God exists.

Ockham
BrettBoelkens

The resolution is that God exists. Pro will be arguing that God exists, while Con will be arguing that Pro has not established that God exists.By accepting this debate, Pro agrees that they have the burden of proof to establish that it is objectively more likely than not that God exists. The rules for assessing this are the standard rules of logic, including the rules of deductive and inductive inference. For example, a deductive argument must be deductively valid and have premi...

God doesn't exist

SirNoodles518

My argument is that due to the lack of credible evidence for God's existence the most reasonable position is to disbelieve in God. The burden of proof lies on those who believe in God, just as the burden of proof would lie on Bigfoot believers to make their case. Since the burden of proof lies on those who believe in God, then the debate I take it should focus on the Con side of this argument attempting to give credible evidence for God, while I on the Pro side will attempt to argue for the evid...

Everything Can Be Explained Without God

It is not true that: everything can be explained without God. It's possible that if everything could be explained without God, we would have already moved on from the notion of God long ago. Some explanations are incomplete unless they include God as a reason....

Truth is stranger than fiction

Zebra03
Comeatmebruh666

It is strange how in fiction we can write about technology, such as hover boards and jetpacks. Which seem to be the most amazing, unrealistic and strange things in books. However, it is stranger yet that we have the ability and technology to be able to create these things. In fiction, none of the physical processes is required. It is simply an idea that has been thought of. In reality, however, there needs to be a huge amount of strange and wonderful kit required to build these things. Take for...

It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge begins with experience.and everyday we have new experiences updating our knowledge of people, circumstances, life and society.past wisdom may not be useful in the present....

R4: Rebuttal and summation. No new arguments may be introduced, and voters should ignore new arguments made in R4. I would like to wish my opponent the best of luck in the debate, and look forward to an interesting discussion....
