There are many Evidences of the bible's truths.

I would like to thank my opponent for instigating this debate. I would like to start first by stating that the bible contains no archaeological evidence in and of itself. Now, since the topic is somewhat vague, and there were no arguments made by pro in round one, I will save any arguments until pro presents his first round. I look forward to a well thought out argument by my opponent, and hope to be able to rebut intelligently. Good luck to my opponent, and may the best argument win.

This is very disappointing, as I was looking forward to this debate. Since my opponent instigated this debate and forfeit, I urge a con vote. Again, this is certainly not conduct becoming of the DDO community. Good luck to my opponent on his IMPORTANT debate, and thank you...

Thats the whole reason why i brang it up. I had knowlege of the discovery of noah's ark on mt ararat, the real mount siani, and the horse bones and chariot wheels at the bottom of the red sea crossing. I will do it again when i have time don't worry.

Aww. This had potential to be an interesting debate. Too bad it didn't happen. Pro could have used all sorts of stuff like the supposed discovery of Noah's Ark on some mountain.

*Reads the last sentence of a book*

And the whole argument was forgotten by all for it was a complete waste of time.

Here comes the lawyer again. If you want to reflect back to my comment, I used a hypothetical scenario to point out that the comment, "Don't think before you act", is not very good legal advice.

You actually did. "Who is the real idiot here?" is insinuating that either myself or he is an idiot. So by your previous stated logic he did think before acting and you certainly did not. You then went on to actually call me an idiot.

As I've said to you maybe three times now (I believe); reading comprehension, it is your friend.

Why are you calling everyone idiots?"

I never called you an idiot. I didn't even call the other guy an idiot directly. He asked me if I was an idiot, so I explained why I was not an idiot. Why are you slandering me by falsely accusing me of things? Yet another example of not thinking before speaking. By the way, I don't know you, so don't call me dude.

Why are you calling everyone idiots? Real mature. And y are you getting so worked up over an internet debate? Dude get a life.

Who is the real idiot here? Two guys are supposed to debate, and one foolishly bites off more than he can chew. The other let's his frustration be known. Then some third guy gets in on the action and decides to become the first guy's lawyer. The problem is that the third guy is not a lawyer at all... He's the real idiot, because he does not THINK BEFORE HE SPEAKS.

How does this really sound in your head? "Don't think before you act."-you
