Abortion Is Morally Acceptable

myopinionisright1
sboss18

This is the definition given in any respectable medical textbook. To declare a beginning of life at any point after the fusing of a wife"s egg and a husband"s contribution is irrational and an exercise in sophistical chicanery. Only machines such as clocks and cars come into existence part by part. Living beings come into existence all at once and gradually unfold their world of innate potential. A living human person begins to exist at the moment of conception, even though only as a cell. What...

Sui_Generis

Well if you're a guy and you have sex with another guy and say "NO HOMO" It's not gay because of that statement. The phrase "no homo" literally means that whatever it's being applied to in that context is not homosexual, or gay. I'm interested to see what con brings up....

Have 10,000 debates yielded any knowledge?

TheUnexaminedLife
BeBraveandDreambig

This is the 10,000th debate. In the previous 9,999, do you think that any knowledge has been accumulated? I will argue that no, we are still uncertain of any facticity and have only assumed truths by arguing. You are free to respond against my propositions in any way you so conceive....

Objective morality is an incoherent concept.

Lupricona

Thank you for participating in this debate. I will be arguing in favor of the view that objective morality is an incoherent concept. The term "objective" is generally understood to mean something that is independent of observation and not subject to opinion or interpretation. An "objective" observer is expected to be totally impartial and unbiased. On the other hand, "morality" is considered to be a system of values and/or principles of conduct, along with associated prescribed consequence...

Aspects and variables needed to accounted for? culture? beliefs?, trauma? abuse? Learning disabilities? Emotional intelligence? I"d love to have you state your opinions....

God is omnipotent

Sidex
MagicAintReal

God is omnipotent 1st Round: Acceptance 2nd round: Argue existence of "God"(must be Christian God). 3rd round: Argue rationality of omnipotence. 4th round: Dispute opponents logic and type opinionated conclusions. Pro/Con will be able to use any source to define terms throughout the debate. Pro/Con can use any material from the opponent's previous debates. On a personal note, I know that I have been "abrasive", but this time, I would like objective voting, regardless of how you feel...

Is the white mind superior to the black mind?

spaceXgenie
shawnmccaul22

The white man has invented way more than the black man has, does this say anything about the white man superiority? Is there an explanation for the vast difference in the way which the white mind works? Did something happen in history that led to this disparity? Is there a scientific explanation for this difference in mindset? Or is it all just a mere coincidence?...
