TheMagi

The fine-tuning of the universe (by fine-tuning I mean that which involves strictly the different parameters and physical constants, not about designed life versus Darwinism) for the existence of intelligent life is often posited as a reason to infer a designer of the initial conditions of the univserse. The argument is as follows: P1: The fine-tuning of the universe is due to either physical necessity, chance, or design P2: The fine-tuning of the universe is not due to physical necessity...

Time is an intangible reality

No More than 100 words per round. Use your own thoughts and ideas as much as possible. Do not rely on third party referencing. No formal structure to this debate. Time just is. Humans have acquired the ability to measure and calibrate the duration of events. We regard this as the passage of time. But in reality time does not have passage. Nor does time necessitate the need to be observed or given structure or value. Time will always be. Because time just is. Time...

The single greatest mistake a man can make in life is getting married

Drake8595
BMHTheGreat

Relationships and marriages in America are in a disastrous state. It is a proven fact that the man will overwhelmingly lose in court even when he wants to the marriage to work out. The man stands to lose everything for doing nothing wrong. A man can live a much better life staying single and not giving a woman control in his life. Statistically it is the woman who cheats on the man and the man will lose financially in court as a result. Divorce, promiscuity, and infidelity are all at record high...

Save One Life? Or Save Three Lives?

mostlogical
PowerPikachu21

Should you rescue three people if it means one person will die? Or should you choose to rescue one person if it means three people will die? Here is a scenario, you are on a boat with no ladders, four people are going to drown unless you throw a life buoy, but you only have one life buoy! Should you throw it to one person, and let three drown? Or throw it to the group of three on the other side of the boat so that only one person drowns? I will argue that the life buoy should be thrown tow...
