There is no objective basis for morality.

AGluttonousAscetic
Mike_10-4

I am posting a debate on this subject again because this is a subject that I am interested in and I am seeking thoughts and ideas on it. The last debates are here: http://www.debate.org/debates/There-is-no-objective-basis-for-morality./1/ http://www.debate.org/debates/There-is-no-objective-basis-for-morality./2/ My position is that an objective basis for morality has not been shown to exist; that judging or labeling an action as either moral or immoral is the result of individual belief,...

using the SCOTUS logic, a marriage with multiple people should be allowed everywhere

dairygirl4u2c
TheConman

only people who are for gay marriage should take this. they say gays should be allowed to marry, cause others are allowed to marry. equal protection and liberty clause of the constitution. if we allow that, why shoujldn't it be allowed for a marriage with multiple people? after all, humans according to their body types are polygamous, with a bend towards limited partners, granted. this would be the most natural state of marriage, even moreso between on woman and one man, and obviusly more n...

Taking into account their consoles and time periods, Gen. II was the best Pokemon generation.

Vox_Veritas

The title section apparently has a limited amount of characters, so here's an explanation of the resolution: We look at the features and capacity each console on which a main Pokemon game was originally released had, as well as other games released for the consoles in question, and we determine which Pokemon generation was the best for its time. For an extreme example, a video game in color and 32-bit released in 1969 would be WAY more impressive for its time than a normal CoD (Call of Duty)...

Can certain types of music be blamed for violent behavior?

AzraelVenom
WAM

Does the music you listen to shape the person you become? Can certain music be blamed for violent or extreme behavior? While it cannot be denied that music incites certain emotions and can alter ones mood, I strongly disagree with those who believe music can be blamed for tragedies such as school shootings and cult sacrifices, or that it plays a part in substance abuse issues. For a person to actually take the themes and content of music literally, for them to be consumed by it, to the point tha...

thatawesome
notsobrightphilosopher

Now I know all kids are thinking yes but adults no that's ridiculous but if us kids were paid for going to school then we would be able to buy supplies for school (books,pens,pencils,notebooks ect.) and some kids would be able to live in a nicer home or buy things that they want but can't have like a skateboard or something like that who ever is con is probably right we shouldn't due to loss of trees and then having to have money given to every kid in the world. But if we all did we would be abl...

Animal Rights should be introduced

Moical_Mc

Ok, hold on for a second. The people who vote no clearly have no insight into what happens to these animals, so let me give some detail. For example Fois Gras a style of duck is often done by force feeding the duck their entire life. Watch a video, then come back and vote because anyone who does this will without a doubt vote for animal rights. But if there is some, odd human being who votes no, then I ask you to look at a video produced by PETA. They show the true monstrosity of animal abuse an...
