TheSkeptic

Wikipedia says, "Nihilism (from the Latin nihil, nothing) is a philosophical position that argues that existence is without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value" Contention 1: It is impossible for one to be fully nihilist. Nihilists cannot participate in society. Everything in society requires purpose, objective meaning, or intrinsic value. All people play a role in society. Contention 2: In addition, all basic survival skills stem from purpose, objective meaning and intrinsic v...

Really what is the truth about the earth and how we got here?

GodSands

20 billion years ago. Nothingness. Then suddenly some unknown atom massed outwards into space, if only we could get our hands on this "atom", as there was space for this explosion to expand into there had to be time and existing matter there before. According to science outside the universe, it's a void where nothing can exist. So how did anything come together to begin with? So far I would say im being logical. Then the next part is chemical evolution, how and where did all these chemicals get...

We should have a civil war

debatergirl205

WE should have a civil war. I know you must be thinking is this girl crazy? NO i'm not crazy. If we have a war now all arguments would be settled. We would have all our anger out and maybe calm down enough to sign a treaty or something. This is a small argument....

Because there are Nonbelievers, God does not exist.

TheSkeptic

After starting this debate awhile ago, and seemingly to have lost it, I realized that I was quite unclear in my arguments, and am trying to try my hand at it again. Having done research, I fou...

Topic inside.

Global Anarchy is unsustainable

MaxHayslip

Anarchist Morality by P. Kropotkin. "The history of human thought recalls the swinging of a pendulum which takes centuries to swing. After a long period of slumber comes a moment of awakening. Then thought frees herself from the chains with which those interested --rulers, lawyers, clerics-- have carefully enwound her." 1) Lets say that tomorrow all states would be dissolved, but would we expropriate all land? If we dissolve the states tomorrow, there would be mass chaos, and the person wit...
