"unlimited paradox" - an ever present unlimited force does not exist can the unlimited limit itself? if not, it is not unlimited. if so, it is not unlimited. thus, we can see by probing a few questions about what it means to be unlimited, that it does not really exist, at least in terms of being ever present....

Should Cryogenic Freezing be Humanism's ideological answer to death?

thehumanistpreacher
Wylted

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dN1Fp_H89k Above are my arguments laid out in video form. The Humanist ideology needs to adapt and develop. There needs to be a shift from the question of who has the burden of proof of what happens when you die? Whether or not it should be the responsibility of humanists or those with religious beliefs. A more positive question should be, "What is science's current answer to death?". The answer is clear, the solution even clearer. Cryogenic Freezing may soun...

I will be arguing as Pro. The first round is for acceptance, and we shall begin the discussion in round two.Personhood: The quality or condition of being an individual huma...

Statist Anti-Catholic Egalitarians Are not Consistent for Following William of Ockham

While William of Ockham was a devout Catholic who emphasized the virtue of poverty, it was this pope who reigned under extraordinary circumstances that he was punished. Furthermore, while William of Ockham was excommunicated himself, his philosophy was not condemned despite how he further insisted on separation...

Atheism says there is no God, therefore it is not possible to win Pascal's Wager.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
medv4380

I would like an atheist to argue that it is possible to win Pascal's Wager and remain an atheist at the same time, but it seems to me that an atheist would not argue this way as it allows for the possibility that God is there and atheism excludes that possibility.. A non-atheist can argue this debate against my position. Please give a sample argument in the comments before I allow you to accept this challenge. If you need a dictionary to define words or if you need a web page link to define o...
