Does an objective secular morality exist?

Samcoder1
SJM

I would like to extend my thanks to whoever accepts this debate. For a long time people have asserted that an objective morality only exists in religion, or that morality itself is a relative thing. I would like to argue that this is not the case, and an objective morality can be established through science and reason. First round is acceptance.No trolling please.I'm looking for a good debate, so good luck! ...

Life and the Universe were Created

Iamsmarter
Willows

I find it an inherent truth that life and the universe were created. Of course this is a cyclic argument and thus will not serve as the substance of my reasoning. I will argue that existence is an illusion, merely a combination of sensory inputs and processing of those inputs. However, what is not deniable is the existence of something. I mean something in the most ambiguous sense possible. There is something either "out there" or "in here," i.e. outside of the Universe or within our mind. I...

Stage 1: a portal entrance on winter rose mountain, into the dark of snake maze. no one has ever died in snake maze, altough many have come close to death at the silent white and black snakes hiding in the noises of falling winter rose leafs, slithering in darkness of the maze. Stage 2. A microscopic lightning strike from the center of a spider trofy. Statue columbs of fearful eyed snakes in a tunnel with a promising light of a cave exit at its end, but caught in a giant spiders sticky web,...

Does a god exist?

PowerPikachu21
Cobalt

I'm making yet another "Does God exist" debate. This time, however, I'll let my opponent define the term "god".Rules:1) I'm suspecting another forfeit glitch (My smash bros debate, and my Tic-Tac-Toe debate are currently frozen), so please, do NOT time out.2) Burden of Proof will be on Pro. I'll just have to show that their arguments are invalid.3) Kritiks will be allowed.4) Pro needs to source their definition of "god". The definit...

Jesus was a dangerous, deranged individual

Blueberry_Goose
brontoraptor

Today, Jesus is often depicted as the personification of the perfect human being in western society. He is celebrated as an individual we should all aspire to become more like, since he was apparently an advocate for all humankind and requested a more peaceful world from those he came in contact with. But if you look closely at his depiction in the now-highly edited and notoriously contradictory New Testament, you can detect the real character of Jesus, by what he said, how he acted, and what he...

How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
Usertitle

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...
