Occam's Razor Applies To The Theory of God!

Ajab

Greetings! I have seen that in many debates the argument of Occam's Razor is used to debunk the concept of God. It is argued that because the belief that God does not exists is less complex, we must reach the conclusion that God does not exist. For this debate we will assume that Occam's Razor is a sound theory. My opponent should start immediately. As for the explanation as what is Occam's Razor I present the following: 1. 'we may assume the superiority ceteris paribus [all things bei...

Pro-Life Results in Punishment for Women

Since Con and I can not come to an agreement, we decided to let the DDO users decide. Pro-Life: The position that abortion should be illegal. Women: Any woman who is pregnant and wishes to have an abortion. I will leave "punishment" as part of the debate to be reasonably interpreted. Standard debate rules apply....

America is being "dumbed down"

No Wikipedia No adding new arguments in later rounds No profiles that claim they are 100 years old. Nobody under 18. No word games. No playing with semantics. No vague definition of words. If you use a word that can have several meanings, make it clear what you actually mean. Texting has encouraged young people to stop caring about spelling and grammar. Ur, U, B4, Y and other "abbreviations" are even showing up in student school papers. http://www.suntimes.com/news/education/4600849-4...

That it is possible to give an objective vote for any given debate

Double_R

My opponent and I will be debating whether or not it is necessary to bring one's personal opinion into a vote when voting on a debate. I have the BOP in this debate to show that it is not necessary, that is, that the vote for any given debate can be objectively derived. Structure will be as per normal for DDO debates. First round is acceptance. Some definitions: Objective = not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased (http://dictionary.refe...

The ontological argument

Jake2daBone
Double_R

This is Christopher McHugh's version of the Ontological arugment, and it goes like this: 1) God's existence is either logically impossible or logically necessary. 2) God's existence is not logically impossible. 3) Therefore, God necessarily exists. Premise 1 is true because the definition of God does not allow for contingency; it either necessarily exists or it necessarily doesn't exist. Premise 2 is true because it is possible to define God using only negative properties; such proper...
