Something needs to be done about vote bombs

qopel
royalpaladin

This website can be a lot of fun. Sure things can get heated and that's why there are points that can be lost or awarded based on rudeness. There are people, however (mostly teens) that think they are justified to be vigilantes and administer their own form of point awards with the use of vote bombs. This results in more vote bombs and votes that result trying to counter-act the vote bombs. Ultimately, this results in the entire voting system becoming useless. I would suggest a blocking m...

Weak Atheism is Logically Incoherent

KeytarHero
dirkson

I wish to debate the following proposition, that weak atheism is logically incoherent.Weak atheism is the position that rather than a positive belief that God does not exist, it is the "lack of belief in gods or God."Incoherent is defined as without logical or meaningful connection.

Homosexuality should be accepted by humanity

AndrewB686
Inspired

First Round is Acceptance. Second Round is Arguments. Third Round is Rebuttals. Final Round is Conclusion. I will be arguing in favor of: -Homosexuality is a viable lifestyle. -Homosexuals have the ability to effectively raise an adopted child. -While a minority, Homosexuality is a natural orientation that has merit. -Homophobia is detrimental to any nation that condones such a practice. Homosexual- of, relating to, or characterized by a tendency to direct sexual desire towa...

The Cosmological Argument is Sound

Vulpes_Inculta
TheHitchslap

Ave, ladies and gentlemen. I've decided to challenge TheHitchslap to a debate on the Cosmological Argument. He's obviously a fan of Christopher Hitchens, the late member of the New Atheist movement. I think it will be interesting, then, to see what he has to say about this argument. Perhaps he will fare better than his hero did against William Lane Craig at Biola University.

There exists a moral system that which all humans ought to follow

Stephen_Hawkins
TUF

The debate is as it seems (that is, the topic is how you'd imagine it to be). The topic is as it is read. All definitions are typical (either common usage or context specific). If my opponent has any grievances with the current layout, he should state them. As per the norm, first round for acceptance/definitions....

Everyone should stop using the euphemism "pro-choice" when referring to abortion.

Equivocator
zgb1997

Anyone who uses the euphemism "pro-choice" when she is actually talking about killing a living thing is a coward. Everyone is pro-choice. Whether you decide to allow your unborn child to live, or you decide to kill it, you are making a choice. At least have the courage of your convictions; if you believe that the correct choice is to abort your pregnancy then stop hiding your actions behind a catch phrase. If you believe that having an abortion is the best remedy to stop your pregnancy, have the...

RESOLVED: It is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

INTROTrue love conquers all. This is an expression which most of you are undoubtedly familiar with. But to what extent does such an expression hold merit? For some, love is fleeting. For others, love is f...
