How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?
Debate Rounds (4)
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.
Atheists, if you are saying they are dumber, have been found to be smarter and better at decision making than religious folk as they are not "blinded" by religion and God. As they serve themselves and humanity and not a possible higher being.
Also you are wrong that science relies on senses and reason, theories do, yes, but theories are often wrong. Actual, hard, science is based off proven fact and must be undoubtedly true!
Also I am slightly confused by this debate question, are you saying that as Atheists are different than you they are wrong, as they believe something else, a just as likely possibility, solution to the question of religion, to the world, to life?
Atheists as I have said rationally know truth from fiction like anyone else, they are not always right, it all depends on sense and how they view the world as anyone else, therefore they can be wrong, but so can you!
Finally why did you have to make it a max of 2000 words? It's just a "tiny" bit annoying!
And dude, please do not pretend to speak for science when you are utterly ignorant of it.
You make decisions off your beliefs OK, so does everyone else. These beliefs can be fact or fiction for Athiests, for you, for anyone.
He also loses because he refuses to answer the one Q this debate is about.
I will respond no further to him.
They have the same brain as you, they are the same species as you, they do not have any differences besides in certain beliefs!
