The Universe is Real

Aeon
gryephon

The title may have been slightly misleading: I do not argue the position that the universe doesn't exist, but rather that it is impossible to prove the reality or unreality of everything. The burden of proof is on pro to prove that either everything is real or it is not. This is the structure of the debate: Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Opening statements Round 3: Rebuttals and new points Round 4: Final rebuttals (no new points) Round 5: Conclusion (no new points, just summary)...

Grade Inflation

annacush
scienceNerd48

In some European schools, fewer than 10% of students get A's. Is there grade inflation in the US? Why so many A's for Americans when we are not the #1 adademic nation? Do you think that an "A" has lost value or do students truly deserve every "A" they receive?...

Science proves God's existance

theOmniscient
tkubok

"Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." -Albert Einstein Evolution, the Big Bang, and other theories are clearly disproven by themselves. For anything like these to originate, it would require a power that we humans cannot comprehend. Evolution claims that every creature on the planet evolved from a similar ancestor, but where could it have started? The dirt, perhaps? How could you create life from an inanimate object without a being such as God? The simple an...

The Modal Ontological Argument for God is Logically Sound

Pitbull15
zmikecuber

So, anyway, during a mass PM between me and a bunch of other people, I brought up the MOA (short for Modal Ontological Argument), and zmikecuber responded that despite his recent time crunch, he might consider it and debate its logical validity. BoP is shared on this one. It's up to my opponent to only prove that the argument is logically unsound. First round is for acceptance since I have to present the MOA, the rest of the way, we get to freestyle it. Good luck to zmikecuber if he accept...

Gay Marriage

mfullmer24
Debatedude121

Gay people should have the right to love and marry whoever they want. Even though gay people are not the "norm" it doesn't mean they aren't human beings. Human beings were created equal. And technically they were born from straight parents. So maybe straight people should stop hating on people who are gay they should hate on straight people for creating gay babies. Sexulity isn't a choice. Did you ever wake up and decide " oh im going to be straight from now on" ? I bet you haven't. You just alw...

If not in a liquidity trap, monetary policy is more effective than fiscal policy.

A.K
BobTurner

Definitions: A "liquidity trap" is when interest rates cannot be lowered enough to make a significant change in the economy. (In other words, the zero-bound problem). "Monetary policy" is the use of open market operations (buying and selling securities) by a central bank to influence interest rates. "Fiscal policy" is the use of deficit spending to stimulate the economy. Alterations to these definitions may be considered. First round: state that you accept the debate. Actual debate will...
