If you want to know, investigate Jesus Christ. We're told that "God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." Look throughout the major world religions and you'll find that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets. None of them ever claimed to be equal to God. Surprisingly, Jesus did. That is what sets Jesus apart from all the others. He said God exists and you're looking at him. Though he talked about his Father in heaven, it was not from the position of separation, but of very close union, unique to all humankind. Jesus said that anyone who had seen Him had seen the Father, anyone who believed in him, believed in the Father.

No one has been there so how do you even know evolution exist

Athiest response: '' That same argument can be refuted to yours'''

God is just some random guess'

Refuting; How is it a random guess. There is a reason why we believe in him. And also evolution is also a guess scientist just put fake info

God is always there for us

Athiest response:: Does god respond to your prayer? Have you even met him

Rebuttal what do you mean your challenging god and also have you seen evolution that is the question. And if people haven't met god how come in some cases people die and come back to life.

God made life and our bodies with love.

atheist response: Where is the proof that he made love and feelings when humans are born with the ability to.

My rebuttal: excuse me but sir we are going to have to settle this in a way that is easy to understand. Do you think our traits came from apes? Do we even act like apes? Science has been disproven wrongly so stop acting like it is always true when it is not. Can apes write a story? Can apes have sexual intercourse? Apes are not smarter than us?? So stop with your joke

Bad argument is bad.

1: Most people who believe in evolution are Christians.

2: Evolution has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

3: Natural selection=evolution, so unless you can give me one reason as to why it would stop working in a large scale of time, it's perfectly observable.

4: Apes can have sexual intercourse (fail man, fail), apes have emotions, apes can even paint.

5: EVolution is not a random guess. If you honestly think it is, you fail on a level so epic it deserves a brand-spankin' new title.

I believe that there is a God. Whether he is what we believe He is is another topic. I say that there is a God because what could have create the universe? Some people say all kinds of stuff about how the universe was an accident and that it came from nothing. My question is, how does something come from nothing? I believe that the creation of the universe is not something that we are meant to understand

The question "Is there God?" has such an obvious answer.... It doesn't matter if there is no proof... Many people believe so therefore God exists. If no one believed... well then, God probably wouldn't exist. But I think the same holds true for life itself... Try not believing that you exist... perhaps you won't.

Where's the proof that the earth is millions of years old? Nobody has been around that long,so how would evolutionist know that,if they weren't around that long? In other words,they have no proof to backup what they're saying & yet they want you to accept it as fact.

If I was in court & said that person killed that woman,because I drew him doing it &/or did computer animations that would never hold in court &,we all know that. So in other words, why aren't evolutionist held to the same accountability? That's my question.

You realize that exact same argument can be used against you and what you believe in, right?

They have evidence from every major branch of science. Just because you are ignorant of this evidence doesn't mean it is absent.

Do you have any idea how many planets there are out there? Billions upon billions. The chances of the planet being in the correct position are pretty nice.

An what are the odds of one of those rocky planets hitting another rocky planet at a perfect glancing blow to both give the earth an oversized iron core necessary for a strong magnetic field as well as a very large moon in orbit to stabilize the planet's spin and seasons? Oh, an that had to happen in the habitable zone, and the planet had to later be bombarded with comets via another rare event, all within a time frame before the star burns out... Of course assuming you were orbiting the right kind of star and it wasn't in a binary system or too close to the galactic core.

And after all that, some how amino acids had to magically combine to make life, something that mathematically should never happen.

Side: Yes
1 point

Yes. For several reasons.

1. The odds of our existence are so incredibly remote, it is logical to believe a higher power put us here. Of course we could be wrong, but it would be an understandable error.

2. The apostles of Jesus at least saw something that had them convinced enough to leave their old lives behind and suffer brutal deaths for their faith in Jesus. This is not a natural thing. If a man runs up to a group of people, swearing he saw a purple flying elephant, so everyone decided to flay him alive, but he continued to talk about what he saw, you should be at least partially inclined to believe that he sawsomething strange... Now if twelve people do the same thing, you should really really start to wonder what they saw.

