Does God Exist?

djdipretoro
123456789123456789

Round 1 is to accept the debate. The debate officially starts in the second round. I wish I could put this under philosophy and religion, but that is not possible. Anything goes, pretty much. For the record, I will be using a presuppositional apologetic approach to this topic. Round 1: acceptance Round 2: opening arguments Round 3: rebuttals Round 4: rebuttals and defense Round 5: closing statements...

There is no unchanging, separate self.

Strycora
PhilK

First round for acceptance only. The feeling of being an individual separate from ones environment is inevitably found to be illusory. There is no core to being, no "observer" or "soul" that continues from life to life, or even, from moment to moment. All things are subject to change, and there is no unchanging substrate to this change. Indeed, "essence" is an illusory notion....

Rubikx

Early scientists once held the geocentric position that the Sun orbited the earth. Later, Darwin introduced the heliocentric model, Earth rotating the sun. This model was excepted and the other discarded and thought prehistoric and pretty much as stupid as the Earth being flat. My question: What PROOF do you have to confirm the heliocentric model? Because I have proof that completely debunks it. And please mention the pendulum....

There are many adults that are ignorant of such benefits and refuse to accept such benefits because they are gullible enough to believe in th...

Lukas8
akhlakm

The first round is only to accept the debate. This debate can also go a bit of topic, if needed. I would like to say that its unpredictable how aliens look like and why aliens wouldn't do "invasions, attack, parasitizing..." My opponent should explain why he/she believes that we are related to them, that they are invading us or any other "ET" topic in this way....

The Christian God is personal and not merely philosophical

Truth_seeker

I argue that you cannot empirically or logically prove that God exists, but that it has to come from divine revelation or a desire to form a relationship. I will present evidence for my views. First round acceptance...
