This House Asserts That Ontology Necessitates God!

Ajabi
RoyLatham

Shalom Aleichem! The idea of this debate started with me contacting Roy for a debate. Given a list of topics he believed that the best topic to discuss is the Ontological Argument. I believe I should mention the Spirit of the Motion is whether the study of Being, with relation to the studies of Ideas can make God a necessary conception. There are some rules which both parties must accept: 1. The first round for Roy is acceptance only, and to share any pleasantries. He accepts the defin...

Resolution:The argument "I think, therefore I am" fails to prove its conclusion. Definitions:I don't think either of us intend to play the semantics game in this debate, so I'll keep these general.I: The self, one's conciousness

Psychological Egoism

MyDinosaurHands
YYW

Definition:"Psychological egoism is the thesis that we are always deep down motivated by what we perceive to be in our own self-interest." I will be defending this thesis, and my opponent's objective should be to show that there are instances where a person acts with with purely altruistic motives. First Round will be for Acceptance. Any questions, please ask in the comments before accepting. Any confusion that arises that could've been avoided with a simple qu...

God Can Gain Knowledge While Being Omniscient

Rational_Thinker9119
zmikecuber

The burden of proof will be shared. I will be arguing that there is no explicit contradiction in God gaining knowledge while still being omniscient by definition, like some may think. My opponent will argue it is a contradiction for God to gain knowledge if he is omniscient, because if God knows all there is to know already, then he cannot know more. God For...

xXCryptoXx
Domr

FrameworkThis is a debate about God, and the concept of foreknowledge and how it relates to free will. I will be defending that free will and omniscience are compatible, that is that they can both exist without contradiction. My opponent will be arguing they are incompatible, that is that they cannot both exist without contradiction. My opponent will have the burden of proof in this debate since he is...

God loves you.

LifeMeansGodIsGood
garywest22

God loves you. He loves you so much that even if you hate Him and show that hatred by saying He is not there, being willfully ignorant of His love, He still gave His Son to die in your place. As the Son of God, Jesus is God (if a man has a son, that son is human, God's Son is God) He proved God's love for you in dying in your place. You are the one who deserves to die (the same as me and everybody else) but God Himself took your death so that He can be satisfied that the death you owe for y...

A.I. of sufficient intelligence deserves Personhood

blackkid
happybook

First round is acceptance. Basis & Definitions: We will presume that the entity's nature itself does not matter. The question is essentially whether a being that functions as a human would fully entitled to emotions, mental capabilities, and intelligence should be considered a "Person". The standard of machinery still is present so the object still requires initial input unlike biological systems but beyond that input can assess within it's parameters which is assumed to be equivalent to a hu...
