disbelief=i believe god is false
belief=i believe god is true

i can believe my neighbour is sleeping right now as i dont know

i dont know=i have to imagine it

I'd like to thank my opponent for creating this debate.

In the debate resolution, my opponent argues the following:
atheism=disbelief=belief=theism

This is absurd, as atheism is the negation of theism and disbelief is the negation of belief. Atheism/theism and disbelief/belief are not the same, they are not even similar; they are opposites.

how can you disbelieve the claim that i am making right now, that i am wearing a hat as i type this, without belief?

disbelief=belief that i am not wearing a hat
belief=i am wearing a hat
i dont know=i have to imagine it

belief and disbelief are opposite position on an imaginary claim, knowledge, is the opposite of belief, past and future

Thanks, Pro.

My opponent makes contradictory claims, first arguing that "disbelief=belief" before going on to argue "belief and disbelief are opposite position". Note that the second of these statements goes against what my opponent claims to defend in the debate resolution.
