Pro

IN A MATRIX OR COMPUTER PROGRAM:
That conundrum only applies to the believer in atheist Dogma:
We Theists know for certain that we are not in computer programs,
but the believer in atheist Dogma has no way of knowing that
on his crippled atheistic worldview. Very sad!

Con

I accept. My position will be known for the following definition:

Humans do not need god to know if they are in the Matrix

Purushadasa, you never brought forth any positive evidence for your positive claim, merely asserting that "theists know for certain that they aren't in a computer program." Whatever is asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. The burden of proof is on you to prove your position, not to say that

Both of you were in the acceptance round, stating your positions, so that you don't talk past each other, not your opening statements. You often state you have won before your opponent has argued their case, or before they could even present their case in the first place. And you constantly use ad hominem attacks against your opponents, as in your debate about the ignorance of atheists where you compared atheists to defecating babies and lower animals. May I suggest you actually look at some debates and try to emulate those, and not fill the intellectual arena with bluster, bombast, and bullying.

you are helping me. But only so I know what I am debating. You arent helping me with my evidence, just to clarify my role in this and what you are doing. If you do not enjoy this, I can gladly leave this debate.

Also, technically speaking, I don't think that I'm supposed to be helping you! =)

for the first round I accept the debate since it seemed like in the first round you were explaining what you stand for. So I will just accept and you can start your first argument.

To tell you the truth, I'm new here myself, so I don't know what to tell you in response to that question.

Oops -- just checked -- you are actually 13.

Okay, sorry for the age comment....

My position, as the Pro side, is "Without God, You Can't Know That You're Not in the "Matrix.""

Yours, as the Con side, would be something along these lines: "Without God, You Can Know That You're Not in the "Matrix.""

Your mission would be to prove your side with some evidence for your Con statement (a fact that some of the knuckleheads who have accepted my other challenges on here don't seem to comprehend).

Make sense? =)
