DEFINITION OF PERSONAL GOD:a deity who can be related to as a person instead of as an impersonal force; a deity that has an interest for each person.
Posted by ProfJacob 3 years ago

What do you define "personal god" as? Generally, it is a refference to a god YOU believe in. However, if you are reffering to the monotheistic, christian God (An entity who is said to be the creator and ruler of the Universe and is omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent, and omnipresent), then, I won't accept.

I might accept this, but someone else might beat me to it. Either way, I'd like to debate this topic or something with you sometime, theta_pinch.

@ theta_pinch, I think it depends on the definition of what your defining as the "Personal God." The "Personal God" can be proven or disproven with evidence depending on what definition is associated with said entity. If it entails something that can not be measured then nothing be proven in the positive or the negative in terms of the resolution. If the existence of said entity can be measured adequately , then that is another matter altogether.

The wording for this debate is a bit strange since your proposing it. I am not saying anything else on the topic until the debate is done.

@tophatdoc

The burden of proof lies on the person making the positive claim which is that a personal god exists. By the same logic that you were using I could say a flying pink walrus that is impervious to all environmental factors and invisible to detection equipment lives under the surface of pluto and you'd have to prove it doesn't exist. And we all knw you can't prove a negative.

The title is tricky. I almost want to argue pro just because of the ambiguity of "personal God" I would explain that a personal God does in fact exist if not only in the minds of the believer! So I think it needs to be more specific like "Is believing in a personal God rational" or something along those lines!

This should be interesting. But is it not Con who is in denial of an entity? I would assume Con would have the BOP for denying the existence of an entity. I will watch this one closely.
