God Exists

MBill
Xviiixvi

In this debate I will make the case that there are good reasons to believe that God exists and that there are not comparably good reasons to believe that God does not exist. It is not my intention to provide conclusive proof, But rather to show that the Theist is on good intellectual grounds for his belief. Although I am a Christian, I am not defending an exclusively Christian conception of God. To do that I should need to write on the historicity of Jesus and his rising from the dead, Which...

God Exists (Moral Argument)

MBill
byaka2013

I will be making the case that objective moral values and duties do exist and that since they can only exist if God exists, then God must also exist. In order to understand the argument, we must first understand what is meant by "objective" and "subjective" truths. Consider two statements that one might make about a painting, that it is beautiful and that it is painted on canvas. If we say that the painting is beautiful, we aren"t really saying anything about the painting per se but about ou...

God Exists (Contingency Argument)

MBill
SkySky16

In this argument I will make the case that 1) Something must exist that exists by the necessity of its own nature, and that 2) this something is personal and transcends space, time, matter, and energy. Such a personal transcendent being is what we mean by "God" so the fact of its existence is sufficient to prove a broad theistic worldview. The argument I will present trades on the concepts of "contingency" and "necessity". Something is "contingent" if it depends on something else for its exi...

God Exists (Cosmological Argument)

epicemmy9

In this debate I will be contending for the theistic worldview at the exclusion of the atheistic worldview. Although I am a Christian, I am not here arguing for Christian particulars. The Cosmological Argument is perhaps the strongest of the arguments for God"s existence. Its premises enjoy both philosophical and scientific backing, and its conclusion is certain. If this argument works, then it is logically impossible that God doesn"t exist. This is very strong language, and it is meant to b...

Objective Moral Values and Duties Show that God Exists

MBill
SkySky16

1. If God does not exist, objective moral values and duties do not exist. This is due to the grounding problem. If God doesn't exist, then there is no objective standard by which moral values can be established. Each of us (or each society) can choose its own moral code, and there is no "right" or "wrong" to it. Morality is merely a matter of preference (although that preference may be informed by evolutionary history, society, etc). 2. Objective moral values and duties do exist. Moral...
