The Problem of Suffering

theodebater42
tfroitz1

I maintain that the existence of suffering does not disprove the existence of an all loving, all powerful, and all knowing God. I will defend this claim by proposing a version of the free will defense, namely that it is unjust for God to force people to be in union with Him in heaven and therefore He must allow people to journey towards a relation with Him. This free journey though allows for people to deviate and therefore commit actions that result in suffering. More can be said about all of t...

Is Morality Relative?

TouchtheSky
Leaning

I have been busy this past couple of days with exams, but I still want to be doing some brief debates, so I'm putting a debate up with a shorter character limit (4000 words). The topic of this debate will be the question of, 'Is Morality Relative?'. This is the definition I'd like to propose for 'moral relativism': The philosophized notion that right and wrong are not absolute values, but are personalized according to the individual and his or her circumstances or cultural orientation. It...

There is only two gender (male and female)

ZEDX
programram

Dear debaters, I believe that there are only 2 genders. The definition of gender on google is: "the state of being male or female" and dictionary.com defines gender as: "associated with natural distinctions of sex." and defines sex as: "either of the two main categories (male and female)" So off of dictionary.com and Google, both very reliable sources, say that there is only male or female. In addition, it is impossible to be transgender as you are born a certain gender and you can't do anythin...

Animal Ethics - Is eating animals wrong?

chatterbears
Dinis

I base my moral foundation on something similar to Sam Harris, which is the consideration of the well-being of conscious creatures. This includes humans and animals. But I'd also say it is impossible to accept these 3 moral pillars while simultaneously eating animals. And these 3 pillars are: Empathy, compassion and ethical consistency. Empathy refers more generally to our ability to take the perspective of and feel the emotions of another living being. Compassion is when those feelings and...
