Open to any. All rounds cross examination. I noticed that people here are pseudo-philosophers. When examined they all fold like little chairs. They evade questions like plagues and so on....

God Opposes Abortion

elvroin_vonn_trazem

As I've indicated elsewhere, almost all the foundations anti-abortion arguments are badly flawed. One such foundation is the notion that God has a negative opinion of abortion. Sure, the Bible and other religious works make various claims that can be interpreted as opposing abortion. But God didn't sit down and write any of those religious works. Humans did. And humans are known to be able to tell lies to benefit themselves. If this Challenge is accepted, then, based on the title of this D...

Consciousness is non-physical, and self-aware.

Anger can be a good moral motivation

philosophystudent231
swagner713

Aristotle argues that there are two kinds of virtues, those that are taught and those that are learned through habit. He seeks to show that through our habits we devlope our characters. He believes we must seek out a middle ground in all virtues, as it is the nature of things to be destroyed by defect or excess. Anger, as a virtue, must also have a middle ground, meaning that it too can be good. 1) Virtue can be either intellectual or moral in nature, with the intellectual being developed thro...
