That is, without God we can not make sense of our experience, indeed we can not make sense of anything at all. This would mean that knowledge ca...

Nothing outside of the text of this debate can be subject to contradiction.3. Con will ask questions for rounds 1 and 2. Round 3 is for conclusions. ...
