Abortion

Chalz

Abortion is a human taking away the life of another human. A baby does doesn't magically appear in a woman. If you don't want a baby, Don't mate or use condoms. Why does it have to go so far as to kill a growing human. Also, Besides abortion taking away lives, It also hurts the woman in many ways. And this in no way should be tied to women's rights, Just because she likely authorized the mating processes (fringe cases can be discussed later on in the debate)....

Here's a scenario for you supposed christians: There's you, A gunman with a shotgun, And your very best friend in one room.

Yes____? If the answer is "Yes" that you would renounce your faith, That you would no longer believe in your religion, God, Christ and bible then you risk your unproven god"s ete...

Why do people believe in the christian god of the bible that has never been proved?

Why do people believe in the christian god of the bible that has never been proved in the first place? Is it because people have low self esteem and they believe that believing in this god will help themselves lift their spirits? Probably. Is it because people have not read their bible's and they have no idea whatsoever as to what is stated in it? Probably. Is it because people fear what they don't understand? Probably. Is it because people are stupid and believe in nothing? Probably. Is it beca...

Trying to live forever

Sonofcharl

I'd prefer to debate a person who does not believe in a life after this one. Seems to me existence ought be a driving interest of a person. But more than that, I say it 'ought be 'the driving interest in a person. I exist. . . . . I exist. . . . . . What a wonderful phrase. Solipsism is it, Where people are so sure of that one concept? I exist. So then, Damn all the rest. Damn morality. Damn ethics. Damn people and all the rest. To keep that thought, That sentiment going, What price 'cou...

I am trying to prove why levelized games are better than competitive on the next round. Your job is to prove why competitive games are better. Reasons m...

Humans are the least peaceful creatures that ever existed in history

squeakly54n6

Humans are indeed the most peaceful creatures that ever existed. The argument for the topic is, The dino era is the most peaceful era because the earth was more peaceful, Evolution destroyed us in a way and humans are more stupid for causing things to get worse. The dinosaurs are more peaceful in their respective period and nothing went wrong because they lived for 300 million years without ill happenings occuring. The only way they were swept off was because of a natural calamity (asteroid). My...

Explain your votes thoroughly, Not a strict rule but a preference. List of the ArgumentsYou may choose one of the five to argue against or all five, It hardly matters to me, But articulate w...
