We Are All One

I am under the impression that we are all one entity but split into different minds/bodies. I'd like to hear another side of the story....

Euthanasia

I personally believe that euthanasia is a perfectly normal yet heartbreaking method to "let go" of a loved one when they are diagnosed with a disease/state where they are in a "vegetable" stage. Good luck to the opponent....

You can't jump in the same river twice

Hi, I think you can't jump in the same river twice even though it is common sense you can but common sense is wrong sometimes such when it was common sense that the world was flat, but now we know it is round. Now suppose you jump in the river Thames, you get back out and you jumped right back in. You wouldn't have jumped in the same river because right after you jumped in the fish moved a bit, the rocks did too so did the water. So when you jumped in the second time the river isn't the same, i...

Violence is not an effective method to ensure peace.

Throughout history, people have relied on wars and violence in order to resolve issues, whether it be for profit or satisfaction in other ways. As of now, it is culturally acceptable, in certain circumstances to use violence in order to resolve issues for a supposed peaceful endpoint that "justifies the means". My argument is that violence only perpetuates more violence, and in order to mitigate it, we must create new alternatives and change our ideology that has been ingrained through social co...

I challenge you to present a single, sound argument for God's existence. Burden of Proof is solely on my opponent. Voters will judge whether or not the argument has proven itself to be sound or not, and if it's unclear by the end, then they are to judge the result based on simply who presented a better case. Any questions will be answered in the comments, any definitions can be clarified in comments before jumping into the debate. Please feel free to present your argument in the first round s...

I'd like to argue that there is nothing "special", nothing inherently unique about life and living organisms. It's just a highly complex system of interacting matter. My opponent will be arguing that there is something special about life that makes it inherently different from the environment around it. I'll probably go as far as arguing that the concept of "life" is flawed and pointless. Any questions or definitions will be discussed in comments. I'm sorry if the question/issue doesn't ma...

Should the government have laws affecting morality?

John_Moses_Browning
snips123456

Ground rules: 1) be respectful, I both expect to give and receive it, 2) for any statistics, give a link to a non biased source, 3) try to be objective of the situation, this is about politics as a whole, not for a small town, and 4) please do not invoke religion to prove your point, though I encourage you to use it as a reference point. I am exited to see your opening argument....
