Moral Relativism (Pro) vs. Divine Command Theory (Con)

Surrealism
Philocat

This is a topic I would enjoy debating. My previous two debates over this topic ended in forfeiture by my opponent, so I ask that my opponent not forfeit in this debate. For this reason I have set it so that the contender must have a minimum of five completed debates to accept.Definitions:Moral Relativism - "[that] the truth or justification of moral judgments is not absolute, but relative to some group of persons" [1]Divine C...

Airsoft is the superior hobby compared to Paint-ball

FaustianJustice

I recently had accepted a challenge about this, and SOOOoooooo wanted to debate it fully. I will be taking the Pro stance in favor of Airsoft, the contender will be arguing on behalf of Paint-ball as to why that hobby is 'better'. This debate assumes that the contender is aware of the two hobbies, and is familiar with their styles of play. The debate is scheduled for 4 rounds, the first round is for acceptance and good faith terms to be established. The second is for opening arguments, 3...

'you black negro" --why is that statement racist?

Bill_O_reilly
TheNamesFizzy

Racism is OK as long as ts levelled against somebody who truly comes with the radius of recievola? As in, its ok to diss a bloke if the diss has enough substance to it. E.g: Oi! You BLACK nobber, you. Racist or not? Yes, if the guy at the receiving end is WHITE thus rendering the insult false. If the blokes black aleady, thennit makes no sensse to call his antagonist a racist for just commenting on something about him, brnging out to light a basic statement pertaining to his genet...

Romania was a more helpful ally to Nazi Germany than Italy during WWII.

Atheist-Independent

As I am currently obsessed with the whole World War II time period, I decided that this would be an interesting, not to mention original, debate to create. The premise will be as followed: Romania was a more helpful ally to Nazi Germany during the entirety of World War II than Italy was. I will provide a few definition/clarifications just to be safe.

Physician Assisted Death

noved18
imnotacop

Why is it that only a few states have legalized Physician Assisted Suicide? There are so many good things that can come out of it. All of the pain that a patient is in can end if they want it to, especially if they are going to die anyways. A patient can die with dignity and not have to be remembered as the person who drooled, puked and pooped himself all the time. Instead they can be remembered how they want to remember. Health care costs for the patients can stop being paid and they can leave...

Should the movie "The Interview" have been banned in the first place?

ltbloom
WillRiley

-First this is NOT a debate about N Korea or blackmail by hacking. I agree that both are bad. This is a PURE question of whether the movie should have been banned in the first place. -I say Yes because -Similar to how you can't yell fire in a building, there should be a line set here that should have banned this movie. Not saying they're the same thing, of course, but we do have laws that limit free speech when public safety is at risk. Public safety is at risk here (regardless of how muc...
