Euthyphro dilemma is still a sound argument against Devine command theory

twighlighttrees
daley

In this debate I choose to defend the euthyphro dilemma in that it is still a sound argument against the divine command theory. While my favorite topic of debate there are still those who wish to attack the dilemma and this debate is posted so you may have that chance. My initial argument to defend it is that there is no sound argument against it as of yet, and while there may be arguments that seem sound they fail to answer the over lining question of the dilemma which is, what is good? ""Is wh...

No such thing as good an evil but all is controlled by perception of temporal cause and effect

Cgwam
Ajabi

I'd like to debate the essence of good and evil and it's potential non-existence as an independent entity. I argue that good is not a constant and can not exist as a solo entity. I like to debate with a con who can prove me wrong that good is indeed it's on constant and can stand as an independent factor . What is good can only be determined by what is bad and likewise what's bad can only be determined by what is good. Hence when we say what is good we in essence can say what is not bad( wh...

Atheism is a religion

Atheism, or any unmotivated claim that God doesn't exist, is to be considered a religion because it states something we don't have evidences for. Religious is any thought that implies believing without proofs....

Final debate on objective morality

benko12345678
Ajabi

Hi ajab, this is my final attempt at moral debates :P I learned from my past mistakes and I asked mikal to be an ad-hoc judge. First round is starting argument. I won't divide it into several points because I'm too lazy. I found something in the quran. Quote (in english) 'Wish for your brother, what you wish for yourself.' NOTE: this quote will become important near the end. If morality is indeed objective, why are there so many different sects of all religions with different views? With d...

Do animals have souls?

funnycn
Burls

I do not believe animals have souls. For the purpose of this debate, humans will not be included as an "animal". The purpose of this is to leave out pointless debating. You may post your argument in the first round, as I will. My argument goes as follows: The definition of "soul" is "The spiritual principle embodied in human beings, all rational and spiritual beings, or the universe" [http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/soul] and animals are not rational beings; they may be aware...

Reason alone cannot make us live a moral life

Truth_seeker
Mikal

I argue that reason alone cannot make us moral. Here are my terms: Morals - Right and wrong can be defined by any society, beliefs, or religion of your choice. Reason - Application of facts and logic to consciously make an informed decision Reward - Arriving at the desired results by applying reason, physical, mental, or verbal action Negative consequence - The opposite of a reward, only that regardless of whether or not the applications were made, the desired results were not ach...
