How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?
Debate Rounds (5)
Answering this question is the sole purpose for this debate. 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.
That is what you are doing. Since I am posting the first argument, I dont really knoweexactly what you will do. Maybe you will post an actual argument. Also, you said no using science. That is stupid but fine. For you, no using the bible. There is NO evidence proving that 'god' wrote it, rather than anyone else.
I cannot speak for anyone else, but this is how I know truth from fiction; I have not seen any CONCLUSIVE evidence. As I said earlier, It doesnt fall on me to prove that god isnt real, so dont try that. So you are probably wondering now, if Im not going to argue, why am I here? Right. So it falls on you to prove that god is real, and I will try to prove your arguments wrong.
good luck in the debate.
These fools are so obtuse.
Also, how do you know that what you read in my argument was actually what I typed? After all, "how you know your senses and reason are valid."
If you dont give me a legit argument next time I am dropping out.
by the way, obtuse? No one says that.
Your stupidity rofls my waffles
One last chance to answer the Q before you auto-lose the debate, though I will rephrase for your tiny mind:
How do you know that anything you claim to be truth is actually true and no fiction?
HERE IS HOW I KNOW: There is no proof otherwise. That is it. Like most atheists (I think, I don't entirely know what they believe) I am open to new beliefs, but only if there is proof, and I have seen no proof proving that god is real in any religion.
PS I don't think this debate is real, how can you trust your senses and reasoning?
Can I please have an intelligent atheist answer this very simple Q?
also, either you are being dumm or I am not understanding the question. Having the word atheist in the title implies that this is about god.
please restate the question, and stop being more obtuse than my elbows.
youaresodumm forfeited this round.

Reasons for voting decision: It was clear in round 1, that Pro was required to answer the question, "how do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?" Con even said it was the sole purpose of the debate. Pro did not answer the question, and therefore loses on arguments. If anything about this RFD is unclear, feel free to ask me. I'm happy to expand on it.
