Ajabi

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This debate entitled: This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts are Immoral. This is ROUND 3 of WODC hosted by edeb8 and larztheloser. Now I believe that I should clarify the rules, the order, and some principle definitions which will be referred to throughout the debate. 1. The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no refutations will be allowed in the first argument. 2. The first round is for rules, orders, definiti...

Religion is like extra credit.

I believe that it is like extra credit. If you choose to believe in god and he turns out not to be real. Oh well. You still lived and you didn't really loose anything. If he does end up to be real, then you are welcomed into this thing or way of life that has you so interested in your religion....

God doesn't exist.

Dookieman
Toviyah

First round is for acceptance. Second round is for opening statements. Third round for first rebuttals. Fourth round for second rebuttals and concluding remarks. Pro will argue that God doesn't exist and Con will argue that God does exist. God will be defined as the omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent, eternal creator and sustainer of the universe. Omnipotent means all powerful. Omniscient means all knowing. Omnibenevolent means all loving. Good luck! (:...

Is the environmental movement based on false logic?

themightyindividual
itsmagyk

1. Objective value of anti-environmentalism The modern world's industrial economy allows for more than 7 billion people (and counting) to exist on this planet. Capitalist progress had proven wrong the environmentalists of the late 19th century who claimed that the population would die out after 2 billion people because it is not possible to produce food and shelter for a large amount of people. You live in a house made of wood, with heat from natural gas, you use electricity made from coal, g...

Obviously I would have to provide a video of my screen, but the truth is that Wally Land Pharmacy appears randomly and blinks its message at me repeatedly. That is the truth. Con must defend Wal Mart Pharmaceuticals. Con must not be on Wally World drugs....

Resolved : A Christian God is necessary in order for objective morality to exist.

Mikal
Lupricona

BOP is on Pro. We kind of threw back ideas as to what the resolution should be, but we finally went with this one. Christian God - The Judeo-Christian God (Yaweh, etc) Objective morality - is the idea that a certain system of ethics or set of moral judgments is not just true according to a person's subjective opinion, but factually true Pro shall begin his arguments in round 1 and pass in the final round to even out the rounds. He has the BOP as he is the affirmative in this de...
