Are technological advancement doing more harm than good, and causing society to move backwards

Sanaa
Jingle_Bombs

Tenological advancements have triggered many positive progressions in today's society. From the developments of many vaccines and suplements in health care, to the prevention and solving of crimes through DNA testing, security cameras and much more. Without these technological advancements we wouldn't be able to live in this civilized democratic society....

It is more rational to believe the Easter Bunny exists than the god of the Jews/Christians/Muslims

NoMagic
1Credo

The intent is to argue only about the beings themselves. The theology or assorted beliefs that go along with the beings is unimportant. The debate is intended to focus on the beings themselves and argue which being is it more reasonable to believe in....

We Cannot Create Artificial Intelligence via Computation Alone

n7
Philosophybro

I am challenging Philosophybro to this debate. I hope it will go well. Definitions: Artificial Intelligence (as defined by Searle): The claim that an "appropriately programmed computer with the right inputs and outputs would thereby have a mind in exactly the same sense human beings have minds." Computation: "process following a well-defined model understood and expressed as, for example, an algorithm, or a protocol." or to use Turing's definition of what a Turing machine does " Print "0...

Jeans should be considered business casual

lolpas
mdc32

Jeans are not comfortable to wear, at all. Unless you purposefully torture yourself several days in a row with the same pair in order to stretch out the elastic just enough that at least you can breathe while sitting, it's no fun at all. Even then, put them through a wash cycle once, and you have to start anew. Now on the basis that casual is roughly defined as relaxed and unconcerned, jeans cannot fall under that definition. Now if jeans cannot be simple casual, it remains the question of wh...

The Dallas Cowboys and the Denver Broncos are the best teams in the NFL

crushboy79
stwadsworth27

The Cowboys are the top team in the NFL. They won the Seahawks, and the Denver Broncos follow close behind. Peyton Manning just broke the record in the NFL for the most touchdowns, and Demarco Murray is setting records as the Cowboys running back. First round acceptance only, NO trolling, may the best man win...

Do you recognize the independence of East Ukraine?

Kylar
ia3333449

Greetings everyone, I am wanting to debate a very touchy subject these days. The East half of the Republic of Ukraine has been a de facto nation since May 11th 2014 or so. It's been called The Federal State of New Russia, and it waves a flag that strikingly resembles the historical CSA flag. It is a confederation of 2 de facto states: The Dontesk People's Republic waves a blue, black, red and silver flag engraved with Russian wording. It's companion in this de facto and largely unrecognized conf...
