Should we replace capitalism?

AlexAnCom

Should we replace capitalism? Yes. Here I define capitalism as a system of economic organization with two central principles: 1) Private ownership of property and the means of production (fields, factories, etc).2) The accumulation of skill sets and financial capital (or money) where one dollar equals one vote in the marketplace and one unit of access to resources.Given this definition and considering the current state o...

Infliction of cruelty with a good conscience is delight to moralists. That is why they invented hell

TeddyTed
GMan7112

[T]he infliction of cruelty with a good conscience is a delight to moralists. That is why they invented Hell." This is a quote written by Bertrand Russell. While it is true that due to the advent of hell, crime must have been reduced but Hell, as we currently understand it, is the product of several snowballing misconceptions and irresponsibly translated scriptures. Many Christians believe that the God of the Bible invented or designed Hell.The concept of a torturous, demon-governed "underworld"...

Goku(Pro) vs Hulk (Con)

CyberConor

I'd like to thank CyberConor in advance for accepting this debate. This is essentially a debate about who the victor would be in a battle between Goku and The Incredible Hulk. I am advocating that Goku would defeat the hulk. My opponent shares the bop and must show that the hulk would defeat Goku. We will assume that the two fighters have no outside help and are using their own power in the fight. Definitions: Goku from DBZ, DBGT, and DB. Hulk: Bruce Banner from Marvel No semantics wi...

Free Will and the Bible

anonymouswho
commence

I would like to discuss whether mankind has a free will according to both Scripture and Logic. Any translation of the Bible is acceptable, however I will be using the Authorized KJV and Strong's Concordance when necessary. In order to shorten this introduction, the rules for this discussion are contained in the following verses- 2 Timothy 2:16, 2 Timothy 3:16, Proverbs 30:5, 1 Thessalonians 5:21, 2 Peter 1:20, 1 Peter 3:16, and Titus 1:9 ("Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, t...

Animals should have the right to life and liberty

RoyalFlush100
UNpeacekeeper

First round is acceptance only. Animals will be defined as any species that is part of the Kingdom of Animalia, except homo sapiens. Liberty will be defined as the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one's way of life, behavior, or political views. This debate assumes humans have these rights, but may lose them if they violate another person's. Pro cannot introduce any new arguments in the final round, as Con has no chance to rebut t...
