Surrealism
vi_spex

I have seen many people debate vi_spex on math topics in ways that don't always address the big picture. I will debate any math topic vi_spex wants, most preferrably that any finite number times zero is zero....

Objective Belief

Impartial
AmeenDebateLord

I think belief is subjective. It's an opinion. Only when it is proven does it become knowledge. The two definitions of the word 'belief' in the Oxford English dictionary state that belief is: 1. An acceptance that something exists or is true, especially one without proof. 2. (belief in) Trust, faith, or confidence in (someone or something). The first definition objectifies belief and is surely, in every way, impossible....

I submit that there is no empirical evidence to support the assertion that any god exists. First round is acceptance only, second round is for arguments, third and fourth will be for rebuttal and additional argument with fifth for summary. Any evidence provided must originate in a peer-reviewed study that was NOT done by an organization backed by a religious group of any kind. Definition: Empirical. Obtained by direct or indirect observation, falsifiable, and repeatable....

LR
NRod

1. There is plenty of reason to believe a suspect has information that threatens the lives of the innocent. 2. The individual captured is given the opportunity to comply and give up necessary information. 3. "The threat of torture, and torture in its preliminary stage, simply function as a form of coercion." (548.6.3) 4. Sometimes torture is the only way to get a suspect to talk. 5. Torturing said suspect to get them to talk will result in saving the lives of many innocents. 6. One-off, min...

Torture might be the best possible action in some emergency situation. 3. Morality is principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior. 4. To make torture justifiable, there needs to be a reason like saving lives,there is no other way, and threat to life is imminent. 5. Maximalist torture is...

Philocat
awr700

I know there's been about a million of these debates but I haven't often debated the issue and would like some practice :) First round is for acceptance and for anything you would like to say before the debate. To clarify on what I am arguing, I am arguing that, if the mother's life is not in danger, abortion is morally wrong....
