God exists

PowerPikachu21
queenmary

Con will say whether he wants to show why my arguments don't work, or he could attempt to show the absence of God. Con can give an argument in Round 1. NOTE: Do NOT forfeit. If someone forfeits a debate, the debate will quit updating. If you do forfeit, the other person will automatically 'win'....

Does God exist?

Toviyah
Envisage

Thanks Envisage for accepting this debate. First round for acceptance I'm pro, Envisage will be Con. BOP is on me. 'God' is the Deistic concept of God. (Creator, transcendent, powerful) Enjoy!...

Why have my appendeges superseeded yours?

DATXDUDE
missbailey8

It's obvious that I am above you (DDO travelers) in all respects. The intellectual capacity of your crainial appendages are all DWARFED by mine. This being the case, I have attempted to figure out WHY I was given my powers. This is quintessential to foster my understanding the greater powers. Their abilities are beyond even MY unfathomable grasp....

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. ...

If a Nation denys Reality

Lookingatissues
Briannj17

Not only this nation, America, but the world has turned a blind eye to reality and have decided that if they ignore the problem of a enemy who is attacking them that the enemy will just go away in time and the world will be at peace again. This enemy is like a virulent virus which won't go away if left untreated but will takes down the host nation in which it lives and thrives . This virulent virus lies dormant in the nation body building up a confidence in the nation body that it can in time ad...

Insanity

albertack
Aguilajoyce

Albert Einstein is generally credited with the quote, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." Whether or not it was truly Einstein who said this is irrelevant to the purpose of the debate, for I want to examine the statement on the merit of what it implies, rather than the authority from whence it came. This quote has often been cited to me in a variety of settings--from well-intentioned friends trying to advise me on the best course of action...

Euthanasia should be available to everyone who is considering suicide.

philipisbad
Reformist

My position is that euthanasia should be available to anyone who wishes to kill themselves. I am not stating that everyone will have easy access to euthanasia like they have access to a can of Coke. There must be counselling, talking with the families, and a lot of time to reconsider the decision. This is important because the individual cannot be making this decision because of treatable mental health issue or a sudden whim of emotion. This must be a rational decision based on their convictio...

Do "right or wrong" or "natural or unnatural" make valid points in an argument?

JLWilliams
Aguilajoyce

When debating animal rights or issues of religion, I often come across the argument that hurting animals should be banned because it is "wrong" to do so. Another example is how AI development should be avoided because we are "playing God" or making "unnatural" things. I am saying that these are invalid and groundless arguments because of multiple reasons: 1. Morals are pure fabrication of our thoughts, subjective and changing from person to person, so accepting one set of morals means ignorin...

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...
