The infinite regress problem exists in objective morality only

000ike
Polaris

Resolution clarification: When attempting to justify objective moral statements one provides reasons in order to satisfy the necessity for warrant. However, those reasons themselves require reasons, and as do those reasons, continuing ad infinitum. This isn't just an infinite regress, but it becomes a vicious infinite regress. Con will argue that this problem is not unique to objective morality, it exists for subjective moral statements as well. I will argue that t...

Morals are biased and heavily influenced by the opinion of the majority.

purplesnower
Emilrose

I wish the contender good luck. (This is more of a debate on philosophical standpoints rather than raw facts and evidence.)I believe that morals are biased and are based completely on a person's own definition of good and bad. Let's say that I am a robber who has recently stolen another's personal property. If I were to have stolen something famous, such as the mona lisa, and were to have escaped, I would label said situation as favorable. According to the Merriam Webst...

Ethics of Mass Effect #1 - The Rachni

Zaradi
John_Royals

I decided to start this, much in the same line of bsh1's Star Trek debates, to start a series of debates about Mass Effect. I love Mass Effect not only because of the rich storyline but also because of the tough ethical questions and dilemmas that the game forces you to face down and confront. This debate series is intended to replicate those questions and debate about the proper course of action between the two options that the game presents to you.
