If God is not real, does human existence ultimately have any meaning?

DM71K
TheSymbiote

If God does not exist, then the universe and everything in it were created by mere chance, just purposeless forces of nature. Thus if the universe has no purpose, then human existence ultimately has no meaning whatsoever. One might argue that our lives do have meaning because we can influence others or affect the course of history. But this only shows a relative significance to our lives, not an ultimate significance. Our lives may be important relative to certain events, but what is the ulti...

Homework should be banned

m.pink_421

Homework should not be banned. While it takes time and seems pointless, it is one of the most useful learning tools us students have. I am willingly admitting that I have complained about homework, but I would never suggest it be banned. Some students learn the best at home, while others just need practice that cannot be done in school due to time restrictions. Homework needs to stay!...

Mario is un-Buddhist

DebateGirl221

Now listen here, I am 29 years old. I was there when the Super Nintendo first came out, and I got me my own system real quick. I had that first cartridge of Super Mario Bros, and I beat it in about a year of trying. I know a lot of you younger folk don't remember all that because you didn't exist, but I sure do. I'm an old school Mario fan. I've been through the N64 Mario, too. I know my stuff. And being an authority on the Mario, I am convinced today of this one thing: Mario is Un-Buddhist....

The Parental Advisory label is unnecessary and repressive

Adam2isback
focuswall

I will argue for the case. I believe the parental advisory label is outright unnecessary, the reason being that before this advisory came, there were already adult-oriented shops with explicit albums and adult stickers. I think it's an unfair pressure on companies started because Tipper Gore wanted to ban music that wasn't to her liking....

The only role of government is to protect persons and property from force.

Raistlin
aushhtinnn

The proposition in question involves a very influential and important topic. I will argue the libertarian/classical liberal position that the only place for government is to protect a person's rights to self ownership, thereby protecting his person, and to the fruits of his labour, thereby protecting his property. My opponent will argue that government has some other role i.e. universal healthcare or minimum wage. Good luck to my opponent....

This House Would Allow Secret Topics on DDO!

RevNge

Round one acceptanceSecret topics: Topics hidden until the beginning of the debate. The debaters choose the side, then the topic is randomly selected. These topics are chosen from this link: http://www.edeb8.com/motions.txt.The only exception considered is " That governments should only test drugs for safety, not effectiveness, before approving them for the public" (Because that topic is ridiculously biased) DDO:...

Racism reflects the truth

Credence
JayConar

I do not agree that racism is morally right, but it is founded upon the truth. I will use African Americans as an example. One may believe that a person having black skin is also lazy, aggressive, poor or stupid. In fact a person having black skin may in fact be lazy, aggressive, poor, or stupid. It is also true that a person having white skin may in fact be lazy, aggressive, poor, or stupid. The point I'm trying to make is that it is not the color of the skin that causes one to be la...
