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...

Voluntaryism is Morally, Economically, and Socially Better for Society than Statism

StatismHeretic
Melvinotis

The Debate will follow a few simple guidelines. When stating a fact or statistic, sources must be posted. If one side resorts to personal attacks (Ad hominem,) they forfeit the debate. One's "view" or "opinion" can be "irrational, stupid, or retarded," but the person them self is not. (I don't think we will have a problem with this.) I will post my opening statement to address my opinion on the topic, and I will expect the opposition to post their opinion in the same manner. I will follow with m...

Our youth is our future.

In this debate, I will argue that our youth is our future. I will speak of how the elderly represent ideas that no longer fit to this modern world we live in. This is, in a sense, a Liberal vs. Conservative debate, but it is also about much more than that. It is about the future of humankind. My opponent will argue that the youth is not the future and that we should rather trust the people who h...

Victimless crimes are not crimes at all.

Hello all. My premise is that victimless crimes are not crimes at all. A victimless crime is an action that is currently criminal, but one that harms no one other than the individual(s) willingly participating in said activity. Examples of such crimes are drug use, prostitution, and suicide. Individuals are still held accountable for subsequent actions that interfere with the autonomy of others, similar to current laws that apply to persons under the influence of alcohol. I look forward to...

There Are Good Secular Reasons to Disallow Same-Sex Marriage

Contradiction
HonestDiscussioner

HonestDiscussioner and I have agreed on terms. I will launch immediately into my opening statement.~The state regulates marriage for a reason. It dispenses benefits for a reason. Understanding what this reason is will tell us what criteria are and are not relevant to marriage, and thus whether any rights are being denied. If the state excludes same-sex couples from entering into legal marriages on the basis of criteria relevant to the public purpose of marri...

Vegetarianism

lucasd_j
TheMaster_Debator

I have always felt that the arguement against vegetarianism were never sufficient and could have been much better. The arguement against vegetarianism was mostly taken up by fools who love mcdonalds too much and let their stomach's decide their principles thats why I felt it neccesary to publish my thoughts on the issue. I will be arguing on grounds of health, food shortages, morality and also a religous perspective.Firstly, I understand that the arguments given proclaiming that...

What is Undesirable May Very Well Be Appropriate

mrsatan

BackgroundNothing specific, this is just something I've been mulling over recently. Many people consider what is undesirable to be wrong or immoral, and this debate aims to demonstrate otherwise.This is a short debate that is impossible to accept in order to screen out people who forfeit or will troll. If you would like to accept this debate, either PM me or leave a comment in the comments se...

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...
