I am the only individual in existence with free will.

TheJuniorVarsityNovice

In this debate I will assert logically that out of all people who roam the earth, I am the sole individual who has free will; does this mean that I believe I am truely the only one? Well not exactly, but in essence, yes. I will show that because each individual lives in his or her own world, that they are logically restrained to accept certain ideas, especially when they experience a certain theoretical situation which logically demonstrates that others are not free but that you...

We see that typically in people that don't play action games, their reaction time [on tests of multitasking] lengthened by 200 milliseconds, which is something like 30 percent," Bavelier says. "But in gamers, it lengthened only by 10 percent" (Trudeau). What the stat is saying is that people how don"t play action games/any games have a slow reaction time when multitasking and that gamers have a faster reaction time to multitasking.

I ask that any contender accepts the definition of rationality given by Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationality In short, rationality implies the conformity of one's beliefs with one's reasons to believe. In other words, for belief in a god to be rational, that belief must be justified by sufficient supporting evidence or reason. Of course, what is sufficient is up for debate... bring it on! - Postscript - As requested (see comments), I will offer a definition of "God".....
