Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.
Zaradi

Con

Okay, let's do this. 1 round debates FTW!

Dictionary.com[1] has two different, applicable definitions for the word 'fool'.

Definition number 1: a professional jester, formerly kept by a person of royal or noble rank for amusement: the court fool.

This is false. No court jester's exist any more (there modern counterparts being stand-up comedians). And since there are Christian stand-up comedians, then this point falls.

Definition number 2: a person who has been tricked or deceived into appearing or acting silly or stupid: to make a fool of someone.

Lolz @ this picture, perfect definition of what a Christian looks like.

Next, he tries to take a quote from the Bible to illustrate how atheists must be fools, but this quote doesn't give him any sort of offense in this round for a few reasons;

1. It presupposes the existence of God, making it unacceptable evidence for this debate.
2. It's impossible for us to say something in our hearts, as the heart has no capabilities for speech. We can't even THINK something in our heart, as our heart lacks the capabilities for thought. So this quote is absolute babbeling nonsense.

With his sole sentance torn apart, I have clearly shown that Atheists are not fools, but rather the definitions for fools better meet Christians than Atheists. Obvious win for con is obvious.

Reasons for voting decision: Obvious win is obvious. Conduct - Pro made a rude and childish assertion without any argumentation behind it. Spelling and grammar - Pro said "hath" which is no longer of valid grammatical function. He should have used "has." Arguments - Con deliciously demolished Pro's asinine remark. Sources - Con used a source.
