Do we have free will?

1Alyssa

This is a philosophy question about whether if humans really have free will given that they are composed of atoms and particles that behave in set ways. Not sure how this will go....so join in if you would like. I respect all religions, but please don't cite the Bible as a source of evidence. I believe the word free will is quite self-explanatory in terms of definition- The freedom of will ....

Chrysippus

This is barely debatable at all, and I really don't see how we won't have to both forfeit a round at some point....

"We Were All Put Here For A Reason"

PKisACat
The_Scapegoat_bleats

When I feel worthless, I have a friend that says "Aww it's ok, we were all put here for a reason!". Well, I don't believe this is so. If we were just "born" with a reason, the development up to that reason wouldn't be needed, one, and why do we /need/ a reason? We can find them on our own....

Is genetic modification playing god and therefor a unethical and a sin.

Allthenamesaretacken
Guarneer

I'm not debating whether or not torturing animals and doing inhumane experiments for the sake of science is in anyway correct. I'm debating whether the basic act of changing the natural computer code that generates all forms of life is morally or religiously incorrect. Now, many people tend towards the idea that that genetic modification is blasphemy, a disaster waiting to happen because humanity is striving emulate god's grate power something that can only end in disaster, eg a zombie apocal...

A World Without Lies

Surtr
RiskTaker

This debate is about whether a world without lies would either (Pro) morally correct/good or (Con) morally incorrect/evil. I will take the position of con. Good-beneficial to the human race as a general whole. Evil-detrimental to the human race as a general whole. Lie-a deliberate deception engineered to hide or conceal truth, for any reason. Truth-a fact, something that is inherently correct; the manner something clearly is/the way it clearly occurred. In this debate, morality will be...

The LRA caused more terror then Al- Qaeda

Jifpop09
bubbatheclown

I will be arguing that the Lords Resistance Army (LRA) caused more fear and terror then Al-Qaeda. This is not centered on who got more media attention, but as who did more terrible things. Besides that, the rules are pretty explanatory.
