Violence does not equal evil

eLkathebaloon

Although violence may be a horrible thing, in of itself it isn't evil. Violence is part of our life, it's also tool for the nature to use in it's evolutionary mechanics (Survival of the fittest). But violence can be found even in daily part of our lives and things that we would consider harmless. Football, Boxing, Wrestling, actually any form of sport has a little bit of violence in it. We can also find violence in art, when it's showed as a form of expression. So, something that is actually nat...

My contention for this proposition is that I feel any attempt to establish an Objective Meaning, a meaning which transcends or holds true to all of those who are members of the species H. sapiens, is not only an illusory prospect but one which has more destructive implications than positive. I require Con to obviously propose a framework for an objective meaning, including specifically a or many meanings, to use the term loosely. 1st Round. Accept and give your argument. 2nd Round. Re...

Homosexuality is okay!

I believe that homosexuality is okay. It may be odd behavior, but that doesn't mean it's bad or immoral. It is their right to have the same rights as "straight" people. It is just IMMORAL for someone to treat them of lesser value because of it! That makes you a bad person. Not treating everybody equally. That is the true evil. The only thing the Bible says, if you are religious, is this: -Homosexual rape and improper treatment of strangers (Genesis 19 & Judges 19:14-29); -Homosexual ritual se...

Humanism is a better ideology then Feminism

A_Flying_Toaster
YaHey

For this first round, I will merely say to my opponent; good day sir or madame. I wish you luck in this debate. I will begin by going over the definition of humanism and feminism. Humanism: An outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems. Feminism: The advocacy of wom...
