OneElephant

Con

In the opinion feature, my opponent questioned what would stop us from killing each other if it weren't for theism intervening and establishing a reward/consequence for moral actions. Since I could not respond to my opponent via posts, I thought I'd challenge him to a debate instead.

Definitions:

Morals: The concept of right and wrong behavior.
Byproduct: A side effect - an indirectly created concept or product.
Theism: The belief in the existence of one or more gods.

Good luck to my opponent, if he chooses to accept!
