This debate is to discover what the users on debate.org prefer between atheism and theism and gives them to opportunity to vote bomb either one or the other, which is all in the name of good fun.

I am a theist who believes God exists and also that there are good reasons and good arguments that strengthen that belief, I do not adhere to the idea that you can simply lack a belief in God once being presented with arguments, Especially as many arguments are unresolved. I believe the default position should be agnosticism and after further inquiry one should reach theism, not atheism.

Bombs away folks.

Con

"I do not adhere to the idea that you can simply lack a belief in God once being presented with the arguments."

Funny, because people do that all the time, whether you "adhere to the idea" or not. I believethere is no way to conclusively prove the existence of a god. There are zero convincing arguments for such an idea. The only view that makes sense, ESPECIALLY after hearing the arguments, is agnosticism, but atheism is also fair, for the "Go Big or Go Home" type among us.

Ye I know john. There have been like 5 vote bombing contests since mine. However I like your idea of making the votes be based on something. Really cool.

Afraid of losing? Whhhhy? It's just Debate.org, man. And it's just a general survey of opinion anyway. Does it really matter than much if your win percentage goes up or down?

Either way, you should vote!

Stalin it was your debate that inspired me to do this one, only this one is based on peoples beliefs and not simply on who they wish to vote for. I am aware that this site has a fair number of active atheists which probably outweigh the theists, I am not bothered about losing this debate, as I said in it's all in the name of fun and up to the people, not the arguments presented. :)
