Hi I am a born again Christian who believes that the bible is scientific scientifically correct and historically accurate and who's defending in this debate that there are numerous times in the Bible were the bible is scientifically correct about events such as the flood which happened and if anyone thinks otherwise please accept the debate.

Thank you for taking the time out to view my debate and I pray that you have a blessed day :)

Let's keep this short and sweet.

Even if everything that happened in either testament of the Bible and even in the Qur'an as it uses the same god, were all possible, this does not prove that any of it was true.

On top of that, even if absolutely everything that happened in every version of these 3 texts were true, this still doesn't prove God.

Until you can prove the God, the only state one can be in regarding the God can be doubt.

For starters I would like to start off by saying.....
Thank you, you don't know how happy I am right now the long argument is problem is what I had in my last debate.

Anyway let me get on with the debate.

If everything in the quran and the bible happened there would be contradictions.

And the evidence for the flood is the large canyons found all over the world, petrified tree's in the upright position, the different layer's of rocks/mud, the Ark found in Turkey next to mount ararat just like it says in the Bible if you have any evidence against it please do let me know.

I can't prove Good God but I can't disprove God

If you can't prove God, then you lose this debate because you have to challenge disbelievers and show god to be true.

You could say that it's a draw because you can't even disprove God and also just because you can't prove something or explain it doesn't mean it doesn't exist for example gravity you can't explain it nor can you prove it doesn't mean it exists.

>Reported vote: Edlvsjd// Mod action: Removed<

3 points to Pro (Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Pro argued that the Bible is true and that historical events recorded in the Bible were shown to have happened. This was not refuted. So pro has one this debate.

[*Reason for removal*] The voter is required to assess specific points made by both sidesi n the debate. The voter states that one point from Pro went refuted, but fails to evaluate any of Con's points and compare them with this. Hence, this vote is insufficient.

We know the global flood did not happen. This is a creationist fantasy pure and simple, and an attempt to spread a perverted ignorance to the gullible.

The irony is that a literal interpretation of the bible such as this, misses the multi textured nuances of the documents. The beauty of the bible is not what is written, but in understanding what the authors were trying to convey, how they interwove their stories together and the influences they were working with.

Religions are false, their foundational documents are false, but they are also endlessly fascinating.

When did this global flood happen? Who was there to see it happen? Is there an eyewitness accounts?
The main reason people do not believe is because there is no good reasons to believe.
Also the bible does not meet the criteria for a credible source, the Bible is not a reliable historical source because it does not meet the standard criteria of source reliability used by historians.
Since any particular source my be fabricating their story, multiple independent sources are usually required for confidence. Establishing the lack of author biases, including religious motivations, is also necessary if a work is to be read at face value. The Bible satisfies none of these requirements.

Reasons for voting decision: While the resolution for this debate was not clear, the issue seemed to center around the veracity of the God of the Bible in relation to the evidence which is supportive of scripture such as that of the Flood. Although Pro did not explain his evidences, Con did not refute them and therefore argument points go to Pro. Con forfeited first and forfeited more rounds than Pro so conduct points go to Pro as well. Shalom.
