Any Transcendental Objective Meaning to Human life is both Illusory and destructive.

dannyc
Wylted

My contention for this proposition is that I feel any attempt to establish an Objective Meaning, a meaning which transcends or holds true to all of those who are members of the species H. sapiens, is not only an illusory prospect but one which has more destructive implications than positive. I require Con to obviously propose a framework for an objective meaning, including specifically a or many meanings, to use the term loosely. 1st Round. Accept and give your argument. 2nd Round.

Utilitarianism is in principle a better system of morality.

Bullish
Bochoyboy

Note: I have made this debate impossible to accept. To be considered for accepting this debate, please state the moral system you will be arguing for in the comments section. Topic:I take the position that "Utilitarianism is in principle a better system of morality." My opponent must choose a sufficiently different system of normative morality and argue in favor of it. The winner is the one who shows his morality system to be better.

Thanks Envisage for accepting this debate. First round for acceptance I'm pro, Envisage will be Con. BOP is on me. 'God' is the Deistic concept of God. (Creator, transcendent, powerful) Enjoy!...

Do everything happen for a reason or is it up on fate?

Fb6
ordinaryman

Many things happen but we don't find the reason why they happened or why it went that way when there were many other logical possibilities. Quantum physics nowadays is finding new ways of predicting the future.It doesn't give us an answer about what makes things happen but it says that it happens because it has x/y chances so it was fate. I do personally thing that non-intentional actions are not true.I believe in the rationality of everything.Not even a leave leaves its limb without a reason...

Abortion is morally permissible within 1st trimester

Vere_Mendacium
JasperFrancisShickadance

Abortion is morally permissible within the 1st trimester, and should not require the pretext of a rape, incest, or medical complication to validate it as such. While it should require the consent of both 'parents' (in my opinion), we will not discuss this point in addition. This debate will center only on the morality of abortion within the period between conception and the 1st trimester. This time period allows for an unknowingly pregnant mother time to notice the pregnancy through lack of a me...

Abortion and murder are not morally equivalent.

toughenough
Surrealism

So you screwed up, you got boned and some of his semen, or all of it, went inside of you and now you're pregnant. You don't want the baby and the exhaustion of having it could ruin all the plans of life that you had but there is a medically safe procedure to carry out to kill the fetus.So you go up to the abortion clinic and the doctor turns around and tells you "Sorry but you're not allowed to do that because that little guy their has a right to life that surpasses your rig...

story of noah and the references from those in the NTestament add to discrediting the bible

dairygirl4u2c
Theistfaithreason

the story of noah and the references from those in the NTestament add to discrediting the bible here is the text,which argues the flood was world wide, and wiped out every creature alive that was not on the boat. "The clearest verses that show the extent of the flood are Genesis 7:19-23. Regarding the waters, "They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet. Ever...
