Given the ideological tilt of this site there won't be a debate. Just a smug circle jerk of evolution lovers talking about how stupid the other side is.

I'm not interested in arguing for either side. In my opinion the entire argument is pointless. Let people believe what they want and move on. There are far more pressing issues in the world, ones we don't have to go eons in the past to learn the truth about.

^We can win if we can ask the other side to follow some rules.

Yes, especially rule 2 which I'm following more after discussions with Oculus and Cretoma. I respect them as fellow rational people.

um seeing as how 3/4 the site who talk polit are far-retards and another 1/8 are conservative it will probably be just tabby on the "evolution lover" side.

In my opinion the entire argument is pointless. Let people believe what they want and move on.


the same can be said for most arguments, it doesn't mean that it's not worth talking about. this one is actually one of the more meaningful ones as it can really affect how you teach your child and your whole outlook in life.

I honestly couldn't care about the evolution. Why argue over how we got here? We are already here. Why waste time proving how humans came to exist if it is self-evident that we exist.

My justification for belief in God:

1)I am a pragmatist. I am more interested in believing useful things that make my life/afterlife better rather than correct things which could make my life/afterlife worse.
2) I accept Pascal's Wager.
3) As a counter to Russel's teapot, I propose Christian Exceptionalism.
4) Christian Exceptionalism is the belief that the civilization (specifically Western) we have today was built by Christians and that only Christians could have built it.

I resolve the problem of moral evil by the Free-will-theodicy and the problem of natural evil by the soul-making theodicy.

^Good. So the earth is less than 7,000 years old, right? Furthermore do you believe in Noach/Noah's Ark?

If you do believe in these I think you have some serious problem in terms of generations.

Implying such a thing called "afterlife" exists.

I personally am divided on wether a god exists or not.

Either there is no god.
Or there is a god, but it (not he) is a giant asshole. Creating the universe and then not giving a flying fuck about what happens afterwards. Just sitting in a huge "heaven" castle torturing the dead. God = Devil.

Yeah fam I'm sure there's an old bearded lad high up in the skies, that's all-knowing, all-powerful and all-good. I'm sure that he's the only god, despite the thousands of others that other people claim to believe exist, and I'm sure that when I die I'll either join his club or be expelled to a fiery pit of punishment.

don't worry bro I'm positive that he exists because everyone around me said he exists and there's this one cool book that says he exists idk

Wake up sheeple !
