Quotation Philosopher Debate - Utilitarianism (pro) vs. Deontology (con)

Surrealism
Philocat

This is just a little experiment I'd like to try out. The essence of this is that it is a "quatation debate" meaning that we will debate the topic, in this case Utilitarianism vs. Deontology, using only quotations from the relevant philosophers.Rebuttals will be less important here, as we will be mostly trying to build our case better than our opponent. That is why there are only three rounds.Round One - Acceptance and state your most important philosopher.

this is not me trying to beat you over the head with a bible if your not a Christian. if, however you are then maybe this just slipped your mind but to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord. I had the same question as well. while for me, this line from the bible is enough for me, you also have to figure out the problem we would have with overcrowding. if you believe in natural selection this would also prevent it from happening. I admit that if it were possible I would certainly...

Is it plausible for life to not have some kind of a Creator, beyond a reasonable doubt?

Plausible: Seeming reasonable Beyond a reasonable doubt: Evidence that is beyond the doubt of reason is the standard of evidence r...

Human can't chage his destiny

idocare
Zarroette

I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfil our destiny, but our fate is sealed.

Heaven/Hell cannot exist.

This will be my first debate after months of reading many great debaters debates such as bluesteel, 16kadams, bsh1, Envisage, Zarroette, ImaBench. Though they do not know me, I am very grateful for making their opinions available for everyone to consider. Our debate here calls heaven and hell' existence into question. This of course causes the christian god' existence to be called into question. I will primarily be arguing the prior, as the latter is a natural conclusion. Here is some cla...
