Does God Exist?

Thomistic_Calvinist
Vict0rian

The question of the existence of God is a highly contentious one and deserves the utmost consideration from any person concerned with the truth. I will be using three arguments for the existence of God: 1. The Argument from Motion 2. The Argument from Divine Governance (Teleology) 3. The Argument from Substance Dualism Before we begin, it will be useful to define the sort of Theism I am advocating for. I am advocating for classical theism in the sense advocated by Aquinas and not the Neo...

Life is pointless.

Life means something to you until you die, and, depending on what you leave behind, maybe to beings in the future. But eventually, you will die, they will die, our planet will die, our species will die. And you were here for nothing. So make of life what you will, because it doesn't matter anyway....

I lifted this from a Cadillac Owner's Manual

The Penalty of Leadership (old Cadillac ad) "In every field of human endeavor, he that is first must perpetually live in the white light of publicity. Whether the leadership be vested in a man or in a manufactured product, emulation and envy are ever at work. In art, in literature, in music, in industry, the reward and the punishment are always the same. The reward is widespread recognition; the punishment, fierce denial and detraction. When a man's work becomes the standard for the whole world...

Everyone is actually lonely

In the end, all of us are alone since beginning to the end. No one except us know who we truly are, no matter how much time you spend with someone, you'll never truly know them and they'll never know you. You're the only who understand yourself, the only one who you can be 100% you is just you. That's simply because we're all different people, with different perspectives. So no matter what, in the end you're all alone....

Should eugenics be used to improve the human race?

corporealbeing
RedAnarchist

I believe eugenics is a viable option for improving the overall quality or life for all humans. Eugenics (also called scientific selection, or artificial selection) has a bad reputation, obviously because it was a tactic used by the Nazis to create a master Aryan race. I am here to defend it. By participating in this debate, you are hereby accepting the following: - Eugenics is defined as: the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding to increase the occurrence of desi...

You have two personalities when on medication

Dab8er
corporealbeing

This is my second debate so I maybe a little "suckey" Imagine you have a mental disorder, lets say ADHD, and when you don't take meds you are spontaneous, hyper, maybe even humorous. But then you take some medications, you now are more thoughtful, calm, still humorous but you find different things funny, and your a bit more patient. At school/ work you are doing much better at your tasks but your peers tell you of how you seem "different," some prefer you when you are on medications, others...
