There is no such thing as an 'Immovable Object'

TheTheoreticalPhilosopher
MyGodKilledYourGod

My argument is that there is currently no such thing as an 'Immovable Object'. I argue that is physically impossible to be an immovable object. We are technically traveling through space at an "x" miles/per hour, thus concluding that every object known in existence always moves. Two objects with the exact same force may collide together, but the gravity in the galaxy will still keep the objects moving through the universe. I only know of one way there could be an immovable object. My opponent...

Omnipotence is rational

TheTheoreticalPhilosopher
Sonofcharl

THIS IS A 1 ROUND DEBATE. The purpose of this debate is to make a case that the oxford dictionary website should change its definition of 'Omnipotence' to include the word 'infinite' to be replaced with 'unlimited'. Even though it essentially means the same thing, the latter does not imply the inherent logic "Omnipotence" needs to maintain is the practical use of being a word. Humans are now more imaginative than ever creating new paradoxes to undermine the word "Omnipotence". If we associate th...

The Free Will Defense Provides Adequate Justification for the Existence Of Evil.

ninjakitty97

The problem of evil, which attempts to disprove the existence of an omnipotent, benevolent creator, typically follows this line of reasoning: (1) God, if he exists, is all-powerful, and therefore could eliminate evil. (2) God is all-good, and therefore would want to eliminate evil. (3) Evil exists. (4) Therefore, an all-powerful, all-loving God cannot exist. I, Pro, will argue that the existence of evil is due to human action, and therefore is not inconsistent with the existence of a b...

Why don"t we watch our leader 24/7

Wengerocracy
ZaynMalik

I am just a human who thought of the idea to watch the leader of the country. Civilocity is a new neologism that describes a form of government where the people get to watch the leader of their country for the entire time anybody ever leads their country. Why don"t we watch the leader of our country? The obvious fact is; we do watch the leader of our country. We just don"t watch them 24/7. So, why don"t we watch our leader 24/7? One reason we don"t is; we like the leader of our count...
