Perfect Symmetry in Honeycombs is Proof of God

Purushadasa
AveryGaleson

HONEYBEES' PREFECT HEXAGONS Did you know that honeybees design the most perfect hexagons known to man? It"s very difficult to produce a hexagon in which all six sides are exactly the same length and all six angles are exactly equal. In fact, it has proven impossible for human beings to do so. Throughout history, the world"s greatest artists and mathematicians alike have always been frustrated in their efforts to produce the perfect hexagon shape. Some are able to produce better ones than o...

God-realization is Intellectually Superior to the Belief in atheist Dogma

Purushadasa
RoderickChinaski

Regarding the atheistic inability to apprehend certain facts about God's position as the source for existence, it is impossible for any entity to be the source for any quality unless it possesses that quality itself. No food that contains no iron, for example, can possibly be a source of iron. Similarly, no entity that contains no personal characteristics, no intellectual phenomena such as logic or reason, no love, and no life of its own, three qualities that the believer in atheist Dogma believ...

SCIENCE = GOD'S PERSONAL PROPERTY (PROOF of GOD)

Purushadasa
JediDude

P1: Without God, nobody could make an objective cognitive distinction between performing the scientific method correctly and performing it incorrectly. (Without God, any cognitive distinctions that we may make would necessarily amount to mere subjective opinions, not objective facts. The scientific method deals with objective facts as opposed to dealing with subjective opinions, and actually, subjective opinions have no place in the scientific method. The field of Logic is also the purview of...

RANDOM = a MYTH That Doesn't Exist in Reality

Purushadasa
SolispsisticMind

Preamble: So-called "randomness" is a myth -- it has never happened in the past, it is not happening now, and it shall never happen in the future -- it is an existential impossibility. Prove me wrong and win $5,000.00: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDAvulwtmvU Formal Argument: P1: Absent a concrete and confirmed demonstration of true randomness in reality, randomness cannot be established to exist in reality. P2: True randomness has never enjoyed any concrete and confirmed...

TIME CONSTANCY = PROOF of GOD

Purushadasa
ambivalent

Preamble: Time continues moving forward at a constant rate no matter what we do: But why? Formal Argument: P1: Without God, there could be no concrete basis for time constancy. (There is nothing in existence other than God that could ensure time constancy. The only way to successfully refute this Premise would be to posit some entity other than God that could somehow ensure time constancy -- and then demonstrate that such a posited entity actually does ensure time constancy)....

God exists.

Ockham
BrianCBiggs

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 premises that we h...

SUCCESS in the SCIENTIFIC METHOD PROVES THAT GOD NECESSARILY EXISTS

Purushadasa
cakerman

Preamble: Without God, there could be no science: Without God, the believer in atheist Dogma could have no rational expectation of constancy over time in any of the Laws of Nature, nor could he have any rational expectation of uniformity over time, anywhere in the universe -- both of which would be required in order to successfully complete the scientific method and reach any rational scientific conclusions about the universe. If God did not exist, then all of the Laws of Nature observed i...

Proof of God Via Observation

Purushadasa
BrettBoelkens

The fact that the believer in atheist Dogma is unable to observe God at this particular moment in time proves nothing about God's factual existence or about His factual characteristics -- it only proves that the believer in atheist Dogma's chosen method for observing God is inferior to that of the innumerable Theists, who have indeed observed God and His factual characteristics. Your inability to observe any particular person does not prove that the other person somehow does not exist, an...
