Could we consider as philosophers non academic people (eg. Rappers, Artists, Poets, etc)?

ProDester

So the other day I had this argument with a friend and pretty much I was the one considering street artists, rappers, etc the modern philosophers and that we could compare such people with Plato, Aristotle,etc to a certain extend. To support my argument I would just say that since a philosopher doesn't need an academic background (mandatory) and since that kind of people tend to have that kind of moments of questioning life and existence, they may well come up with certain philosophical aspe...

Religion causes too much violence and is not needed in society.

MasterManav

In 1095, Pope Urban II said that God had come to him, and said that the Bible had a mistake and that it was okay to kill, just not to kill other Christians. Whereas the Bible said that killing anyone was wrong. "Whatsoever ye do unto the least of these, my brethren, ye do it unto Me." This means that it is God"s place to judge others not ours, for him to decide whether or not to use violence. Sometimes they refer to texts, such as the Old Testament or Bible, where their God has killed many for d...

AOW Debate (Shattered World)

theeetimdoherty

This is a war debate. You see this is my second one, and this one is unique because it is from a scenario I made. I will be playing as the People's Republic of Southern China. These are the rules: 1. If you take this debate, tell the name of your country, and tell the numbers of your armed forces for things like vehicles (aircraft, ships, tanks, armored cars), men, missiles, and hackers (Yes, certain countries have the ability to do cyberwarfare). You can not play as the People's Republic...

Different cultures can never be equal

Plato85
Hiu

The answer is in the question, they're different. I can accept that they can and should be equal under the law. I will argue that different cultures have different vices, virtues, and customs. We are all biased towards our own culture and therefore different cultures will never treat each other as equals. Also because different vices and virtues create different kinds of workers there will always be a wage gap....

Should people colonize Mars?

puns
binkshimself

Humans will remain humans no matter what planet. Before moving to another planet, lets look at our own first. People are dying, people are starving, we are running out of clean water and war is a big issue. It could be argued, if humanity was wiped out by a nuclear war, people on other planets would have a chance to survive. Would it really be worth it if they did? They would only hurt other planets and end up just like us. Despite this all, any expedition would have to fit the Coleman Sagen Equ...
