My opponent will be arguing they are incompatible, that is that they cannot both exist without contradiction. My opponent will have the burden of proof in this debate since he is...

Hagrid

First round is opening, second rebuttals and third closing. As I am suggesting God exists the burden of proof is on me. When looking at the universe we can see that all the entities that we know of are contingent in the sense that their existence cannot be explained without reference to another entity.

"unlimited paradox" - an ever present unlimited force does not exist

dairygirl4u2c

"unlimited paradox" - an ever present unlimited force does not exist. in another matter of speaking i am saying "the unlimited does not exist" can the unlimited limit itself? if not, it is not unlimited. if so, it is not unlimited. also, reality as far as we know it indicates that anything that might be 'unlimited' is limited by the laws of logic, as far as we know. thus, we can see by probing a few questions about what it means to be unlimited, that it does not really exist, at least i...
