The Universe is deterministic

condeelmaster
spacetime

I really want to discuss about this because I'm not sure of my opinion. I think that the universe must be deterministic because of its excellent design and for the limits that existence itself has. However, if this is true, it means that we will never be free, which is really upsetting hahaha. To clarify some points: * It would be interesting to focus on the metaphysical implicancies of this issue and the relation with free will, religions, time-space composition and future prediction....

The Social Contract and Moral Obligations

PrefaceIt's been a sizeable amount of time since I last debated, and I really want to get back into it, esp. now that the campaign is over and things are settling down. This is one of two challenges I am issuing, and I think it should afford some interesting discussion. I find the topic to be cool, somewhat of a departure from a lot of the common topics used on DDO, and I think it will provide an basis for an engaging discourse! To accept, you must h...

Con will say whether he wants to show why my arguments don't work, or he could attempt to show the absence of God. Con can give an argument in Round 1. NOTE: Do NOT forfeit. If someone forfeits a debate, the debate will quit updating. If you do forfeit, the other person will automatically 'win'....

Theism offers a more likely context than atheism for affirming moral realism.

popculturepooka
Sargon

I thank Sargon agreeing to debate me on this topic. I shall be arguing that given moral realism theism is more likely than atheism. Or that theism makes "more sense" of moral realism than atheism does. My job is to argue that, yes, theism offer a more likely context in which to affirm moral realism and Con's job is to argue that, to the contrary, atheism offers a more likely context than theism in which to affirm moral realism. In short, this will be a mostly meta-ethical debate. [1]<...

Euthanasia should be available to everyone who is considering suicide.

philipisbad
Reformist

My position is that euthanasia should be available to anyone who wishes to kill themselves. I am not stating that everyone will have easy access to euthanasia like they have access to a can of Coke. There must be counselling, talking with the families, and a lot of time to reconsider the decision. This is important because the individual cannot be making this decision because of treatable mental health issue or a sudden whim of emotion. This must be a rational decision based on their convictio...
