We all deserve to die, none of us deserve another breathe of air

LifeMeansGodIsGood
zmikecuber

If we deserve to live or even to breathe one more breath of air, why don't we live and breathe forverer? Since we don't live and breathe forever, we have to conclude either that we deserve to die or that death is not fair. If we say death is fair because it applies to everybody, then it must be fair if we do not get another breath of air and we really don't deserve another breath of air because death is fair. If we say death is unfair and we deserve to live forever, we must be fooling ourselves....

KRFournier

RulesMy opponent will present any one version of the Ontological Argument and try to prove the existence of God. If he/she succeeds then he/she wins the debate. If I sufficiently undermine the argument to the point where my opponent has not established God's existence with the version of the argument chosen, then I win the debate.

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...
