Only an Atheist may accept this debate challenge. There is no ACCEPTANCE round. Okay, good.

Let's assume for a second that God is a myth, and all of the prophets and pastors in the world today are " fake ".

From where do they get supernatural powers to predict the future, make the blind see, make the deaf hear, and make the lame walk?

I've provided videos by an African Prophet called Shepherd Bushiri. The prophecies were given on Live services, and they have all come to pass. How is this Prophet able to make accurate prophecies such as these?

Nigeria mosque bombing prophecy

Tanzania earthquake prophecy

Zambia's presidential election prophecy

Airplane catches fire in America prophecy-

Wheelchair miracle

More (Mosque bombing ) ( Tanzania Earthquake ) ( Plane)


I'm not an Atheist but I probably can still debate this topic. I'm a Christian so I'll provide a Biblical perspective. First of all, though I do believe real supernatural powers exist, many of the "supernatural" we see are simply scams and lies. Nearly every religion has some gifted people who can "make the blind see, make the deaf hear, and make the lame walk". Of course all these religions can't be the truth so there is definitely human deception at work. This is especially true in religions like Hinduism where priests perform "miracles" to capture audiences. This is no less true to Christianity. There are many false prophets and priests who perform false miracles in the name of Christ.

Now to the REAL supernatural powers. God is not the only source of supernatural powers. According to the Bible, Angels and Demons have tremendous power. Of course, Angels ultimately use their powers to carry out the will of God but demons can use their powers to deceive people. Jesus tells that Satan himself can turn to an angel of light to deceive many, So in my opinion, it's naive to think all supernatural powers are the work of God. They are either human deception or demonic power.

That is a very good debate. I have been thinking about this answer for years.

How is this sufficient proof that there is a God, or supernatural phenomena? Have you took into consideration, that he could have possibly been behind the tragic event that happen? If someone is able to predict in detail about some upcoming disaster, that is going to occur. They're either involved or know something we don't. There are many factors we have look for, but the easiest thing to do is,believe that some magical being from some other dimension gave him the the power to predict the future. If that's the case why did he let it happen? In the video it explains it happen 30 days after he said it would. Which is plenty enough of time to do something about it.

You said supernatural powers only come from God.
