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......

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...

God Opposes Abortion

elvroin_vonn_trazem
JayWhip

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...

A New Radical Justice System

RationalMadman
Beginner

When I was a little boy, say five years old, I would be what most would consider a highly philosophically-minded child. When my teacher told me that I should put my hand up to ask a question I asked her why, when she got annoyed she would just tell me to shut up and sit down (in kinder words than the ones I proposed). However, I never understood the rule, nor did I feel the need to obey it... Because being shut up and told to sit down isn't truly terrifying. On the other hand, if I had been...

Bible is more credible

DXJBOOMSTER74
FuzzyCatPotato

The Bible is hands down more credible then Darwin's books of theories. Now I'm not saying that Charles' books are not good for observing the difference in species of birds and how they have adapted to certain areas with specific beaks for an example. But if you are looking at historically accurate The Bible hands down wins the fact race, as being that so many pieces of the Bible have been confirmed in other writing from ancient Rome of which have 100% guaranteed the historical accuracy. Now it a...

You should follow Stoic principles.

Tim1632
ehorton

Stoic doctrine states that we should detach ourselves from our emotions and only worry about what we can control. If we follow this school of thought we will not waste our time on things that are futile, but only worry about that things that we have the capacity to control ourselves. By doing this we will live a better life because we will no longer waste time on what is out of our control, and therefore we will use our time concentrating on what we can, which will lead to better use of our time...

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...
