How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
King-La-Ding

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT THESE ATHEISTS KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET NOT ONE HAS ANSWERED MY Q. Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. SO,...

The Full King La Ding resolution: Recreational AND medical marijuana should be legal for adults in the United States, because the benefits clearly outweigh the positives. King La Ding Enterprises sponsors this debate with a set of rules, and this set of rules is as followed: If you are caught in an incorrect fact or anomaly, you must formerly recognize the opponent (who is roughly 99.99999999% likely to be me) as superior to you in every aspect of life....

Battlefield 1 - Dreadnought is better than Airship

Hawkecrail
Critics360

The Dreadnought is a much better behemoth than the airship. The Dreadnought has 2 powerful AA guns and 2 Powerful cannons as its main weapons. The AA guns can easily destroy planes and boats to defend the dreadnought, and can even kill infantry and light vehicles very accurately and quickly. The two big cannons wreak havoc on structures, vehicles, and infantry It also has much more survivability than the airship, and a strong team can keep the dreadnought alive much more than the airship....

God is Dead

Amarandum
Rjupudi18

I'd like to have a civil, evidence-based debate with someone who really believes in the Abrahamic / Judeo-Christian God.

R3: Pro Question and Answer Round, where Pro asks as many questions as they want, and Con answers all accordingly. R4: Con Question and Answer Round, where Con asks as many questions as they want, and Pro an...

Will America murder David E. Stannard, for threatening the state's founding cult?

hugosl

http://dickshovel.com/lsa3.html Although there are various people of the political spectrum in the US, which claim to hate each other, all worship the nation's so-called "founders," as gods, and goddesses. Any criticism of them is forbidden, and anyone who criticizes them, will be called "anti-american," a traitor. David E. Stannard, on the Dickshovel link, dares to blaspheme, what someone calls the "Americult," by revealing the so-called "Founding Fathers," and "Founding Mothers," are not go...

Money enslaves the populus

dr.jimmythefish
Rational_Thinker9119

The practice of money, and its inevitable hoarding causes a concentration of power in a new monarchy of billionaires, who are running the world through capital. The world is now less nations and more corporations, ran by unelected CEOs who answer to none other than their shareholders and they by use of bribery control their interests in government. Democracy and freedom are dead, the destruction of the means of control is necessary, for this means also controls your daily life, each and every da...

The existence of C-14 in the bones of dinosaurs proves they lived less than 100,000 years ago

Abeceda
Apophis66

The theoretical limit for the detection of C-14 is 100,000 years. Therefore, when C-14 is detected in a closed system, the age is certainly less than 100,000 years of age. C-14 has been detected in numerous dinosaur bones consistently, therefore the dinosaur bones are less than 100,000 years. Read further for more information:Ten researchers from the United States, France and Poland wrote a report called BG02-A012 A Comparison of 13C & pMC Values for Ten Cretaceous-...

Faith is active and visible, not something that occures "in your heart".

JonHouser
Instant-Gator

Many people quote Eph 2:8 to say that we are saved when we believe, and no action is required on our part. I find this contradictory to other Scripture. I would challenge my opponent to prove that Scripture indicates no action is required on our part to fulfill the faith portion of the passage referenced above. I, on the other hand, will prove that Scripture is very clear that there are certain actions commanded of us before we are united with the cleansing power of the Blood of Christ....

There is no evidence that humans share a common ancestor with apes

Abeceda
IBeatMyMeats

My position is that there is not one piece of evidence in support of the idea that humans share a common ancestor with apes - that can not be interpreted in another way. To clarify my position even further, I shall provide an example. Homology, which is considered evidence of such common ancestry, might equally be evidence of common factory (i.e. that the similarities are not due to a shared ancestor, but a shared maker). If you disagree with this, and believe that you have definitive evid...
