Does God Exist?

123456789123456789

Round 1 is to accept the debate. The debate officially starts in the second round. I wish I could put this under philosophy and religion, but that is not possible. Anything goes, pretty much. For the record, I will be using a presuppositional apologetic approach to this topic. Round 1: acceptance Round 2: opening arguments Round 3: rebuttals Round 4: rebuttals and defense Round 5: closing statements...

The Analytic-Synthetic Dichotomy is Not Rational

ShabShoral
dylancatlow

DEFINITION:Analytic propositions are true by virtue of their meaning, while synthetic propositions are true by how their meaning relates to the world.No other terms will be predefined - the rest will be argued in the debate itself. The BOP will be split - I will have to show that the dichotomy falls, while my opponent will have to refute my case and provide reasons why it stands.

Presupposing Islam is true, an eternal hell is justified.

Ahmed.M
popculturepooka

= = = = = Introduction = = = = =This debate will be about the justification for the conception of hell fire in Islam. I will argue that Hell fire conceived of in Islam, a conscious eternal torment is morally justified. My opponent may build a case of his own, but it is sufficient for him to only refute my case. ...

Resolved : A Christian God is necessary in order for objective morality to exist.

Mikal
Lupricona

BOP is on Pro. We kind of threw back ideas as to what the resolution should be, but we finally went with this one. Christian God - The Judeo-Christian God (Yaweh, etc) Objective morality - is the idea that a certain system of ethics or set of moral judgments is not just true according to a person's subjective opinion, but factually true Pro shall begin his arguments in round 1 and pass in the final round to even out the rounds. He has the BOP as he is the affirmative in this de...

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...

Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible

Fox-McCloud
lit.wakefield

Resolution Abortion Is Generally Morally Reprehensible In this debate I will defend the view that it is generally morally impermissible to deliberately terminate the pregnancy two weeks after the moment of fertilization; until the presence of the primitive streak one might argue that the zygote is not definitely an individual — in that period it is yet able to split into twins. In this debate I will not argue on religious grounds. In this debate I will not argue whether or not abortion...
