question. If Aristotle is mortal then how can he exist?
Numbers exist in our head.
Aristotle Exists in our head
TRUTH exists in our head

Your first premise is, in my opinion, incorrect. There are many examples of non-physical things that exist. Numbers are not physical, yet they exist. The same can be said for thoughts, emotions, and consciousnesses.

I reject your first premise. Something can exist in the spiritual sense without existing in the corporeal or physical sense. Do love or happiness exist?

God exists in the Physical. Or he did, as Jesus Christ. One day, a very REAL and PHYSICAL God will return, this called the rapture.

It's logically valid, but what reasons are there to accept that the premises are true?

Taken from Wiki:

Deductive reasoning, also deductive logic or logical deduction or, informally, "top-down" logic,[1] is the process of reasoning from one or more general statements (premises) to reach a logically certain conclusion.[2]
Deductive reasoning links premises with conclusions. If all premises are true, the terms are clear, and the rules of deductive logic are followed, then the conclusion reached is necessarily true.
Deductive reasoning (top-down logic) contrasts with inductive reasoning (bottom-up logic) in the following way: In deductive reasoning, a conclusion is reached from general statements, but in inductive reasoning the conclusion is reached from specific examples. (Note, however, that the inductive reasoning mentioned here is not the same as induction used in mathematical proofs - mathematical induction is actually a form of deductive reasoning.)

An example of a deductive argument:

All men are mortal.
Aristotle is a man.
Therefore, Aristotle is mortal.

The first premise states that ALL objects classified as "men" have the attribute "mortal". The second premise states that "Aristotle" is classified as a "man""" a member of the set "men". The conclusion then states that "Aristotle" must be "mortal" because he inherits this attribute from his classification as a "man".

Reasons for voting decision: Considering neither side argued very well (Pro made an error in the initial assertion that everything that exists is physical; one's mind very obviously exists, as it allows for rational thought and sentience, but it is not physical at all. Con offered only the bandwagon fallacy as a counter), Both sides had moderately good grammar and spelling, both behaved reasonably, and neither cited any sources. However, because both sides made grave errors in their arguments, the benefit of the doubt goes to the Contender in that regard.

Reasons for voting decision: Con only posits and opinion and fails to make any real argument. Saying that people believe in god is not the same as proving his existence. @Whizkid - why are all your debate one round?
