The Scientific Method is the only way to gain Truth

Mhykiel
Ozzyhead

The Scientific Method is NOT the only way to gain truthful knowledge. My first example is Art. One can describe art as a process in which a subject is deconstructed and parts of the subject matter are given differing degrees of attention. Also in Art Sometimes a process in regards to one subject is then performed on another subject. This can lead a person to question a matter differently and ultimately come to a more reasonable or more truthful view of the subject. Because this is one alterna...

When we buy tickets to a movie, we support the content of its message.

Observe, if you will, that when one buys a ticket to a movie, one influences a string of causation threading backward from the cash register, to the bookkeeper, to management, to the theater"s CEO where is determined the fate of the cinematic production in question. From here, the string does not terminate. It continues its trek perhaps even to the hills of Hollywood where directors and producers must collaborate to make their art palatable to Main St. (average Joe) so that Wall St. (the CEO) an...

It is okay to debate using "false" definitions

Mhykiel
9spaceking

I've debated another member and I see them getting some heat for using a definition for Atheism that others disagree with. I think this is unfair to them. I take the pro position that if one begins a debate defining the terms this is acceptable. If the definition and assertion of the debate is circular that would make it non-debatable is being fallacious would be another argument. But it is acceptable to use the terms as defined. Con can begin arguing in first round. "False" definition bei...

The Law is Absolute

Jevinigh

Argument is over the absolution of Law. Pro will attempt to argue that under no circumstances is it right to act out side of the law-against the law. ( put differently) Pro will attempt to argue that no act of rebellion to the law in the United States is legitimate and only legal.oredly changes can be legitimate. Con (myself) is tasked with setting up an argument that an Act of rebellion, out side the law, against a law, can be justified logically and in a scenario...
