This debate is whether Santa Claus is good for children or not. I can tell you why he's not, and you can tell me why he is. Santa Claus is a bribe. Children are no nicer because of him. The children on his "nice list" are just as fake as he is. Make the best debater win....

Theism offers a more likely context than atheism for affirming moral realism.

popculturepooka
Sargon

I thank Sargon agreeing to debate me on this topic. I shall be arguing that given moral realism theism is more likely than atheism. Or that theism makes "more sense" of moral realism than atheism does. My job is to argue that, yes, theism offer a more likely context in which to affirm moral realism and Con's job is to argue that, to the contrary, atheism offers a more likely context than theism in which to affirm moral realism. In short, this will be a mostly meta-ethical debate. [1]<...

Vinnie_Cross_Briet
Logiq

IntroDefinition creator: creator, meaning an intelligent mind that thinks and creates, an actual personal entity. Anyone is free to accept this debate, regardless of you being new or a veteran. I will start with two out of several arguments I have for the existence of a creator, will elaborate a bit on them but will also try keep it as short as possible.

Objective morality is an incoherent concept.

3RU7AL
Lupricona

Thank you for participating in this debate. I will be arguing in favor of the view that objective morality is an incoherent concept. The term "objective" is generally understood to mean something that is independent of observation and not subject to opinion or interpretation. An "objective" observer is expected to be totally impartial and unbiased. On the other hand, "morality" is considered to be a system of values and/or principles of conduct, along with associated prescribed consequence...
