People are Generally Selfish

FMA
whatledge

I believe that society is generally selfish in the sense that the majority of the people only look out for their families/loved ones as well as their own best interests/well being. My opponent does not believe this to be true....

Reality is a computer simulation

redlinefever

This debate is over whether or not the world we live in is a computer simulation. As there are many ways to approach this I will set that this "simulation" would be one that each individual person was a part of and in control of their own decisions. The creators of the simulation would not interfere with the simulation, rather observe how people conducted themselves....

Is God inside your heart?

soulkeeper
minervx

Interestingly enough is the fact that God has already placed within our beings that "receiver" that enables us to hear from the "transmitter", from Him. What we can know about God is already manifested inside of us and we could speak here about a multitude of things including our perpetual desire to find that "home", our unique characteristics as humans, the capacity to discern right from wrong, to have a free will, to have feelings etc....

Firstly I would like to thank my opponent for excepting this debate, and thank the genius that came up with this quote, Albert Einstein. "Your common sense is your natural ability to make good judgments and to behave in a practical and sensible way." Google dictionary (1) Prejudice-Having an opinion on some one or something before seeing it. Working with my definitions, which other than minor semantic corrections are to be used throughout the debate. Looking at the definition of common...

"market inefficiency" is an incoherent phrase

Jon_Smith
Korashk

Efficient is a term used to describe a course of action taken to achieve a goal. I don't personally know what the goal of the market is. Considering the market is a term given to a bunch of free individuals pursuing their values, it is unclear that their goals would overlap in a way that a coherent term can even be given to the "aggregate goals of free individuals". So we don't know what the goal of all free individuals is, we don't know all the actions that free individuals take to go about ach...

No_Promises
Nails

It has been years since i've played but i believe it has always been an unfair assumption that World of Warcraft ritualistically produces virgins. ----------Contentions----------- 1) My view on this moot has led me to believe that it is not actually the game that is increasing the number of virgins aged 18-30 but, in fact, it is the people who have the characteristics that would be found in those of of a "post-pubescent virgin" are actually drawn to this type of game. They require an outle...