3. Reading the bible has exposed truths to me about the nature of humanity that can't be found anywhere else. The author of the Bible knows mankind better than mankind.

Earth: Accretion model. Supported by cosmology, geology and physics.

Space: Inflation, already assumed true, recently supported by even more evidence. While the actual cause of inflation itself is still up for debate, multiple theories in quantum-physics and cosmology have been proposed and are mathematically and observationally viable. Meaning that, at the very least, there are a few possibilities aside from God.

The unfortunate thing about your statement is that you implore us to think...yet you take the side that requires the least amount of thinking.

Many ppl have stated they went to Hell & unlike the situation with alien stories,they've actually given great detail. Anyone who doesn't believe me can do any research they want to. If anyone hears their stories,they'll know they weren't dreaming or hallucinating. Plus there were too many witnesses to for it to be a dream or hallucination. Besides who's ever heard of someone having the same or similar dreams?

If anyone thinks that ppl getting up from wheelchairs is a scam,you can have injured friend(s) or family member(s) go on the podium &,have them prayed for. If they refuse to,then you'll prove it's a scam. If they do pray for them, & they get healed you'll have something to be happy bout won't you? Either way you can't lose.

You could also have a Pastor come over to your sick friend(s) or family member(s) to go over their hospital bed & pray for them if you like,so you won't have to spend any gas money.

Perhaps as ridiculous as the purpose of evolution and existence of life, isnt it?

Evolution is real, but why does it happen? If it seeks survival of the fittest, cockroaches has already won. If it seeks long life, trees has made it to the top. But no, the one who sits on the top of the food chain is the one who has no claws, no fangs, not even a good birthrate.

You clearly do not understand evolution.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.-Charles Darwin

That is us, we are the most adaptable to change. Also no way are cockroaches the fittest just because they can survive nuclear explosions, of course trees would not be on the top of the food chain because you might have noticed but trees aren't carnivorous.

And just because you are Atheist does not mean you are Nihilist. People think Nihilism is just not believing in Religion but really it is believing life is completely without meaning and usually that nothing exists.

You have to be delusional to believe in a god.

Side: No

I think the problem with this question is that when it comes down to it, it's a matter of belief. It can't be altered with sources, or even logic to some degree.

It's almost impossible to debate the existence of anything omnipotent, because you can always use the argument "that's how God chose it to be." There certainly may be a God, but at this point in my life, I'd probably say that there isn't one. But I have no way to prove this, and no way to try and convince anyone else of this fact. If you don't agree, fine. I don't want to change your belief. I just think this is a silly debate.

Over time, concepts of God are naturally exposed as myths. We know, for example, that the Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Norse gods are myths. Eventually people will probably stop believing in our gods and call them myths too. If any evidence appeared I'd say yes, but in the absence. of evidence for God and the surfeit of evidence against God, the pragmatic answer would have to be "no".

To be fair, I have no problem with people who believe in any god. As long as they don't try to drag me into it. But at the same time i can't believe in a god. Because really, the only thing that religions have in proving that there is a god, is some old books. News flash, anyone can write a book about that creation of humans. But then again people could have planted millions of dinosaur skeletons all over the planet, but lets be honest, that is so unrealistic that it is funny. Science proves a lot and it also disproves a lot, in which case it proves that evolution happened. It doesn't say that there is a god, but if there was/is then he/she/it doesn't do anything for or against the human race. This is my opinion and it might be a little harsh against Religion in general and that is also why I usually keep this to myself. It can hurt people feelings and really i believe that there are more important things that to prove that there is no God. WE have the right to believe and do so. I will talk my opinion when it is needed to be heard. Not just to be an ass.

No, I don't believe in a God. But I think that there is something out there. Maybe whatever it is is looking over us... or maybe it's not. I don't think that's something we can test.

But I can't shake the feeling that there is something. I'm not quite sure if it's a human, a creature, an energy, or one of the countless deities in the world, but it seems so depressing to just to live a life completely alone.

Maybe it's just because I'm one of those people who needs something to believe in. I don't really care all that much if I'm wrong (in the end, it won't matter anyways), all I know is that it makes me feel better to think that there's someone watching over us.
