Do humans know everything?

Almog
Commondebator

Think about it...and when I say think about it, I mean throw away everything you think you know about what you don't, and think deeply about the argument. It is possible to know everything. By possible to know everything, I mean not in a carnal state, but rather in a general state. When one knows everything in a general state, only thing can someone learn everything in specificity. There are may questions people think are unanswered, but they are in our face. In order to know everything, you hav...

One Plus One: Two?

downwithdooshes
vjb

1 cup of oil+one cup of alcohol=less than 2 cups of liquid. So 1+1 does not equal 2. Also, 42 is the answer to anything in the universe, making 1+1=42. But many argue that since every baby knows it, and that even Betrand Russell "proved" it, it is true. However, not all babies can find that for themselves, and are "force-fed" it by their mothers. Also, Russell's proof later was discovered to be errorous, making it hard to decide if 1+1 does equal 2. If 1+1=2, 2=42 does not equal 2....

Are there examples of TECHNOLOGY that are traping us more then to librate us?

TECHNOLOGY TRAP As a consequence of the ascendancy of technology, humans have become demeaned and powerless -- second-class citizens in their own societies." In public debates about the issues of our time -- climate change, peak oil, economic collapse, and militarism -- there is an elephant in the room that no one seems to want to acknowledge. Perhaps that is because the elephant is not an elephant at all. It"s the disastrous technological way of life humans have been pursuing since at least t...

Model Debate : Hot Girls

Mikal
dtaylor971

Note : This was an idea that either bsh or annie came up with, but I liked the concept. Each round each user will post 5 pictures of a model. All the pictures that are posted in one round must be of the same model. Meaning there will be 4 different models used throughout the course of this debate, with 20 pictures total. The name of the model should be included with their age, height, and weight. Con Will start the debate in round 1, and pass in round 5 to even out the rounds. Ju...

ESocialBookworm

PrefaceI am having this debate for three reasons (a) I've kind of wanted to try something like this for awhile, (b) it annoys me not having an equal number of lost and tied debates, and (c) 111 debates is such an awkward number to leave the site on that I need to do one more debate. Plus, hot guys are wonderful...This debate is a non-voting debate. Both me and Annie (by accepting this debate) agree that all votes cast on this debate should null (awar...

Animal Rights

y16

1. The basic moral rights of at least some non-human animals are in no way inferior to our own. 2. Non-human mammals have essentially the same right not to be harmed or killed as we do. 3. Normal, mature mammals are not only sentinent but have other mental capabilities as well. 4. These include the capacities for emotion, memory, belief, desire, the us of general concepts, intentional action, a sense of the future, and some degree of self-awareness. 5. They are not only alive in the biologic...

The CIA Was Right in Torturing Terrorists

Please note this round is for acceptance only. I wish to contend that the CIA was right in the usage of harsh interrogation methods. If you do not know of this, here is a link: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-30401100 I would prefer facts mentioned to be attributed to their source. Good luck and have fun!...
