Your future self is a clone of you.

djlad
JustinPatrickShurie

There is nothing that distinguishes a clone of you from your future self. I do not share my future experiences with my future self the same way a clone would. (ie: if i hurt my future self I do not feel it now. This works in reverse presuming that the damage is repaired immediately) The cells of my future self may be completely different in the same way a clone is. One might say that I will experience my future self's experiences. How would you know if your future self isnt just a copy...

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Capitalistslave

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT THESE ATHEISTS KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET NOT ONE HAS ANSWERED MY Q. Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. SO,...

The Existence of Beauty

B_Brutal
Luimm

Beauty doesn't exist, it has simply been altered too much from an original form and lost it's meaning, redefinition of beauty makes it a defined term rendering it void of any true existence. The only way for beauty to exist is linguistically or through opinion. However, since linguistically society has changed the definition through time we can never accomplish true beauty. Furthermore, being a matter of opinion and having opinions vary it cannot exist in a singular state from person to person....

If The Universe Has A Cause, That Cause Is A Personal Mind

Rational_Thinker9119
philochristos

I would like to debate Philochristos on this subject as I feel he is one of the most skilled Theists on this site. In this debate we will assume that the universe began to exist, and has a cause. It will be Pro's job to show that this cause is a personal mind, and my job to show why Pro's reasoning doesn't stand up to critical scrutiny. In Pro's last round he will simply put "no argument will be posted, as agreed." My opponent's first arguments will be posted in round one; no acceptan...

Free will is incompatible with determinism. Free will is incompatible with indeterminism. No clever mix of determinism and indeterminism solve either incompatibility. Therefore, free will is an incoherent concept....
