Will world peace ever exist
Debate Rounds (3)
I accept. I will argue that world peace will exist.
: the earth and all the people and things on it
: a part of the world and the people and things that exist there
: human society
: a state in which there is no war or fighting
: an agreement to end a war
: a period of time when there is no war or fighting
My burden is to prove that world peace will occur. Peace, as above, can be defined in three definitions. When these conditions are applied to the world (also defined above), world peace will occur.
The physical Earth will come to an end at some point. When it does, there will be no humans. Because there will be no humans, it will be impossible for them to fight. In the absence of fighting, there is peace. At that point, there will be peace.
At that time, the three conditions of peace will be met:
Now, for world peace to occur, there must be a world. The world is made of matter. Matter cannot be created or destroyed; there will always be a world.
However, there are two ways humans can survive the end of their habitat being the earth: Physical salvation or Metaphysical salvation.
Physical salvation is eventually impossible: the universe is expanding, eventually it will be impossible for humans to reach new star systems or galaxies for safety. Eventually the worlds they are on will be destroyed. Eventually they will be unable to reach safe havens as they will be too far away; an infinite distance. All humans will die and the conditions of peace will be met.
Metaphysical salvation requires a supernatural being to intervene and save humankind. However, no supernatural being can be proved. Non-transcendental evidence can never prove a transcendental being.
Therefore, there will be world peace as the world will always exist, and humans will eventually all die.
World peace will occur by default.
"Let's say if humans did die will their be world peace? Are humans the only thing fighting on this plant. Animals all fight for survival and some like humans will fight each other."
I mentioned humans because we'd be the most likely ones to escape any initial disaster or impending destruction from the sun. Sure, we'd carry puppies into orbit and all that, but as I mentioned previously, if something is living and can die, it will.
"And even if all life is wiped from Earth their is still natural violence that occurs. Chaos still occurs with or without life (look at volcanoes). For people to have world peace they must set aside their emotions that make them human and all agree on one thing."
Natural disasters are natural. They are not "fighting;" they simply occur. If something is expected to happen by natural causes, like hurting yourself when you stub your toe, that can't be considered fighting; that is considered physics.
Side note: setting aside emotion would cause humans to become robotic and lose individuality. Even with conflict, I'd rather be an individual than a mental image of everyone else.
