God Loves you


God loves you. God is love. If you are against God, His wrath is building against you, but He does not want to pour His wrath out on you because He loves you. If you will insist on standing against God, you will leave Him no choice because He will not concede His right to rule over you to you and allow you the right to rule yourself and do whatever you feel like doing putting yourself on a pedestal in denial of His right to rule over you. If He did not love you, you would not be here. As long as...

Freedom of the Press ought to be valued over National Security


No government ought to be without censors; and where press is free, none ever will. -Thomas Jefferson It is because I agree with Thomas Jefferson that I must negate the resolution resolved: That national security ought to be valued above freedom of the press. Now to define some key terms. Definitions: National Security- The responsibility of the government to protect the lives of its citizens from threats, both foreign and domestic. Freedom of the press-The right, guaranteed by the First...

There is no unchanging, separate self.


First round for acceptance only. The feeling of being an individual separate from ones environment is inevitably found to be illusory. There is no core to being, no "observer" or "soul" that continues from life to life, or even, from moment to moment. All things are subject to change, and there is no unchanging substrate to this change. Indeed, "essence" is an illusory notion....

People should not post debates about random and insignificant topics


RULES: Con must prove that it is good for people to post debates about random and insignificant topics. This has been one of the main pet peeves of mine since joining DDO. It is utterly annoying that people have to scroll past a plethora of insignificant topics to find one of actual importance in the world. It seems to me that people post these types of debates so that their record will show that they have completed a higher number of debates. This hurts DDO because most people will eventuall...

The Problem of Evil Does Not Disprove God


Resolution: The evidential problem of evil does not disprove the concept of an all-loving, all-powerful, and all-knowing God. Shared burden of proof. Make your thesis and support it with well-crafted arguments. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Thesis and supporting arguments. Round 3: Rebuttals. Round 4: Rebuttals and closing arguments. I'm looking for an ardent atheist that justifies their atheism because of this problem. I'm looking for an intellectual debate with long and thought...

Quality should be valued over sanctity of life


The sanctity of life should be valued over the quality of life. Every single life has a chance to flourish and become great, no matter what the situation the life is placed in. Every one of those lives deserve a chance to change the world or make the world a better place than the state of the world when they were born with. By killing unborn babies, the elderly, the handicapped, and the useless, we are killing potentially great people. We are murdering possible leaders and great minds of the Ear...
