Religion causes too much violence and is not needed in society.

MasterManav

In 1095, Pope Urban II said that God had come to him, and said that the Bible had a mistake and that it was okay to kill, just not to kill other Christians. Whereas the Bible said that killing anyone was wrong. "Whatsoever ye do unto the least of these, my brethren, ye do it unto Me." This means that it is God"s place to judge others not ours, for him to decide whether or not to use violence. Sometimes they refer to texts, such as the Old Testament or Bible, where their God has killed many for d...

Nationalism is Essential to Liberalism

LuciferWept
Nandu007

Greetings,I am choosing to debate whether Nationalism (that is, pride in one's home country and concern for one's own countrymen) is essential to the survival of Liberalism (the belief that the individual should be free so long as they do not cause direct harm to others, free from religious and social restraints). This is to be taken in opposition to the modern "Liberal"'s support for globalism.1) Acceptance & Opening Statements (NO SOURCES)2) Elaborate Ope...

Morality Objectified?

Sidex
distraff

Please forgive my apparent lack of education. I reserve the right to change my mind when presented with new information based on reason and logic. I will create a logic step attempting to prove the objectivity of morality. I have been searching for truth my entire life. I guess I'm just a kid trying to find his way in the world. I have always been trying to find the answer to "When should we act on what we know and don't know?" This is a question in which the answer implies why we do thin...

Can you objectify morality? Please forgive my apparent lack of education. I have had a difficult time being around people. I reserve the right to change my mind when presented with new information based reason and logic. I will create a logic step attempting to prove the objectivity of morality.

There is no such thing as "right" and "wrong".

jonahofdeath
frankfurter50

There is no such thing as right and wrong. Everything is nurtured to you as a child, and every "right" and "wrong" is just something society, religion, or parents have created. We are not born with a moral code to think that "killing is bad" or "killing is good", or "stealing is bad" or "stealing is good". Thinking as a moral nihilist, there are many ways to see that this is true. Other countries have different laws then us, which are "right" in their opinion. And who's to say they aren't?...

#First round is for accepting the debate.# So my opinion is that children should be introduced to philosophy and rhetoric at a younger age so they could better adjust to the mindset and so they would philosophise with greater adequacy and skill....

Can humans honestly understand the concept of nothing?

Logicality1
leedle

I honestly do not believe humans can understand nothing. Even if you assume that a space is empty, there is always a force affecting it in our minds. For example, if you imagine a black space in your head, there will always be a force, color, or change in that space, making the concept of nothing irrelevant, as there is always something effecting it. Take zero for example, the best example we have as a concept of nothing. Since numbers are a concept in general, and since zero is such an oddity e...
