"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...

Religion is like extra credit.

I believe that it is like extra credit. If you choose to believe in god and he turns out not to be real. Oh well. You still lived and you didn't really loose anything. If he does end up to be real, then you are welcomed into this thing or way of life that has you so interested in your religion....

Existence of God

Hagrid
Secular_Mike

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. For example my existence cannot be explained without reference to my parents. Therefore if all parts of the universe are contingent then it follow that the universe is contingent. So it fol...

God will let you go your own way all the way to Hell

LifeMeansGodIsGood
Equalityman

The Challenge title says it all for the first round argument. God will let you go to Hell. If you think God won't let you go to Hell, please tell me why. "God does not exist" is not the debate, the debate is not about the existence of God. This debate is about you going to Hell and God not stopping you if you don't care that you are going there.This debate is not about "Hell does not exist" or "God does not exist". This debate is about why God should not let you go to Hell or wh...

God doesn't exist.

Dookieman
Toviyah

First round is for acceptance. Second round is for opening statements. Third round for first rebuttals. Fourth round for second rebuttals and concluding remarks. Pro will argue that God doesn't exist and Con will argue that God does exist. God will be defined as the omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent, eternal creator and sustainer of the universe. Omnipotent means all powerful. Omniscient means all knowing. Omnibenevolent means all loving. Good luck! (:...

Can God create a rock so big he can't lift it, or not create the rock? either, not @ same time

linate
Domr

Can an Omnipotent God create a rock he cannot lift? it is said that If one answers yes to the question, then God is therefore not omnipotent because he cannot lift the rock, but if one answers no to the question, God is no longer omnipotent because he cannot create the rock. my position is that he can do one or the other, at different times, but he can't do both at the same time. and, that he can't do both at the same time doesn't disprove God as omnipotent. the solution is to say that God...

Beings do not have the ability to change their futures.

GeminiContractor
Aerogant

From the beginning, far before its existence, a being's destiny is set in stone. They do not decide their fate, nor do they change it, as they are only capable of making the decisions they consider optimal. Even if they rely on other participants in their choices, such as a coin, the result will still have been set in stone. The outcome of the coin toss is decided by many conditions, but the specific conditions that were there when the coin was tossed will produce a set outcome. Their re...
