Morality/Right and Wrong

There is no way to say what is really right or wrong. How do we know if something is truly good or truly bad? Because we can not tell how our actions will effect others or even the world, nothing can be good and nothing can be bad. There are simply actions and consequences and these actions can not be categorized. Many people say "it is bad to kill" but how do we really know that? What if by killing one person you are saving 20, doesn't that make killing good? Some religions believe in a god, or...

Abortion should not be legal in any circumstance. several means of preventative tools have been manufactured. There are even steps that you can take after unplanned conception. The woman has a choice over her body, but to a certain degree. no more than 8 weeks after fertilization, the fetus starts to react to touch. no more than 20 weeks, the fetus develops nerves.the fetus responds to pain. the fetus is being killed because of what an inconvenience parenthood would be for the mother. statistics...

Having English as everyone's first language would overall be beneficial for humans

bubbles_go_pop

Hello everyone. I am in favour of the idea that all humans in all countries having English as their first language would benefit the majority of humans. This means that everyone would be able speak English with the same fluency that citizens born the USA or Britain can. This doesn't necessarily mean all languages have to be wiped out, people could hypothetically still speak them as secondary languages, it means that the official language of society would be English and it would be commonly u...

Homosexual couples can raise children just as well as heterosexual couples.

Danielle
MouthWash

This debate is based on my opponent's assertion that homosexual couples cannot raise children as well as heterosexual couples. He's agreed to debate me on this topic before; however, due to my work schedule I was unable to participate and had to forfeit. Apparently he has a lot of credible sources to back up his point of view. While I don't care about the automatic loss, I'd like the opportunity for my opponent to defend his beliefs. I'm planning on taking Thursday off, so hopefully that plus th...

Same sex marriage.

nerdydork4044

I've avoided this topic for too long, mostly because of my religious background and only I have only recently known a different path, atheism. Burden of proof will be upon Con, my opponent 51%. This is due to the nature of morals, actions are considered moral until proven otherwise. Just as a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Structure Round one Acceptance and definitionsRound two arguments, don...

Should kids (12 and under) have a cell phone?

TheBlackDragon04
Miriam14

Kids should not have a cell phone, because they are traveling into a era that they do not fully understand. They will be immature with it, and not actually use it for any emergencies. Think about it for a second. A maniac/raper is chasing you with a knife. While you are running for your life, do you really have time to call 911. No! Because you are trying to get out of there! Let me give you another situation. You just got into a severe car accident, would you call 911 or home to get help? Well,...
