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...

Morals are Objective

Is genetic modification playing god and therefor a unethical and a sin.


I'm not debating whether or not torturing animals and doing inhumane experiments for the sake of science is in anyway correct. I'm debating whether the basic act of changing the natural computer code that generates all forms of life is morally or religiously incorrect. Now, many people tend towards the idea that that genetic modification is blasphemy, a disaster waiting to happen because humanity is striving emulate god's grate power something that can only end in disaster, eg a zombie apocal...

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


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...

It is more likely than not that morality does not exist


Thank you in advance for accepting this debate! I will be arguing in the pro position for the following resolution. Resolved: It is more likely than not that Morality does not exist. I will be taking a stance on moral nihilism while it is my opponent’s job to find arguments to prove that morality is more likely to exist.

In this debate I will not argue on religious grounds. In this debate I will not argue whether or not abortion...

There Are Good Secular Reasons to Disallow Same-Sex Marriage


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...

The Grim Reaper Paradox


If there were an actually infinite number of Grim Reapers tasked with your death at a uniform interval from 1pm to 2pm, and the first Reaper strikes at 1:30, the second at 1:15, and so on... then you can't both live or die in that hour interval.
