EndarkenedRationalist

This isn’t from the exercise book and because I’m not sure exactly what I have in mind here is the prompt: Write a piece that is 10,000 characters or less (I put the settings at the highest allowable) about something that is dysto...

any cause is caused by another cause

a cause that didn't cause anything, isn't a cause, therefore a first cause would be caused by a cause that isn't a cause, but any cause is caused by another cause, so a first cause is impossible...

Pre-emption vs. Deterrence (Modern Warfare)

Jingle_Bombs
DarthVitiosus

Military debate. I argue to my opponent that as a general rule for diplomacy, foreign relations, and national security policies that the use of Force should NOT be used only as a last resort. I argue exclusively that a doctrine of Pre-emption (including preemptive and preventative war) is far more effective at dismantling information age threats and safeguarding the interests of a nation as a whole than a policy of deterrence. CON must prove that deterrence theory is still...

Persons convicted of a pedophilic crime ought to be treated and not incarcerated in all instances.

Crash12345
CBueno

(1) Pedophilia is a condition in which adults, or older teenagers are sexually attracted to preteen children. (2) If pedophiles where treated for their crimes, it could lead to a reduction in pedophilic based crimes. (3)Treatment means that the convicted pedophiles would receive a mandatory psych evaluation, and their needs to be attempts to rehabilitate them. (4) There may not be a cure for their condition, but treatment can help them control their urges. (5) A reduction in pedophilia would...

Officer Darren Wilson Should Have Been Indicted

BillionBrainCells
frozen_eclipse

There was enough evidence to at least take aspects of the case to trial. This is not a racial issue. This is not about political agenda's. This is about the simple fact a teenager was murdered in broad daylight. 15 witnesses say Brown had his hands in the air when the last shot was fired, 2 do not. Officer Wilson says he was in fear for his life "It was like a 5 year old vs. Hulk Hogan" but was not bleeding and did not have any visible facial injuries (besides a dime sized pink mark)....

Can we disprove or prove the existance of god?

theforthtriplet
gomergcc

How can we disprove or prove the existence of God? In my opinion we can't either way as we do not have sufficient enough evidence to prove the existence of god we can only rely on religious text and thought, we cannot prove that god does not exist as we do not have knowledge of the universe outside of the observable universe....

You need to have completed 3 debates to be able...

Ultimate Team War:Corrida Colosseum

Mr.Majestic
PeacefulChaos

This seemed pretty fun. I have no idea if this is still a thing or not. I'm most likely going to be owned in this. This is Ultimate Team War. Each debater must assemble a team of five characters, and the teams will then fight to the death(ish). Since we cannot have an actual real-life battle, each debater will explain why their team is superior during this debate. DEFINITIONS Team leader: One of the debaters here, i.e. me or my opponent Team member: One of the five chosen warriors. Team...
