All Propositions Are True

ElliottR

Consider the proposition p = "A rectangle is a square." Since some rectangles are squares, a rectangle is a square. Thus, p is true. Since some rectangles are not squares, a rectangle is not a square. Thus, p is not true. So by Conjunction Introduction, p is true and p is not true. But that is a contradiction. Since every proposition follows from a contradiction by the Principle of Explosion, the proposition "all propositions are true" is true. Therefore, all propositions are true....

Abortion

Whether or not you're a religious person, abortion is wrong in all ways. Recently, I wrote an Argumentative Essay about abortion. I am stunned by all the evidences that it is wrong. The common argument, "It's the woman's body, she has the right to choose", is scientifically wrong. Every cell of the mother's tonsils, appendix, heart, and lungs shares the same genetic code. The unborn child also has a genetic code, distinctly different from his mother's. Every cell of his body is uniquely his, eac...

Racial/Religous Profliling

What this debate will revolve around is the idea that racial profiling can help law enforcement reduce crime rates in urban and/or rural areas. In this debate I will take the position of being against racial profiling as it only helps to discriminate against marginalized communities. The following are the definitions to be used in this debate: Racial/Religious profiling: Profiling someone based on their religion or race This debate will center around whether it is rational to profile p...

(I'm new) Objective morality MUST exist.

AlanTiany
FreshMeat12

1) Atheists say we as a society collectively determine our morals. And that they can sometimes change or evolve. So what happens if the larger majority of our collective society decide tomorrow that rape is morally acceptable because it propagates reproduction and therefore our species will grow and be stronger? Obviously this is hypothetical but I'm saying this to say that your, the atheists explanation is totally arbitrary. 2) Atheists always sound like they are evolutionists. But the fou...

Guns are not the problem

Coveny
SpicyChicken

The media and fear have turned guns into a polarizing issue, when in reality homicides only account for roughly 8 thousand of the 2.6 million or so people who died in 2014. If you look at the overall picture, guns are not the reason Americans are dying....

NASA should develop a hybrid Startram system to save fuel

Coveny
henry2833

It currently takes NASA over 3 million lbs of fuel to get the space shuttle into space. A hybrid open air maglev system releasing the shuttle going 300 mph at the top of Mount Elbert (23,533 ft above sea level) could provide initial thrust and reduce the amount of fuel used per flight dramatically, from 0 mph release at sea level that is currently in use. The cost to build the hybrid system would be a significantly lower capital expense than a full startram system. (even if the cost per launch w...

Facebook and Instagram Should Allow Pornography

holla1755
IHaveTerribleOpinions

Freedom of expression encourages freedom to post pornography on Facebook and Instagram. The First Amendment to the United States' Constitution may require pornography to be legal. While all constitutional laws may not directly apply to the businesses of private organizations such as Facebook and Instagram, Facebook's and Instagram's rules can be thought of as extensions of these laws and thus it seems virtuous for Facebook and Instagram to have all of their rules agree with as many constitutiona...
