Resolved : A Christian God is necessary in order for objective morality to exist.

Mikal
Lupricona

BOP is on Pro. We kind of threw back ideas as to what the resolution should be, but we finally went with this one. Christian God - The Judeo-Christian God (Yaweh, etc) Objective morality - is the idea that a certain system of ethics or set of moral judgments is not just true according to a person's subjective opinion, but factually true Pro shall begin his arguments in round 1 and pass in the final round to even out the rounds. He has the BOP as he is the affirmative in this de...

If ebola breaks out in US first, would things be different?

MiaWaran

Ebola is a disease that kills up to 90% of those infected. There are five strains, and the one in the West Africa is the Zaire Strain. The symptoms of Ebola include headache, vomiting, diarrhea, and bleeding. However, this disease will not spread in America. It is widely known, and proven, that Ebola only spreads through bodily fluids of an infected person who is already showing symptoms. That significantly increases the disease efficiency in poor and illiterate places, such as Africa, where...

Are driverless cars trustable on roads?

The technology behind driverless cars is rapidly becoming more and more prevalent. Google, Audi, and countless other companies are all nearing completion of their own models in a scientific arms race. Many people are concerned that without drivers, cars would be unpredictable, and since they are susceptible to hacking, malfunctions, etc., this would pose a major threat to other cars on the road. However, I do not view this as a legitimate issue. I would like to remind everyone that at the mo...

Should the death penalty be illegal?

EliasL
savannah1006

I believe that the death penalty should be illegal in ALL states (and the world for that matter) due to the fact that there is no crime that should be punishable by death. For example, if there is a murder (i.e. Jodi Arias), and the defendant is found guilty, the government has no right to kill him/her due to the fact that this too is murder....

Our Future Is NOT In Space

Smikes

Many progressives seem to cling to this belief that we will certainly - beyond a shadow of a doubt - colonize other planets in the future. And by "colonize," I specifically mean establishing self-sustaining colonies of *people* on other planets (or moons, for that matter). But personally, I have a hard time believing it. Here's why I'm so skeptical...

Should cell phones be allowed in school?

Dheu

I think cell phones should not be allowed in school because: 1. Cell phones are a major distraction. 2. You can get phone calls in the middle of class 3. In a lockdown, you can get phone calls. FACTS: 1. Students could get in trouble for playing games in classes 2. Students may get too much screen time 3. Cell phones give off a small amount of radiation 4. Some kids may not have enough money to buy one....

Can a person remain moral when emotional influence is entirely replaced by logical analysis alone?

Stefy
EliasL

If we make the assumption, and I acknowledge it is an assumption, as this is a somewhat hypothetical scenario, that an entirely logical being would want society to run as efficiently and as widely beneficial as possible, then this statement is true. However, the situation must be examined from two angles; One, the logical person living in the world we live in now, exactly as it is, and two, the logical person living in a world full of nothing but other fully logical people. In the first scenari...

The Trinity Is NOT Biblical

theskeptik

I will explain why I do not believe the Bible teaches the trinity doctrine. Con must show that the Bible does teach the trinity doctrine. Con may give his arguments first in round 1. Most convincing arguments should get majority of votes. Thank you....
