PhilosophicalMan

Pro

Rules

1) Con must argue in favor of the resolution that God indeed, definitely does not exist.

2) No trolling.

3) Con must type in "I shall not make any further arguments as agreed upon" in Round 5.

Failure to follow these rules will result in a 7-point forfeiture.

Definitions

God: An omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent being who created the Universe and can transcend linear time (ex. Experiencing being 35 years old, just to find that after, you are 5 yrs. old) (Which occurs at the horizon of a black hole).

By using 'may,' the con side becomes not winnable unless he single-handedly proves atheism is the only correct religion. Because may can be used to the smallest extent:

I *may* be kidnapped by aliens and shipped to Pluto.

It is an astronomical chance, but may happen.
