Rules/ Stipulations

God will be defined as the tri-omni (omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent) creater of the universe. The burden will be on Pro to demonstrate that God exists. My burden is to undermine the arguments for God's existence, and/ or the support for them. The first round will not be for acceptance, as my opponent will make his/ her opening argument in the first round. However, in round 4, Pro must simply put:

"No argument will be posted here as agreed."


Juan_Pablo

Pro

Well, I guess I'm already forfeiting this debate, as I was planning on arguing that an omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient God exist - but not one that is omnibenevolent!

I also don't believe that the literal biblical God exist.

I therefore forfeit this debate.

Are we debating just the essence of it. Essentially that an infinite set of things can not exist within reality,so the set of past events cannot be actually infinite. This would also be debating under the assumption that we know the universe itself is not infinite, it had to have a beginning. Also may I expound on this and use some fundamental points within apologetics

C- cosmological argument

O - order(essential the fine tuning argument)

S - Specified Complexity( This was essentially what Dawkins debated in Blind Watchmaker)

M - Morality

O - Objectivity( there are objective principles within science and nature than can not be ignored)

S - Solitary impact ( the direct impact Jesus has had on society)

If you are arguing strictly the cosmological argument, it will be a pointless debate. You would be essentially arguing a deist
