I believe Dumbledore as a much superior, smarter, and powerful wizard than Voldemort because:

He carefully planned Harry Potter's life and made sure he will prevail against Voldemort.
He was more accurate and fearless in his duel against Voldemort.
He was awarded with titles and was trusted by the "good" wizards.
He defeated (or took down) the whole Ministry all by himself when they framed him for announcing Voldemort's return; he proved them wrong. He did it without having to use any Unforgivable Curses compared to Voldemort.
If Dumbledore did not care about using dark spells, he will be more powerful than Voldemort.

its a pleasure to accept the challenge ...
Voldemort was indeed more powerful than Dumbledore. He was younger than him first of all. He was much much more skilled in the Dark Arts than Dumbledore would ever have been. And Dumbledore's defenses could only hold for a little while in the fight at the ministry
if you just consider power and skills Voldemort wins.

Hello thecount! First, thank you very much for accepting.

It is indeed true that Voldemort was much younger than Dumbledore, however, Dumbledore even in an old age (he was a little more powerful when he was younger), he managed to defend himself effectively during their known duel.

I agree that Voldemort managed to escape Dumbledore's defenses. However, Dumbledore managed to block ALL Voldemort's spells. He had the duel quickly organized since the statue of the centaur saved him when Voldemort, without warning, attacked him behind the shield.

It's true that Voldemort grew up with Dark Arts running in his veins. He carried it through the end. However, it does not surprise me that Dumbledore recognized all the Dark Arts that Voldemort performed. Also, since Dumbledore is much older, he has more knowledge of Dark Arts than Voldemort (e..g. He knew that Inferi cannot stand light and heat; he knew Voldemort's horcruxes, etc.)

Voldemort made fun of Fawkes the Phoenix when it saved Harry Potter in the Chamber of Secrets. However, with Dumbledore's phoenix's help, Harry Potter was able to finish Tom Riddle's diary.

During the Battle in the Department of Mysteries, Dumbledore was able to capture almost all the Death Eaters without having to perform an Unforgivable Spell (he only used Anti-Disapparation ropes and simple spells), whereas Voldemort has to use the Imperious Curse, or even the Cruciatus and Killing Curses to capture his enemies.

This is only my opinion. I'll wait for your argument! :)

Ok , this debate is getting intresting ,thanks to you
Voldemort was stronger because he couldn't be killed until his horcruxes were destroyed, which made him immortal; Dumbledore, having no horcruxes, was mortal.
In the matter of sharpness , practical wisdom, age and experience ,
Dumbledore wins because voldermort was arrogant and was very very aggressive
See the situation ... what iis the point in knowing the dark arts if
He does not repels it for sometime
I know that Dumbledore was the only wizard Voldemort feared
Voldemort had made up his personality a long time ago .everyone fears him so it
Doesn't hurt his respect to use dark arts and killing curses
But Dumbledore was. The most respected wizard of all ... he was forced not to use black magic
I am waiting for your point of you.
