There is no unchanging, separate self.

Strycora
PhilK

First round for acceptance only. The feeling of being an individual separate from ones environment is inevitably found to be illusory. There is no core to being, no "observer" or "soul" that continues from life to life, or even, from moment to moment. All things are subject to change, and there is no unchanging substrate to this change. Indeed, "essence" is an illusory notion....

We live in our home. Our home is 100% Finite Existence or World or Universe or Everything. This Everything collectively known as Single Entire World or just World is a Machine. World is a Machine. Life is a subset of this Machine. Life is a Machine. Entire World is one Changing World. Changes are localized or can be said to have Frames of reference. So one World has many events or different parts changing or having different clocks. Everything is a variation or picture or ev...

0.9999 (repeating) = 1

TheTom
Jzyehoshua

Normally debates are about opinions. This is about fact. I maintain that 0.9999 (going on forever) is the same thing mathematically, and realistically as 1. I expect my opponent to have an understanding of math, such as basic algebra, and rules of infinity. First round is for acceptance AND posting arguments. For the sake of simplicity, the term 0.999... will mean 0.999 repeating. FAIR WARNING: This is a mathematical fact. The evidence is on my side. If you choose to accept this argument, you...

This debate would be about birth control. I would argue that the government should fund birth control and that doing so would benefit the nation more then hurt it. Obviously the opponent would be debating the opposite...

Obama should be impeached

Jzyehoshua
EliasL

My position is that Barack Obama should most definitely be impeached; that he deserves impeachment. Opponent will argue that he should not be impeached. The following are some quick core arguments in support of this: 1. Obama spied on hundreds of millions of people via the NSA hacking the Google and Yahoo servers.[1] This is more serious than Watergate ever was as Watergate involved stealing the information of a few, and Nixon was impeached for the Watergate scandal.[2] 2. Obama's now-lege...

Is an Organ Lottery Ethical?

connorgon
SPENCERJOYAGE14

To begin, I'd like to go to the liberty to explain what the organ lottery is. The organ lottery is when every person's name is put into a drawing persay, and if your name was drawn whenever someone needed organs, you are required by law to have all your organs harvested for people who need them. I firmly believe that this is not OK. Imagine, you're a 6 year old boy and your name is drawn from this lottery and you are forced to end your life that moment for people who need organs. The reason p...

Does science fundamentally have the ability to 'play god'?

AgnosticPanda
Blade-of-Truth

If science is " knowledge about or study of the natural world based on facts learned through experiments and observation" and it is through human ingenuity and creativity that have allow us to manipulate the surrounding environment to create technology which is the embodiment of that manipulation. Is it fundamentally possible for science to 'cross into gods realm and play god'? http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/science...
