time is only the present becoming the future, the past being non existent and just records

solar145254
vi_spex

The past isn't here. It used to be which sounds obvious about it being non existent currently yet the past is constantly referred to as something that is included as part of a wider cosmology, disregarding the present being all there is, the future becoming the present. Why is the past counted in things like research testing with repeat calculations?...

This house believes that "Knowledge is impossible"

George_DZ

My stand is that knowledge is possible. Before I begin my argumentation: Knowledge shall be defined by the traditional "justified true belief" analysis of knowledge, that is an agent knows a proposition only if the agent holds a belief in the proposition that is justified, and that the proposition turns out to be true. For simplification matters, since we are assuming the truth of justified true belief, let us not drag in the matter of Gettier Cases. Belief is defined as having a propositional...

I envision a court case in which a time traveller having travelled forward through time, has been witnessed killing himself/herself and now stands trial for murder. Scientists have established that indeed the killer has travelled through time and has killed his/her future self. The accused's defence team argue that the time traveller is innocent of murder and had merely committed suicide. Pro will argue from the stance of the prosecution, that it was murder. Con will take the stance that is...

Pascal's Wager is true.

K.Risk
vi_spex

I am looking for an opposer who fully believes that Pascal's wager holds truth and is justifiable by the reasoning of finite and infinite gain or loss depending on the existence or non-existence of God. I was hoping for an opponent who will respectfully introduce me to a different perspective and respectfully debate me until the very end. I will be arguing that there are flaws with Pascal's wager and that his ideology of God's existence is irrelevant and false. I am looking for an opponent wh...

ViceRegent
selena16

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. So, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...
