Should the death penalty be authorized for murders, rapists, etc regardless of mental conditions

Nate_Weis

Yes their are people in the world who exit that are sexually assaulting people, and or murdering with out a care in the world, and they deserve death, but if that person is a mentally impaired person who can change, shouldn't they be allowed the chance to change and be fixed. Many have gone through a mentally traumatizing moment, or are mentally impaired and do not fully know what they are doing, and can not fully control their actions, and even not fully understand what their actions are to beg...

Morality is subjective

WampumDP
Jerry947

I would like to debate on one of my favorite subjects: The subjectivity of morality. Just to explain beforehand: When I say "morality is subjective" I mean that what one finds good or bad entirely depends on what that individual believes. The first round is merely for confirmation. Second round for opening statements Third for rebuttals and Fourth for closing statements....

Can The Bible and Evolution Both Be True? Why or why not?

Ask_The_Manatee
vegard95

I think that they both can be true. I believe that the bible is a metaphor.(Ex. the apple is sin) So lets think A theory is a theory; has any theory been truly correct? So is marginally correct correct? I think that certain aspects of "On Origin of Speices" are true and some are false. I think that god created us all, and got the ball rolling, and let evolution occur. He also guided the process along, and intervened especially with humans. I think he loves us all, and therefore gave us free wi...

Religon

DanielSaltine
ThesnamisSorreall

I believe that there is no logical argument that you can make to justify truly believing in any specific religion. Or for that matter to accept one religion over all others. The existence of God may have some pretty good arguments, but even then its hard to determine if there even is one....

Life is pointless.

BeardBoulevard
RowanM

Life means something to you until you die, and, depending on what you leave behind, maybe to beings in the future. But eventually, you will die, they will die, our planet will die, our species will die. And you were here for nothing. So make of life what you will, because it doesn't matter anyway....

Should eugenics be used to improve the human race?

corporealbeing
RedAnarchist

I believe eugenics is a viable option for improving the overall quality or life for all humans. Eugenics (also called scientific selection, or artificial selection) has a bad reputation, obviously because it was a tactic used by the Nazis to create a master Aryan race. I am here to defend it. By participating in this debate, you are hereby accepting the following: - Eugenics is defined as: the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding to increase the occurrence of desi...

God exists.

Ockham
harrytruman

The resolution is that God exists. In my first post, I will discuss some issues relating to definitions and then defend the burden of proof principle.Part 1: DefinitionsThe resolution has two terms, "God" and "exists."My opponent has the privilege of defining the term "God," since he is the one defending the claim that God exists. However, my opponent must not attempt to win the debate by appealing to a radically unorthodox definition. Fo...
