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.

Evolution and the Creation Could Both be True

Conservative101
chewster911

First round is for acceptance. The burden of proof is shared.It is Pro's job to show that macroevolution and the creation do not contradict each other and could thus both be true, while Con will try to find contradictions between the two and argue the case that if one is true, the other is not.This debate is not about proving/disproving macroevolution or the Bible model of the creation. ...

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...

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...
