God Probably Doesn't Exist.

n7
Envisage

I have picked the dark lord Envisage..I am creating this debate to test 2 new arguments that I'm not 100% sure about. One of them is partly original. Also because I haven't done a God debate in a while.Definitions:God: The sentient necessary eternal (has always existed and held his properties) omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent being that was the efficient cause of the contingent universe.Probably: Almost certainly; as far as one knows or can tell.

Kalam Cosmological Argument for God is Invalid

mecap
J.Kenyon

I will present an argument, which is based on Scott Clifton's (TheoreticalBullshit) argument which attempts to use's William Lain Craig's Kalam Cosmological Argument for God to prove that God does not exist. My opponent should defend the KCA. Cliffton's argument [1] can be summarized as follows: P1: Nothing which exists can cause something which does not exist to begin existing. P2: Given (1), Anything which begins to exist was not caused to do so by something which exists. P3: The unive...

bossyburrito
dylancatlow

DEFINITIONS: Mental: Of or relating to consciousness (a "Mental reality" being one that is contained solely in consciousness Reality: That which is real - that which exists. In this debate, PRO will argue that there must be a non-mental reality, with "mental reality" used as defined above. I do not have to show that there are no mental aspects of reality, but that they must not be all there is in the makeup of reality. The first round will be for acceptance only - I will present...

God Can Gain Knowledge While Being Omniscient

Rational_Thinker9119
zmikecuber

The burden of proof will be shared. I will be arguing that there is no explicit contradiction in God gaining knowledge while still being omniscient by definition, like some may think. My opponent will argue it is a contradiction for God to gain knowledge if he is omniscient, because if God knows all there is to know already, then he cannot know more. God For...

God Exists.

Barcafan99
NKaloms

Burden of proof is on the believer. Definitions: God: "Creator and ruler of the universe, a being omnipotent, omniscient, perfect, and eternal." Exists: " To have objective reality or being." The believer will be arguing that God (any God) exists in objective reality, I will be arguing that he doesn't. Rules: 1. No forfeiting 2. No ad hominems Only accept if you accept the definitions and terms of the debate. Message me if interested....
