God created the World

Logos

Genesis 1:1-26 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was [a] formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. 6 And God...

The only thing we can be certain of is our existence.

This debate will be a discussion of subjectivist and objectivist frames of reference aswell as the possibility of a priori knowledge. Your references can include anything from Berkeley, Kant, and Hume to your own experiences. Please enjoy yourself and think outside the box!...

String theory

GaryBacon
Sanchez

One of the most amazing philosophers of all time is Karl Popper. He came up with the idea of falsificationism. This is a philosophy that applies to science. It states that if an idea is not falsifiable, it is not scientific. This does not mean that the theory is false. That is a misconception. The idea is that if an hypothesis or a theory were false, there would be a way to show it. (E.g. nothing travels faster than the speed of light) This is (to the best of our knowledge) a true statement. How...

Chances that a alien visiting us would be nearly identical 2 humans or humanoid at all is very small

Harlan
dthmstr254

...And the media's portrayal of what an alien would look like is flawed. (continued from topic) This may seem like an odd topic, but I actually have once gotten into an argument about this. WE are all familiar with the media's portrayal of what an "alien" looks like, and we have seen plenty of alleged videos of aliens which, also, portray an alien that has a complexion almost identical to a human. But does that really make sense? If an intelligent being from a star light-years awa...

Time is an illusion

happypancakeeater

I assert that time does not exist. It is, in fact, an illusion created by the movement of matter and energy. Let's suppose a greatly simplifed universe which is only composed of 4 atoms labeled A, B, C, and D. In this space exactly large enough to contain these atoms they are created by God and arranged in order ABC and D is the observer. God rearranges them to CAB and D is not changed. God rearranges them back to ABC and D is not changed. Did atom D just go back in "time" or just witness a...

Global Warming exists and mankind is responsible for it.

blond_guy
libertyforall

I hope there are takers, I've seen some members that do not believe in the global warming theory so I'd like to make it clear. 1)Global Warming exists. If you are not ok with that statement please say so. 2)Humans are the ones responsible for it. There is plenty of evidence that shows humans emit large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. There hasn't been so much greenhouse gas carbon dioxide in the atmosphere sine 650,000 years ago. 3) Many find it natural that the earth will cool ba...

Time does not exist

Miserlou

Before beginning this round, I would like to clarify a few things: We are debating the essence of time, not a humans sense of time, measurement of time, or time as a word. ************************T I M E L E S S************************************ So this is where the actual debate comes in. I feel time, as a dimension or "universe" is false. We live in a 3D world. We have depth. We can move forward, up, left, etc. We can not move across time. We exist. We can not slow down time. We can n...

Intelligent Design Is Not Science

Derrida
olle15

My Argument is that Intelligent Design is not science, and so shouldn't be given the same treatment as science, i.e. shouldn't be taught as a scientific theory, shouldn't be debated in scientific journals or given scientific research grants by the government etc... For my position, I will put forward 2 arguments: 1) Intelligent Design is wrong; there is no reason to believe that the theory of ID has any weight, and as such should be discarded along with Lamarckian evolution and geocentrici...

Global warming is nothing more than a natural warming cycle, and not is due to CO2 emissions.

JasonMc
llamallama

It would seem that the consensus among academic institutions worldwide would be enough to persuade most people that global warming is real, that it is a problem, and that it is a direct result of human-produced carbon emissions into the Earth's atmosphere, but many are still not convinced. The skeptical argument seems to be that the Earth is so vast that mankind could never be any real threat to it, and / or all of the evidence presented by the world's most prominent scientific minds only points...
