There exists absolute truth.

DrSenelCoolidge
Ockham

I believe that absolute truth exists. Here is what I define as absolute truth: Absolute truth is all absolute, being correct in every context of reality, and it is a truth that depends on its own truthfulness for being valid. As such, this truth is self-reliant for its validity. This truth then proves itself as valid. Also, absolute truth is composed of aspects, each aspect being an essential ingredient for absolute truth. These aspects include syntactic and state-wise components, which...

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...

Should abortion be legal, and if so, is it moral?

Billjunior
DanBe

In this debate, I, the instigator, will be arguing that abortion should be legal (in all counties), and that it is moral to have an abortion. For the purposes of the argument, let's define abortion as "the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy". Good luck to whomever may accept this challenge :) Opening argument- Many people state that abortion is killing an inncoent person. While that is true, it does not entail that therefore abortion isn't moral. The fetus's right to live, does not e...

Morality is an objective truth

Elias_is_the_llama

Alright, so this is my first debate. The first round is simply for acceptance, followed by opening arguments, then rebuttals. It seems it's appropriate to define terms before the debate starts. The following definitions of terms will be used. Morality- principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior Objective- not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased I am taking the pro position for this debate,...

The Argument from Logic

DakotaKrafick

I thank DakotaKrafick for being a willing and eager participant in this debate on God's existence. I will be using a less commonly used argument for God's existence; Con (DakotaKrafick) will be arguing against it. My burden of proof is to show that the argument I propound is sound; Con's burden of proof is to show that it is not.By "logic" I simply mean the laws of logic such as the law of non-contradiction, law of identity, and the law of the excluded middle.<...

#First round is for accepting the debate.# So my opinion is that children should be introduced to philosophy and rhetoric at a younger age so they could better adjust to the mindset and so they would philosophise with greater adequacy and skill....
