God exists.

Ockham
Moelogy

The resolution is that God exists. Pro will be arguing that God exists, while Con will be arguing that Pro has not established that God exists.By accepting this debate, Pro agrees that they have the burden of proof to establish that it is objectively more likely than not that God exists. The rules for assessing this are the standard rules of logic, including the rules of deductive and inductive inference. For example, a deductive argument must be deductively valid and have premi...

Humbled pride is great and can be explained in three words. GOD, Bless, America. Nothing wrong with them and they bring confidence to you and others. The word pride just refers to being proud and having a great feeling of accomplishment or feeling of self satisfaction....

God DOES exits, but not in the way you think it does

Smerdyakov
Ali1

Hello my friends! This statement should be a surprise, taking into account that it comes from an agnostic. Do I believe in an anthropomorphic, sentimental being who created us all out of benevolence? No. But things get deeper. Although I currently have a PhD in Algebraic Topology philosophy always fascinated me as well. Through many years of intense research and thought I found my Holy Grail - positivism. But not in the sense of baroque positivism, oh no, something MUCH MUCH better came to my...

Proof of God Via Existential Dependence

Purushadasa
AmazingPastafarian

God has revealed many facts about Himself in various scriptures all over the world. One of the things that He has revealed about Himself, in various languages, is that He is the one and only Existentially Independent Entity -- that He exists eternally, without ever having not existed, that He requires no creator, and has no cause preceding Him, logically or temporally. He has stated this in many different ways, in many different languages. He has also stated, in many different languages,...

Proof of God Through Revelation

Purushadasa
tahirimanov

God has revealed many facts about Himself, and He definitely knows the facts about Himself better than anybody else could, just as you know the facts about yourself better than I could, and I know the facts about myself better than you could. I can correctly and logically inform you of the fact that I am a person living in the United States, that my immediate family is also from the United States, and so on. I have chosen a particular medium to communicate these facts, and it is a written med...

Proof of God Via Dependent Reality

Purushadasa
DavitosanX

1. A dependent real (something real and caused by another) exists. 2. The dependent real's cause must also be real, and must either be dependent, or independent (not caused by another). 3. The dependent cannot be the sole cause of the dependent. 4. Therefore, the cause must include an independent real (something real and not caused by another). 5. Therefore, an independent real exists. God's scriptures reveal the fact that this Independent Real is none other than God himself. If...

God's Standards = the Only Objectively Reliable Standards in Life

Purushadasa
imsmarterthanyou98

An objectively reliable standard is a standard that is reliable regardless of any human being's or group of human beings' opinion about it. Any and all standards that don't adhere strictly to God's standards are necessarily concocted by a fallible human being or a group of fallible human beings, and are therefore merely the subjective opinions of fallible human beings as opposed to being objectively valid standards: Therefore any and all such ungodly human standards cannot possibly be objecti...
