Human can't chage his destiny


I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfil our destiny, but our fate is sealed.

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


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]<...

Death is Fine


Death is nothing to be afraid of, I'm not, those who love life are greedy and selfish. If you have lived beyond your lifespan you'll agree with me. If you don't, you're a coward.

But just so we're clear I'm loosely using this definition: not logical or reasonable. If you don't want to use that strict definition that's fine...

Is a career more important than enjoyment?


Yes. I think your career in your life is more important than enjoyment because you can always seek happiness. Despite not having it, having a secure lifestyle with a constant income is essential on living a pleasant lifestyle.

Thus, it can be said that with your career, you can seek happiness....
