Yep

Pro

I'm open to all debate styles. I am affirming, and the first round is for acceptance only. Debate will be AC, NC and Refutations, AC Rebuttal, NC Rebuttal. 3 round debate
RougeFox

Con

I feel like this might be a bad decision, but I'll take this.

I will let you know that I will be running different positions and that you have the burden to prove two things:

1. Moral Permissibility is acceptability

2. Moral Premissiblity is not obligation

I think that since the comments indicate that this topic might be a little bit biased to your side, I think you can agree to that.
Debate Round No. 1
Yep

Pro

I concede to my opponent, vote negative
RougeFox

Con

Oh okay. I had arguments for the topic as it was worded. But, if you want to concede, I guess that's okay.

Sorry about the wording issue dude. I'd be happy to have the correctly worded debate with you (or this one).

Vote con I guess.
Debate Round No. 2
Yep

Pro

Wording messed it up it's fine we might be able to debate later, vote con anyway
RougeFox

Con

If you insist...

Vote con.

I noticed 2 of you put in rfd that im forfeiting alot, well honestly i just made this account and i made2 debate topics at once, both of which were worded incorrectly, so i simply conceded both because i don't see why people ff and screw other people over. So, i apologize to those i'v angered but i can assure you the debates i'm in right now are ones i plan on winning.

Had to add, I also don't get it. I would recommend rephrasing and reposting.

No, what he is arguing is that amorality is not morality.

There are three possibilities for the moral worth on action.

1. Moral-obligation to do it
2. Amoral-permissible (there is no obligation, but it is not prohibited. Exampe: eating a sandwich)
3. Immoral-obligation to not do it

This is not a debate. This is a fact.

I think maybe he's tryna say that, doing a s morally good deed is not something one should be obligated to do?

True. But that's not exactly what he's proposed.

Reasons for voting decision: So I gave the conduct point to Pro because at least he posted arguments up saying he concedes rather than forfeiting every round, not many people have the balls to do that. I gave arguments to Con because Pro conceded
