The firkin proposition space is small. It needs to allow more characters. The debate that I want to have would be the following proposition: "Based on the most recent historical and scientific evidence pertaining to The Shroud of Turin and the textual evidence pertaining to Jesus Christ, an inference to the best explanation is 1) The Shroud of Turin is Christ's burial cloth. 2) Jesus Christ rose from the dead."
A vast majority of evidence that exists supports these two assertions, and there is much less evidence to the contrary. It is an inference to the best explanation that the claim is true, that Christ rose from the dead.
Provide the best evidence to the contrary of either point. If the points are true, then explain why the inference to the best explanation (abductive reasoning) would be anything other than Christ rose from the dead.

Anyone out there? I don't see my debate in the Religion category any longer, and don't know if anyone is still interested.

OH wait, it looks like Draka has accepted it, and I don't think I'm able to change anything.

Well, I have never done this before so wanted to get acclimated to this by doing a shorter one. If you insist on this, let me know and I will change it.

Could you change this to a 4 round debate?

Because 2 round isn"t much space to argue.
