I'll let you open, as my argument only has one part.

Con

I say god exists. When you look at a painting it must have a painter, same thing with people, they must have a creator, that being god. Seeing as my opponent has not really elaborated on his point (wait what was his point?) and pro has the burden of proof I win this debate.
Debate Round No. 1
Tatarize

Pro

"God does not Exist."

There, I said it, the topic is absolutely true.
I do say, "God does not Exist."

And humans evolved: http://www.talkorigins.org...
Paintings don't reproduce, but if they were to it could have similar effects, for example the coloring of some butterflies is akin to painting and since it evolved there's no painter there either.

I'd be happy to elaborate on religion or evolution further in another debate, but as for this debate:
"God does not Exist" - is full of win.

Con

My opponent points to one source that claims evolution exists. This does not equivocate to God not existing. While this may seem to contradict the bible particularly, the chapter on genesis. If you were to read this chapter and just took it for it's face value then yes they contradict each other. One must remember that the bible is one interpretation of God's image as seen through the eye's of a few select men and it is not the same as God's exact words. BILLIONS of people believe in God http://www.adherents.com... to just say God does not exist and just provide 1 link that say's there is evolution is not sufficient enough to deny the extensive of a being who has provided BILLIONS of miracles http://www.christian-faith.com.... My opponent has also failed to answer my first contention that everyone has to be created by something and that person is accepted to be God by most of the world.

I don't think many of the voters were confused. They get it.

By the way,
Do you like fishsticks?

No I get it, but you started to actually debate me then rather explain the quote which lead to confusion by the voters.

Pfft, you actually don't understand? Lol.

As I said before the voters didn't get it either. You started playing into my argument when you talked about evolution, which gave me an opening. If you just restated the quote with some more explanation I think you would've had it in the bag.

Oh, come on. Losing a few points is one thing, but honestly down by 10 ouch. It was a clever trick. No points for being clever?

Seems you entrapped the wrong people, the voters.
Posted by Tatarize 8 years ago
Tatarize
Nah, they just want to cut down on entrapment debates by making it clear that you don't get gimme wins like that. It'll fall to my side at some point in the future, but they do sort of have a point from a pragmatic point of view.

@ Tatarize

Looks like the arguement has been too subtle for many voters!

Actually it's not semantics - that word is over abused.
