Can an atheist defend the basic idea behind the Declaration while still maintaining his/her worldview? Sorry, I guess you have to ta...

Forfeiting is not an automatic win although it will hinder your chances. 5. Biased voting will not be tolerated. 6...

And when women go into labor and have children when they come back there male counterparts will have...

As pro(my opponent) will be for a high probability of God or Gods existence.( no particular God or Gods must be argued, though my knowledge of religion is very limited outside of Christianity and Greek Mythology) I will not ask for scientific data for the existence of God or gods, but I do ask that you use reasonable logic and/or math.
