Is god real or not?!?
Debate Rounds (3)
This not a topic to research. I believe in God. I know that if u dont believe in him or worship him ure not only lost in life and have no afterlife. He does not take orders from u and doesnt pay any atention or give notice to u if u dont believe in him!!!!!
It's not kind of man constructed, it is a construct of man and has given a smart man or government body power over the weak minded, shown throughout history. God does not exist but in the imagination of the believers.
For you to say what you say, Such as " He just shows who made us", how do you know it's a "he", how do you know it made you, my parents made me through procreation, a biological act, no mystical being had any part in it.
" This life is just a temporary life waiting for our eternal long living afterlife with god! this life on earth on life is just the tent in your backyard" There is no life after death, once you die, you're dead, there's nothing more to it. There is zero proof to such a claim.
Your claims are silly to say the least, and unsubstantiated.
Is God real or not,
God is not real because the evidence of the bible shows it to be a man made construct. The line stating "This is the word of God" was obviously written by a man.
The burden of proof is on you, show it exists or understand reality.
You're a smart bright young lad but I believe you have good argument of why god is not real. It would be a harder debate if I was older and knew even more about god than I do know now. But to my response, if God would not be real then why is Christianity a widespread religion and still spreading. Also to conclude to that response: God is real because the healing miracles. For example: (dont know the story exactly.) There was a man who had been pronounced dead after he ran over by a truck while he was riding his bike. The man had been to 2 different hostpilas and was also prounoced dead in the ambaluance. After about an hour later he had came back to life and the nurses were amazed! He said that he had seen a light and it was god . He said that god had gave him a chance to relive his life again. Also to conclude to that you said that when you die your died and there's no afterlife. But to question that. How would you know that . Have you been dead yet. No! Also yes the bible was man created but the person who created the bible made a stament that god entered his/her mind. After the short historical and knowledgeable the wrote the bible. Also explain jesus if god isn't real!
It's a misunderstanding to say it's still spreading, It's more that it is breaking up into a number of smaller sects with their own vision of "God" with the guidelines from the bible/quran . Ie: Mormons/ Jehovah witnesses etc.
Not to divulge into my personal live as you have no way to verify it, but yes, I was legally dead for 7 minutes on an operating table, I did indeed see no bright light, no memories flashing before my eyes, It felt as if falling asleep then being forced awake. Your story is nice but a near death experience is different for every one, and hysteria and hallucination are a side affect. Though the "White light" isn't completely understood it theorised to be a chemical reaction to cells dying in the brain.
Secondly, The claim is there is life after death, that is what needs to be proven, not the negative claim, there is no proof of anyone rising from the grave.
In reference to "the man who created the bible", It was not one man, it is the works of 40 something unknown authors from different time periods most claiming the same thing. It's not proof as I can claim Ra the sun god is telling me what to type on this computer (see what I mean?).
And lastly - Jesus, It's not actually known if this Jesus truly existed for he is only a character in a book as is Harry Potter. Would you say Harry Potter is real seeing as there are 7 books written about his life, I think not.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro claimed that a near death experience story proved God. Con refuted this by showing that some don't have them, they vary, and they are naturally explained. Pro claimed that the growing number of Christians prove Christianity. Con pointed out that Christianity is splitting into different religions. Neither points are convincing. Pro claims that Jesus is proof, con showed being a person in a book isn't proof. Burden of proof: The title is "Is God real or not." So Pro is claiming God is real, while con is claiming God isn't real. So Con does have a burden of proof. However when con said only pro has a burden of proof, pro never refuted this or clarified that con has a burden of proof so I will assume only Pro has a burden of proof and Con is only arguing to not believe. Pro made many claims like life after death but didn't support them. Con made unproven claims that God isn't real and there is no afterlife which does require proof but isn't necessary to simply refute pro. Con wins.
