Are Latin Curses Real?

WilliamGaspar54
SkyLeach

I propose that Latin curses are very much real. There's substantial evidence that proves this, all throughout history, curses are mentioned. They are dismissed as "coincidence" or "bad luck", but they are real...

can racial discrimination be ok?

0cards0
DebaterGood

there is a new ride sharing app for women that dont feel comfortable with male drivers, i think its ok, but if we switch it with race then it doesnt sound ok, from a business point of view it is valid to discriminate based on job qualifications, so if the app is for women & if they dont feel comfortable with male drivers then its a valid justification to not hire man, but if white people would feel uncomfortable with black drivers based on the claim that most offenders of inter-racial crimes bet...

Can we know anything for certain?

JoaquinBarzi
vi_spex

We use logic to deductively determine the truth value or soundness of arguments. But even logic rests on axiomatic principles suchs as the identity and non-contradiction principle. If we were to ever doubt of them, what else could we use to determine their veracity? Would we be left with utter uncertainty? Of course i am not sold on the con argument, i am just defending it for the sake of debate, if there is any point in debating at all. I am new to this site, so if anyone wants to join th...

God Debate Switch-a-roo 2

The-Holy-Macrel
PepePopo2012

Con-- Me, I am christian and will argue that god DOESN'T exist. Pro-- You, you must be atheist and will argue that god DOES exist. The purpose is that after I calmed my christian bloodlust against atheism in my first month here i got bored of the god debates that take up about one-fifth to one-seventh of our beloved site. So i want to spice it up a bit. And the christian god as described in the bible (for standard lets use the KJV) is the god we are arguing about existing. I have a...

The-Holy-Macrel

Full Premise:The Kalam Cosmological Argument is sound. "Sound" is defined as "a logically correct argument that withstands all scrutiny."

Moral codes from God are subjective.

godtraitor
Burls

I will be arguing the Pro position in this debate. Any moral code claimed to be given from God is entirely subjective, prone to be erroneous and, therefore, should be considered unreliable as a moral standard. Round 1 - Acceptance. Rounds 2 and 3 - Arguments and rebuttals. Round 4 - Final rebuttal/closing argument. Best of Luck!...

God exists.

Vapeo
finn.b14

In this debate I will be arguing that God exists. Specifically of the Christian variety. First round is definitions and acceptance. Objective- intent upon or dealing with things external to the mind rather than with thoughts or feelings Morality- principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior Evil- profoundly immoral and malevolent God- (in Christianity and other monotheistic religions) the creator and ruler of the universe and source of al...

Visigoths should not be considered Hispanic

Adam2isback
randomman22

Those people have always in the history of racism in America been considered white. The first documented case of racism against Hispanics, was against man named Longoria, not a Gomez, a Sanchez. Visigoths are Germanics, from the Germanic tribe named the Visigoths who conquered Spain in the Middle Ages. Not Spanish.First of all, those people typically act white, cause they are white. They don't say "bro" the way a Rivera (which I am partially) or Santiago will. They act white, th...
