God Exists

Mathgeekjoe

PrefaceThis has been for a while, and still is, my favorite topic on DDO, ever since my first debate, titled "A Supreme Being Can Rationally Exist". I'm looking forward to some more interesting opposition on this topic, which is my strong suit. Voters must have an Elo score of 2,000 or more to vote, and you must have completed at least 1 debate to accept. If you have not completed a debate yet and still wish to accept, please apply in the comments section. ...

Sincere belief in Leprechauns is equally rational to sincere belief in Gods.

godtraitor
isaacthemaniac

The belief in Leprechauns and the belief in God/s are equally rational. The empirical evidence to support each belief is identically zero. Positive existence claims for both Leprechauns and God/s are not falsifiable. Because these beliefs are identically rational and plausible, it follows that Leprechaun believers are due a higher level of respect and influence in society that believers in God/s currently and historically enjoy or else believers in God/s deserve a higher level of ridicule and in...

Abortion

It's inhumane for someone to kill a living being when it has the potential for life and so much more, especially as the baby has had no chance to experience the joys of life. It is no different to murder....

Immanuel Kant was more important than John Stuart Mill in the development of philosophy

100th debate! This debate should be impossible to accept. Introduction and Clarifications Credit to SocialPinko for the idea. We had a similar debate a while back and I wanted to do one like this again. The terms “important” and “development” will be open for debate. There is no need to agree on the specific definitions but we should apply common sense...

God vs. Naturalism

salam.morcos
tejretics

This debate should be impossible to accept. If you accidentally can accept, your acceptance without permission will lead to an automatic loss. I'm looking for a good debate. The topic of this debate: Is it more likely that God exists (Pro), or that naturalism is true (Con)? The debate doesn't require either side to prove that God or naturalism definitely and necessarily are true or false. The goal of this debate is to show which side's claim is more pro...

Life Philosophy Debate 2

TheRussian
Grovenshar

I am in a bit of a philosophical mood and was hoping to argue something deep and thought-provoking. The two subjects currently on my mind are Free Will (I am Con) and Objective Morality (I am Con). Feel free to accept if you have a contrary opinion on either topic and would like to argue it. If you have another philosophical debate on your mind, feel free to post in the comments and I'll gladly consider something new. In fact, I'd rather debate something new as I think I've made up my mind on th...
