God_Assasin

Con


In this debate, intend to discuss the God of the Christian origin. As Con, I will be arguing that God does not exist. Thus my opponent will be arguing that God does exist. I wish to take this debate seriously, anyone that can prove that God is real, should accept.


Definitions:


God: A divine, supernatural, omniscient, omnipotent, personal, supreme being that is thought to have created life, moral values, and the universe.


Theist: Having the belief in a god/gods.


Atheist: Lacking the belief in god/gods.


Creationism: the belief that the universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation, as in the biblical account, rather than by natural processes such as evolution.


Evolution: the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth.


Omniscient: All-knowing, knows past, present, future.


Omnipotent: having unlimited power; able to do anything.


Faith: strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.


Rules:




  • First round is acceptance only. Second round will be for arguments only. Third round and on is for arguments and rebuttals.




  • A forfeit is an automatic loss.






  • My accepting the debate, you accept all the definitions and rules. If you would like to question a rule or definition, please specify in the first round.






  • Do not limit your duties. Many religious debaters limit their task to proving that there is a possibility that God exists. This is obviously unfair, for I am arguing God does not exist, my opponent is arguing that God does exist.

I accept this argument on the grounds of both entertainment, and practice for my developing skill as a debater. Best of luck to my opponent.

Oh I know my philosophy teacher hated it but just because I don't like taxes doesn't mean they are not taxes.

I think you'll find a lot of people disagreeing with those definitions, especially from philosophical circles.

Gnostic Atheist: Strong belief there is no God.
Agnostic Atheist: Belief there is no God but uncertainty.
Agnostic Theist: Belief there is a God but uncertainty.
Gnostic Theist: Strong belief that there is a god.

Informally Agnostic generally means uncertainty in belief.
Generally someone who says they are an atheist is Gnostic.

Gnostic: Knowing
Agnostic: Not knowing
