I will debate you on 5, 8, or 21. But at a later date, just to keep you waiting.

A challenge has been issued to the user Ajabi for his claim that 0.99* equals 1.
So far, he has not accepted this simple, one-round challenge.

I am intrigued to see whether he - an aspiring mathematician - will shy away from a simple challenge.

1. This House Believes That Ontology Necessitates God! (Pro)
Ontology is a philosophical study. If the study necessitated God, the study would be useless, as it includes the question whether God exists or not. If the study can only exist because God exists, there would be no room for study any more. Please rephrase accordingly.

2. This House Believes That Homosexual Acts Are Immoral! (Pro)
Since there is no definition of morality accepted by everyone, all this is is a truism. The house in question sets a moral standard that excludes homosexual activities, then declares homosexual activity immoral.

3. This House Believes That Time Is An Effect Of Causality, Not A Cause of Causality! (Pro)
False dichotomy. Leaves out the obvious possibility that Time and Causality could be unrelated altogether.

4. This House Believes That A Neo-Lorentzian Aether Exists! (Pro/Con)
Belief is not a matter of science, as it is by definition beyond proof. There is nothing to debate here.

5. This House Believes That The B-Theory of Time Is On Balance Better Supported Than The A-Theory of Time! (Pro)
False dichotomy. Both are perspectives of looking at an abstract concept, namely Time, without any claim as to the actual nature of time itself. This resolution is like claiming that looking into a house is better supported than looking out of a house. What does it even mean?

6. This House Supports The One Electron Hypothesis! (Con)
Beyond empirical proof.

7. This House Believes That The Hartle-Hawking Model Is Accurate! (Con)
A model can never be accurate, as it is be definition a mental approximation. Truism.

8. This House Believes That A Priori Knowledge Exists! (Pro)
Contradiction. Knowledge is information stored in some form of medium. It has to be stored their first. Even by creating a medium with the information in place is storing information. So there can be no knowledge before a cause. Facts can exist though, so please rephrase.

9. This House Supports Logical Positivism! (Con)
Without logical positivism, this debate forum would be useless. If anything any party says has the same value, there's no need to debate things.

10. This House Believes That The Big Bang Model Is The Current Best Model Of The Description Of The Early Universe!
Ok, there's not a lot to debate here, as this is the current paradigm.

11. This House Believes That The Universe Is Infinite In Time! (Con)
Beyond any possibility of proof, again. Nothing to debate.

12. This House Supports The Entropic-Gravity Theory! (Con)
See 7.

13. This House Believes Asexuality Is Unethical! (Con)
Belief, again, is nothing to discuss, and moral standards - ah, just see 2.

14. This House Believes Philosophy Is Dead! (Con)
Since philosophy has never been described as a living entity, it cannot be considered dead.

15. This House Believes Utilitarianism Is A Sound Ethical Theory! (Con)
See 2. And 13.

And so on.
Tired of going through all of these, they are all gibberish.
Take my challenge and show me what you're made of.

Likewise. Yours, in this case. If I wanted to debate this nonsense, I would have challenged you.

What? Can't get a point across in a one-round debate that even gives you the last word?
Why do you have so low a self-esteem?

The problem remains of us agreeing on a Creator God who is the efficient cause of *this* Universe, or just a God who could have created a multiverse which resulted in this Universe. I favour the latter definition, you desire the former.

I am not a B-theorist. The A and B theories are both slightly flawed, and we need a persistence-based theory. I *do* deny that time exists as an objective reality (thus I'm more B theorist) but I also *do* favor a certain amount of causal linkage transcending Humean boundaries from a Kantain epistemology.

So yes if we look at the theories strictly from their first premise: is time objective tense-full or subjectively so (a.k.a tenseless) then I am a B theorist.

I don't desire the former, lol. I'm fine with both. I thought you desired a *non-creator* God in the debate we were supposed to do -- not *this* universe, *the* universe/multiverse.

You were fine with the latter? WTH I'm ready to go on! I thought you didn't want any form of creator God, lol. (though I could be fine with a non-creator God as well)

I don't desire the former, lol. I'm fine with both. I thought you desired a *non-creator* God in the debate we were supposed to do -- not *this* universe, *the* universe/multiverse.

You were fine with the latter? WTH I'm ready to go on! I thought you didn't want any form of creator God, lol. (though I could be fine with a non-creator God as well)

I'm fine with a Creator God as long as He is not the efficient cause of *this* Universe. That forces me to validate the cosmological argument (which I don;t believe in because I deny absolute time). All right I'll send the challenge then.

Yay, another B-theorist :P

I am not a B-theorist. The A and B theories are both slightly flawed, and we need a persistence-based theory. I *do* deny that time exists as an objective reality (thus I'm more B theorist) but I also *do* favor a certain amount of causal linkage transcending Humean boundaries from a Kantain epistemology.

So yes if we look at the theories strictly from their first premise: is time objective tense-full or subjectively so (a.k.a tenseless) then I am a B theorist.

Or you could be a C-theorist, like McTaggart himself.

McTaggart was a strict B theoriest. He invented the term. His book is "the Unreality of Time" and he practically laid the foundations of B-theory.

Have you debated Bossy on this?

I forfeited the last round out of anger at bossy not accepting my present. You can read the debate though in my null debates (as in no one won).
