Hello! Today I will argue that Con deserves to win this debate.

So vote for them, and make both of us happy. (by the way, the actual winner is whoever loses the debate. If Con can convince you to vote me as winner, then he wins. If I can convince you to vote Con as winner, then I win.)...

Also because I haven't done a God debate in a while.Definitions:God: The sentient necessary eternal (has always existed and held his properties) omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent being that was the efficient cause of the contingent universe.Probably: Almost certainly; as far as one knows or can tell.
