your imaginary answer for there being a god or not is as good as your answer for how many fingers i am showing behind my back

Vi, I give up.

PLEASE TRY TO MAKE AN ARGUMENT.

POINTS
perhaps; possibly.
This is the google definition [1] of maybe.

When you don't know, it is possible that the thing may be possible, or perhaps happen.
Maybe is not a 'powerfull[sic]' word when you don't know as it can be used in a number of non 'powerfull' cases.

1.) Google definition.

you have to try to be able to give up
PointyDelta

Con

Vi, I am trying. As a courtesy to you, I'll attempt to understand your argument.

I think you're stating that it is an improper use of the word maybe to describe the existence of G-d when we don't know.
I've stated that maybe carries the meaning of perhaps, or possibly, and as G-d could perhaps, or possibly exist, maybe is a proper word to use.
Resolution refuted, Vote Con.

I just realized this debate happened 3 times. I'm starting to doubt vi_spex... He cant argue at all! Plus, vi_spex should make a debate where he's Con. That would at least add some variety to his debating. (PS vi_spex is most likely either a robot, or some person that makes no sense most of the time. I'm going for the "bot" idea.)
