Free Will does not exist.

Thoht

Happy to think with you today. Format: R1: State your opinion R2: Rebut Opponent's Position (Address Rebuttal if you'd like) R3: Address Rebuttals and Conclude. As this is a topic that evidence is lacking in to some extent, I feel 3 rounds of 10k characters is more than sufficient. Most of the arguments on my side are deductive, and I have no evidence for anything outside my deductions. From the materials I've studied thus far, I cannot convince myself that Free Will exists in the...

Ethical consistency leads to veganism

Step 1: Why do you eat animals? Step 2: You have given a reason. Let's label this, 'Reason A'. Example: 'Reason A' could be, "because I like the taste" Step 3: You have used 'Reason A' to justify your action. In this case, your action is 'eating animals'. You believe that eating animals is morally acceptable, based on 'Reason A'.<...

Nothing Can't Exist.

QuestionAQuestion
Soriak

Can nothing exist? Well, isn't nothing in itself something? Most define nothing as a space with literally NOTHING. Let me ask you this, isn't space something? One may say the space between atoms is nothing, except that space is something. Why must it have a physical and intractable appearance to be considered something? Gravity, sound, wavelengths, none of them have a physical appearance we can touch, yet they're there. They ARE something. Nothing and something contradict each other so both can'...

Is Debate Effective For Solving Issues

Lizard3eyes
DemosthenesNow

Frankly I hope to lose this debate, but I will argue it to the best of my ability. Debate has been used all throughout history to address issues ranging from comical topics to life changing ones. But has it actually solved the issues addressed in any given debate? And if it has, was that the most effective way to find the given solution? I will be arguing that debate often does not lead to solutions to problems addressed in said debate and any solutions found due to debate could have been found...

Free Will is Reasonable

theodebater42
philochristos

I will define free will as the ability to have chosen otherwise within the same given circumstances. I am arguing that belief in free will is reasonable. Our experience of our willing seems to indicate that we have free will. The typical arguments against free will are flawed and are less convincing than the evident experience that we have free will. Con side will have to give an overwhelming argument for why determinism is more plausible than free will....
