Hi there,

I'm new to the forum, but I'd like to take the affirmative position in the debate proposal: "Does God exist?" Since the argument is in the form of a question, I'd like my counterpart to offer positive arguments to think that God does not exist, as opposed to taking the so-called "weak atheist" position. Here's how I'd like the debate to go:

Opening Statements: 2,000 words each

First Rebuttals: 1,000 words each

Second Rebuttals: 1,000 words each

Closing Statements: 500 words each.

I'll be upfront and say that I will be defending Thomas Aquinas's first, third, and fifth ways. For the purposes of the debate, "God" is defined as an eternal, indestructible, designer of the cosmos.

Anyone interested?

P.S. If we do go through with this debate, I'd ask that any participation from additional posters be saved until the end of the formal portion of the debate. Thanks!

My bad. I just found the formal debate section. You can ignore this post. :)
