A god exists
Debate Rounds (3)
A god exists. I will be Pro.
All other rounds: anything goes
Astrolatry is the worship of stars and other heavenly bodies as deities, or the association of deities with heavenly bodies. The most common instances of this are sun gods and moon gods in polytheistic systems worldwide.
Their gods are stars, planets, and moons.
Their chosen god exists.
Animal worship (or zoolatry) refers to rituals involving animals, such as the glorification of animal deities or animal sacrifice. When a god is respected or worshipped by means of a representative animal, an animal cult is formed (Teeter et al., 2002, p. 355).
They worship a chosen animal as a god.
Their chosen god exists.
"One that is worshiped, idealized, or followed: "
-Michael was doing so much and so well, I found myself just wanting to stop and watch him -- and I was playing," said teammate John Paxson.
-"I didn't think anyone was capable of doing what Michael has done to us," marveled Celtics ace Larry Bird. "He is the most exciting, awesome player in the game today. I think it's just God disguised as Michael Jordan."
Reggie Miller referred to Michael Jordan as "Black Jesus".
The commercials of the 1990's foccused on the slogan,"I wanna be like Mike."
Here Michael Jordan receives a standing ovation in China.
A god exists.
Con admits a god may exist by any "god" definition in round 1.
"Though there may be a chance there is a 'god'..."
"I could say this pencil is a god, but does that make it a god?"
Con is going with this definition of a god:
"the most common definition and is seen as most people as a supernatural being with power over nature."
Here is an example of a supernatural being showing off this power-
Secondly, you start giving sources for pointless information, I could hardly understand your argument from lack of opinions and information, and most importantly, sense. Your argument makes no sense and you don't go on to explain your quotes, to me it seemed as if you were saying Micheal Jordan was "Black Jesus" but if you think one quote from a person makes that Micheal Jordan a god, then you need to get your facts straight. Moreover, there is a clear difference between, idealizing a celebrity and then saying they are a god, it's pure rubbish, like your argument.
Yes, I do say a go MIGHT exist, and emphasize on the might, may I say, and so what?! I'm an agnostic atheist, a stupid person keeps a closed mind, a clever one is open to new ideas, this does no mean I'm gonna start making Micheal Jordan my god.
If your saying, anyone can give anything the great title of a god, like a pencil, then I'm finding it pointless reasoning with you. A god, if there is such a thing, (remember the IF may I say so you don't start using this against me), is a high status, not to be given to pointless things such as a pencil.
I watched half of http://youtu.be...... and am seriously questioning if your actually joking. I'm just confused, please explain your points because if you think that fat guy in a Jesus suit is actually a supernatural being, then please go to your nearest hospital, because your going mad. You can SEE the planks under the water and it's obvious the guy in the wheelchair is an actor, and a very bad one too.

Reasons for voting decision: Tied for most- I will give Pro spelling and grammar due to less grammar and spelling errors. Con failed to put down all of Pro's arguments, some of Pro's arguments were still sustained. For the reason that Pro had some arguments undefeated, he will win more convincing arugments.
