Logic beats Morality

OpenMindedPerson1155
Actions_Speak

Through this, I would like to express my opinion on why morality is an incompetent basis in making everyday decisions. First of; logic means reasoning conducted with strict principles of validity, therefore logic is unbiased. While morality may be ruled by right or wrong, not everybody has the same opinion on what is correct and what is not....

The sword is mightier than the pen.

Danielle
Coveny

"The pen is mightier than the sword" is a proverb indicating that communication (particularly written language), or in some interpretations, administrative power or advocacy of an independent press, is a more effective tool than direct violence and military prowess. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_pen_is_mightier_than_the_sword In the upcoming rounds, I will be arguing that the sword is more effective. I will begin the discussion in Round Two upon my opponent's acceptance....

Mystical Experiences be can be validated

mojodancer
TheGadfly

It is assumed by those who have had a mystical experience, whether induced by years of meditation or by a single dose of LSD or similar drugs, that the truthfulness of the experience is attested to by its sense of "realness". The criticism of skeptics is often met with a statement, "You have to experience it yourself and then you will understand." This means that if one has the actual experience he will be convinced by its intense feeling of reality. "I know it was real because it was more real...

is abortion moral

Roganjoesloan
ConserativeDemocrat

My position on this particular subject is no matter what happened no matter what you are going through even if the baby is going to wreak your short term life you can't bring a baby back from the dead when it's convenient the baby does not deserve to die because its mother got raped or went to that wild party and in the small chance of teen pregnancy I don't think that teens should be pregnant but once they get pregnant they should have to give birth of course with assistance I can not think of...

Do things outside of our senses exist?

Trapeeze
BryanMullinsNOCHRISTMAS2

I argue that things outside of our senses are possibilities, but that it's illogical to say, something, on the basis of being possible, exists. To make a case I will have to use scientific logic, rather than philosophical logic. I refer to a logical, secondary, argument - on the other side of the universe, which I cannot currently sense, exists something. My case is that things outside of our senses are possible, but to argue this philosophical case sensibly, I must use scientific logi...

It is not possible to have objective moral standards without God.

AlexC1999
Telsa

Throughout history many moral systems have existed. Many, but not all, of these systems have been based on the idea of a God. As western society increasingly rejects God and religion, especially in places such as Europe, new moral ideas without emphasis on the existence of a creator have emerged. Many view this as a way to unshackle ourselves from ancient moral systems that often depend on books containing moral advice from cultures with very different standards to our own. However many do not r...

Optimism vs. Pessimism

Danielle
Coveny

Introduction An optimist is a person with a positive outlook on life. A pessimist is a person with a negative outlook on life. Dispositional optimism and pessimism are typically assessed by asking people whether they expect future outcomes to be beneficial or negative. In this debate, I will be arguing that it is overall better to be an optimist than a pessimist.Upon my opponent's acce...
