Give me one good reason for not believing in God
Debate Rounds (5)
Though if the contender gives me one unrefutable good reason to not believe in God then, I may reconsider my belief.
So contender, give me one good reason of why you do not believe in God's existence. (This debate will contain 5 rounds - may the best human win!)
Thus, we can see that religions would naturally evolve over time as a means of simplifying the task of parenting. The ruling classes need religion for similar purposes. If you can create an internal prison of the mind (religion) than, you have less need to build expensive external prisons.
"God doesn't exist because God is a man made phenomenon."
Or... a devine-phenomenon,
Let me simplify this: there are endless mysteries finding favour with the fact that this world was designed.
This universe would have 'never' been like this:
-Without there being some kind of a being to think and create in order of importance.
-Without at least understanding what you're trying to do.
(Yet this universe obeys an astronomical number of rules, i.e. perfect atmosphere, food catering for the stomach, a man's sperm going into a woman in order of reproduction etc. etc. [In fact, these mysteries can never be all completed in a list, yet doesn't this prove the glory of God?])
Therefore, no, God is not a man made phenomenon because, we have good reasons (like the endless mysteries) to believe that this world was designed by a Designer [God].
"The creator is usually a person who is in charge of, or is a ruling class person with responsibilities."
There my contender, says in other words; that we have to 'see' God as supreme and ruler of this world, to claim him as ruler.
When, if God existed here on earth:
-'Belief' in God would not be required because, we would see him with our own eyes in the flash. Meaning, that there would be no more problems for us to glorify God with. Problems give a meaning to life otherwise life is meaningless. God has always given us this opportunity to glorify him, for example, the forbidden fruit in tree in the garden of Eden. Therefore, belief in God gives us the opportunity to glorify God and, this is the greatest opportunity ever for men! Amen!
-People (not deserving God's generousity because of their constant seeking of immorality, jealousy, greed etc.) would be to demanding and, God would be the government and only government of the world. And the cue of people's requirements from God, would be infinite. When they could easily seek him in spirit since he is God, not the government. That is why we must worship God in truth and in spirit! Amen!
(Etc. Etc. [Like I said, my aim is simplification])
So by the grace of God, it seems to me that I have defeated my contender in just the second round, since I asked for one good reason in which my contender gave me an empty reason.
Contender, the biblical scriptures quote; this foolish plan of God for people to worship God 'in spirit' [prayer] (and in truth) is wiser than the wisest of human plans.
So contender if God himself were to be seen on the flesh here on earth, give me one greatest plan for people to glorify God than his foolish one? (Because the foolish plan of God - the one of worshipping and serving him without even seeing him, is certainly better than glorifying him only with your job, invention or sport etc.)
My opponent is obviously going to carry on with an endless rendition of bible quotes and other related nonsense. So that's it for me!
Note - Religious people have a dislike of logic. I don't know why they tolerate them on this website. They have nothing to contribute to the sum total of human knowledge. lol
[An answer seriously needed from round 2]:
"Contender, the biblical scriptures quote; this foolish plan of God for people to worship God 'in spirit' [prayer] (and in truth) is wiser than the wisest of human plans.
***So contender, if God himself were to be seen on the flesh here on earth, give me one greatest plan for people to glorify God than his foolish one?*** (Because the foolish plan of God - the one of worshiping and serving him without even seeing him, is certainly better than glorifying him only with your job, invention or sport etc.)"
In other words I am saying that, if God truly doesn't exist then, you 'contender' must find a better solution for people to worship God other than the one God has proposed, for that would show that you are wiser than God (and thus, show that God doesn't exist).
So, may you please answer that question.
