God doesn't exist.

Dookieman
Toviyah

First round is for acceptance. Second round is for opening statements. Third round for first rebuttals. Fourth round for second rebuttals and concluding remarks.

Omnipotent means all powerful. Omniscient means all knowing. Omnibenevolent means all loving. Good luck! (:...

The resolution states "rational...

Can a person prove their existence?

RomanCatholic
Brian123456

I am arguing that a person cannot prove that they exist in the physical world. By physical world I mean that they must exist in physical form and NOT in the imagination or mind of a being. If my opponent is unable to prove his existence than he will be defeated. Rules: My opponent will use each round in order to give as many "proofs" for his existence as he/she wishes. I will use the beginning of each round to rebuke the his/her proofs. In the 2nd post of the 5th round my opponent is not...

Commondebator

To my opponent: Please keep this respectful and calm. I don't want to offend anyone, my goal is to understand your position more thoroughly...that said, let's go. My position on abortion is that it is morally wrong. I'd like to start by addressing a few common arguments made by pro-choicers. 1. We're pro-choice, not pro-death. Basically, we're in favor of everyone deciding for themselves rather than there being a strict definition of what you can and can't do. a) I'm not saying you ha...

General Relativity Implies that God does not Exist

Miles_Donahue
Sargon

For some time, Sargon has contended that general relativity supplies an argument for atheism; that is to say, implies that God does not exist. Him and I have debated this issue else where, and I am more convinced than ever that general relativity implies no such thing. But for the convenience of DDO users, a debate here would be helpful. First round is for Sargon to present his argument as Pro. For an equal number of rounds, Sargon will not be posting a reply on round four. Plagiarism...

Atheism is a religion

Elektergeld
Secular_Mike

Atheism, or any unmotivated claim that God doesn't exist, is to be considered a religion because it states something we don't have evidences for. Religious is any thought that implies believing without proofs....
