Becoming better at debates
Hi all, I'm a fairly new atheist and love to debate things, but I have yet to argue with a theist about theism (until this). So I created a debat on debates.org and had, what I thought, to be a great debate. I have nothing to go off of, and since nobody has voted on it either way, could you please take a look at my arguments and my opponents, tell me what was good and not so good. Any tips are welcome, thank you.Smile

I am so sorry that our dear old fundamental theist member is no longer here with us, otherwise I would just send him here and then he you could train all you want. I'm talking about Egor, for older members, you know, the one you all wanted out. Well, there you go, he is not here and now he is missed for good scientific reasons.

Anyway, stay a while and listen, there is much to learn here.

You're not doing too bad here, but I have noticed some things.

If I were you, I'd attack the "planning" on a greater scale. Push gods omniscience to the logical conclusion that god would have, without a doubt, known absolutely everything; all your actions, long before you were even created, before the universe even, as a consequence of having infinite knowledge.

Oh, and be a bit more through spell-checking. That's one thing I noticed. (but we all get those issues.)

Keep up the good work.

I certainly don't miss that hateful son of a bitch.
