UnhookedSchnook

Con

My opponent must be a Christian that believes in every word of the bible. They must construct one strong evidence-based argument that proves the existence of their god. If my opponent or I disagree with one another (which we most likely will) we must post a refute/defence. I will not post any points as to why being an atheist is best as we do not have the burden of proof. If my opponent agrees with me I win, if I agree with them they win, if we disagree the voters are suggested to look for any violations of my rules and/or see if his argument holds up to my refutes.

Terms

All terms and definitions are influenced by or excerpted from the Oxford Dictionary.

4. Maintain a civil and decorous atmosphere
5. No trolling or deconstruction semantics
6. No "kritiks" of the topic (i.e. arguments that challenge an assumption in the resolution)
7. My opponent accepts all definitions and waives his/her right to add resolution definitions
8. For all undefined terms, individuals should use commonplace understandings that fit within the logical context of the resolution and this debate

well spotted if you looked at my previous debates you would see that i did realize this mistake, but it has been so long that i had forgotten :). Should i call my other opponent out on it and claim a win? lol. jk.

Please post your argument this round and i will do 1 refute and you can do 1 defense.

Best of luck!

The round structure and your rules contain a contradiction. I have decided to follow the rules instead of the round structure, because the round structure should submit to the rules.
