I guess I'll forfeit this round as well because if not then I'm obviously going to be at a great advantage.

I suppose that's fine. I will open this debate later on and request that only a religious person accept.

I am an atheist, I am debating for the sake of debate, I do not necessarily endorse every idea I will present but I love playing new sides.
