Con

I believe that my opponent cannot convert me to his religion. To win he must convert me to his religion, and believe me, I'm gullible. This is done by (recommendations):

-Provide evidence supporting the existence of a higher being.
-Provide reasoning that science is less important than religion.
-Prove that miracles were not hoaxes.
-Prove that being religious would benefit me.

(Clarification: Only try to convert me to christianity, not Bahai, Unitarian Universalist, etc.)
I thank my opponent in advance. Let the chaos begin.

This challenge is a fallacy.

You're challenging a person to attain a goal that you can raise or lower anytime you want, therefore it is impossible for that person to reach that goal (converting you to Christianity). You will simply keep raising the bar as soon as it it attained.

Exactly, and after I have raised the bar far enough I will know I am converted.

Thanks for hijacking this debate idiot.

No problem, glad I could help! But saying that you will stop raising the bar does not convince me in any way that you will actually do it, and even if I did believe you, it's too late now. You should have said that in the first round.

There has already been a debate like this that went fine, you just had to be a jerk and hijack it. I will now make another debate identical to this. Do not accept it.

Voting all con simply due to the debate being hijacked. Usually wouldn't, but pro doesn't deserve a point.

I want to see what the main arguments are, then refute them, then my opponent refutes them. etc.

So...why accept the challenge if your argument is that the challenge is impossible? :\

I think he means he just wants to see what the general Christian opinion of creationism is.
Or, he just wants someone to try and present a convincing case for Christianity, as none have been done before. I don't know, I'm not in his head.

Its troubling you? So are you trying to refute Christianity or be converted to it?

I don't want an easy win.

@Geo

I see your point, but If I am not convinced by this, I will create another debate. It's just Christianity that has been troubling me the most.

I understand you want an easy win with this debate. Nobody can prove the things you required. I think you really miss the point if you think that people convert to a religion because they are presented with proofs. psyops, not proof is what is needed.
