How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?

ViceRegent
PowerPikachu21

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...

Edlvsjd
JMCika

Pro will argue for a flat earth, con will argue the spherical side. To avoid semantics involved with the topic, and go over some differences in types of evidence we'll likely discuss, I'll offer some definitions. earth: noun 1.the plane(t) on which we live; the world Flat: For this word we use the general, overall version, specifically for this debate, not a ball that is 25,000 miles in circumference. We all know there are mountains and hills that are far from flat. Spheroid: Ball o...

Universal

M0nK3Y
Demonoid

The universe and humanity are equal, their only difference is age. The human mind can comprehend the universe, as humans are a universal species. To think, we need a heartbeat; to survive, we need numerous things. Humanity is an entirety of numerous things, and the universe is an entirety of numerous things. The cohesive human communicates with the entirety of the universe. Communication is between the cohesive human and the cohesive universe. All factors that sum up to the...

Feminism

chadharnav
HepEbolAids

What feminism has become is a synonym for man hating. In major cases of divorce, men pay alimony. In major cases, for the same crime, a woman on average, will be handed a lower sentencing. How is this fair??? Please respond with only facts and generalizations based upon those facts....

My argument for a god will be more convincing than my opponents.

Unstobbaple
The-Voice-of-Truth

Let's each stick to one main argument for a god/gods and related arguments that we can argue apply in support. Con will open with a single argument and post a null round at round 4. Let me know if you object to my God definition. I'm fine with standard dictionary definitions: God noun 1. (in Christianity and other monotheistic religions) the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being. synonyms: the Lord, the Almighty, the Creator, the Make...

Evolution and science is an oxymoron

Thiest_1998
MagicAintReal

Hi I'm Thiest and I believe that evolution and science is an oymoron because science by definition is a study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. and since evolution does none of those things I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. By evolution I am talking about: Cosmic evolution: the origin of time, space, and matter from nothing in the "big bang" Chemical evolution: all elements "evolved" from hydrogen Stellar evolution:...

Catholics are correct when it comes to the Virgin Mary

hutch976
Rjupudi18

Please note, that this debate is intended to be within the context of Christianity. Opponents will argue for or against Mary (Wife Joseph and Mother of Jesus as found in Christian teachings, traditions, and sacred scripture) having a high importance in the belief system. I am not requiring one to be Christian, or even religious. If you do take up the "con" position, please note I will be using proof texts, arguments, syllogisms, historical arguments, etc. that come from Christian (especially...
