Divinity is real in some form

ChosenWolff
Raymond_Reddington

This is a continuation of another debate, where me and Raymond disagreed on the structure. I will be arguing that divinity is real. Note, this is a philosophy debate, and not a religious one. I intend on using the stoic argument for the existence of god, as it has been accepted by atheists, scientists, and the religious alike, and will keep this from turning into a "religion vs atheism" debate. This is a metaphysics debate, and should be argued from a secular POV, and from scratch. Argument...

The purpose of all things in motion is to seek balance

captmurk
B0NEDUDE

I am arguing that anything in motion is ultimately seeking balance. In other words, balance is the purpose, or end game, of all movement. I view the Universe as a strictly physical Universe consisting of opposites (for every entity that exists, an equal yet opposite entity also exits). We can briefly debate my view of the Universe in the first round if you choose. I'm not big on "debate rules", so Con can use the rounds however he or she pleases. The BOP is on me to prove that all things in moti...

Can There Be Morality Without God?

aleph_naught
Benshapiro

By morality without God, I mean some moral reality in the absence of a deity. In other words, is there any conflict in atheism and moral realism? And if there is, is it one of stark inconsistency, or instead of probabilistic tension? God will be understood as the god of orthodox monotheism, the all-powerful, benevolent creator and sustainer of the universe. Or, alternatively, the greatest being of Anselmian theology. If my opponent has a slightly different (preferably less restrictive) defini...

Abortion is morally permissible within 1st trimester

Vere_Mendacium
JasperFrancisShickadance

Abortion is morally permissible within the 1st trimester, and should not require the pretext of a rape, incest, or medical complication to validate it as such. While it should require the consent of both 'parents' (in my opinion), we will not discuss this point in addition. This debate will center only on the morality of abortion within the period between conception and the 1st trimester. This time period allows for an unknowingly pregnant mother time to notice the pregnancy through lack of a me...
