Importance of Memory

voltron116
TheSymbiote

Memories are very important to the community. If people do not have memories, they can't use that memory to make more choices to lead their life in the way that they want it to go. It is very simple, that memory is very important....

It's morally permissible to kill domestic abusers

Zaradi
Vox_Veritas

Resolved: It is morally permissible for victims to use deadly force as a deliberate response to repeated domestic violence. Since the last one I did (sadly) ended in forfeits, I decided to give it another go. This is an old LD topic. This debate will be done as such. All types if LD cases are acceptable. Round structure will be as such: Round One: AFF PRESENTS CASE, THIS ROUND IS NOT JUST FOR ACCEPTANCE. Round Two: Neg case/rebuttals, Aff rebuttals Round Three: N...

Freedom of the Press ought to be valued over National Security

SpiffyTexan
Daltonian

No government ought to be without censors; and where press is free, none ever will. -Thomas Jefferson It is because I agree with Thomas Jefferson that I must negate the resolution resolved: That national security ought to be valued above freedom of the press.

Freedom of the press-The right, guaranteed by the First...

The Death Penalty--With a Twist!

bsh1
kbub

PrefaceI thank Kbub for agreeing to debate me on this! I think it is an interesting take on the Death Penalty debate, in that it seeks to evaluate the philosophy behind it, rather than becoming muddled in the practical concerns of its implementation. I would ask, however, that all arguments be topical to the resolution, and that we stick to the issue at hand (i.e. no Kritiks, theory, etc.). I ask this only because I am genuinely interested in debatin...

Abortion is Morally okay

kip.mock
Commondebator

To my opponent: Please keep this respectful and calm. I don't want to offend anyone, my goal is to understand your position more thoroughly...that said, let's go. My position on abortion is that it is morally wrong. I'd like to start by addressing a few common arguments made by pro-choicers. 1. We're pro-choice, not pro-death. Basically, we're in favor of everyone deciding for themselves rather than there being a strict definition of what you can and can't do. a) I'm not saying you ha...

God Can Gain Knowledge While Being Omniscient

Rational_Thinker9119
zmikecuber

The burden of proof will be shared. I will be arguing that there is no explicit contradiction in God gaining knowledge while still being omniscient by definition, like some may think. My opponent will argue it is a contradiction for God to gain knowledge if he is omniscient, because if God knows all there is to know already, then he cannot know more. God For...
