About Me:I'm a futurologist, realist, atheist, dozenalist, music-playing member of the most powerful species on earth. Yet as a single human, you or I are powerless. I prefer only to debate someone if I personally agree with the side I'm arguing for, and likewise for my opponent.
Activities:Procrastinating
Beliefs:The more outlandish something is, the more entertaining it is. The uglier something is, the more practical it is. The older something is, the wiser it is. I believe heaven and earth are the same thing, and heaven and hell are two outlooks on the same earth. Mother Earth was here before you were, and will remain if you leave through death or departure. To fight over ruling part of her is to ignore your place in the universe. Even if you conquer her, Mother Earth is still just a dust mote that formed after the sun formed, much like you formed after she formed, and so the sun to the galaxy and the galaxy to the universe. If all of humanity blindly rages war like weak animals, rather than band together, the real rulers of the universe will be indifferent should they for some reason obliterate our planet. God has ignored the pleas for mercy from the dying breath of every person trapped in a nuclear explosion, sinking ship or frozen wasteland. Do you think he will ignore you too?

God's Existence Is Personal Opinion

BradK
Truth_seeker

This debate is not focused on God's existence. This debate is focused on the question, "Is belief in God a personal opinion, or is it based on some sort of observational evidence?" Objectivity cannot be disputed, subjectivity can. A simple example would be that a falling rock objectively falls. Subjectively you can say it's doing anything, you could say it's falling or evaporating, and subjectively I can say it's doing anything as well. But objectively, we have to agree that it is falling. If...

MBTI Is Pseudoscience

BradK
ForSerious

Astrology or horoscopes are pseudoscience because they don't provide valid explanations and are easily debunkable. My claim is that Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is better classified under pseudoscience as well, rather than actual science.---MBTI 101:There are 4 cognitive functions and 2 temperaments:COGNITIVE FUNCTIONS:- Thinking (T) (judging)- Feeling (F)(judging)- Sensing (S) (perceiving)- Intuition (N)(perceiving)TEMPERAMENTS:- Extraverted (E)- Introverted (I)INFORMATION FLOW DIRECTION- Judgin...

Consciousness (Human, animal, etc) Can Exist Without a Brain

BradK
InnovativeEphemera

The topic of the debate is consciousness, the premise is that it can exist outside of the brain but we just don't have a machine capable of running it.Suppose that we understood all of the laws of nature that enable life to exist. Then suppose hypothetically that you could simulate all the models of chemistry/physics/quantum physics necessary, either in a virtual world, or in reality in some sort of "brain machine". I think that you could have an independently thinking consciousness in either th...
