Jesus Christ is a "zombie savior".

In his forum, "Christian Intellectual Dishonesty", Izbo10 commented, six days ago,"Sorry [,] grammar police, but if you don't like those words [,] don't believe in [C]hristianity. They are just saying the sy thing in a different way to show how stupid the belief really is. Sorry [if] it offends you, but I am not the one defending a zombie savior" [1]. Please note that the grammatical corrections, insertio...

On balance, Anarchism is More Humanitarian than State Planning

Sieben
Danielle

Every broad argument will be tagged with a letter/number. Elucidation: D1) On balance: Keep the framework reasonable. Ignore the possibility that aliens could invade and destroy every society beginning with consonants. Employ ceteris parabis assumptions. D2) Anarchism: The lack of aggressive monopoly. In this conversation, aggression is distinct from coercion according to the Libertarian ethic. The forceful defense of self ownership and peaceful homesteading is "coercion", not "aggre...

It is probable god exists

izbo10
Contradiction

My opponent must show that it is probable that their is a god. It is his burden of proof as he is making a positive claim. All I have to do as con is show that his evidence is false. The Pro will not respond in the last round. Any shifting the burden of proof fallacies by pro and he will forfeit the debate. All seven points will go to con....

Are the presents of Hell not worth dodging this life for everlasting life?

Thank you, read this carefully It may change you? Hell! Through out history it has been thought of as the most foolish and regretful place to end up out of the whole existence of everything. If I was confronted with a slight possibility of a place like this where you end up after your "first death" I would consider to think about the wording of "what if and "if only". Although there is no proof in the physical world that such a please existence. It would be wise to try and understand the str...

"Marijuana, Cocaine and even Heroin Should be Legalized." -Ron Paul

I'm going to pull a Ron Paul here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtNc-IFJPU0 Structure: R1) Acceptance, Analysis, Structure and Rules R2) Opening arguments R3) Rebuttals and Conclusions Analysis: Let's keep this to only to the philosophical basis for the role of government in people's lives -not about the impact of drug use, why drugs are bad, etc. That drug use is harmful to the body is not in dispute. The issue of contention for this debate is whether the government has a right...

Evolution is a coherent theory with significant amounts of data to establish its veracity.

GodSands

Jacoby claimed in another debate comment: "I'll just call you Con. You called the debater ignorant. He just doesn't understand. Well. based on your comments. You certainly aren't in any position to call anyone ignorant. Arrogance becomes the astute know -it -alls that use dogmatic rhetoric to insure your position. Fact is. Not one thing you stated is a fact on evolution. You]re simply parroting what you THINK you know. That is the problem with amateur debaters. Ever read Punctuated Equilibrium?...

On balance, capitalism is more humanitarian than communism

J.Kenyon
charleslb

Charleslb has an awful lot to say about capitalism (and capitalists), but he has yet to take on any of the experienced libertarian in a formal debate. The burden of proof is equal: we both must prove the merits of our respective systems and demonstrate their superiority over the alternative. == Definitions == Capitalism – economic system characterized by voluntary exchange, private ownership, and the prohibition of force, fraud, and coercion. Note: while there are other definitions o...

Insulting someone by calling them a liar is materially different from other insults

This topic originated from long, tedious discussions between PRO/CON. I adamantly stick to PRO on this position, whereas CON is not fully convinced. This debate aims to further convince CON of PRO's case.Resolution:Insulting someone by calling them a liar is materially different from other insults.Definitions:...
