Is God real
Debate Rounds (3)
Hi! I would like to accept this debate and hopefully entertain argument for a good time.
First, let me confirm that you are asserting God is not real/does not exist, is that correct? I just want to make sure we are both on the same page.
The years in the Bible are not the same as the years today. One year is a representation of a long time period , and does not literally mean 365 days. So the evidence for the Great Flood could have been washed away and eradicated from history millions of years ago.
Similar events to the Great Flood mentioned in the Bible have been recorded  and are not impossible at all. This gives us proof that the Great Flood mentioned in the Bible is not only possible, but similar events have happened, leading to the idea that the Great Flood was not only possible, but highly likely.
And remember, one day is not literally 24 hours in the Bible, so rain for forty days is most likely more like a long period of rain and monsoon type weather. An example of such a great amount of rain is here . Almost 500mm of rain in a month and a half, meaning for the great amount of time that rain fell in the Biblical era, the waters must have rose incredibly.
God is forgiving to those who ask for forgiveness. For the people who disobey and harm mankind as well as curse God's name, there is no reason to forgive them. God created Hell for the people the bad people of Earth.
This does not disprove the existence of God. This "disproves" (notice the quotations) the idea of a flood sweeping the earth a mere thousands of years ago. It doesn't even disprove that, you just say the lack of evidence other than the Bible (which I agree, is not "evidence") shows that there is no way a flood swept Earth. However, with my sources in R1, and this new one here , it is quite possible that there was a flood some thousand years ago, as well as ones in more recent times, and past times, all backed up with actual geographical evidence.
The Bible being 100% accurate or not has almost nothing to do with God's existence. It is the word of God, but written by man. God is all-knowing, man is not. The only way anyone can actually disprove the existence of anything is to explore every inch of the observable Universe, and also prove (somehow) that there is nothing more in existence than the universe that we live in.
I don't really like having to resort to that argument, so I will happily let you make another couple arguments and present any questions, as well as a closing statement. If what you say has any relevance to God's existence (or lack of), I would love to hear it. So far you've said the Great Flood is known to be a myth, (which I have proven could have happened, as we have actual evidence of floods much like the one from the Bible) and that God is not forgiving - which is wrong; God IS forgiving, you just have to seek him out and ask for forgiveness, and it would be a pretty good idea not to go against any of the commandments while you're at it.
Thank you for making my first debate a fun one good luck.
I'm glad we had a good debate and I'm glad you had fun, so did I!

Reasons for voting decision: Con's case did not sufficiently fulfill the burden of proving that God does not exist. Even taken completely at face value on all points, Con's case simply doesn't prove nonexistence of god in general--and Con didn't specify the christian god in the R1 setup. Welcome to the site Con! I wish you the best of luck in future debates. As always, I'm happy to clarify this RFD.
