Compared to most politicians, Obama is an okay president

MistyBlue

I would like an atheist to argue that it is possible to win Pascal's Wager and remain an atheist at the same time, but it seems to me that an atheist would not argue this way as it allows for the possibility that God is there and atheism excludes that possibility.. A non-atheist can argue this debate against my position. Please give a sample argument in the comments before I allow you to accept this challenge.

Athiest somet...

First Round will be for acceptance only. Second round will for presentation of arguments (no rebuttals), third and fourth rounds for rebuttals (no new arguments) and fifth round will be for concluding arguments. Evolution will be defined as the process through which older life forms adapted to their environments and slowly became more modern life forms. The world is over 4 billion years old. Young Earth Creationism states that God created the world with life forms exactly as it is today...

Most of the people in...
