God Exists

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. ...

Life is filled with purpose.

Pro will have to provide something that, in the wide view of things... and stuff... timey-wimey... whatnot, has purpose. First round is acceptance. Purpose: meaningful for all of time, never to be considered obsolete or unneeded. An influence that will last until the end of time, defined by whatever world-view you deem appropriate. Thank you, and good luck! Assuming you want to succeed. Which you very well may not. In which case, very poor luck to you!...

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...

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...

Abortion

a_janis1
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...
