God Can Gain Knowledge While Being Omniscient

Rational_Thinker9119
zmikecuber

The burden of proof will be shared. I will be arguing that there is no explicit contradiction in God gaining knowledge while still being omniscient by definition, like some may think. My opponent will argue it is a contradiction for God to gain knowledge if he is omniscient, because if God knows all there is to know already, then he cannot know more. God For...

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This debate entitled: This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts are Immoral. This is ROUND 3 of WODC hosted by edeb8 and larztheloser.

The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no refutations will be allowed in the first argument. 2. The first round is for rules, orders, definiti...

Religion is like extra credit.

I believe that it is like extra credit. If you choose to believe in god and he turns out not to be real. Oh well. You still lived and you didn't really loose anything. If he does end up to be real, then you are welcomed into this thing or way of life that has you so interested in your religion....

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. Pro will argue that God doesn't exist and Con will argue that God does exist. God will be defined as the omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent, eternal creator and sustainer of the universe. Omnipotent means all powerful. Omniscient means all knowing. Omnibenevolent means all loving. Good luck! (:...

Both substance and style should be considered when voting. First round is acceptance. I'd like to thank my opponent for accepting this debate. Good luck....

Life Means God is Good

Kaynex

I accept the BOP in this debate, and will probably lose because most people will not concede to the fact that God is good. Most people will say God is not good because He does not give them what they want.......but the truth is, God does give everybody what they want. People tend to want the wrong things. The first thing we need is to be saved from dying. God is trying to save everybody, but most people want the wrong things so God lets them have it and that is not good.......but God is goo...
