There is no compelling reason to believe that objective moral facts exist.

Cody_Franklin
headphonegut

Introduction The only definition necessary is of "objective moral fact": a moral truth (e.g. "human life is morally valuable", "theft is wrong", etc. which is independent of the human mind and is categorically binding. An example of an objective non-moral fact is the equation 2 + 2 = 4. Even if there are no minds around to grasp...

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

Makaveli83
mfigurski80

A far superior individual stated something cannot be true and false at the same time. A truth is a truth. A falsity is a falsity. Seeing as I clearly have a low iq I must agree with this as my opinion is merely an opinion. The individual was clearly telling the truth so it must be impossible to disagree with this statement. 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....

GOD is not only a Religion

John_C_1812
MAD3

GOD is not just a word with a Religion ownership it is an axiom of numbers written down in a way that produces a result. The numbers are 400, 11, and 500, G, O, and D when placed in the axiom the numbers produce a sum, 89. The axiom has many uses that are not restricted to religion. Con will explain how GOD has only religious meaning while fact clearly shows numerical purpose outside of religion.

Logic should not be trusted.

MouthWash
InquireTruth

First of all, I assert that even the most basic axiom could be false, since there could be some massive hole in it that our potentially defective brains cannot realize. Attempts to render logic relevant (such as Occam's Razor) fail because they are presupposed on the validity of axioms. Whoever accepts this debate must refute this position (first round will be refutation, not acceptance).Puppies!...

On balance, Collectivism is preferable to Individualism

1. First round for acceptance 2. No new arguments in the final round 3. This debate should be impossible to accept. Finding a way to accept without permission will result in an automatic loss for Con. If you would like to accept, please say so in the comments section, and I will challenge you when I feel like it. 4. By accepting the debate, Con agrees to the following definitions... >> Collectivism- the philosophy that the interests of society as a whole should be considered ethicall...

Does God exist ?

Illegalcombatant
awatkins69

Definition of God - Its existence is uncaused, morally good, all powerful, all knowing, personal, the prime/first mover. PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE ACCEPTING DEBATE BURDEN OF PROOF Both sides of this debate have a burden to carry I as the CON have to try and prove that God probably doesn't exist or at the very least that Gods non existence is more likely that its existence. My opponent as the PRO will try and prove that God probably does exist, or at the very least that Gods existenc...

Compatabilism is a flawed philosophical doctrine.

Danielle
Kinesis

Many thanks in advance to whomever accepts this debate.I originally sent this challenge to Reasoning; however, like most people on this site, he declined my direct challenge. I don't see why considering not only is he a vehement Compatibilist, but so are some of the most brilliant philosophers in the world today. There is plenty of pro-Compatibilist information for my future opponent to steal from the internet, I can assure you. In fact it is the most popular position, so I will...

We're looking forward to an excellent debate.Due to a recent experience of mine with receiving almost no votes on a high-quality debate, I have decided to make this a judge-only debate. Judges were selected based on their impartiality and on the fact that they were recently a...

There exists absolute truth.

DrSenelCoolidge
Ockham

I believe that absolute truth exists. Here is what I define as absolute truth: Absolute truth is all absolute, being correct in every context of reality, and it is a truth that depends on its own truthfulness for being valid. As such, this truth is self-reliant for its validity. This truth then proves itself as valid. Also, absolute truth is composed of aspects, each aspect being an essential ingredient for absolute truth. These aspects include syntactic and state-wise components, which...
