It seems as if we did take far too long to get into the meat of the debate, just right at the end there with little time left. Perhaps we shall meet again on a related topic. Thanks for the debate, @debateme13
@nellyj yeah haha we said nothing for 40 minutes and then tried to fit actual stuff into the last 5.
@debateme13 I have answers to some of your questions. I'll save those for a future debate.
@qallout @yaz @gigi when you finally decide to unleash the group debate portion of QallOut we should pair up myself and @nellyj vs. @debateme13 and @behind_the_veil_of_ignorance on a religious debate.
@genuine_504 I like this idea. I do think we'll really need to draw a more specific debate topic though. In the debate I had with you it was too broad for you. In this debate it was too broad for both of us, since we basically said nothing of importance till right at the end, and then we were rushing to try to say things and didn't get enough time to do it.
@debateme13 how about Christians are cooler than Atheists.
@genuine_504 lol I'll definitely take the neg on that one :P.I just proposed this one to Nelson, "The fundamental claims of Christianity have been proven to be true." That one will let us get into the actual meat of the discussion. If we can agree that the three fundamental claims are as follows, then we will have a more specific debate to go through.1. God is the sovereign, all loving, omnipotent, omniscient, perfect creator and current ruler of the universe.2. Jesus Christ became man and died for the salvation of the world. He is the son of God, and is God himself.3. The bible is the divinely inspired word of God.
@debateme13 negative that is putting Christianity on trial.
@genuine_504 if you want to phrase it that way, sure. If Christianity is the truth, it should hold up right?
@debateme13 the truth based off what?
@genuine_504 I've seen at @nellyj 's sunglasses. I think that is evidence enough that skeptics are cooler.
@behind_the_veil_of_ignorance that's his thing, lol. Hey it could be a lizard mask, lol.
@debateme13 @genuine_504 I think that's an awesome idea. It could be like the "Intelligence Squared" Oxford style debates- 2 on 2
@behind_the_veil_of_ignorance it shows theists are more efficient with money haha
