The Argument from Logic

DakotaKrafick

I thank DakotaKrafick for being a willing and eager participant in this debate on God's existence. I will be using a less commonly used argument for God's existence; Con (DakotaKrafick) will be arguing against it. My burden of proof is to show that the argument I propound is sound; Con's burden of proof is to show that it is not.By "logic" I simply mean the laws of logic such as the law of non-contradiction, law of identity, and the law of the excluded middle.<...

Human beings are superior to animals

AnthonyH
ConservativeDialectic

Humanity in general has often struck me as being incredibly arrogant in almost everything we do. We assume our intelligence and ingenuity gives us the right to meddle with anything and everything that's within our grasp. We have this elevated view of ourselves in regard to nature. This notion that we have surpassed the lowly beast and are inherently "better", superior creatures that can lord over nature as we see fit. However, take the human being out of an ecosystem and nature thrives. Take...

What would happen if Pinocchio said, "My nose will now grow"?

Mr.Infidel
socialpinko

I affirm that if Pinocchio said, "My nose will now grow" his nose will more than likely grow. Pinocchio is a fictional character with a nose that will grow every time he lies. Consider the premise: If Pinocchio lies, then his nose will grow. Pinocchio lies. Therefore, his nose will grow. If Pinocchio tells the truth, then his nose will

God DOES exits, but not in the way you think it does

Smerdyakov
Ali1

Hello my friends! This statement should be a surprise, taking into account that it comes from an agnostic. Do I believe in an anthropomorphic, sentimental being who created us all out of benevolence? No. But things get deeper. Although I currently have a PhD in Algebraic Topology philosophy always fascinated me as well. Through many years of intense research and thought I found my Holy Grail - positivism. But not in the sense of baroque positivism, oh no, something MUCH MUCH better came to my...

God exists.

Ockham
BrianCBiggs

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...
