The point in my previous post was targeted towards theistic people who believe life is precious because "god" wanted us to live.
A different argument that supports the conclusion that life is not precious is the amount of people there are. Think about it; thousands or maybe even millions of people are born everyday, with billions currently living. Is life still special, still precious, when it is everywhere?
life is of incredible value
Do you realize how much death there is and how common it is? Assuming you believe there is a "god", why would death be such an everyday-thing if your "god" put such a high value on life?
It can also be the other way; thousands perhaps millions of people are born each day. Think of it as this; if diamonds were everywhere, would they still hold the same amount of value?
I think the debate description isn't doing a good job of explaining Hitchens' razor.
Anyways... I generally agree with it. If a person makes a claim, they should be the ones who have to provide the proof/evidence.
"Fairies are real! And until you show or give me proof/evidence of their non-existence, they are real goddammit!"
You already created this debate before... word for word actually...
Majority of religion are just cults feeding off of pathetic people who have nothing to hope for but a fictitious character who will lead them to a fake place of goodness. Anybody who belongs to a religion such as the Catholic church is a complete idiot who doesn't deserve to have respect due to their undying stupidity and faith to the obviously impossible. Fuck!
I am seething with rage as I click to submit this.
Who the frick cares if it is a human being or not? It's a mother's own choice if she wants to kill it or not. Besides, people die everyday, I don't see anybody whining over that. "Oh your killing an innocent little baby! you brute!", oh please, did you know that child could grow up to be a rapist or a mass murderer? The way I see it, it's just one less person who may have never met or even interacted with. People get raped, people get murdered, as long as it doesn't affect me, I don't care.
