I accept. I would also like to put out the definition of "myth":

1. a traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or a natural explanation, especially one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature.
2.
stories or matter of this kind: realm of myth.
3.
any invented story, idea, or concept: His account of the event is pure myth.
4.
an imaginary or fictitious thing or person.
5.
an unproved or false collective belief that is used to justify a social institution.

Keep in mind, I am assuming that you are talking about definition 3, 4, and 5

Hi, I do understand the definition of myth. I also understand that it is impossible to prove a negitive, but its also impossible to prove a positive if you dont have any real proof. But there is much in the bible that is incorrect, one example could be Noahs ark. For those of you who dont know the bible says that he fit to of every species in a ark, which is impossible! If one part of the bible is proven not to be true then why should anyone trust any of it?

Second of all, the bible is full of contradictions, here are a few examples:
1 In that count how many fighting men were found in Isreal?
*Eight Hundred Thounsand (2 Samuel 24:9)
*One million, one hundred thousand (I Chronicle 21:5)
2. The Gospels say that Jesus cursed a fig tree. Did the tree wither at once?
*Yes (Matthew 21:9)
*No It witherd overnight (Mark II:20)
3. Dis Judas Kiss Jesus?
*Yes (Matthew 21:19)
*No Judas could not get close enough to Jesus to kiss him ( John 18:3-12)
I just presented many mistakes in the bible, if the bible isnt true, then why should we think that god is reality?

My opponent has made NO arguments at all, he also can not make an argument in this round (Review rules that were presented in round one). Thereby, he should loose this argument. :)

I would like to accept that God is a reality (Pro) for this debate, but how long would I have in-between each round?
