Trajan297

Pro

First round acceptance. One round of debate. I want to debate a deist on deism.
Zephyr8

Con

I accept. Apparently my opponent is up for a quick challenge.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Trajan297 forfeited this round.
Zephyr8

Con

A personal God is contradictory, specifically when organized religion is considered, but there needs to be God for the universe to have been created. I apparently don't need to go any further.

I think it would be more impersonal if he had made a perfect world for us. We would have no need for him. People usually come to God in their darkest moments.

From the perspective of Zephyr8, maybe the god who created the universe and allows natural disasters to happen.

A personal God makes more sense. What kind of God creates such a vasly elaborate and complicated planet and species and ignores it?
