Only cowardly, manipulative scum reject comments.

Max.Wallace
JPat05

Most big self proclaimed judges do not accept comments from the peanut gallery here as they are all knowing, and commentators are numbskulls in their mind. Grow up and take your medicine, the words of the crowd. Only a succubus accepts no comments, as they feel they are irresistable....

AlternativeDavid

Con will present their arguments first as they will be attempting to disprove my claim that "it is impossible to prove anything."...

Absolute truth is the absolute truth.

Atmas
TheatreVirus

Absolute truth exists absolutely, regardless of the subjective nature of experience. The key here is the difference between what we consider facts and what we consider truth. Facts are conditional and changeable due to entropy, but truths, such as how gravity works, are immune to such change. Because such things are immutable, unchangeable, and constant, they are in fact absolute truths. The possible existence of another universe doesn't negate these truths because one could come up with any...

Fools make a mockery of things they do not understand.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
jakulanko

In this debate, I will offer evidence of many mockers and show that they do not understand what they are making a mockery of. I will copy and paste the comments of mockers and show they are fools as the arguments for my debate. Imitiation is the sincerest form of flattery. Several mockers on this site have imitated me by inventing a screenname as a direct response or imtitation of my screenname, or by imitating my debates. Of course these flatterers add a twist...

Science has rendered theism unreasonable

Jellon
Envisage

There is a chronic tension between agnostics and theists where both sides believe people who believe the other side are unreasonable. I often see names called by both sides. As one who believes both belief systems are reasonable, I intend to defend the position that modern science has not rendered theism unreasonable. To win, Pro must show that modern scientific knowledge provides overwhelming evidence that there does not exist a god. To win, Con must be able to reasonably address all argume...

This House Believes 0.99* Equals 1!

BoggyDag
Ajabi

Following my opponent's declaration of intent (see http://www.debate.org/forums/debate.org/topic/47713/ ), I hereby challenge him to deliver at least ONE logically, mathematically or philosophically acceptable argument for his outlandish claim that 0,99*=1.I say the two are not the same, and will prove so below. In order to win, my opponent has to disprove my argument and deliver one sound argument of his own, as disproving my proo...
