I think therefore I exist

"I think therefore I exist." Con's job is to try to refute it. Pro's job is to defend it from the refutes....

You cannot prove your existence

LaughItUpLydia
vi_spex

You have 2 rounds to prove your existence, I will attempt refutations. Sounds fun, right? There aren't many limitations or rules. I'd rather not have 'short' rounds because it would be more interesting with more arguments. The deeper we dig into philosophy the better the debate will be! 3rd rounds will be final rebuttals but Con must only do a feasible conclusion leading to the point where he can easily say "I have proved that I exist". Before we do anything however, here are some intriguing...

Evolutionary Atheists have no moral platform, beyond biological continuation and reproduction

TheJuniorVarsityNovice
Interloped

Thesis paragraph: As an Evolutionary Athiest I run into the predicament mentioned above. I find it hard to locate a platform with which I can bestow ethics or morality upon a given situation. As evolution would have it, the real purpose of life is simply to create as many organisms as possible, specifically it is my purpose in life to create more human beings. Using this logic however, many things which I fi...

One can rationally support the claim that they are the only individual in existence with free will.

TheJuniorVarsityNovice
ZenoCitium

THIS DEBATE IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ACCEPT! In this debate I will assert logically that out of all people who roam the earth, I am the sole individual who has free will; does this mean that I believe I am truely the only one? Well not exactly, but in essence, yes. I will show that because each individual lives in his or her own world, that they are logically restrained to accept certain ideas, especially when they experience a cert...

is homosexuality actually a sin

really12
FreedomEagle

The bible was written long ago when there was not a such a copious amount of scientific research, and as such the people then believed that homosexuality was a choice because there was nothing to prove otherwise. You must know that the holy bible was also written in societal morals, not only religious morals. For example, people back then deemed it permissible to stone a woman who had lost her virginity before marriage....

can you be good without god?

eli845
blacklight

I am new to this so I will try to explain myself to the best of my ability. Also my grammar is not the best so please bare with me. So can you be good without god? I say no you can not. Now before you start to argue back remember we are philosophers on here (that's the impression I got) define your terms what do we mean by good? Can we agree that good is a act that the one that is doing the GOOD act will think that that is the rite thing to do? Now who is to decide what good is then? I say w...

Can we understand death?

TheJuniorVarsityNovice

ForewordThis debate has been done to find a good debating partner to do philosophical discussions with. The topic is one from about a year ago, with I and a now inactive user profjb. Other Philosophy debates on my profile will be used for the next debate, and then I will probably start thinking of new topics.I look forward to finding a smart and mature partner to discuss things with.Debate

What if... ? You pick the question.

Alex_Stowe
ArcDebate918

You get to pick the what if question and we will debate in a CONVERSATIONAL STYLE. You must pick something that wouldn't bore a person to death. No controversial topics. NO SOURCES REQUIRED, THIS IS CONVERSATIONAL! THIS IS NOT A CLASSIC DEBATE!

Mathematical Realism (PRO) vs. Mathematical Anti-Realism (CON)

tahirimanov
Surrealism

I intended this debate to be Realism (more specificly Platonism) vs Nominalism, but later I decided it to be more general, and broad. 1. Rules (1) - No arguments in first round, but Con should give some defintions, and explanations (also can give some examples).(2) - Con doesn't have to argue for whole anti-realism, (s)he can choose a specific form of anti-...
