Argument With The Deltan

Decent Essays

In this essay, I am going to argue with the “Deltan” about three different aspects of our world: free will, the nature of our minds and the where our world came from. I will be taking the position of defending that we do not have free, our minds are non-physical and the world came into existence by natural causes.

I would say that this is inaccurate, since there is proof in history that natural selection exists. Humans might have not always been complex; it is very possible that we simply evolved that way, since those who did not adapt died out. Because of this, we did not necessarily have to have had a creator; we simply evolved into complex individuals over time.
In conclusion, the Deltan did not succeed in contradicting my beliefs. I still strongly support the ideas that we do not have free will; all of our actions are predetermined, that our minds our non-physical; images in our brain exists on a different level of existence, and that world did not have a creator; the universe had always
