with the rest of their community, I believe most would agree females are much better than males in this aspect. They're often more less-aggressive, more empathetic, and able to better cope with reality. This debate will essentially be about who is better at living in a community of others, males or females....

God exists

zmikecuber
Envisage

Looking for a short devil's advocate debate... Normally I would be Pro on this topic, but I'd like to be Con for this one.The BoP is on Pro to show that God exists. God shall be defined as the transcendent mind which is all knowing and all powerful, and preserves the universe in existence.Since this debate structure is kindof funny, because my opponent has the burden, he can go first right away with his arguments.R1: Rules/Acceptance and openi...

Animal experimentation is immoral.

dwkwvss
whiteflame

The topic and the arguments for and against is actually pretty self-explanatory. I've been thinking about this, and I've come to the conclusion that both sides of this debate have valid points that will make this debate very much enjoyable. I am not tolerant of any sort of name-calling or trolling. I am actually not a animal rights advocate. I'm here for the sake of battling logic to logic. If anything comes to condescension and belittling, I'm really not interested. 1st- round opening...
