LostintheEcho1498

intelligence is proportion to brain size. african americans have smaller brains than whites. they also have lower IQs. IQ tests are debatable, but it's still evidence. to be fair, whites are not as smart as most asians. whites are known to have a wider rage of intelligence, but overall be less intelligent. hence, more genius whites, and more retarded whites....

Whether animals deserve moral treatment.

Prox
AlextheYounga

Con Position: Animals neither have nor deserve rights, or any sort of moral treatment. Specifically, I will be arguing that morality only makes sense with respect to human agents and agents that can/may mimick human intelligence. Animals should only be treated as things or property. My opponent argues that animals should be treated with moral respect. We each will have to posit and defend an ethical philosophy as a framework to consider this issue, along with the issue, itself. Af...

Anyone who could possibly deny this would be crazy. One can simply look at the URL on their address bar and see none other than "debate.org" itself. In fact, you ought to be able to realize it just by looking at your screen or the logo at the very corner of it. If there is anyone out there who disagrees with this, speak now. Enlighten me on how this could even possibly not be so....

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Kalleth

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...

Should trolls be temporarily banned from Debate.org?

Jess.hartley

This debate is reserved for Tough. If anyone else accepts, they lose. I'm for the idea that trolls should be temporarily banned from this site. I will be setting up my own criteria for "temporarily banning" them. Temporary ban for trolling: 5 days. Since "troll" is a slang term, we will be using the Urban Dictionary for terms like this. Troll-"One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument...

What Does God Owe Us?

The universe is like a shaken bottle of water. The water represents timespace, energy the Father, "the substance of things hoped for"- Heb11:1. The air represents probability, energy the Holy Spirit, "the evidence of things not seen"- Heb11:1.The bottle itself represents the limitation of impossibilities. The shaking is the one substance exerting its oneness in one direction stirring closed circuitry, represented by the bubbles, that there be something to move out of the way and fill in behind,...
