God Exists

Rational_Thinker9119

Rules/ StipulationsGod will be defined as a maximally great being (who has necessary existence, if possible). God is also defined as the tri-omni (omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent) cause of the universe. This is the classical philosophical definition of God. The burden will be on Pro to demonstrate that it is more plausible that God exists than not. My burden is to show that it is more plausible that God does not exist that does. Basical...

The Christian Doctrine of Creation Ex Nihilo is not supported by the KCA.

AdvocatiDiaboli

The KCA (Kalam Cosmological Argument), for example, ambiguously attempts to establish the universe having an efficient cause. At face value, this seems acceptable on the grounds that all things within the universe exist causally like so:A: All things that come into being have a causeB: The universe came into beingC: Therefore, the universe had a causeBut...

General Theism Contains a True Proposition for God's Existence

ChristusExemplar

(1) Defining Theism I will define traditional (or according to the resolution, 'general') theism as the following: "There exists necessarily a person without a body who necessarily is eternal, perfectly free, omnipotent, omniscient, perfectly good, and the creator of all things" (R. Swinburne, 'The Existence of God'; p. 6). Dr. Rick Cornish further expounds, "Theism believes that one infinite, personal God is the ultimate reality... this God created the universe, disclosed Himself to mank...

Is There a God?

qopel

Rules: No Theists. They are biased and insane. No profiles that claim they are 100 years old. I don't debate with liars. Nobody under 18. People under 18 already know everything. No claiming "something can't come from nothing". Nobody has ever had a "nothing" to examine, so it can't even be defined what a "nothing" is. No claiming "everything must have a cause". Causality didn't exist until after the Bing Bang, which means the Big Bang could have happened without a cause. No claimi...
