Astrology is Untrue

illluminations

I am proposing astrology is untrue. By untrue I mean it cannot make accurate predictions about the future by which a mystical, ancient, or supernatural phenomena allows it to do so....

Is God better for humanity?

Jnaejnae
Beginner

This will not be a debate on whether god exists or not. It is whether it effects us and our future for the better or worse. To clarify I am talking about Christianity, Islam, and, Judaism as the main "god". I would like a nice and mature discussion. I personally am kinda on both sides but I went with con, so I am defiantly not completely one sided. I am an atheist and I think it isn't right for someone to lie to themselves to make themselves happy and to go against modern science and progres...

Ajabi
9spaceking

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This debate entitled: This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts are Immoral. This is ROUND 3 of WODC hosted by edeb8 and larztheloser. Now I believe that I should clarify the rules, the order, and some principle definitions which will be referred to throughout the debate. 1. The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no refutations will be allowed in the first argument. 2. The first round is for rules, orders, definiti...

Religion is like extra credit.

Penguin44
SnowyOxygen

I believe that it is like extra credit. If you choose to believe in god and he turns out not to be real. Oh well. You still lived and you didn't really loose anything. If he does end up to be real, then you are welcomed into this thing or way of life that has you so interested in your religion....

Free will doesn't exist

inaudita
RainbowDash52

Free Will-the power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate; the ability to act at one's own discretion The debate is rather self-explanitory. As pro, I shall argue against the existence of free will. Con shall debate for its existence. Round 1 is to be acceptance and declaration of definitions. Any round forfeits will result in the forfeit of the entire debate unless the other individual pardons the other in a later round....

God doesn't exist.

Dookieman
Toviyah

First round is for acceptance. Second round is for opening statements. Third round for first rebuttals. Fourth round for second rebuttals and concluding remarks. Pro will argue that God doesn't exist and Con will argue that God does exist. God will be defined as the omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent, eternal creator and sustainer of the universe. Omnipotent means all powerful. Omniscient means all knowing. Omnibenevolent means all loving. Good luck! (:...

Abortion Is Prima Facie Morally Wrong

Freeman
JoshBrahm

Allow me to begin by saying how pleased I am to be debating Josh Brahm. I'm sure that many of you will never get to read a more powerful case for the pro-life position than the case you will read in the course of this debate. And I only hope that I can do as well while I proceed to defend the pro-choice position. In this debate I'm going to argue that abortion is not morally reprehensible and should not be illegal, given the actual qualities that a human fetus possesses. Unlike a person, a f...
