Thanks to Sargon for proposing this topic.

The definition of Physicalism can be found here -- http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/physicalism/ I look forward to an interesting debate!...

I recently debate this topic with N7. (1) As is was my first debate and I am working to impove I would like to try my hand at this topic again. I did make a subtle change. The resolution is now a question. This is important to notice as I want the burden of proof to be shared in this debate. It will be my burden to argue that it is morally permissable, while my opponnet will need to argue that it is not. I have set the character limit to 6,000 and the time between rounds to 3 da...

Morality is an objective truth

doorhinge
Elias_is_the_llama

Alright, so this is my first debate. The first round is simply for acceptance, followed by opening arguments, then rebuttals. It seems it's appropriate to define terms before the debate starts. The following definitions of terms will be used. Morality- principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior Objective- not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased I am taking the pro position for this debate,...

PointyDelta

I will argue that racism and priivlege are also two different things. "Privilege" is defined as "the advantage that wealthy and powerful people have over other people in a society"http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/privilegeMost white people are not wealthy. Most are commoners. Now a lot are "Friends"-watching racists, but racism is a tribal thing, not a matter of class. Priivlege deals with clas...
