MakeDebatingGreatAgain
TheUnexaminedLife

I will be arguing that subjective morality should be preferred to objective morality, for reasons to be discussed in my arguments. My opponent will argue for moral objectivity/moral realism.

Miles_Donahue
Moelogy

After a long sabbatical, I'd like to return to Debate.org, and this time by arguing against the kalam cosmological argument. I'll argue that Pro cannot show that the premises of the argument are true, and that's about it.

Pro will begin their argument in this opening round, and then not post a response in round four....

Before I give my evidence for such things, let me clear up a misconception readers of this debate will probably formulate, which is:...

SuperTrooper44
Jonbonbon

Not all conspiracies are true and not all conspiracies are false. Here, let me show you examples, SJM.

Some Conspiracies Are False: For Example, During The War on Terror, Some Americans had the conspiracy that Georg...
