It is not possible to have objective moral standards without God.

AlexC1999
Telsa

Throughout history many moral systems have existed. Many, but not all, of these systems have been based on the idea of a God. As western society increasingly rejects God and religion, especially in places such as Europe, new moral ideas without emphasis on the existence of a creator have emerged. Many view this as a way to unshackle ourselves from ancient moral systems that often depend on books containing moral advice from cultures with very different standards to our own. However many do not r...

Abortion Is Prima Facie Morally Wrong

Freeman
JoshBrahm

Allow me to begin by saying how pleased I am to be debating Josh Brahm. I'm sure that many of you will never get to read a more powerful case for the pro-life position than the case you will read in the course of this debate. And I only hope that I can do as well while I proceed to defend the pro-choice position. In this debate I'm going to argue that abortion is not morally reprehensible and should not be illegal, given the actual qualities that a human fetus possesses. Unlike a person, a f...

God exists.

Ockham
thelogicalumbrella

The resolution is that God exists. Pro will be arguing that God exists, while Con will be arguing that Pro has not established that God exists. By accepting this debate, Pro agrees that they have the burden of proof to establish that it is objectively more likely than not that God exists. The rules for assessing this are the standard rules of logic, including the rules of deductive and inductive inference. For example, a deductive argument must be deductively valid and have premises that we h...

Is the big bang theory real

The Big Bang theory is not real. God is real and he created the earth that we are living on today. The Big Bang Theory is not real because of the complexity of life. Look at plants, animals, microscopic organisms, planets, and humans. All of these amazing things that are here can't just be a probability. There had to be someone who designed all of the amazing things that we have today. And if the Big Bang theory were true, then why aren't there explosions happening all the time? And if the law o...

is God real?

jackgilbert
tickertape

God is real. If God did not create the earth then who did? There is simply no theory or belief that answers this question. Lets take a look at some of the other common beliefs for how the world was created. Lets start with the big bang theory. This theory states that the world exploded into existence. This theory goes against two scientific laws. The law of conservation of energy, and the law of conservation of mass. It goes against the law of conservation of energy because energy cannot be crea...

Can you prove anything.

Can anyone ever be objectively certain of anything other than their own awareness, whatever awareness actually is? I say no, but hey maybe that's because I'm just a figment of your imagination....

There is no objective morality

AmericanNick
PointyDelta

In order for an objective morality to be established, it would need to be based on objective data. Since all data concerning morality is based on individual feeling, there is no objective data, thus there is no objective morality....
