Performing Abortions Should be Illegal

Dan_H
Thoht

Debate around abortion is as old as abortion itself. Various academics and politicians have said their piece on the moral and practical questions in very public disagreements. Popular opinion now rests with those who hold that abortion is a right stemming from a woman's right to privacy and a woman's right to decide what is done to her body. The following is a moral argument for why abortion should be illegal in any case not including imminent risk to the mother's life. This exemption is a s...

Genetic modification of Humans is ultimately a good idea

The advantages of GMH are obvious, The possibility of extending lifespan, Elimination of genetic diseases, And the overall betterment of humans. Defending this position is more a matter of negating worries or disadvantages. Many people claim that it will become a new version of a caste system/racism that better able people will advance. However as technology improves it becomes cheaper and more abundant. Yes there will be super-humans at first, But they will be considered oddities or rare, A...

Is the Universe a Simulation?

Esan99
MrMaestro

First of all, I am going to start this by saying that I am choosing the more difficult side to support in this argument. Whoever accepts my challenge, Thank you. My argument for the universe not being a simulation is that for law to apply and for justice to be just, We must operate under the assumption that the universe is not a simulation, Otherwise we will descend in to anarchy because we are a simulation, Therefore we are not capable of conscious thought. If we are not capable of thought,...

Reality is a simulation

MrMaestro
Debate0ts

The "Simulation Hypothesis" argues that our reality, As we experience it, Could be a simulation. The argument rests on five assumptions: 1. It's possible to simulate consciousness - (or at least possible to trick the sims into thinking they're conscious, Depending on your definition of the word). 2. Technology will continue to progress to the point where we can simulate consciousness....

Where did God come from? A dream, A lie, And an explanation

backwardseden

Taken from "The Atheist Republic" Where did god come from? To Atheist Republic contributor Dean Van Drasek, The answer is simple: a dream, A lie, And an explanation. You may have come across this topic in books and articles about religion, Psychology, Anthropology, Philosophy, Comparative mythology/religion, Archeology, And even popular science books. Sadly, There is no answer, As it's buried in the depths of time before humans developed writing, And probably even before there was cave pain...
