The Central Problem with the World Has Always Been, that People Know Too Much

DarthVitiosus

I have come to the understanding and truth that the problem with the world today and always has been is that people know too much. People often state people know too little. I disagree emphatically and I am fully intent on alleviating the world of the burden of the so called "geniuses" of this world. For far too long, they have raptured the planet with their "knowledge." They must be stopped. But in order to be stopped people must submit to the truth and the very resolution of this debate, "The...

Quickfire Debate: Justice, Retribution, and Forgiveness

It's designed to test the alacrity of your wit and your ability to present cogent arguments under a time crunch.This debate is impo...

Utilitarianism is an unsound ethical system

UchihaMadara
Raisor

1. First round for acceptance 2. No new arguments in Round 4 3. The debate should be impossible to accept. Finding a way to accept without permission will result in an automatic loss for Con. If you would like to accept, please say so in the comments section, and I will challenge you in a few days. 4. By accepting the debate, Con agrees to use the following definitions: Utilitarianism- the doctrine that "the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people" should be the guiding...

Rematch Debate: God Exists

tejretics
Philocat

This is a rematch debate of ours, between Philocat and I. Please accept this debate. If you wish to debate something else, you can tell me, but I feel this debate shall be a great learning experience for both of us.
