A metaphysical Supreme Being exists. I affirm. Definitions: 1) Metaphysical: Not-physical, supernatural. 2) Supreme Being: A being greater then humans or any natural being 3) Exists: In actuality of some form Debate Outline: Pro/Con burden - Since proving or disproving the existence of a Supreme Being is directly impossible (At this time, then the burden to win is simple. Break the scale to one side. This is not an absolutist resolution, its a scale resolution. I.e. Neither the...

Religious books are the ONLY possible source of moral guidance

kgantchev
SnoopyDaniels

I'll start by defining the scope of this debate. We should only debate the possible sources of moral guidance, we should define a set of BASIC morals which we can use as a basis for the argument (and I'll leave that to my opponent), here are the definitions: [DEFINITION: source] 1. any thing or place from which something comes, arises, or is obtained; origin: [DEFINITION: moral] 1. of, pertaining to, or concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between ri...

Religion (Creationism/ID) should NOT be taught as science in public schools!

kgantchev

First of all, I'd like to thank the debater who takes on the opposite view! I look forward to debating these points. There are several reasons that Religious establishments should not be allowed to dictate what's being taught in public school science classes (USA specific): 1. It goes against the first amendment of the US constitution. Legally, the US does not endorse ANY religious establishment. Some people might argue that the US is built on Christian Values. Even if this is true, the U...

Hermaphrodites are proof that homosexuality is not just a life-style

kgantchev

First, I shall request that the observers vote for the best argument! Second, I'd like to define hermaphrodite: adj : (biology) of animal or plant; having both male female reproductive organs [syn: hermaphroditic] n : one having both male and female sexual characteristics and organs; at birth an unambiguous assignment of male or female cannot be made [syn: intersex, gynandromorph, androgyne, epicine, epicine person] Biological Clarifications: A person born with both ovary and te...

Gay marriages should be federally legalized in the United States.

I. I am gay. I was made a certain way and never had a choice. It was important for me to use many sources and ALL ARE SCIENTIFICALLY BASED. I know how easy it is to find a non-scientific biased site, but all of my sources are scientific. II. Homosexuality is natural. It is not a choice. Nobody would choose homosexuality if it was a choice. Homosexuality is a natural occurence in animals and in environments without contact from other societies.

Cutting Diplomatic Ties Resolves Nothing: Unconditional diplomacy is best.

Ahking
SnoopyDaniels

As Pro, I am going to argue that unconditional diplomacy and negotiations with opposing states are better policies than cutting diplomatic ties with them to talk only when a state meets certain conditions. As Con, you argue the opposite. Define 'opposing state' as a state - at peace - that presents an economic or security threat to America or an ally. Good luck! Unconditional diplomacy is much more likely to achieve favorable results whereas conditional diplomacy is not. Whe...

The Trinity: A False Doctrine

SnoopyDaniels

As far as I'm concerned, the burden of proof is on my opponent to show why, for example, scriptures like Deuteronomy 6:4 ("Hear O Israel, the Lord your God is One Lord") should not be taken at face value. My opponent, I hope, will excuse any sarcasm or irreverence that I may fail to repress, as my family and I have had rather bad experiences revolving around the Trinity doctrine. Ours and several other families were forced to leave a homeschool group because we refused to sign a "confession of f...

Barack Obama Would Be a Better President than McCain or Clinton.

Ahking

I'm sure there are others like me who are very excited about the 2008 presidential election. With so much at stake and some very well qualified candidates across the board, this election will be very historic. I am hoping for a well informed opponent who has a strong position and a good nature towards this topic. Good luck. This 2008 election marks the end of the George Bush era - one marked by bitter partisan divides overseeing our economy crumble, the war in Iraq fester, the war on Terr...

Barack Obama would be a Better President than John McCain.

Ahking

Hello again, my opponent asked for this debate while I had an identical debate running. Seeing as how my other opponent is taking some time to respond, I figured I would oblige LR4N6FTW3EVA. Here is the same first argument, hopefully both debates won't run parallel, but maybe they will. Since they might, it'd be better to run them simultaneously so this opponent can't use the first one to draw from. Good luck! This 2008 election marks the end of the George Bush era - one marked by bitter...

Legalize Marijuana for ALL uses.

Ahking

Marijuana should be completely legalized for medical and recreational use. Marijuana is completely safe. Marijuana is very healthy. The illegality of Marijuana and criminalization of Marijuana users is an unnecessary and harmful restriction on American culture and its citizens. I await someone to challenge these three points....
