There is no objective basis for moralatiy

AGluttonousAscetic
b.fields

My position is that there is not an objective basis for morality; that the act of judging or labeling something (and action, thought, etc.) as either moral or immoral is based on non-objective sources. For this debate, the term "objective" will have the definition found in the Merriam-Webster dictionary: of, relating to, or being an object, phenomenon, or condition in the realm of sensible experience independent of individual thought and perceptible by all observers: having reality independen...

The desire to succeed makes us compromise with moral values.

Fawwaz.Tasneem
Fawwaz

First of all let us try to understand the meaning of moral values. Moral Values are the rules and regulations which we follow to earn our dignity and respect in the society and moreover to be a good human being. The phrase "makes you compromise with moral values" in the sense is that we have to sacrifice our moral values in order to gain success but the thing is that by sacrificing our moral values it is not possible to gain success permanently. The reason is that real success is not present in...

If A Tree Fell In A Forrest With No One Around To Hear It, It Would Still Make A Sound

Definition of sound: vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard when they reach a person's or animal's ear. No need to define anything else. I'm opening this back up since there was some confusion in my last attempt. This is meant to be short and fun, but I also want it to be a real debate because it is an interesting metaphysical question. You can accept and then I'll get right into it....

This House Asserts That Ontology Necessitates God!

Ajabi
RoyLatham

Shalom Aleichem! The idea of this debate started with me contacting Roy for a debate. Given a list of topics he believed that the best topic to discuss is the Ontological Argument. I believe I should mention the Spirit of the Motion is whether the study of Being, with relation to the studies of Ideas can make God a necessary conception. There are some rules which both parties must accept: 1. The first round for Roy is acceptance only, and to share any pleasantries. He accepts the defin...
