Agnosticism is the most logical belief in regards to the idea of a higher power.

Pricetag

My reasoning behind the aforementioned statement is simply this. We don't know and we can't know much of anything especially in terms of the existence of God. Don't get me wrong I highly doubt that he exists; however in regards to metaphysics it's hard to explain the world and universe as is if you're a theist or an atheist. Here is my logic: 1. There is suffering and there is suffering abundantly on earth, this truism casts huge doubt on the idea of an all-powerful, loving, caring God. 2....

Smoking is good for you

stevster

(First off dont take this too seriously.... its basically a joke but it'll be fun debating it) Smoking alot of the times is good because it calms people down. As we all know, life is very stressful and a cigarette or some weed will often do wonders for a person's mental and emotional state. Further more, the sort of badass connatation that smoking has allows some people to feel good about themselves which is always a plus....

laissez-faire should exist but does not

mv

well to start off, it's french for "leave alone". obviously pertaining to the government and its interference of the people. typically it's the separation of economy and state. but our government has forgotten that our nation was to be established on a laissez-faire capitalistic system that would allow people to actually have rights without the government overlooking each individual thoroughly. do you think we have a state of laissez-faire in our nation? on paper, capitalism seems like the on...

Abortion is bad for women.

LoudounConservative

Abortion is almost always bad for individual women and is overwhelmingly bad for women in general. 1) Abortion hurts individual women psychologically. Just as not every person reacts the same way to other traumatic events, not every woman experiences serious post-abortion stress, however, studies suggest that at least 10% of women who experience abortion will experience some symptoms of post-abortion stress. Although complete numbers of women who have had abortions are unavailable, it is lik...

You simply can not justify being against capital punishment and being pro-choice.

megan91509

Some people claim to be totally pro-choice, but completely against the death penalty. That is two extremely hypocritical conflicting views. That makes no sense whatsoever. The opposing argument will probably be something along the lines of, "It is a person's choice to do what they want to their body." I am fully prepared to refute whatever my opponent has to say about this issue. In my personal opinion killing innocent babies, who have clearly done nothing wrong, is murder. Yes, it i...

death penalty and abortion should be illegal

mv

it's interesting that we as a nation are so worried about how high our crime rates are yet we hypocritically turn around and legalize abortion and the death penalty. how do we expect to turn people away from violence if we encourage it in our court and medical systems? as far as the issue of abortion is concerned, no baby should ever be slaughtered on account of the jackass mother or father that says "i don't want to bear a retarded baby" or "i'm only 16, i can't support it so let me just kil...
