Pro

An objectively reliable standard is a standard that is reliable regardless of any human being's or group of human beings' opinion about it.

Any and all standards that don't adhere strictly to God's standards are necessarily concocted by a fallible human being or a group of fallible human beings, and are therefore merely the subjective opinions of fallible human beings as opposed to being objectively valid standards: Therefore any and all such ungodly human standards cannot possibly be objectively reliable.

Therefore, any and all conclusions not in strict adherence to God's standards that anyone may posit in regards to any sphere of life are necessarily mere subjective opinions, and are therefore necessarily objectively unreliable conclusions.

This principle holds and applies with equal force without exception in all existent spheres of life, including, but not limited to:

- The sphere of Factual Knowledge about God
- The sphere of Science
- The sphere of Conclusive Truth
- The sphere of Cosmology
- The sphere of Affairs-of-State
- The sphere of Religion
- The sphere of Physics
- The sphere of Biology
- The sphere of Rationality
- The sphere of Politics
- The sphere of Argumentation & Debate
- The sphere of Logic
- The sphere of Morality
- The sphere of Selfless Service to Others
- The sphere of Philosophy
- The sphere of Human Rights
- The sphere of Material Cognition
- The sphere of History
- The sphere of Law
- The sphere of Economics
- The Sphere of Personal Authority
- The sphere of Fighting
- The sphere of Physical Well-being
- The sphere of Mental Well-being
- The sphere of Sense Perception
- The sphere of Mental Cogitation
- The sphere of Intellect
- The sphere of Personal Identity
- The sphere of Spiritual Cognition
- The sphere of Compassion
- The sphere of Psychology
- The sphere of Mathematics

"any and all standards that don't adhere strictly to God's standards are necessarily concocted by a fallible human being or a group of fallible human beings, and are therefore merely the subjective opinions of fallible human beings as opposed to being objectively valid standards: "

Firstly. prove the existence of god, since until you do so it is merely your subjective opinion, and the burden of proof rests up on you to do so., since you are making the positive claim.

Secondly. The most objectively reliable standards in life, that actually exist, would most likely be the standards of science, of reason, logic and evidence. They most certainly the most objectively reliable standards in life when it comes to pursuing truth, since they have allowed us to climb out of the cave of ignorance and superstition, and fly to the moon, raising modern civilization and bettering the world in countless ways.
There is a reason you go to a hospital and not to a church when you're sick, it's because science works, planes fly, and those are the most objectively reliable standards we have....

Lastly. Your whole, largely incoherent argument about existent spheres of life simply fails miserably because you have no reason to believe firstly god exists, and needless to say your own specific version of that god, and furthermore you it seems make the claim to know what god is thinking of, or demands of us...a claim which no mere mortal ape should ever make...

So to sum up that last bit, in the words of Carl Sagan " Extraordinarily claims require extraordinary evidence." of which you have none at all, and all of it is on my side.

Thus if you value logic and evidence, vote for me, vote Con.

I can't accept this debate, Purushadasa has set the criteria markers in a way that I can't accept.

Oh sorry I forgot I'm a two legged animal not worth debating, or this is some straw man fallacy and even though Purushadasa loses all his debates this site is rigged right?
