Free Will is Real and Compatible with Determinism

AtheistExile
omelet

Determinism Versus Free Will: The Difference is Options In the determinism versus free will debate, determinists believe causality and choice are mutually exclusive – while compatibilists believe they are intimately intertwined. I will attempt to present a rational argument for my particular brand of compatibilism. Mine is a unique (I can't find my central tenet repeated by anybody else on the Internet) and forceful argument that explains how free will is compatible with determinism without c...

Evolution should not be taught as a fact in American public schools.

Okay, I think that Darwin's Theory of Evolution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_Evolution) should not be taught as absolute, factual science in American public schools. To start with, because no reason has been given as to why it should be taught, I will say that when you have no reason to teach something in a public school, it should not be taught....

Pro needs to present one or more of these arguments to fulfill their BoP to demonstrate the notion of intelligent design. The format is reversed, since the accepting party has the burden of proof, therefore: 10,000 Words, 72 hours. Rou...

The human eye evolved.

Spiral
Ironduke

Thanks to my opponent if he accepts, not sure if this is the evolution debate you wanted, though you did state the complexity of the eye as an indication of an intelligent designer. Next one can be your choosing. ;) Essentially I will show that the eye evolved, using the human eye, and eyes found in nature in general, to show the stages of development and how relatively easily it occurs. I assert that an Intelligent Designer, by definition, would not incorporate flaws into a system, as t...
