Hello

I'm an agnostic. I have been for several years now. I don't deny the possibility of a god, but I see it as unlikely. Your job is to try and convince me to believe in a god, and more importantly your religion.

You will start by making your argument in the first round. And in Round 4 you will simply say something unrelated to the argument.

So convince me. Why should I believe in your religion?

People seem to love insurance. They can't seem to get enough of it. Going a church is a cheap insurance policy. You get to meet and socialize with new members and work together to create a stronger community. My churches help those that fall upon bad times as well, exceeding the level of help the government provides. I'm a Catholic, but I'm sure plenty of religions will work in the same way, verses going through life alone.

I'm leaning that way already so convincing me there is no god wouldn't be the best. If you want you can accept, but I would rather see a religious persons point of view

What about convincing you there is no God?

Reasons for voting decision: Con set the debate up such that the burden of proof was on Pro, which he accepted. He was unable to fulfill that burden, so I have to give arguments to Con.
