The first round will merely be accepting the debate. Round 2 is opening statements, and then my and my opponent will go back and forth until the final round which will be closing arguments. Good luck to my opponent.
For the Bible to be true, ALL of it has to be. It is claimed to have been written by an omniscient omnipresent omnipotent deity who is the creator of the universe. So it can't be wrong once. Genesis 1:2 states "Now the earth was astonishingly empty, and darkness was on the face of the deep, and the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the water." Water chemical compound is H2O, which is two hydrogen one oxygen. All of the oxygen in the universe was forged by fusing elements in stars, but stars weren't around until day 4. Therefore, water couldn't have existed before stars, by the bible clearly states that is was. Therefore, the bible is not true.
I will end this debate in 1 round. The words of the Bible that were told to Jesus is true for all the scientific information in it was true and was discovered hundreds of years later. However, the current Bible is not. The current bible was completed hundreds of years after the death of Jesus. The original one or part of it was lost I believe. http://www.gotquestions.org...
While the original words that were brought down to Jesus were true, the Bible we have currently is not.
Okay, my claim about Jesus has no evidence. I completely agree with you. What about the scientific evidence? You already lost the debate. There is no way the scientific evidence that was in the Bible was by the hands of man because we didn't know any of that until very recently. Read through this and please explain how that information as found in the bible. https://www.livingwaters.com... http://www.clarifyingchristianity.com...
Please let me remind you that your argument has no merit. You are saying that water couldn't have existed before the stars because of lack of oxygen. Also, let me remind you that you called God omnipotent. If God decided whenever someone said "Hi," a star would explode, water would appear or someone would fly, it will happen. God does not need to adhere to the rules of chemistry nor physics. We do.
Fair enough I guess. But why wright a creation story that contradicts literally everything we know. Not a thing about the first chapter of the bible lines up anything science has found out. Even if science is wrong. Why make it look like the universe is 4.7 billion years old? Why wright about a flood that couldn't have happened?
