The Plantingan Modal Ontological Argument is sound

orangutan
Philocat

Resolved: The Plantingan Modal Ontological Argument (or a logically equivalent formulation) is sound.This is a challenge to Philocat.The burden of proof is on Pro to show that his argument is sound.Pro will make his presentation in the first round. Pro will waive his last round. The debate will last four rounds.Sources are fine as long as they are properly cited. TinyURL links do not count as sources.

The Reverse Modal Ontological Argument Refutes God

Envisage
Mhykiel

Details:I am playing devil's advocate in this debate - since my position is that neither argument actually can even hope to be demonstrated to be sound. Leave a message if you wish to accept. Messaging that you are "unable to accept due to your age criteria, etc." clearly demonstrates you have not read the rules, and thus will be unlikely to receive the cha...

Any experiment could theoretically be replicated if it had identical environments and the outcome could be predicted as it would have to be identical. Assuming the big bang is the correct theory for the origin of everything, then if t...

I really hope this debate gets good votes-or votes at all since it will be a bit philosophically challenging. Resolution: This House Supports Epistemological Nihilism! For this debate "epistemol...
