Moral codes from God are subjective.

Burls

I will be arguing the Pro position in this debate. Any moral code claimed to be given from God is entirely subjective, prone to be erroneous and, therefore, should be considered unreliable as a moral standard. Round 1 - Acceptance. Rounds 2 and 3 - Arguments and rebuttals. Round 4 - Final rebuttal/closing argument. Best of Luck!...

Life Philosophy Debate 2

TheRussian
Grovenshar

I am in a bit of a philosophical mood and was hoping to argue something deep and thought-provoking. The two subjects currently on my mind are Free Will (I am Con) and Objective Morality (I am Con). Feel free to accept if you have a contrary opinion on either topic and would like to argue it. If you have another philosophical debate on your mind, feel free to post in the comments and I'll gladly consider something new. In fact, I'd rather debate something new as I think I've made up my mind on th...

God Debate Switch-a-roo

Bound_Up

Con-- Me, I am christian and will argue that god DOESN'T exist. Pro-- You, you must be atheist and will argue that god DOES exist. The purpose is that after I calmed my christian bloodlust against atheism in my first month here i got bored of the god debates that take up about one-fifth to one-seventh of our beloved site. So i want to spice it up a bit. And the christian god as described in the bible (for standard lets use the KJV) is the god we are arguing about existing. I have a...

Can we know anything for certain?

JoaquinBarzi
vi_spex

We use logic to deductively determine the truth value or soundness of arguments. But even logic rests on axiomatic principles suchs as the identity and non-contradiction principle. If we were to ever doubt of them, what else could we use to determine their veracity? Would we be left with utter uncertainty? Of course i am not sold on the con argument, i am just defending it for the sake of debate, if there is any point in debating at all. I am new to this site, so if anyone wants to join th...

In determining anything to be true do we use faith whatsoever?

jms020999

Faith is the excuse people use for believing something when they don't have a good reason.-Matt Dilahunty When we go about our lives we tend to think that using faith ever is "okay" or rational or acceptable. However you want to say it under NO circumstances ever using faith is the most rational reason in determining something to be true. Whether determining your own personal religious view or if you are deciding who to trust with a prized possession of yours faith is the most irrational way t...

Physicalism is improbable

Romanii
BlueDreams

Thanks to Sargon for proposing this topic. Standard DDO rules apply -- first round for acceptance, no new arguments or rebuttals in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc, etc etc. I have the burden of proof in this debate to show that Physicalism is improbable. The definition of Physicalism can be found here -- http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/physicalism/ I look forward to an interesting debate!...
