Life and the Universe were Created

Iamsmarter
Willows

I find it an inherent truth that life and the universe were created. Of course this is a cyclic argument and thus will not serve as the substance of my reasoning. I will argue that existence is an illusion, merely a combination of sensory inputs and processing of those inputs. However, what is not deniable is the existence of something. I mean something in the most ambiguous sense possible. There is something either "out there" or "in here," i.e. outside of the Universe or within our mind. I...

Superman is an under-appreciated character nowadays

8bitdiedie
Shawn_Hartnell

I hold the position that Superman is a heavily philosophical and meaningful character, as well as an idol for others, and that the character's decline in popularity and criticism is built on a blind misunderstanding of the character. There should be a few things established: 1. This is the DC comic version of the character we are talking about. Not the character's representation in movies/video games etc. 2. This...

Pro will be arguing that all newspapers should be online. Con will be arguing all newspapers should remain offline and be a news "paper". Forfeiting counts as automatic loss. Start arguments in round 1. I will be using my previous debates to bring up my arguments. Good debating!...
