the 'unlimited paradox' - the unlimited is proven to be a false idea

the 'unlimited paradox' - the unlimited is proven to be a false idea weakest point. the unlimited paradox states that an immovable object cannot exist at the same time as an unstoppable force. the fact that it cannot exist at the same time, shows that the unlimited truly doesn't exist. better point. an immovable rock cannot be created that can be lifted by an unstoppable force....

If the Taliban are terrorists, then the United States are as well

ChosenWolff
Preston

Official Resolution: If the Taliban are terrorists, then the United States are as wellThis is an intresting concept I've been meaning to get to, on a philosophical argument I've been studying for awhile. The BOP will reside on me proving, that if the Taliban were to be considered terrorists, then the United States would also have to be considered terrorists. The opposition must be of the belief that the Taliban are terrorists. Usually...

Is it necessary for God to be infinitely powerful?

subjectname
Geogeer

This is my first debate, so just trying to keep it lite and casual, get my toes wet, and hopefully be able to vote on debates at some point (instead of sniping at people's arguments from the comments section. So anyway... 3 rounds, 4000 characters, 1st round will be my opening argument and yours, 2nd will be rebuttal and new/other arguments, 3rd will be rebuttal and conclusion (no newer arguments). I've observed that a lot of these "omnipotence paradoxes" seem to depend on the premise that...

Divinity is real in some form

ChosenWolff
Raymond_Reddington

This is a continuation of another debate, where me and Raymond disagreed on the structure. I will be arguing that divinity is real. Note, this is a philosophy debate, and not a religious one. I intend on using the stoic argument for the existence of god, as it has been accepted by atheists, scientists, and the religious alike, and will keep this from turning into a "religion vs atheism" debate. This is a metaphysics debate, and should be argued from a secular POV, and from scratch. Argument...

Atheism is more reasonable and positive than Deism

SweeneyTodd
mbm16

From my understanding, a lot of people call themselves deists because they think it's better to believe in something rather than nothing: it's more optimistic and more logical. I not only think it's silly to choose deism over atheism but atheism is definitely more optimistic....

Red is better than blue.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Since the dawn of time there has been a war. We all know this war. It runs through our veins, it is in our bruises. We were introduced to this war the very moment our eyes became fully developed, having only been alive for merely six months. This war is the single most important issue that has ever arisen. It tore nations apart. It threw people into prison. It has been used to conquer. It has instilled people with fear. Now if you would be so kind, I beg you, lend me you...

There is a Non-Physical Basis of Human Consciousness

fa07
letrashman

The title says it all pretty much. I am of the position that consciousness is entirely physical, a product of physical states and processes of the brain. In other words, I am taking a physicalist or what one might call a materialist approach to consciousness, that consciousness is entirely brain-based. Whoever argues pro must be arguing that there is some non-physical aspect to the human mind. Granted, what exactly I mean by "physical", "material", and "brain-based" is admittedly somewhat vague,...

Any Transcendental Objective Meaning to Human life is both Illusory and destructive.

dannyc
Wylted

My contention for this proposition is that I feel any attempt to establish an Objective Meaning, a meaning which transcends or holds true to all of those who are members of the species H. sapiens, is not only an illusory prospect but one which has more destructive implications than positive. I require Con to obviously propose a framework for an objective meaning, including specifically a or many meanings, to use the term loosely. 1st Round. Accept and give your argument. 2nd Round. Re...

Utilitarianism is in principle a better system of morality.

Bullish
Bochoyboy

Note: I have made this debate impossible to accept. To be considered for accepting this debate, please state the moral system you will be arguing for in the comments section. Topic:I take the position that "Utilitarianism is in principle a better system of morality." My opponent must choose a sufficiently different system of normative morality and argue in favor of it. The winner is the one who shows his morality system to be better.

Since lust is a sin God cannot be both Omniscient and Omnibenevolent

This debate originally was for LifeMeansGodIsGood, but due to the fact he has neither accepted nor denied my request I am leaving it open for anyone who wishes to participate. These are the criteria for my opponent: He recognizes lust is a sin He recognizes Go...
