The Argument from Logic

popculturepooka
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.<...

Mr.Infidel
socialpinko

I affirm that if Pinocchio said, "My nose will now grow" his nose will more than likely grow. Pinocchio is a fictional character with a nose that will grow every time he lies. Consider the premise: If Pinocchio lies, then his nose will grow. Pinocchio lies. Therefore, his nose will grow. If Pinocchio tells the truth, then his nose will

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...

Darwin's Theory of Changing Species

AlaynaSchippert
sapere_aude

The more I think about it the more illogical I think it is. All of Darwin's theories focus on the changing of species. So I say "Where is the evidence?" I would like to take on a very educated person on this subject, but who can be very down to earth so other people can understand this debate. I am taking the side of creationism....

Abortion

angeloivy

Abortion is the killing of an innocent human being, the right to life is an inalienable right given to every innocent human being, therefore, abortion, as the direct result of the killing of an innocent human child, violates the inalienable right to life. Thus, abortion is wrong. I would like to argue against abortion. There is no layout other than that my opponent should first provide a retort to the paragraph stated above in round one. This is just a free discussion in a relaxed manner. Als...
