One Plus One: Two?

downwithdooshes
vjb

1 cup of oil+one cup of alcohol=less than 2 cups of liquid. So 1+1 does not equal 2. Also, 42 is the answer to anything in the universe, making 1+1=42. But many argue that since every baby knows it, and that even Betrand Russell "proved" it, it is true. However, not all babies can find that for themselves, and are "force-fed" it by their mothers. Also, Russell's proof later was discovered to be errorous, making it hard to decide if 1+1 does equal 2. If 1+1=2, 2=42 does not equal 2....

Do humans know everything?

Almog
Commondebator

Think about it...and when I say think about it, I mean throw away everything you think you know about what you don't, and think deeply about the argument. It is possible to know everything. By possible to know everything, I mean not in a carnal state, but rather in a general state. When one knows everything in a general state, only thing can someone learn everything in specificity. There are may questions people think are unanswered, but they are in our face. In order to know everything, you hav...

The economy was mans worst invention

Bob_Manbook
Rwicks

The economy allows for people to be discriminated because of their position in the economy. It also allows certain people to have more stuff then other people because of their position in the economy. It creates divides between the poor and the rich. Some people aren't able to get what they need to live because they don't have money. The best thing that could ever happen to this earth is this. We destroy the economy, everybody works and everybody gets what they need once they work. Discriminatio...

The democrats are more racist than the republicans

Flipbook
abstrackedruth

This is my first debate since a long inactivity period following a rage induced set of poor arguments. Rules: There is no status quo, therefore burden of proof is shared. This is about racism, not sexism. If sexism is argued in the place of racism... Then maybe you can get away with it if it's a strong enough argument. I believe that all races are equal and the only true way to not be racist is to not acknowledge that race exists. Con can start first....

Should the Legal Drinking Age Be Returned to 18?

c_koethe17
Kaylor

Underage drinking has been a problem for a long time. Many people believe that raising the age limit is the solution. However, after we changed the legal age limit from 18 to 21 for the first time, the number of underage drinkers increases for the next 20 years. Raising the age is also offensive to those who were once allowed to drink. lastly, raising the age limit makes it even more tempting for under aged adults to drink. Therefore America should return the lega...

Scottish Independence

SNP_02
Atheist-Independent

I strongly believe in Independence for Scotland within the EU. The Yes Campaign fought a great campaign for a better Scotland, but we were fooled by the lies of the Westmonster Establishment. Although after a referendum, the dream is NOT dead. Before the referendum SNP membership was ~20,000. Now, 3 months after, it's almost 100,000. Already Westmonster are backtracking on their promises clearly shown in 'The Vow' in which David Cameron MP, Nick Clegg MP, and Ed Miliband MP all signed. These 3...

William the Conqueror had the right to invade Britain and become King of England

Atheist-Independent
JayConar

This debate will follow the premise that William I (the Conqueror) of England had a legitimate claim on the Kingdom of England and therefore had the right to invade Britain. I will take the pro side of this premise.This debate will follow a generic format with the first round being for acceptance only. I am keeping this debate impossible to accept, however I will likely open this up later on. Good luck!...
