Your knowledge about anything and everything is not unexpected

parvadhaa
esisCOA

Here is a propaganda which says that 'your knowledge about anything and everything is not unexpected." At every moment we get new knowledge. Hence such views should be opposed. One can see the document "the expected knowledge" here -> http://wikia.academia.edu/SivashanmugamPalaniappan/Papers/1236851/The_Expected_Knowledge And, I strongly oppose that statement....

The Death Penalty should be abolished

googlemabob
xxx200

I thank whoever accepts this challenge in advance; it's my first time debating on this website! The Pro in this debate will need to prove that Capital Punishment is overall detrimental to the United States' well-being. The Con will need to prove that the Death Penalty is beneficial to the United States' well-being. To clarify, by well-being I mean 'the state of being happy, healthy, or prosperous' (1). Round 1 will be for acceptance, Round 2 for opening arguments, Round 3 for rebutta...

SethBedeGB
rogue

Life is NOT Cheap.. It is Dearer to God than anything except Creation itSelf?!.. The right to Life should be ABSOLUTE!.. This does Not, neceSsarily apply to Unborn Life, but Does apply to "Established" Souls?!.. In such a Case where a Soul has Sufficient "Value" then it has sufficient, "Claim" to Living Existence, RepreSentative of that Value AND More!.. Life must be allowed to have its doman of "Worth" at the Position it Requires?!.. AND Continuity to the limits of its "Extent"! This, Must rema...

Creation over evolution

HelloKitty
steviemarie

Many of there therioes we see today...are indeed found in the bible...The Bible states that God created life according to kinds(Genesis 1:24) how God refers to "kinds" agrees with the scientific observations.."THERE ARE HORIZONTAL GENETIC BOUNDARIES BEYOND WHICH LIFE CANNOT VARY"..dogs produce dogs...roses produce roses and so on...WE DON'T SEE ONE "KIND" EVOLVING INTO ANOTHER "KIND" AS EVOLUTION SUPPOSES why are we no longer evolving or anything in that matter. SCIENTIST THEMSELVES ARE PROVI...

A New Radical Justice System

RationalMadman
Beginner

When I was a little boy, say five years old, I would be what most would consider a highly philosophically-minded child. When my teacher told me that I should put my hand up to ask a question I asked her why, when she got annoyed she would just tell me to shut up and sit down (in kinder words than the ones I proposed). However, I never understood the rule, nor did I feel the need to obey it... Because being shut up and told to sit down isn't truly terrifying. On the other hand, if I had been...

You should follow Stoic principles.

Tim1632
ehorton

Stoic doctrine states that we should detach ourselves from our emotions and only worry about what we can control. If we follow this school of thought we will not waste our time on things that are futile, but only worry about that things that we have the capacity to control ourselves. By doing this we will live a better life because we will no longer waste time on what is out of our control, and therefore we will use our time concentrating on what we can, which will lead to better use of our time...

You should follow stoic principles.

poppinoffgrounds
ashtronomy

I'm advocating that you should follow stoic principles; chiefly, the principles of apathy which is the basis of all stoic philosophy: one should neither suffer pain nor pleasure. The reason why stoics advocate this is because they believe humans incorrectly assume that pleasure is good and pain is to be avoided; instead of actually determining what pleasures are good, they bypass the issue by simply saying that you should not be a victim of them. For the stoics the possibility of being a victim...

Non-Christians and the laws of logic.

Hezekiah_Ahaz
Zbot

My argument is that non-Christians can't account for the laws of logic. They are secretley relying on Christinaity to make sense of these laws. All three rounds can be used for obejctions/rebuttals If you are younger than 18 don't bother....

Problem of philosophy: Appearance or reality?

Hezekiah_Ahaz
TheOrator

If you are under 21 don't bother. My argument is that all forms of non-Christian thinking can't account for truth since they can't account for reality without reducing themselves to irrationality. 1. rebuttal/arguments 2. cross examination 3. closing/arguments...
