IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT THESE ATHEISTS KEEP VOMITING WORDS AND YET NOT ONE HAS ANSWERED MY Q.

Atheists love to live under the delusion that they are the guardians of rationality. But how can they hold this title when they cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If they cannot do this, they are literally ignorant and the ignorant cannot guard anything. SO, BY WHAT METHOD DOES ANY ATHEIST CLAIM TO RATIONALLY KNOW TRUTH FROM FICTION?

Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. I have even put it in capital letters for those to dense to get it. If you are unable or unwilling to answer this question, do not respond to this debate. Likewise, if you do not believe in reality, believe you make it up or deny it is objective or knowable, or if you do not know how to rationally know truth from fiction, do not respond to this debate. If you are terrified of cross-examination or madly in love with red herrings, do not respond to this debate. If you have responded before, do not respond to this debate. After all, if you had nothing rational to say then, you will having nothing rational to say now.

If all you have is "science", do not respond to this debate, for science relies on the your senses and reason, which begs the question of how you know your senses and reason are valid. Perhaps you can tell me, which is fine, but if the way you validate you senses and reason is with your senses and reason, you lose the debate because that is circular reasoning and circular reasoning is not rational.

if you respond in violation of these rules, you automatically lose the debate.

Why do you fool respond without reading the OP. Here, let me quote it for you:

By the rules set in round one it is impossible for anyone let alone atheist to distinguish truth from fiction, reality from imagination. To do anything including post on this website it requires our senses, these senses have been outlawed in the debate thus creating a infinite distortion between reality and make believe. It is because of this reason that we must assume our own senses are valid in this debate. With our senses back in play so to is science, science being our way of learning how the world around us works. It is science that anyone including atheist use to rationally describe truth from fiction.

Again, this moron did not properly read the OP. I did not say senses were outlawed, I said they are aa non-answer if you cannot validate them because, otherwise, you are simply begging the question. This poser loses simply because he unable or unwilling to read.

My opponent says that science is not allowed because one cannot verify their own senses. Our sense is what we use to create our answers due to our only reliance on them. Because our answers are created from our senses they can't be a non answer. All this combined is what creates the validity of science and allowing us to dictate fact from fiction.

How funny that this fool does not even understand what begging the question is and asserts as "fact" something that is not empirical. You atheists really are dumb as a box of rocks.

In conclusion.......
I'm not a atheist. One doesn't have to be a atheist to answer how a atheist claims to know truth from fiction.

The atheist knows truth from fiction by the size of the words used. Like Pinocchio"s nose the words of a fiction will always grow bigger, and bigger.
