Logic Game

Chrysippus
Charlie_Danger

Random logic game Overview: Each player posts four arguments, on any (clean) topic he chooses, and on as many (clean) topics as he chooses; they can be syllogisms, paragraphs, sentences, or symbols; they can be written, in a video linked (with the intended argument pointed out in the post), in a picture or graph linked, or in a news article linked, as long as it does not require a subscription to read the article. At least one of the arguments each round needs to be subtly fallacious. This...

What is more important humanity as a whole, or parts of humanity (individuals)

THEBOMB
mb852

I believe that the whole is more important than the parts. Without the whole there can be no parts. For example, two 1s make a 2 but without a 2 there are no 1s. The whole has to be preserved over parts. This ensures the human race will survive....

Why do Americans try to be like Europe in education when it's the first thing they cut from budgets

Mark9570
princetongurl

As this is my first argument on DDO, I would plead that my opponent doesn't bear down hard on me, and I apologise for any spelling, format errors that occur due to me using my IPod Touch as my medium. So to begin this debate, (Though I take the stand as Pro, in this debate, the positions are arbitrary, as this is intended to be more of an informative discussion than a debate between two well defined sides.) I just don't understand why America tries to compete with us Europeans in education ye...

Man Can't Know Theistic Truths

AnthraSight
Dubloon

My first debate will be a quick one since it's more of a question. My only argument is this, 1) If God is all knowing, then only he can know of himself 2) Mankind are not all knowing 3) Therefore, Man can't know theistic truths Support for 1: In order to know anything about a being which knows all, we must be within that very same epistemic position, but if no other being shares such a position with God, then ultimately God is unknowable. Support for 2: Humans stand in very l...

Round 1 is for acceptance. New arguments can be introduced in rounds 2 and 3. Round 4 is reserved for rebuttals, extension of arguments and a final wrapping up. Round 5 is for reply. Sources do not have to be cited for this debate. I would like to thank my opponent in advance and look forward to a engaging, civilized debate....

the catholic church has never contradicted itself, from an official capacity

dairygirl4u2c
Volk23

n this debate, i am not counting the issues of limbo, or "no salvation outside the catholic church". you would think if the catholic church were not true, that it would have contradicted itself at some point in two thousand years. the only things that count are statements that are authoritative, things that could be considerted "infallible". the pope, intentionally, teaches, the church, on faith and morals. that is the criteria. it includes many councils and other statements by popes....
