Resolved: that there are moral absolutes.

Happyreclusive
Valladarex

I set out to prove that there are moral absolutes. I"ll use "moral" and "ethical" synonymously, choosing one over the other as style dictates. By "absolute," I mean something is that true in all possible worlds, necessarily true, and true in all situations. For example, the judgment "lying is wrong" is necessarily true and there is no circumstance when lying is right."My arguments are Kantian, so my opponent...

If there is no empirical evidence of any given thing, can you say it exists?

MWysocki

To assume something exists without empirical evidence is purely illogical. If you could accept a belief in something without evidence, you could believe any possibility. You could assert that there is a large dog floating in the sky striking down those that displease it, and think it true. However, it could be said that just because you can't prove something doesn't mean it's been disproved. This being true, the converse is also true, you can't believe in something because of a lack of evidence....

Many of there therioes we see today...are indeed found in the bible...The Bible states that God created life according to kinds(Genesis 1:24) how God refers to "kinds" agrees with the scientific observations.."THERE ARE HORIZONTAL GENETIC BOUNDARIES BEYOND WHICH LIFE CANNOT VARY"..dogs produce dogs...roses produce roses and so on...WE DON'T SEE ONE "KIND" EVOLVING INTO ANOTHER "KIND" AS EVOLUTION SUPPOSES why are we no longer evolving or anything in that matter.

Both sides have agreed on a definition of romantic love. Romantic love is a love for another person that involves intimacy, attachment, unconditional love and exhilarating feelings of happiness. 2.

Is State Execution murder?

ooberman
JustinAMoffatt

The execution of a criminal is murder. It is premeditated, the victim is selected and unable to defend him or herself, and despite society agreeing to the murder, it is murder nonetheless. First, let's be clear that I am not defining murder as "illegal killing according to state laws" since this is arbitrary. Murder must mean, if it means anything, the killing of a person who need not be killed, but is still killed with intent. Yes, this means people killed in war as "collateral da...

Should Sloths be able to eat leaves?

IReason
Defro

I should be able to eat leaves when I please; mainly because I believe in free opportunity. Restricting my liberty is immoral! I love all women and men! Tall or Short! I believe in the right for liberty and the pursuit of happiness! I also believe that we should change the way government works to help the people and by the consent of the people. I also want my little sloth babies to eat as well......
