How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
random_noob

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, what atheist can give me a rational way atheists know truth from fiction? Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond...

Prove your own existence as a separate being

THEBOMB
BangBang-Coconut

I will be trying to disprove your existence while you are trying to prove your existence. Everything that is sensed externally is just a physical manifestation of yourself. Everything that is perceived is just subconscious images projected into the outside world. The different people who are all different in some way are just parts of you that want to achieve different goals. Therefore, you are just a projection of my mind and are part of my mind. This means you do not exist as a separate bei...

life is just stupid

Life is stupid. Almost 50yrs old I'm tired of eating,sleeping,working,sex,kids,marriage,tv,jobs etc etc etc etc--it's the same crap everyday and the only real difference is looking in the mirror every morning watching my face get older and my body pain etc. The beauty of our planet is boring too after seeing the same views year after year. There are no answers to Aliens,Bigfoot,God,Agartha etc etc so as I sit and ponder about all that life is I have come to the conclusion it is stupid.there is j...

countzander
TheBunnyAssassin

The claim is that romantic infidelity is not necessarily immoral. Under certain circumstances, there is nothing inherently wrong with cheating on one's partner. I, the instigator, will provide evidence confirming this claim. The contender will attempt to refute the claim by responding to the presented evidence. The first round is for acceptance. The second and third rounds are for debate. The fourth round is for closing statements....

The importance of science and religion

Gabriel7159
junior_dominator

Which has benefited mankind more? Religion or science? Many would agree that science has due to the fact that religion has spawned wars and disagreements across the globe when we can all agree on science because it is a common ground for curiosity among everyone. But...where would science be without religion? Without religion, most scientific studies over the years would have nothing to argue with, thus replacing faith with more theories and even more questions with no answers. This would eventu...

God Debate Switch-a-roo 2

The-Holy-Macrel
PepePopo2012

Con-- Me, I am christian and will argue that god DOESN'T exist. Pro-- You, you must be atheist and will argue that god DOES exist. The purpose is that after I calmed my christian bloodlust against atheism in my first month here i got bored of the god debates that take up about one-fifth to one-seventh of our beloved site. So i want to spice it up a bit. And the christian god as described in the bible (for standard lets use the KJV) is the god we are arguing about existing. I have a...
