there obviously is a god we can see his creations that is evidence of him because he created us in his image if you dont believe you are ignorant and you hate him

Ragnar

Con

15 minute argument limit.

Argument:
God has not lived for a very long time, as evidenced by the holocaust [1], and God intervening (as seen in the bible) far lesser suffering [2]. Unless pro wishes to argue the Nazis were doing God’s will, in which case they could not have lost the war… Thus regardless of existence, God has clearly been demonstrated to have not been alive for over half a century.

Rebuttals:
“evidence of him because he created us in his image”
The resolution “god lives” clearly calls for God being alive. Pro’s own testimony counters that, as the human lifespan is less than any estimate of the age of the earth. Humans being made in the image of God, would logically have the same life span.

“if you dont believe you are ignorant and you hate him”
Ad Hominem attack, which does nothing to support the resolution.

Are you debating that god is real,that god is affecting our lives or that Nietzsche concept of "god's dead" is wrong?The resolution isn't clear,i will gladly debate you if you clarify it.
