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.

Voters must have at least 2,500 ELO to vote on this debate. Debaters have 72 hours to post their arguments, with 4 rounds, and 10,000 charac...
