I Am Psychic

I am a psychic. I've proven it before. Whomever accepts this debate, I will guess their full name (including their middle name) and the members of their family, to prove my case....

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Capitalistslave

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT THESE ATHEISTS KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET NOT ONE HAS ANSWERED MY Q. Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. SO,...

Your future self is a clone of you.

djlad
JustinPatrickShurie

There is nothing that distinguishes a clone of you from your future self. I do not share my future experiences with my future self the same way a clone would. (ie: if i hurt my future self I do not feel it now. This works in reverse presuming that the damage is repaired immediately) The cells of my future self may be completely different in the same way a clone is. One might say that I will experience my future self's experiences. How would you know if your future self isnt just a copy...

Whether animals deserve moral treatment.

Prox
AlextheYounga

Con Position: Animals neither have nor deserve rights, or any sort of moral treatment. Specifically, I will be arguing that morality only makes sense with respect to human agents and agents that can/may mimick human intelligence. Animals should only be treated as things or property. My opponent argues that animals should be treated with moral respect. We each will have to posit and defend an ethical philosophy as a framework to consider this issue, along with the issue, itself. Af...

How would an atheist prove the existence of color as an asthetic concept to a blind man?

ViceRegent
vardaanbhat

Do atheists know that their physical senses are the only ones? What would they say to a blind man who said there are only four senses, denying the existence of the sense of sight. He demands evidence from you as to the existence of color as an asthetic concept. What would you say?...

People should NOT own guns

Mickeymouseman
TUF

People shouldn't own guns. Guns are a problem in society, and result in the death of thousands every year. Whoever accepts this will have to prove how guns are helpful rather tahn a problem. Ican't grasp how anyone could even be for gun rights!...

"Are we humans exactly like stones thrown in a river?"

ImSomebody
InfiniteBears

Rules1. I must argue in favor of the resolution that we humans aren't exactly like stones thrown in a river.2. First round for acceptance.3. BoP is on me; As much as you can prove why we are like humans, if there is at least ONE difference, I win (Hence the resolution ("Exactly")).4. No trolling.Failure to follow these rules will result in a 7-point forfeiture....

ViceRegent
Cluckelite

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...
