FieryNyan
ChickenBoy8888

Should Euthanasia be legalized? "the terminally ill are a class of persons who need protection from family, social, and economic pressures, and who are often particularly vulnerable to such pressures because of chronic pain, depression, and the effects of medication." ... from the State of Alaska's arguments that assisted suicide is dangerous (Sampson et al. v State of Alaska, 09/21/2001) Wrong: unjust Right: just Euthanasia: the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurab...

Deepest Quote #4

The-Holy-Macrel

I am bored and it's to slow to only have one Deepest Quote debate going on for me right now, so I figured I'll release Deepest Quote #4 while Deepest Quote #3 is going on right now. This is not a debate that should be taken seriously. It is just a light-hearted competition to see who can come up with the deepest quote, so do not join expecting a fight or a heated argument. This will be my fourth installment of this debate since I really enjoy doing these debates. Guess it my "trademark" now i...

Do "right or wrong" or "natural or unnatural" make valid points in an argument?

JLWilliams
Aguilajoyce

When debating animal rights or issues of religion, I often come across the argument that hurting animals should be banned because it is "wrong" to do so. Another example is how AI development should be avoided because we are "playing God" or making "unnatural" things. I am saying that these are invalid and groundless arguments because of multiple reasons: 1. Morals are pure fabrication of our thoughts, subjective and changing from person to person, so accepting one set of morals means ignorin...

Deepest Quote #3

Normerican

This is not a debate that should be taken seriously. It is just a light-hearted competition to see who can come up with the deepest quote, so do not join expecting a fight or a heated argument. This will be my third installment of this debate since the previous two opponents have either quit early or failed to meet the expectations of the debate (following rules, etc.) What I mean by "deepest quote" is a quote that makes you think or makes you feel a strong emotion to a particular subject. My...

How would an atheist prove the existence of color as an asthetic concept to a blind man?

ViceRegent
Mysery

Do atheists know that their physical senses are the only ones? What would they say to a blind man who said there are only four senses, denying the existence of the sense of sight. He demands evidence from you as to the existence of color as an asthetic concept. What would you say?...

Consequentialism is superior to deontological ethics in determining morality.

pianodude2468

1st round is just acceptance. 2nd round is a constructive case. 3rd round will be our only rebuttal. 4th round will be final statements and voters. No new ideas allowed since there will be no time to respond. Also, consequentialism is defined as looking to the ends of an action to determine its moral worth and deontology is defined as looking at the intent of the action. This is just a fun debate so have fun with it. (:...
