God Must Exist

Kollo
squonk

Everything in the universe must have a cause, or else it would not be. We can trace back all these causes to the very beginning of the universe. The Cause that began with it all must be in some way different to all other causes: it must be itself uncaused. We cannot imagine how something could be not be caused except in one case. If the First Cause existed outside of time, then it would be silly to speak of it being caused, since Cause and effect require time to be in operation for them...

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
SimplyJoshmala

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,...

Human rights are for psychos as well

dr.jimmythefish
GoOrDin

If you denied all who revoked the basic rights of man the basic rights of man then, 1 you're being a hypocrite as you're doing just that, and 2 you leaving what these rights are to whom exactly? Yourself? Then hello Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin to the twenty first century and the internet. Stop and think if you deny the most basic of rights what makes you better then them, you devalue the idea of inalienable to mean for my people when convenvent....

Is socialism a half measure and thus unequal to the challenge of freeing the poltrariut.

dr.jimmythefish
Capitalistslave

Socialism is like recreational war, it lacks the totality of its opponents. Thus it will never be common on a global scale as humans are creatures of extremes. You will fail to win as you lack total conviction, as with war you win by being ruthless and extreme, if you sympathize with the enemy then you will lose....

Inaction in the face of injustice makes an individual morally culpable.

Danielle
That1User

Congratulations to That1User on making it to the final round of bsh1's Unique Topics tournament! I appreciate your patience in the delayed challenge, and I look forward to a very thought provoking discussion. As far as I can tell, the resolution is self-explanatory and the definitions are standard. I would like to disqualify the use of semantics. For example, a person being inactive due to physical or mental handicap is not sufficient. I expect my opponent and the audie...

There is no life after death.

KingVeridical
SirBadgerLock

There is no proof that when you die there is anything after it. When you die there is no life after death. Anyone believing otherwise, although optimistic, is not thinking rationally. Death is very simple, you die, and that is it, your consciousness ceases to exist and your body no longer functions, then your flesh decays and your bones are left for archeologists to find centuries later....

Assassination, in an effort to save lives.

KingVeridical
Qwerty750

If you could kill one child just by pulling a trigger, knowing that doing so would save 10,000 innocent children from dying by the childs hands, knowing that if you do not kill the child it will kill those 10,000 innocent children for no reason, knowing there is no way to stop the child and you only have two options, pull the trigger, or walk away, what would you do? Pull the trigger is Pro/For. Walk away is Con/Against. If you walk away, the very next day that child plants a bomb on the...
