Debate Rounds (5)
For a primal tribe of savages, it is moral and correct for 30+ men to murder and pillage neighboring tribes.
Under American Law, it is illegal for 30+ men to travel to Vegas to murder and pillage.
The question is, what defines morality?
If you talk about homosexual behavior in the context of the Middle East, the death penalty is in effect.
If you talk about homosexual behavior in the context of the Canada, gay marriage is allowed.
Suppose a culture thought yeast was evil. Not just person X and person Y, but the entire culture.
zezima forfeited this round.
If absolute truth doesn"t exist, that means you don"t know anything for sure, meaning you don"t know anything. Can you know something for sure? With absolute truth you can, but without it you cant.
I can say everything you said is not true and you have no argument because you admitted you can know nothing for sure. If you didn"t admit this please explain to me how you can know something for sure.
You making this statement mean that you believe in absolute truth if you believe what you are saying is true. If you admit your wrong, then the debate is over. Please explain how everything you said is true without knowing if it is true.
The above statement is logically unsound, and is discarded out of hand.
"There is no absolute truth. And I am fairly certain that this is the case."
This is a more accurate description of my position.
In Round #1 there was an argument from morality for Con, which my opponent did not respond to. This is a major point.
So overall, I"m saying there is absolute truth and you are saying there might not be absolute truth.
//"There is no absolute truth. And I am fairly certain that this is the case."//
//This is a more accurate description of my position.//
Are you absolutely sure that is what you are saying?
You see, without absolute truth we know nothing, and we don"t even know what we are thinking.
Now for morality. Now none of these things prove or disprove absolute truth. We are not talking about morality. Morality is an opinion, without God.
Now please explain to me how you can know something for certain without absolute truth?
Is the absolute truth to say that there is no absolute truth? Let's go at this another way.
Stating that there are no unicorns does not create a unicorn. The same logic applies to the statement that there is no absolute truth. This does not create a truth, it points out the absence of truth.
Your only idea that it can't exist is because of moral reasons. You have no argument and haven't come up with anything that shows absolute truth can't exists.
