I challenge Alex Hanson to a debate. I challenge him to try to prove that I am not God (the creator of the universe and everything in it) in a human form. If he is able to prove I am not god, he wins. Simple as that.

Hmm, it appears my opponent has quite the burden of proof on his hands.

He is mistaking me needing to disprove him for himself needing to prove himself.

Since your page says your an atheist, that means you do not believe such a God could exist, thus negating that you would actually believe you are God the creator of the universe.

I will await your epic proof that you are God the creator of the universe.

"Since your page says your an atheist, that means you do not believe such a God could exist, thus negating that you would actually believe you are God the creator of the universe."
I have stated on my page that I am a disbeliever in myself solely for testing your faith in me. As I can see from looking at your page, you believe in me. If you really are the Christian you say you are, you must use your faith to understand the reality that I AM GOD.

Also, I challenged you to prove that I am not god. Your argument is pretty weak thus far while mine is completely solid, considering I completely answered your single statement above.

In conclusion:
I challenged you to prove that I am not God.
You accepted.
This means you must prove I am not god to win the debate.
You have not done this at all.

I will await YOUR epic proof that I am not God, the creator of the universe

Alright, ill give. If you are God, the creator of the universe and everything in it than surely you will be able to answer a few simple questions about your creations.

All numbers must refer and be answered in the human (American) numerical system.
All names of any objects, animals, etc must be answered in the American given names.

1. How many hairs are currently on my head?

2. What are my 4 pets, and what are the breeds/species of said pets?

3. What kind of flowers are currently planted in my back yard, and how many petals are there on all the plants combined?

4. How many blades of grass are currently in my yard?

5. How many blades of grass did i just pull up from my yard?

6. How many freckles are on my face?

7. How many teeth do i have in my mouth?

If you are truly the creator of the universe and everything in it, the all knowing God, than these are easy questions for you, if you cannot answer them correctly than you are not the All powerful all knowing God, creator of the Universe, and the resolution fails.

1. There are currently 110,293 hairs on your head

2. You have no pets, this is a trick question

3. You have no flowers currently placed in your backyard

4. There are currently 9,123,832,190,983,412 blades of grass in your yard

5. You pulled up no blades of grass, this is a trick question

6. You have 23 freckles on your face, many which come in go in regards to the season

7. You have 30 teeth in your mouth

Now that I have successfully answered all of you questions that you have given me, I ask you one favor in return.....
Since I understand your faith in me is weak, it is likely that you will say that I am incorrect regarding many of the answers I have given to you. When you do this, I ask that you SHOW PROOF to all the voters that I was indeed wrong.

In conclusion, my opponent can not prove I am not god, since he currently lacks any evidence which would do so.

My opponent has incorrectly answered every question, thus showing that he is not God, the creator of the universe.

Proofs:

1. You can plainly see by the picture of me on my debate.org profile, that i do not have 110,293 hairs on my head, this was a mere random guess by my opponent who clearly had no idea how many hairs i have on my head.
__________________________________________________________________________________

2. I do have pets, i have 4.

They are:

1. http://i16.photobucket.com...

This is one of my pet dogs, his name is Pippin, he is a pure bred Jack Russel Terrier.

2&3. http://i16.photobucket.com...

These are my pets, my Betta fish and in the lower left corner is my "Golden mystery snail". Their names are Chip (The Betta fish) And Skip (The snail) I took the picture right next to my computer screen that is currently on the "My debates" page, just to prove that they are in fact mine.

4. http://i16.photobucket.com...

And last but not least this is a picture of my other dog Lucy, a Pug.

_________________________________________________________________________________

3. http://i16.photobucket.com...

This is one of my rose bushes, showing clearly that i do in fact have flowers in my back yard.

__________________________________________________________________________

4. My only grass is a patch that's about 10 feet by 10 feet, which clearly there are not over 9 trillion blades of grass in.

________________________________________________________________________
5. http://i16.photobucket.com...

As you can see i pulled up 5 blades of grass from my yard.

___________________________________________________________________________

6. I have many more freckles than my opponents suggested 23.
______________________________________________________________

7. I actually have 31 teeth, due to having one pulled.

But the average human has 32 teeth. (Without having any pulled)

http://www.cyh.com...
_______________________________________________________

Conclusion: My opponent has given no proof that he is in fact God, the creator of the universe. I have asked him simple questions that the Creator of the Universe (And everything in it) would EASILY know, which he has proven nothing more than his ability to guess incorrectly.

He did not get one of the questions right, proving that he is not the All powerful, all knowing, creator of the Universe and everything in it.

Resolution NEGATED.

damn it Lexicaholic. I was goin to say that would have been a better answer. It looks like you just beat me (by a week).

In response to questions, God is supposed to respond "you shall not test the Lord thy God." Just so ya know for next time. ;)

1. Tie. I am an agnostic. I have no way of knowing ... :P
2. Con. I'll explain in the argument section.
3. Tie. Although I was very tempted to hand it to Con for the line of Vote Pro's at the bottom.
4. Tie.
5. Con. Pro identified himself as the Christian God in Round Two. The CG is omniscient. Pro clearly isn't.
6. Con, and they won him the debate.

A debate started by Pro with arrogance ended with beautiful failure. Exaggerated self-opinion brought to servility like the toppling of the proud who think they stand. Good job Alex.

Sources and arguments to CON. CON proved that PRO can't be God, and used sources in doing so.

Okay, pictures will be posted tomorrow regarding the questions that you have gotten wrong.

"I challenge him to try to prove that I am not God"

By accepting this debate, CON accepted the challenge, and thus has to prove that PRO is not God. Good luck.
