God is real.
Debate Rounds (4)
Ok, thanks Con for this debate.
There were no definitions provided for the terms of the resolution in this debate, so I shall supply my own.
god - a deity.
real - actually existing as a thing or occurring in fact.
I affirm that god is real, but I also feel like I should explain the particular god in which I believe, antithetical to what you may read in my profile, because my definition of god was not very expansive.
You see, I'm what people call a heliolater, because I practice heliolatry by worshiping the sun; the sun is in fact the deity in my religion.
heliolotry - worship of the sun.
Con clearly has some issues with this:
"I believe that the concept of God is false, mainly because of a lack of evidence."
You may be able to look outside, up into the sky, and see god right now...if not, wait 12 hours or so; he'll come back.
But Con demanded evidence within this debate, so here's what I got.
I have felt god's presence and influence, every time I've gone outside on a godly day.
God is observable by anyone/anything on earth that can detect god's radiation; we orbit god, it provides us with light/radiation, and god's radiation allows plants to produce food so that we may eat plants and enjoy their oxygen.
So I affirm that god is real.
I maintain that the god of heliolatry is real.
Con has a question for me:
"Do you believe that the sun has a mind and is consciously controlling the universe?"
I doubt that a mind could exist in such hot temperatures, I mean, even metals on god are gases.
Besides, my deity doesn't have to control the universe.
My deity needs to be the focus of our worship in heliolatry in order to qualify as a god in this debate.
As far as I can tell, Con concedes that god is real.
"We don't have any differing views here, we simply refer to the sun differently, you call it a God and I do not."
We don't have any differing views?
Ok, so then god is real, and we don't have any differing views here.
To me, this is a concession that a god, the sun, is real.
Therefore I affirm.

Reasons for voting decision: Con presents no definitions. Pro defines a deity as a deity. The Sun falls under this definition. Pro claims that the Sun is real. Con never challenges Pro's definitions nor his argument that the Sun is real. Therefore, Pro's burden is fulfilled due to the fact that Con could never dispute his definition or his argument.
