If God does not exist, then knowledge is not possible. Atheists would disagree. So, I ask a very simple day-1 question about atheist epistemology. How does an atheist rationally know if anything they hold to be true is actually true and not fiction?
Atheism proves nothing, just like other religions prove nothing. We believe in things, but its not backed up by science. Just like every other religion in the world. You could consider atheism just another type of religion. Only that we don't believe in a superior being.
Simple Answer: We Don't...
But if I was forced to give an answer, I would say this. Ok, so the biggest question is why is there something instead of nothing? Religious people would say that god created world, but then... where did god come from? Did he just appear? Why was there god instead of nothing? Does god also have another god? Is this a never ending loop? From what I can tell it is. Multiple inconsistencies with religion just make us "rationally" conclude our beliefs.
And this, folks, is why no rational person would ever be an atheist. This dude just admitted that he knows that he has no rational way of know truth from fiction. For bonus points, can you spot the contradiction? But at least he admits he knows nothing.
The debate is over. You have conceded the issue. And why asking how I do when you have no way of knowing whether what I say is true or not. Before I waste my time teaching you the truth, you to repent of holding a view that makes truth unknowable.
Your round 3 argument seems like a jumble of words formatted together to make me seem like the knowledgeable. But in reality your just as ignorant. Religion also has no way of knowing truth from fiction... and your criticizing atheism for the exact same flaw that religion has? How about you waste your time and tell me the truth, and if I deem that truth good enough I will turn away from atheism?
This dude is hilarious. He says that he has no way of knowing truth from fiction but then makes a whole bunch of truth claims that he sincerely expects me to take seriously. God is right, atheists are unreasoning animals.
Looks like all reason is out of the window, your just trying to resist answering my question... because you secretly know I am right. But if you really don't, then give me a damn answer, how does religion prove that there is a god? To all the religious people who are reading this, there might be god (I'm agnostic, leaning towards atheism). But my opponent, for the past 2 arguments has failed to explain how his side is better. Do you really think that he should win this debate using ignorance and denial?
Give. Me. A. Reason.
"God is right" is not a valid reason
Yes, atheism makes rationality meaningless, which is why rational people reject it. And the point of this debate is for you to tell me how atheists know truth from fiction. You failed by admitting you know nothing. There is nothing left for me to say. You lost the debate.
Reasons for voting decision: Con?s conduct was rude and insulting.
?Before I waste my time teaching you the truth, you to repent of holding a view that makes truth unknowable.? Despite repeated requests for Con to make a coherent argument, no evidence nor reasoning in support of his position was provided for Pro to rebut.
