Pandavas were the rightful heirs to the throne of Hastinapur

Hello!Through this debate, I wish to challenge the highly decorated belief that the Pandavas were the rightful heirs to the throne of Hastinapur. I am of the opinion that the Kauravas instead were the ones who deserved to rule the throne.It is my simple argument that once you renounce any power/authority/status, you lose all rights to command any sort of control over it. Building on the aforementioned argument, I believe that when Pandu r...

The Universe is deterministic

condeelmaster
spacetime

I really want to discuss about this because I'm not sure of my opinion. I think that the universe must be deterministic because of its excellent design and for the limits that existence itself has. However, if this is true, it means that we will never be free, which is really upsetting hahaha. To clarify some points: * It would be interesting to focus on the metaphysical implicancies of this issue and the relation with free will, religions, time-space composition and future prediction....

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!...

A man should be able to relinquish all responsibility for an unborn child.

toolpot462
Cometflash

My full resolution is as such: a man should be able to relinquish all responsibility for an unborn child as long as a woman can essentially do the same by aborting it. If a woman finds out that she is pregnant, she has the only say in whether she gets an abortion or not (as long as it's legal). If the man doesn't want to have the child, but the woman does, he's out of luck; he can either stay with the mother and child, or leave and pay child support. Either way, he has some sort of legal res...

Abortion Is Morally Permissible

Freeman
Trent_H

I want to begin by saying how pleased I am to debate Trent on this most important of moral issues. Like my opponent, I have a deep interest in bioethics. So I'm very much looking forward to discussing the philosophical aspects of abortion with such a capable and passionate contender. In this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no good reasons to think that abortion is morally wrong. And secondly, there are good reasons to think that abortion is morally permissib...

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...
