Can The Bible and Evolution Both Be True? Why or why not?

Ask_The_Manatee
vegard95

I think that they both can be true. I believe that the bible is a metaphor.(Ex. the apple is sin) So lets think A theory is a theory; has any theory been truly correct? So is marginally correct correct? I think that certain aspects of "On Origin of Speices" are true and some are false. I think that god created us all, and got the ball rolling, and let evolution occur. He also guided the process along, and intervened especially with humans. I think he loves us all, and therefore gave us free wi...

Religon

DanielSaltine
ThesnamisSorreall

I believe that there is no logical argument that you can make to justify truly believing in any specific religion. Or for that matter to accept one religion over all others. The existence of God may have some pretty good arguments, but even then its hard to determine if there even is one....

Life is pointless.

BeardBoulevard
RowanM

Life means something to you until you die, and, depending on what you leave behind, maybe to beings in the future. But eventually, you will die, they will die, our planet will die, our species will die. And you were here for nothing. So make of life what you will, because it doesn't matter anyway....

Should eugenics be used to improve the human race?

corporealbeing
RedAnarchist

I believe eugenics is a viable option for improving the overall quality or life for all humans. Eugenics (also called scientific selection, or artificial selection) has a bad reputation, obviously because it was a tactic used by the Nazis to create a master Aryan race. I am here to defend it. By participating in this debate, you are hereby accepting the following: - Eugenics is defined as: the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding to increase the occurrence of desi...

God exists.

Ockham
harrytruman

The resolution is that God exists. In my first post, I will discuss some issues relating to definitions and then defend the burden of proof principle.Part 1: DefinitionsThe resolution has two terms, "God" and "exists."My opponent has the privilege of defining the term "God," since he is the one defending the claim that God exists. However, my opponent must not attempt to win the debate by appealing to a radically unorthodox definition. Fo...

[Your preferred theory of ethics] is tenable when examined closely

Reductio
ContraDictator

I will ask that my opponent represent a popular ethical framework, and I have given some options below. If you wish, you may represent an alternative view, however. Pro: Representing Mill's Utilitarianism, Kant's Formalism, Locke's Rights Ethics, or Aristotle's Virtue Ethics, present an argument that supports the validity of your position. Con: I will be arguing that not only are all systems of ethics irrational, but that they can be easily applied to opposing sides of a number of modern m...

Defining "Good" and "Evil"

albertack
ContraDictator

Many have attempted to define "Good" and "Evil." Most attempts (that I'm familiar with) appeal to very concrete behavior that can be generalized and universally applied. For example, "Thou shalt not kill."This, to me, is too simplistic. Does this apply in all cases and all scenarios? I believe accepting this generates a variety of conundrums, among them suggesting I cannot kill an intruder in my home who is attempting to kill my wife and child in cold blood. Thus I have rejected what I deem over...

I lifted this from a Cadillac Owner's Manual

The Penalty of Leadership (old Cadillac ad) "In every field of human endeavor, he that is first must perpetually live in the white light of publicity. Whether the leadership be vested in a man or in a manufactured product, emulation and envy are ever at work. In art, in literature, in music, in industry, the reward and the punishment are always the same. The reward is widespread recognition; the punishment, fierce denial and detraction. When a man's work becomes the standard for the whole world...
