That God is real
Debate Rounds (3)
Me a Prophet of God
Ooh, I'm debating a Prophet of God. What fun.
There is no compelling reason to believe that God actually exists.
This is a debate about the existence of God. The burden of proof in on PRO, who claims "that God is real" (as per the debate title). I do not claim to know that no deities exist. All I'm saying is: we have no good reason to think that they do exist. Therefore, we shouldn't believe in them.
The whole "Lucy" issue is irrelevant. For all I care, this debate can proceed under the pretense that evolution is false. Even if evolution is false, we still have no compelling reason to believe in God.
I have nothing more to say.

Reasons for voting decision: Round 2. Pro says that evidence for God is lacking but that some random fossil is an ape so that is somehow not a problem. Con points out the burden of proof is on Pro who is claiming God exists and that this fossil is irrelevant to God's existence. Pro then says God exists because of feelings he has when praying, and he knows God exists because no one understands everything, and there are supposedly a bunch of books showing Jesus is real, and that he fulfills a bunch of unnamed prophesies. The last two points are at least a little convincing but there is a complete lack of details so I had no problem with Con just dismissing this. Suggestion to Pro. Go into detail about these books showing Jesus is real and the prophesies.
