Can anything be proven?

DebateMasterJ
Devils-Advocate

The method used to solve problems is the scientific method, which results in a conclusion. It is impossible for anything to be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt because: a) conclusions are biased b) conclusions can only be supported, not proven correct, by information gathered c) conclusions can be overturned by new information being discovered Just to be clear, my argument is that it is impossible for anything to be proven, true or false. In order for Pro to win the debate, they will h...

Is bullying, or being bullied, a function of a healthy society? Are our values becoming too sweet?

crswong888

Changing sociological norms and values of American society or culture seems to have a general trend towards the greater good. While this is a very crucial aspect of American integrity - freedom and justice - there is indeed a certain limit to how far we can progress this trend. At a certain point, we begin to regress; stripping away the justifiable freedoms of some and lending special treatment to others. I am not speaking of healthcare, welfare, 401K's - none of that. I am considering a much...

Purely logical debates are impossble

Can a flawed perspective be purely logical? The debate would resolve as soon as the thought experiment started. Debate is never reasonable by definition. Debate can be used to show a fault in logic, but if logic has no fault yet is wrong, that in itself is a contradiction....

Morality cannot logically exist without God

thejames
Pase66

Without God, it is impossible to have an objective moral standard. An atheist has no logical justification for a belief in right and wrong or to criticise anything on the basis of morality. If there is no God, human being a worthless. Life is no more valuable than non life. Rape is justified and encouraged if it produces offspring and helps to out breed your competitors. If evolution is true: sociopaths are the most well adapted people to reality. People should aspire to ridding themselve...

Abortion

a_janis1
angeloivy

Abortion is the killing of an innocent human being, the right to life is an inalienable right given to every innocent human being, therefore, abortion, as the direct result of the killing of an innocent human child, violates the inalienable right to life. Thus, abortion is wrong. I would like to argue against abortion. There is no layout other than that my opponent should first provide a retort to the paragraph stated above in round one. This is just a free discussion in a relaxed manner. Als...
