Does God Exist?

jesussaves
SocialistAtheistNutjob

As a Christian, I believe that the God of the Bible exists. Let's start with why I believe in some type of god. Even if you believe in the Big Bang, you know the universe is not eternal. There is a beginning and everything that has a beginning has a cause. Also, you can tell everything is intelligently designed. If I paint a picture, do I assume it happened by natural processes or that it was done by an intelligent mind? Which is more logical? Also, morality. Let me make this clear: I am not say...

malmoore30

I am redoing this debate because my last opponent forfeited. For this debate, we're going to be talking about an atheist who is not anti-religion or an extremist. You can't use any arguments like "They would outlaw religion/destroy freedom of religion," maybe "They would shove their beliefs onto the nation," or "It's against the pledge." All of these are either slippery slope or just stupid arguments. Setup:Round 1- AcceptanceRound 2- Arguments/Rebuttals

Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Opening arguments Round 3: Rebuttal Round 4: Rebuttal Round 5: Rebuttals and Conclusions...

However, it is important that we discuss ideas over identities; embracing identities while discussing ideas. Think with your mind; color your words with your heart. The people here understand that we all need to express these emotions... it's a natural side of humanity. We would never want to prevent anyone f...
