Morals are determined by external factors

Furyan5
OlaNordmann

We are not born with any moral values. To a newborn there is no right or wrong. Every moral belief we have is the result of things we see and hear we can not alter those beliefs through will alone, although our beliefs can be altered by seeing or hearing something new....

Clothing Style/Amount Should Be Up to The Individual and Not Enforced by Law

ForGrowthOfMind
Samcoder1

To begin I would firstly like to say I am not a nudist nor would I be if clothing was optional in society, so my opinion does not come from a bias towards my own agenda. However, I believe it is oppressive to force clothing laws on citizens. We began as a species that wore clothing only to protect ourselves from the environment and it slowly developed into a means of being stylish. That being said the amount of clothing a person wears is not a matter of morals, only a matter of taste. It is not...

The Vast Majority of Sociology is Useless.

Nivek
Ragnar

After reading a few books on sociology, notably a few religious case studies and a few "New Dads" studies by various graduates, I have come to the conclusion that sociology is a useless field. While this may be premature, I'd still like to test whether this is true or whether I'm just not competent enough to see the value that it provides.

Social Networking is NOT the best way to develop relationships

Jinnie_Shin_Yeon

Twitter,Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and Skype! What do these five have in common? They are social network sites! It is the generation of Internet and these sites are ruling over teenagers and young adults (20 -30), but it does not mean that you can trust Social Media with your relationship?! Imagine this, even in reality (face to face) someone can just turn your love into a game, how would it be if it was in social media? According to U.S Rates and Statistics, the divorce rate has been on th...

Should Smoking Be Illegal?

00110001
Danielle

Smoking should be illegal because 6 million people die from it. That"s one death in ten seconds. Think about it; when will it be your turn? A good counter-argument is, "Those 6 million people chose to kill themselves. Let them do it. It is their right." This can be countered by the fact that those who choose to put their lives in danger might as well just break the law. The "smart" people will just avoid smoking. Also, peer pressure to smoke will not be present anymore, because you can come up w...

In Certain Cases, Censorship is Necessary

Amedexyius
Ubermensch-Tsoa

This debate is not 'Giving Rights Up for Security', it is a branch for the necessity of censorship for national stability. So please, do not start an argument for Rights to Security. Round 1: Opening Arguments Round 2: Rebuttals to Arguments Round 3: Finishing Statements I believe that censorship under specific cases is necessary. A primary argument of mine is that many people of the masses are uneducated and do not have the educational or mental stability in order to process and form...

Steve would beat Mario in a fight, Rules: but first I would like to say we are not including hacks, mods, etc. This debate will be done with vanilla Minecraft and Mario. Also you can use the latest version of Mario. (Not Including Mario Cart). Lastly you can only use Mario's power ups NOT YOSHIE!!! Or any other allies. Refrain from spamming super star. Fairish fight. One reason Steve would win is because he is super strong and can lift a great deal of weight while still running and jumping. H...
