The Problem of Hell Redux (2)

popculturepooka
KeytarHero

I thank KeytarHero for agreeing to debate this with me. IntroductionI have already done two debates on this subject but I hope to tackle this issue yet again. [1][2]To reiterate, my position is that the existence of hell - conceived of as eternal, conscious torment (e.g. the "traditional" doctrine of hell) - is, in all likelihood, incompatible with the existence of a God who is conceived of...

something can not be true and false at the same time.

You being the con will clearly be unable to argue against the statement that - something can not be true and false at the see time....

Can humans honestly understand the concept of nothing?

Logicality1
leedle

I honestly do not believe humans can understand nothing. Even if you assume that a space is empty, there is always a force affecting it in our minds. For example, if you imagine a black space in your head, there will always be a force, color, or change in that space, making the concept of nothing irrelevant, as there is always something effecting it. Take zero for example, the best example we have as a concept of nothing. Since numbers are a concept in general, and since zero is such an oddity e...

It's inhumane for someone to kill a living being when it has the potential for life and so much more, especially as the baby has had no chance to experience the joys of life. It is no different to murder....
