Quotation Philosopher Debate - Utilitarianism (pro) vs. Deontology (con)

Surrealism
Philocat

This is just a little experiment I'd like to try out. The essence of this is that it is a "quatation debate" meaning that we will debate the topic, in this case Utilitarianism vs. Deontology, using only quotations from the relevant philosophers.Rebuttals will be less important here, as we will be mostly trying to build our case better than our opponent. That is why there are only three rounds.Round One - Acceptance and state your most important philosopher.

This will take place within the confines of the Christian God. I argue that the problem of evil is a flawed argument to disprove God's existence and that he is an evil being. I will only use the Bible to logically deduce his nature not as bias. First round acceptance...

First round: Acceptance and state reasons. Second, third, fourth rounds: Arguments upon opponent's statements. Fifth: Closing argument Abortion is considered one of the safest medical procedures, along with being ome with almost no consequences of injury. It also is right since it is the woman's body and that the fetus was not born yet. And for also being since we kill animals, what is the difference between a human and a deer? Only our brains if you are speaking of logical difference....

Deontological morality is the moral framework(s) under which the morality of an action is determined by the intent of the actor. 1st Round is for acceptance. 2nd Round is for opening arguments. 3rd...
