Should under-18s have the right to vote?

TheCommonSense
BMHTheGreat

This is a debate for whether or not under-18s should have a right to vote. I am going to limit it to an age of 14 at the least, as this is around an age where we begin to learn the most, and is the end of Year 9. Here is my argument: I believe that under-18s should have a right to vote because many new laws affect them the most, unlike older citizens. For example, the BREXIT vote. The majority of voters who voted to leave the EU in Britain were over the age of 50, giving them 31 years left i...

Human beings are superior to animals

AnthonyH
ConservativeDialectic

Humanity in general has often struck me as being incredibly arrogant in almost everything we do. We assume our intelligence and ingenuity gives us the right to meddle with anything and everything that's within our grasp. We have this elevated view of ourselves in regard to nature. This notion that we have surpassed the lowly beast and are inherently "better", superior creatures that can lord over nature as we see fit. However, take the human being out of an ecosystem and nature thrives. Take...

If The Universe Has A Cause, That Cause Is A Personal Mind

Rational_Thinker9119
philochristos

I would like to debate Philochristos on this subject as I feel he is one of the most skilled Theists on this site. In this debate we will assume that the universe began to exist, and has a cause. It will be Pro's job to show that this cause is a personal mind, and my job to show why Pro's reasoning doesn't stand up to critical scrutiny. In Pro's last round he will simply put "no argument will be posted, as agreed." My opponent's first arguments will be posted in round one; no acceptan...

The Mechanics of Reality and the Numinous (God/spirituality/supernatural)

boozeandbabble

You may use a thousand words for a single lie, but the truth has no twin.-----Michael Bassey Johnson. What rationale can discern that the truth has no twin? Reality is as hard as nails.----C.S. Lewis It doesn't give two pence about our ideologies, sentiments, interpretations, and religious notions. Our propaganda means nothing to reality. From the wittiest philosopher to the tiniest gnat, everything has been subjugated by it. Every organism experiences reality from a different vantage poin...

Free will is incompatible with determinism. Free will is incompatible with indeterminism. No clever mix of determinism and indeterminism solve either incompatibility. Therefore, free will is an incoherent concept....

The husband betrays the wife

jonahofdeath
PowerPikachu21

A couple decided to commit suicide after a horrible life. They decided to jump off a building. When they got to the top, they both counted to three. The wife jumped, but the husband stayed. The husband watched the wife drop for about 8 seconds and then saw a parachute open. Who betrayed who?I believe that the husband betrayed his wife more than his wife betrayed him.Basically, the husband has betrayed the wife.I will argue my case, after this...
