Does god exist?
Debate Rounds (5)
There is absolutely NO evidence supporting any god. If there is a god, he's the most horrible, inhumane thing ever. It wouldn't even require a thought for him to make the universe a perfect paradise, yet he prefers this. Why do people assume that there is a god without evidence? Shoudn't we assume disbelief until proven otherwise?
Round 1 will mostly consist of our oppinions and what we think.
Round 2-4 will bring in sources,facts and whatever else to refute the other's argument(s)
Round 5 will have the debators bring in their closing argument.
Is that Asuna from sword art online on your profile picture? But, anyways, yes it's good to have something to believe in and motivate you, but it's bad if you blindly follow it without reason and even go as far to want to change our laws and world to fit that belief. For example all the whacko homophobes against gays because of religion, whackos who hate things like blood transfusions and abortions because of their religion. It's great to have beliefs, but don't blindly follow them and try to change our laws and world because of it."Yet again, this goes back thousands of years in history to the beggining of time" Wait, wait, are you a creationist? There are so many problems with creationism that would make this debate a LOT easier.
People who believe in God are not blindly following him so much as we believe that scientists are right about everything. If we were to say that God created the universe and everything in it. Some of you may argue that the universe was randomly created. A watch. The watch has many parts in it and in order to make the watch work, we must put it together, we must find a watchmaker to put it together. If we put the parts of a watch into a jar and shake it, it will not randomly put itself together. The same laws apply to our universe and God. And religious people are not changing the laws to fit their religion. Technically, gays and homosexual people are changing the law to suit them. About a century ago, the gay and homosexual laws did not exist and it had never existed until recently. If a person was born with no limbs, would he have to make a law that everybody had to have no limbs in order to suit him and therefore, make the world fair? It is a matter of belief and trust in faith.
1. Scientists test things empirically and bring in as many facts as possible, religion on the other hand believes there right and nothing can change that.
2. It may have been randomly created, it may have been some huge matter/antimatter explosion, it could've been the end of the last universe, there's no way to know. The best we can do is speculate what caused the big bang. Don't bring in that stupid "there must be a maker" argument. If there has to be a maker, then why is it your god? Why not Allah, or any other god thats been conceived over human existance?
3. Sorry i shouldn't have said "change laws and the world to fit their religion" but rather "change and make laws and change our world to fit their religion" It's not nearly as catchy, but you get what I mean.
A majority of the people believe in god(s) because they were indoctrinated to believe that, Not out of love and faith that there will be an afterlife. I often find people making this argument when talking about the afterlife, and here's my answer, what was it like for you in 1938? You didn't exist, you weren't anything, you weren't anywhere. Exactly the same for what happens after you die. Don't say there's a phychological study on this, provide links.

People believe in God because of the miracles and his son, Jesus, who was a real person. And Jesus made many miracles and there have also been sightings of Saints and God himself. For more info, click the doobalydoo:
Sigh, as much as I would love to rebuttle your arguments, it's round 5 and time for my closing statements. I feel this debate is incomplete, what do you say? I'll make another debate and invite you to it. Does god exist V2.
