to accept god is true, is to deny god, as the opposite is also a possibility

god has been slain

When you bet on "heads", it does not mean you are also betting on "tails".
Both are possibilities, but they cannot exist simultaneously in actuality.

Consider this - there is a chance you may win but I believe you already lost this debate.
A coin has 2 sides but I believe there is only one result.

to accept the coin will land on one side is true, is to deny the other side
DT

Con

If it helps in your analysis, consider this - winning this debate means someone else is going to lose.
Take your motion, and replace "god" with "I won the debate" or "I won the lottery".

That should enlighten you, like a lot.

you lose.. obviusly, and thats not a can be
DT

Con

Take "god" and replace it with whatever you've just said.

If you believe I lost, then by defending the motion, you should also deny that "I lost" because you believe all possibilities are realized no matter how contradictory.

A possibility X can only be equal to itself.
If X exists, then its contradiction (anti-X) cannot exist.

Possibilities are realized only if they are not contradictions.
If a ball is a sphere, it obviously can't be a cube.

I do find it logical for there to be Atheism, you have to have a God to deny existence of. Because if God does not exist, there would be no existence. Therefore, there would be no Atheism. But to accept atheism and except God at the same time contradicts itself. Atheism is a belief that there is no god or gods. So how can you believe and not believe the existence of god at the same time, unless in your heart you are lying about one of them?

or to accept god is to be an atheist, as atheism is also a possibility

im saying god must be true if atheism is true, because atheism is a possibility

I might accept, but I'm not quite sure what your argument or point of view is.
