Deontology is not a justified normative ethical system

creedhunt
Aerogant

Hello all. I'm of the opinion that Deontology, the normative ethical system that disregards the moral importance of consequences, is not a justified position. Because I cannot be aware of my opponent's supposed justification until they have presented it, I will allow Con to make a case in the first round....

SarcasticMethod
ThinkingPunk

Round 3 && Round 4 && Round 5 are for rebuttals. I may start a new debate if there is no agreement by then. One may make points with evidence or logical reasoning. Evidence-based points must have sources provided, lest they are trivial. Logical points are to be explained in full detail. Definitions: Solipsism: Th...

This is because reason is the only means by which data input through our senses can be translated i...

Religion(Pro) vs Science(con)

younglaw
Shqiptar

This should be a simple debate and anyone can accept it. First round is acceptance along with your first argument. I would like to say good luck to my opponent before starting!

Religion states that there is a creator named god who loves us all and this lord will give us what we deserve an...
