Science has rendered theism unreasonable

Jellon
Envisage

There is a chronic tension between agnostics and theists where both sides believe people who believe the other side are unreasonable. I often see names called by both sides. As one who believes both belief systems are reasonable, I intend to defend the position that modern science has not rendered theism unreasonable. To win, Pro must show that modern scientific knowledge provides overwhelming evidence that there does not exist a god. To win, Con must be able to reasonably address all argume...

Only cowardly, manipulative scum reject comments.

Max.Wallace
JPat05

Most big self proclaimed judges do not accept comments from the peanut gallery here as they are all knowing, and commentators are numbskulls in their mind. Grow up and take your medicine, the words of the crowd. Only a succubus accepts no comments, as they feel they are irresistable....

Objective Moral Judgements can be made in Moral Nihilism

*Leave a message if you want to accept this debate*Details:I have been thinking for a while how to word this resolution, which is my own position in terms of moral philosophy. I am a Nihilist, and I think it's a rational starting position for making moral judgements. For example, I will make the claim the holocaust was wrong, and I make that as an intended objective statement. The BoP is on me to demons...

Absolute truth is the absolute truth.

Atmas
TheatreVirus

Absolute truth exists absolutely, regardless of the subjective nature of experience. The key here is the difference between what we consider facts and what we consider truth. Facts are conditional and changeable due to entropy, but truths, such as how gravity works, are immune to such change. Because such things are immutable, unchangeable, and constant, they are in fact absolute truths. The possible existence of another universe doesn't negate these truths because one could come up with any...

Are vampires real?

Madgirl707
Isaac77

I believe vampires are real because of the fact that the stories must have been pasted down for years for a reason. The tales of Vampires have been told for centuries, people who have died and Been reborn into blood thirsty hunters. These myths must have come from somewhere. It is almost impossible to fabricate a creature in such detail and have enough people to believe it that people were burned or staked for it as a crime. If the legends are fake then where did they come from? And why do so...

If you wished for someone to die, and they died are you responsible?

This is a philosophical debate about murder.Once you accept, your views about murder might change.Here are the rules... Forfeit once and it's automatic loss. No insulting. The bible is a limited source. If you use the bible, it must have a secondary source to back it up. This debate is to be taken seriously. No trolling, no nonsense, and I have no tolerance for it. Round one is acceptance. Round five is the conclusion. Murder is defined as "The crime of deliberately killing a person". [...

One must oppose capitalism in order to be an Anarchist.

Hello everyone! This topic was inspired by MaesterAemon's comment on the debate "Government is unnecessary and unjust and should be abolished". http://tinyurl.com/pz9cu9j MaesterAemon states:"While you are obviously trying to associate yourself with the anarchist tradition by using the word "anarcho" or by calling yourself "anarchists" you...

Euthanasia

lannan13

On our last attempt at debating this subject, I had to leave for a vacation where I didn't have access to WiFi. I was forced to forfeit and thus "lost" the debate. I'd be interested in a rematch. I'll use the same arguments i presented for the last debate in the opening round. Con is free to copy and paste his previous arguments as well, or present an entirley new case. Good luck. ===========...
