A World Without Lies

Surtr
RiskTaker

This debate is about whether a world without lies would either (Pro) morally correct/good or (Con) morally incorrect/evil. I will take the position of con. Good-beneficial to the human race as a general whole. Evil-detrimental to the human race as a general whole. Lie-a deliberate deception engineered to hide or conceal truth, for any reason. Truth-a fact, something that is inherently correct; the manner something clearly is/the way it clearly occurred. In this debate, morality will be...

Loveshismom
Chrysippus

This is barely debatable at all, and I really don't see how we won't have to both forfeit a round at some point....

Do you think forced schooling of teenagers should be allowed?

saiga12boy
CloudKylion

I do not think innocent people willing and able to think for themselves should be forced to go somewhere they don't wish to be. The average American teenager is forced against his/her will to go somewhere they don't want to be and barred from leaving or banned from refusing to comply with their agenda. This is an unconsentual act and should therefore be forbidden from forced compliance. They are forced to go there, take place in whatever activity the controllers (teachers/administrators) have pl...

The meaning of life is that God is good

LifeMeansGodIsGood
RowanM

Life means God is good. All life shows that God is good, and the biggest proclamation of God's goodness shows in his creation of free-willed beings with creative intelligence similar to His own creative intelligence. If life is not God's creation, then life has no true inarguable meaning....

Naturalism Assumes that Humans are Supernatural

andymcstab
Dan4reason

Fun quick debate:I will be arguing that Naturalism assumes that humans are supernatural and is therefore self defeating. "Naturalism is "the idea or belief that only natural (as opposed to supernatural or spiritual) laws and forces operate in the world; (occas.) the idea or belief that nothing exists beyond the natural world." Adherents of naturalism (i.e., naturalists) assert that natural laws are the rules that govern the structure and beha...

This house believes ethical egoism is false

Stephen_Hawkins
YYW

The rules of this debate are rather straight forward:1) There is to be no use of separation of arguments through subheadings or headings, or any technique other than basic essay writing (that is, paragraph-by-paragraph). 2) The definition of ethical egoism is roughly that moral agents value only their self-interest. This definition may be contested, but massive departure from its meaning counts as a forfeit of the debate.3) 4,000 characters, f...
