The Existence of Time Travel Would Invalidate Free Will

Conspiracyrisk
Aguilajoyce

Resolution: The existence of time travel would invalidate free will. I am pro, which means that I will argue the resolution is true. Con must argue that the existence of time travel would not invalidate free will. Round 1 is acceptance only. Other than that, there is no debate structure, but it should be remembered that making new arguments in the last round is generally frowned upon. Time Travel - the movement of persons to a different point in time, be it in the future or past. Free...

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
XkriticalninjaX

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...

It is better to be a realist than a dreamer?

"There are dreamers and there are realists in this world. You would think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists but... more often than not, the opposite is true. You see the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists... well, without the...

Life Philosophy Debate 2

TheRussian
Grovenshar

I am in a bit of a philosophical mood and was hoping to argue something deep and thought-provoking. The two subjects currently on my mind are Free Will (I am Con) and Objective Morality (I am Con). Feel free to accept if you have a contrary opinion on either topic and would like to argue it. If you have another philosophical debate on your mind, feel free to post in the comments and I'll gladly consider something new. In fact, I'd rather debate something new as I think I've made up my mind on th...

SkyLeach

I propose that Latin curses are very much real. There's substantial evidence that proves this, all throughout history, curses are mentioned. They are dismissed as "coincidence" or "bad luck", but they are real...

can racial discrimination be ok?

0cards0
DebaterGood

there is a new ride sharing app for women that dont feel comfortable with male drivers, i think its ok, but if we switch it with race then it doesnt sound ok, from a business point of view it is valid to discriminate based on job qualifications, so if the app is for women & if they dont feel comfortable with male drivers then its a valid justification to not hire man, but if white people would feel uncomfortable with black drivers based on the claim that most offenders of inter-racial crimes bet...

Can we know anything for certain?

JoaquinBarzi
vi_spex

We use logic to deductively determine the truth value or soundness of arguments. But even logic rests on axiomatic principles suchs as the identity and non-contradiction principle. If we were to ever doubt of them, what else could we use to determine their veracity? Would we be left with utter uncertainty? Of course i am not sold on the con argument, i am just defending it for the sake of debate, if there is any point in debating at all. I am new to this site, so if anyone wants to join th...
