"I think therefore I am" is circular

DoulosChristos
ChiefQweef95

I do not believe "I think therefore I am" is a logically sound statement, the I is already presupposed at the beginning. Anybody care to disagree?...

Does My Theory of Ethics Work?

Nathaniel_Kampeas
RMTheSupreme

Ethical rules have their basis in the community's common interests, and, when stated in general terms, are formulated from a common condition or set of conditions surrounding an action that make it unpalatable to a community by virtue of the general condition(s) itself (e.g. the condition of greed and selfishness being the motivation for a killing), and not all the details peculiar to each action (e.g. the particular resources stolen, the place of the incident, etc). When a community of indiv...

The Problem of Evil fails

bacchicfrenzy
Emily77

I would like to argue that the Problem of Evil fails. I am looking for someone to defend the view that the Problem of Evil shows there is no God. Problem of Evil: 1) God is all knowing, so knows of evil 2) God is all powerful, so could stop evil 3) God is all good, so would stop evil 4) So, if God exists, there is no evil 5) Evil Exists 6) So, there is no God I will define evil as gratuitous human suffering, but the debater may define evil how they want. My initial reply to the p...

The recent push to stop bullying is stopping natural selection

Jellyfisher
aidensawesome

Animals in nature, in a sense, bully each other to survive. They do this naturally whether it's for food, water, a mater, or shelter. If bullying is bad, but animals doing it is fine; is humans bullying then being told not to, halting the process of natural selection?...

Cosmological Arguments for the Existence of God Fail

LuckyPenny
MagicAintReal

I tried to make the topic statement as self-explanatory as possible. I find cosmological arguments to be incredibly interesting as they are popular (due to the sizable reach of Natural Theology among lay believers) and can involve complex philosophical issues about things like causes, contingency/necessity, time, modality (especially metaphysical and logical possibility), and so on. As an atheist, I believe that all cosmological arguments fail for some reason or another (either they are structur...

Being Gay is Wrong and Unnatural

EliWilliam2020
your_local_alien

INTRODUCTION: I suspect my work it cut out for me on this one. History hasn't been on my side of this debate, and it has me defending two separate propositions. Still, I think my perspective is unique, because I'm not religious, or conservative; and I don't come at this with the kind of dogmatic certainty of others who have debated from my position. So hopefully you can forget about all those people on "my side", and just evaluate me by my word. Because the world doesn't always look the way w...

Are so called "Anarcho Capitalists" actually anarchists?

Dez_E
AlexIsWright

My argument, in a nutshell, is that so called "anarcho-capitalists" are ideologically opposed to the political theory of anarchism, and that while they are against certain types of authority, they actually are in favor of others. Anarchism is not just opposition to the state, it also includes opposition the all forms of unjustified authority....

is evil and good just figments of the imagination?

akvile02
Doubles

the only thing a human has to do in life is to die, everything else is just a choice. if god is just a figment of ones imagination and life in the end just ceases to exist then there's no meaning in life, thus there's no transcendental being. evil and good are both just figments of ones imagination and so is morality. everything is a construct. rape and murder is equally meaningless like love and care....
