This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts Are Immoral!

Ajabi
kbub

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This debate entitled: This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts are Immoral is a re-do of one of the first debates I had from my old account. I lost miserably to kbub and I would like to see if my refined argument can now hold any ground. Now I believe that I should clarify the rules, the order, and some principle definitions which will be referred to throughout the debate. 1. The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no...

the golden rule in application is unclear

linate
Pfalcon1318

do unto others as you'd have them do unto you. one might argue the golden rule is clear, but could only referring in that instance that the rule is stated clearly. i agree with that. that's why i said 'in application' in the opening statement, it's not clear. if it is clear, what are the guiding principles that can determine how to act in accordance with it? instead of a mess of ideas, given this idea is hard for me to discuss in the abstract, i will give an example. for example.

'defense of others' 2 limited in practice, killing serial killer bob isnt inherently immoral bob is a serial killer on the run and's shown every reason he'll continue killing. you see him by chance at a state park. a high reason to think if you try to call authorities he will get away. u have a gun- moral to kill him? remember, 'defense of others' as a legal and moral system is often said to be only permissible if the pending harm to another is 'imminent' which usually is said to mean 'rig...

Science, by itself, can determine moral truths

BaruchSpinoza
rings48

Round 1: acceptance only Round 2: opening statements (reserve rebuttals for round 3) Round 3: rebuttals Round 4: closing statements (no new arguments) I mean science to include the whole of the natural and social sciences, and more specifically any practice in which beliefs are primarily determined by hypothesis-testing and rigorous collection of empirical data. I mean morality to be the abstract system of values used to judge human affairs. I am not referring to actual moral practices...
