The Universe could not come about through Natural Causes

tschuk

I would like to make the argument that the Universe could not have come about through natural causes, therefore the only option left is a Supernatural Creator. I am not arguing for any denominational god, but rather a Deist God. I expect for this debate to be civil, and for each party to refrain from insults. Thank you....

mwesigwa1

Moral ontology is the branch of meta-ethics that deals with the origin or existence of morality. Morality is often cited as proof that God exists, but this claim is usually not that atheists cannot decide right from wrong, but that without God, we have no foundation for morality. In other words, for morality to exist, it must be grounded on something, namely God. This is not a debate about moral epistemology, moral semantics, or normative ethics. It is about whether or not we can establish a...

In schools, there is an effort to get rid of bullying as some kids have committed suicide as a result. I agree that extreme bullying and bullying in General should not be tolerated, however the focus should be on empowering students to face bullying, stand up for themselves and others, and develop a backbone. Unfortunately with the emphasis on the bully and getting rid of bullying so much kids lose important opportunities to defend themselves or be courageous in the face of peers. Being bullied...

Possibilities are Potentially Now

Chaosism
vi_spex

Hi again, vi_spex! Please accept this challenge if you *disagree* with the statements the below.I wish to argue that beliefs, although you deem them false, are acted upon as if they were true. In essence, possibilities should not be universally accepted as false, but rather a fair amount of them should be treated as "potentially true". I will also argue that you almost certainly would not still be alive today if you had no beliefs, as you claim.I hav...
