Yes. I want to debate with an atheist on the existence of God via PM or chat because I need to do it for this one homework assignment of mine. Will any of you help?

Are you familiar with the fallacy of circular reasoning?

Apart from that, which god are you referring to? There are so many.

God exists; therefore god exists.

That's Argument No. 666:

"If you believe, then you will believe" seems like a better argument.

I hear if you say "Richard Dawkins" three times in front of a mirror at midnight, he comes out and gives a lecture on the evidence for evolution. Have you tried that?

I'm sure somebody here will consider a debate with you here on this forum in the debate hall if you agree to defend the existence of your particular god and not some vague undefined deity. Go ahead and start a thread in informal debates. State your position and make an opening statement.

In fact, I'd be happy to do that just as soon as I get home.

I'll debate.
Me: God doesn't exist
You: Yes he does.
Me: Whatever

This concludes our regularly scheduled debate. Now back to As The World Turns.

ah…..class room assignment 597,949,294. Never heard of those assignments when I grew up, but damn they sure are popular the last 20 years, seems like every teacher in amurica is demanding someone argue with an atheist about the existence of their favorite color of gawd.

There are plenty of Christian schools (both primary, secondary and post secondary) that would probably propose such an assignment.
How can you be sure my refusal to agree with your claim a symptom of my ignorance and not yours?

I am willing, but time is short.  I could debate myself, and save us both time?
