The Grim Reaper Paradox

Vernich
Sswdwm

If there were an actually infinite number of Grim Reapers tasked with your death at a uniform interval from 1pm to 2pm, and the first Reaper strikes at 1:30, the second at 1:15, and so on... then you can't both live or die in that hour interval.

Abortion Is Prima Facie Morally Wrong

Freeman
JoshBrahm

Allow me to begin by saying how pleased I am to be debating Josh Brahm. I'm sure that many of you will never get to read a more powerful case for the pro-life position than the case you will read in the course of this debate.

Individuals act only on behalf of their own well being

AnotherUniverse
philochristos

Acting in one"s self-interest is acting in a way that satisfies our personal desires. Individuals are selfish in nature, so even if they seem to be selfless, for example donating to charity, they will in actuality be acting only to better their social standing or feel good about themselves.

9spaceking
demonlord343

Within this debate I will be arguing about a very serious topic: the impossibility of impossibility. Is impossibility possible? Or is it impossible? That is the question. So here, we come, to debate about this question that has been pondered over many many years, perhaps even centuries. We question about the existence of impossibility. Could everything be possible after all? I don't think so. I think there exists some impossibility, and thus, impossibility is proved possible.pro will...
