1st round is acceptence.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Murder is, first of all, immoral. If murder was legal, imagine everyone being able to kill whoever they wanted to. It would be awful. Also, the crime rate would be out of the roof because people could steal and if anyone tried to do anything, they could get killed. People would be scared every day, every hour, every minute, and every second.

Also this is a real debate, because I have heard people say murder should be legal. Anyways, your turn.

It should be their choice to kill who ever they want. Also, killing a christian basically means they are going to heaven sooner than usual, so your doing them a favor.

Pro

If people killed whoever they wanted to, we would be in a world of chaos. Also, Christians don't want to die. We want to live our lives, and then pass away naturally.

Pro

Dear pro, please keep this a peaceful argument. You are probably referring to a version of the old testament, which is a lot more harsh then the new testament. Also, in this world we live in today, we should allow everyone to be equal, and to all have equal safety. Murder is wrong, no matter who it is.

RFD: Neither side deserves a point. Before the debate, I firmly believed murder was categorically wrong. Now, I'm tempted to think we can make an exception for eliminating stupid people.

This "debate" was an exercise in nonsequiters. We start with, "If murder were legal, everyone would kill everyone else to steal their stuff." Really? The law is the only thing keeping Aunt Josephine from going on a rampage with a chainsaw? Also, making murder legal encourages theft?

Then we have, "Killing christians is OK, 'cause they believe in heaven. They LIKE being killed. Seriously. Just try it, see if they complain."

Also, "I have the right to kill anyone I want."

And then we have, "But the Bible condones murder, doesn't it?" "No, just the OT, and that's obsolete, so never mind it."

I can't even. There's too much stupid in this to even bother. Neither of the people who wrote this gave a single reason that even tangentially referred to anything that could possibly be stretched to resemble a valid argument for their position. THIS ISN'T WHY MURDER IS WRONG, PEOPLE. And it worries me that you don't have the slightest clue why.

It isn't wrong just because it isn't nice. Garbage collection and sewer maintenance aren't nice. Tax auditing isn't nice. They aren't wrong, either.

It isn't wrong because it scares people. Horror movies scare people. Your face scares people. Neither are illegal. Perhaps they should be, but they aren't.

It isn't wrong because murder encourages theft. What's wrong with you? Why would you even think that?

It isn't wrong because it is gruesome. Again, unpleasant isn't necessarily bad.

It isn't wrong because it is chaotic. Free trade is chaotic. Protests are chaotic. Birthday parties are chaotic.

It isn't wrong because everyone has the right to equal safety. That's circular thinking. "Murder is wrong because no-one should be killed." Try again.

Honestly? You should both take a good, long look at this. Morality is one of the enduring questions that people have argued for millennia; you'll never run out of things to read on this. You'll find lots of reasons why murder is wrong. You just failed to touch on any of
