There are universal, objective moral values

Edril
Mike_10-4

Consensus human opinion (which doesn't exist yet) defines our morality. There is no such thing as objective morality; only self-serving and self created "human rights" which only exist as long as we have the power to enforce them. Can you convince me that I should value the well being of others? If I had the power to set every living thing and resource on the planet in such a way that it all serves as a support structure for my own happiness, how can you say that it would be objectively wrong fo...

Is Nintendo really for kids?

SavageSalamence
SakuraBlossom950

No, I definitely do not believe Nintendo is for children. Nintendo is a family system, it's meant to be enjoyed by every person in the household, everyone wants to play it. If I instead bought a Sega Saturn or an Xbox into the room, I don't think many people would move towards it. Now I attend high school. And I've heard people in my class being trolls by saying "I played Mario when I was five, it was easy, it only had three buttons" and saying that it was boring. Let me tell you, have you play...

Are we slaves to the subliminal?

Ossan004
Ash_RationalTheist

As my first debate on this website I would like to argue something that for me seems very obvious. The fact that we on a daily basis get pummeled with ads and subliminal messaging is obvious, but what are the real implications of this? How deeply does the constant stream of external information affect us and can anyone deny that the human race is slowly loosing parts of its individuality? Since English is not my first language and this is my first debate i figured I would pick an easy one, I...

Does good and evil exist?/Examining scenarios to prove statement

Kai_Piranha
FMAlchemist

This is my first debate, and I decided to start with the topic of whether good and evil exist, using a certain scenario as a jumping point. I am arguing that good and evil do exist. The scenario that I would like to present is the following: If I was talking to someone about something trivial and then suddenly took a gun and shot the person in the head because I felt like it (and for no other reason; the conversation had nothing to do with it), this would be considered evil because I woul...

Problem of evil is a flawed argument

Truth_seeker
Surrealism

This will take place within the confines of the Christian God. I argue that the problem of evil is a flawed argument to disprove God's existence and that he is an evil being. I will only use the Bible to logically deduce his nature not as bias. First round acceptance...

Christian rap battle: Truth_seeker vs. JasperFrancisShickadance

Truth_seeker
JasperFrancisShickadance

You said you wanted to do a rap excluding negativity I'm about to rap as deep as the complexity of relativity We're about to move around our emotions like gravity I'm specializing in good and evil through divine eyes of the realities we got as a premise I'm speakin' of the love, benevolence, n' goodness from God to save us from demise Do not answer a fool according to his own folly or you'll be just like him Do not even mimic his ways or his life, you'll only be bound to live in si...
