roark555
Smooosh

This debate should be accepted by self identified Libertarians ONLY. I will be arguing against the notion that Libertarians should support open borders, and my opponent will be arguing that libertarians in fact should support open borders. Round 1 is for acceptance, 2 for opening statements, 3 and 4 for rebuttals and additional arguments, and 5 for closing arguments....

Assuming there is no god, morality is subjective and laws are unnecessary

MonochromeEffigy
onlytwin

As an atheist, I do not believe in a god. Since I don’t believe in a god, I don’t believe in any kind of objective morality. Since I don't believe in objective morality, I don't believe there‘s any purpose in having laws to enforce one morality over another. Con will need to prove either a) there is an objective morality that doesn't come from a god, or b) laws are necessary. Definitions: God...

Animals should be given equal rights to humans

MrBurns2017
RedBlanket

This debate will have a few topics related to it. Not only philosophy, but health and ecology too. I understand that some societies rely on hunting gathering to this day and they cant survive without meat. But why societies that can can survive without it continue doing all that to them? I believe that animals deserve equal amount of rights as we are. We have no right to adapt the supremacist view that they are above us. Here is a list of things we do to them, which they dont deserve:...

Provide a coherent and reasonable definition of God2. Provide cogent arguments or evidence for the existence of GodI will explain what each of these mean.Requirement 1

dylancatlow

DEFINITIONS: Mental: Of or relating to consciousness (a "Mental reality" being one that is contained solely in consciousness Reality: That which is real - that which exists. In this debate, PRO will argue that there must be a non-mental reality, with "mental reality" used as defined above. I do not have to show that there are no mental aspects of reality, but that they must not be all there is in the makeup of reality. The first round will be for acceptance only - I will present...

Morality is indisputable.

3RU7AL
CosmoJarvis

Thank you for participating in this debate. I will be arguing in favor of the view that morality is indisputable. In order to qualify for this challenge, you must have completed at least 1 debate. (IFF) morality requires principles (AND) principles require truth (AND) truth requires fact (AND) fact requires indisputability (THEN) morality cannot be disputable. (IFF) morality is disputable then it does not logically qualify as morality per its own definition (and may be more precisely...

God Exists.

Barcafan99
NKaloms

Burden of proof is on the believer. Definitions: God: "Creator and ruler of the universe, a being omnipotent, omniscient, perfect, and eternal." Exists: " To have objective reality or being." The believer will be arguing that God (any God) exists in objective reality, I will be arguing that he doesn't. Rules: 1. No forfeiting 2. No ad hominems Only accept if you accept the definitions and terms of the debate. Message me if interested....
