Pascals wager


I see your last debate about pascals wager did not go as intended. I was interested in the topic until I read your opponents opinions. So I would like to converse this topic with you. I will argue for pascals wager being theoretically acceptable. I read (and wish you would like to still hold your position against/con of the debate) that you think pascals wager is false or non-sensible. I hope you still wish to debate from your past position. The way I understand pascals wager is if a belie...

God Debate Switch-a-roo


Con-- Me, I am christian and will argue that god DOESN'T exist. Pro-- You, you must be atheist and will argue that god DOES exist. The purpose is that after I calmed my christian bloodlust against atheism in my first month here i got bored of the god debates that take up about one-fifth to one-seventh of our beloved site. So i want to spice it up a bit. And the christian god as described in the bible (for standard lets use the KJV) is the god we are arguing about existing. I have a...

Can we know anything for certain?


We use logic to deductively determine the truth value or soundness of arguments. But even logic rests on axiomatic principles suchs as the identity and non-contradiction principle. If we were to ever doubt of them, what else could we use to determine their veracity? Would we be left with utter uncertainty? Of course i am not sold on the con argument, i am just defending it for the sake of debate, if there is any point in debating at all. I am new to this site, so if anyone wants to join th...

Darwin's Theory of Changing Species


The more I think about it the more illogical I think it is. All of Darwin's theories focus on the changing of species. So I say "Where is the evidence?"

Faith is the excuse people use for believing something when they don't have a good reason.-Matt Dilahunty When we go about our lives we tend to think that using faith ever is "okay" or rational or acceptable. However you want to say it under NO circumstances ever using faith is the most rational reason in determining something to be true. Whether determining your own personal religious view or if you are deciding who to trust with a prized possession of yours faith is the most irrational way t...

Capitalism is Superior to Socialism


Which system is superior: capitalism or socialism?I propose that capitalism is the only moral system, since it is the only system firmly grounded in the concept of individual rights. Socialism, on the other hand, is based on forced cooperation and the violation of individual freedoms.To understand what these rights entail, we must ask ourselves: what are rights? To answer this question, we must first ask, what is man? What is his nature?Man's Nature, Individualism, and Rights:Man is a rational a...
