"There is Only One Race, The Human Race" Is an Incorrect Statement

Hetaera
RyuuKyuzo

There is only one living RACE: Homo Sapien Sapien AND NO, I am not just repeating myself for giggles. The specific type of human YOU are today falls within that category, ALL OTHER RACES of humans are EXTINCT. Any reference to hair colour, eye colour, SKIN colour, is merely a reference to PHENOTYPE (http://dictionary.reference.com...) which is in reference to observable traits not to be confused entirely with GENOTYPE; however there is in fact a relationship between the two. To understand...

Should the government help people on poverty?

Debater04
Wylted

There's a homeless person and you feel like helping them. Has this ever happened to you? The government should help them because they don't have what we have.On one night in January 2013 387,845 people were homeless which is 64% of all homeless people. 1 in 10 individuals were between the ages 18 and 24. On one night in January 2013 there were 200,000 homeless children which is 1/3 of all homeless people. 50% homeless people are African-American, 35% White, 12% Hispanic, 2% Native American, 1% A...

Tier Tournament 2 [Top], R2: Let Anyone Work Anywhere

whiteflame
phantom

Thank you to phantom for accepting this debate! It's an honor to get this opportunity, as phantom is one of the first debaters on this site whose arguments really stood out to me, specifically in the previous Tier Tournament. I hope and believe that this debate should provide a solid challenge to us both. The topic as it stands, "Let anyone work anywhere," is something I feel the need to clarify. First, I'd like to expand the topic to its full length. Full topic: There should be no law in...

Free Will Solutions to the Problem of Evil Fail

fa07
Steffan

My position in this argument is that free will theodicies fail. In other words, that an attempt to resolve the problem of evil upon the basis of the freedom of agents does not succeed as an argument. This includes both the logical problem of evil (i.e. whether evil is logically inconsistent with the existence of an all-good God), and the evidential problem of evil (i.e. whether the existence of evil makes the existence of God less probable than not). In other words, the individual on the con...

Liberal Empiricism Is Vulnerable to Conservative Perpetual Abuse

Daktoria
Max.Wallace

To be clear, this is a positive, not normative debate. It merely describes what is, not what ought to be. Liberals might encounter anti-intellectual conservative bullies who play dumb in not understanding what liberals are talking about, especially when it's merely a creative idea that hasn't been concretely proven yet. In turn, when liberals aim to concretely prove their ideas, anti-intellectual conservative bullies physically assault them or socially duress them in order to prevent them fro...
