Is there evidence for the god of the Bible?

Skywalker900
NKaloms

The rules for this are that you will not post your argument in the first round. The first round is the introductory round for the contenders to get to know who they are talking to. The second round will be the official start of the debate and the third and fourth rounds will be rebuttals. My name is Luke and I have been an atheist for a little over a year. I enjoy reading texts such as the Go Delusion and find that there is not sufficient evidence for any god, and that the Christian god is a g...

The Nintendo Switch currently is a great Console/Handheld Device.

Plebidise
moneymade27

(Previous debate was forfeited by my opponent on round 1.) Alright, this will be more of a casual debate about the thoughts of the Nintendo Switch. I will argue that the Nintendo Switch so far is a fantastic console and a huge step for Nintendo. While the opposition will argue that the Nintendo Switch has a heavy amount of flaws that hinders the Nintendo Switch from being a good console despite its massive success...

It is better to believe in the God of the Bible than to be an Atheist

My position is as follows: If I believe in God and it turns out God did not exist then I don't have to face any accountability for my disbelief. If I am right that the Christian God does exist then eternal awards awaits me when I die and still do not have to face any accountability and do not have to face any judgment. If the atheist is right and there is no God and no afterlife then he or she will not have to face any accountability for not believing in God. Should the atheist be wrong he/s...

Killing animals for their flesh and secretions is unethical.

Wylted

I don't see why this is relevant as it's obvious what I mean by killing. Killing = Cause the death of (a person, animal, or other living thing). I'm reposting this debate as the previous CON executed a complete strawman and dodged the debate by saying that "meat" can be referred to fruits and nuts. Well I'm stating it now that by meat I intend the flesh of animals. Let's not play semantic games as it is an important issue to discuss. Not only it is unethical but it also damages our environme...

I have specific memories of events in history that are now shown to be false or changed. Everyone does.

Below is a questionnaire, please answer, from memory only, all of these in the comments section, and say yes or no whether you choose to accept the debate. I will choose my opponent based on their answers, No cheating! Anyone may answer the questions in the comments section, but most...

Overpopulation exists and is a problem

Masterful
TheUnexaminedLife

I believe overpopulation is currently a big problem. With our current technology we are unable to provide for and sustain such enormous amount of people, while maintaining the health and renewable resources/ species that are on the planet. Round 1: Accept and state your view on overpopulation. Round 2: Give an argument for or against overpopulation. Round 3: rebuttals/closing arguments....

Science leaves no room for free will.

Sakushi
TheUnexaminedLife

I would like to thank my opponent for accepting my challenge. I will be arguing for the Con, in this debate. I do not think that science leaves no room for free will. To begin I will clarify a few definitions. I propose the use of the Webster definitions of the terms. Free Will: "voluntary choice or decision " Science: "a department of systematized knowledge as an object of study the science of theology" Round 1 will be acceptance and clarification of definitions: Round 2 will be the...

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...
