Hello everybody ,theists and atheists and agnostic people , I am hear to cover a popular topic in which i will try to debunk one of the most famous atheists arguments , that argument can be stated as following :
if we go back in different times and periods we will find that each culture has some god or gods or a mixture of the two (Zeus for example) that are no longer worshipped today.
then how can you know for sure that your GOD is the real one among those 3000 or more gods trough out history.
in this part of my response to this argument I will criticize the idea of a mixture of gods (god of sex , war , hope , fertility ....) . This idea is impossible on all scales because if there were a multitude of gods there would be fights and quarrels all among them ,every single one of them would that like to be worshipped alone or even more than the others and that can in any case produce a perfect ,harmonious,contradictory world,each part of it following the reign and the rules of a certain god ,it would cause total chaos in a fight between the "gods".That said I don't think the idea of a multitude of gods gets any left credibility and the "evidence" is our perfect harmonious worls that is following a set of rules not the opposite.and that concludes that there is one and a single deity all powerful,all knowing the creator of the universe we know today , or NONE, no deity no god all this is a product of sheer chance .
the latter statement have major problems with it because the world as i mentioned
before follows a set of rules and rules don't make themselves and just pop up to existence, our world as we live in is perfecly designed and any variation, even the
slightest variation on some sort of constant would lead to the impossiblity of life on this universe in general, and planet earth in particular (knowing how vast the world of numbers is "infinite" the chance for existence to drop to a sucking blackhole called 0) althought that argument is refuted by a lot of atheist , what most refuted also is that the humans aren't subject of the intelligent design ,all atheist believe that, but what also a vast majority of atheists do believe is that the universe is amazignly "designed" and magnificentlly ordered , and that works for all the physical phenomenon that are all intelligent ,and that contradicts the fact that the humans aren't intelligently designed how can you agree that the universe is well designed whereas human aren't.
another important point that i want to talk about is the odds of having perfection created from chaos ,i want to refer to the big bang explosion , we all know that explosions and bombs create chaos and just chaos ,then how could te biggest explosion known to humankind create perfection as we see it manifested everywhere in this universe.
therefore we conclude from this long talk my dear folks that there must be a creator for the universe someone who controlled things so that they turn the way they are today.and that s ONE and unique GOD.
i hope you enjoy this article and find it interesting, feel free to respond or criticize we are all hear for healthy conversations,thank you

I accept.

Since you've given arguments in the first round I'll begin the basis of my arguments as well.

Other monotheistic beliefs exist. Take Islam for example. What makes one competing monotheistic religion better than the other?

Back to you, pro

HELLO con thank you for responding , well talking about the numerous monotheistic religions they all aside from the abrahamic religions , they all give god an image (even christianity) , they materialize the creator who is matterless and who created all matter , so the primitive concept of a monotheistic god was more rational than a mixture of gods but still incomplete for an image of a creator all powerful being that can cause and can't be caused , all the traditional unfouded motheistic religions share the similarity that there god has no infinite power , it is just a super natural being superior to our race, more like aliens, but not in any sense an all powerful being. i hope that answered your question con

I would like to accept your challenge, but there are some things that need to be clarified first.

First, all 3 topics are very interesting, however, having said that, they are very broad and each of them is a debate of its own. This is not only about monotheism, this is about Greek Mythology, the creation of the universe, and monotheism. You need at least 3 rounds on each of them to get a satisfying level of debating. I would suggest you open 3 debates instead to get the most out of them. Remember the debates are more fun and interesting if you can get the most out of them, and the way to do that is to be very specific about a specific point, then after you have constructed your points of views from the "altered-and-formed-through-debate" atoms that build the foundations of your beliefs, you can jump on a broader setting, feeling more clear, strong and confident about your thoughts, thus giving a challenging and valuable debate.

One topic could, for example, be: If there was no God, how can we explain the perfection of all constants and forces that hold together the universe in perfect harmony. How was their value determined?

Then you can mention the 4 forces, and start the argument there.

Just trying to give some advice.
Anyway, interesting topics.
