Progress Supersedes Human Preservation

This is a theoretical debate. The voting style only allows for a winner to be selected as I wanted this debate to remain philosophical and rely solely on the participant's reasoning abilities and ideals, rather than sources or simply grammatical correctness. I advocate that should a system become available that allows for progress at the cost of human emotion/free will (perhaps a computer resembling that in the movie Transcendence) that it would be desirable over preserving the species as it is...

First Round is for acceptance. Example if we went for it: Atheists have one country, Christians have another, Jews have another, Muslims another, Communists have one, Capitalists have another. et cetera. Good Luck!...

Religious debates are boring

RobertMcclureSmith
aburk903

I will argue that religious debates are incredibly boring and provide little insight into anything but persist nonetheless. I am consider myself an apathetic atheist but have zero interest in taking part in the constant Christian v Atheist debate because it is pointless and exists, at least seemingly as a form of self-satisfaction and ego boasting, especially among atheists. My opponent should be an atheist If my opponent cannot use ideas found in the works and video clips of Christopher Hitc...

Can God create a rock so big he can't lift it, or can he not create the rock? answer is yes...

Can an Omnipotent God create a rock he cannot lift? it is said that If one answers yes to the question, then God is therefore not omnipotent because he cannot lift the rock, but if one answers no to the question, God is no longer omnipotent because he cannot create the rock. my position is that he can do one or the other, at different times, but he can't do both at the same time. and, that he can't do both at the same time doesn't disprove God as omnipotent. the question is basically anot...

Contender's Choice

I'd like to try something a bit different than proposing a topic I feel confident I cannot lose in. Anyone interested in accepting this debate must first go to my profile and choose a topic (big issues, politics, religion, etc.,) that they differ personally on and propose that topic in their first acceptance round. The only restriction is that I must have stated an opinion on the topic on my profile. If one wishes to believe something, one must be confident that they can defend said belief. Anti...

Socialism and Atheism should not mix.

Evannnn
aburk903

Only 500 words per argument. Socialism and Atheism should not mix. If nothing occurs after you die, then why do things for the 'greater good'? Its more about the individual if your Capitalist, more about living your life in the best way you can, more about doing things for yourself, because you only have one chance to. If your religious, it would make sense to be more giving and to work with Socialism, because when you die, everything is not over....

The first round of this debate will be for acceptance only. By Bible, I mean both the Old and New Testaments of the Christian Bible. Best of luck to my opponent....

Resolved: The largest cause of violence in America is Cadbury Creme Egg deprivation during childhood

I thank Aburk for agreeing to debate this with me. I have chosen him because he, so far, is the challenger with the highest number of debates won and the lowest number of debates lost. I do enjoy a good challenge. Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, this is a debate that is close to my heart. Cadbury Creme Eggs are the most beautiful little pieces of heaven that exist on earth. Or at least I think so. Format (me/my opponent): 1st round- Rules/acceptance 2nd round- Main arguments/arguments an...
