A pretty simple debate for you to answer. . .

Suppose a genuine "god" was to knock on your door and you were to answer that knock? How would you be able to distinguish and know that this genuine "god" was in fact a god?

Btw, I 100% know the answer to this. Let's see if you do.

it really depends on if this "god" is from a mythology or a made up one. In any case, I would ask him to show me proof that he is a god.

This is why I truly hate debating those that are truly uneducated and unintelligent like you. There are soooooooo many ridiculous fallacies with your truly pathetic argument that its not even funny. 1. How would YOU distinguish between whether that god is from a "mythology or a made up one"? 2. Why would this "god" have to be a "he" and not a "she"? 3. Why would there only have to be one god knocking at your door instead of thousands. Billions, Trillions, Quadrillions at the same time? 4. Since you do not know what a god is, Since you have never met one, How can you define what a god is? 5. How would you demonstrate, Test, Then assert and then declare that this god is actually real? 6. Then since you'd naturally be able to do this, Right? You'd have to be able to submit your who knows what god to any scientific community of merit (that are not theistic of course because you cannot be biased after all) from around the world and present your findings to them, And thus get a passing grade. 7. Since you did not rationalize, Reason, Use common sense, Use logic, Think these things out, Again as the only question of this debate in the first RD asks "How would you be able to distinguish and know that this genuine "god" was in fact a god? "

I laughed aloud when I read this. You do understand the feminine word for God is Goddess, Right?

Apparently not. Lol.

I can't believe you're still capable of breathing when your brain clearly doesn't work.

@backwardeden- you'll ignore this, But so what, Here goes: I can't believe I have to share the same air as you. Clearly you have issues relating to religion as seen by your insults because someone like me DARES to question you. And to get hostile as to whether God would use modern technology to communicate? Man, Take some prune juice and Metamucil and relax.
God will take care of you.

In the NLT its "I create the light and make the darkness. I send good times and bad times. I, The Lord, Am the one who does these things. The words "evil" and "disaster" and "bad" are 3 completely different words that have 0% of nothing to do with each other and completely change the meaning of the verses. With each different verse, The messages are completely different. The synonyms of each word don"t even match.
Now which version is correct if any that millions are reading? And doesn"t any thinking moron not know that no god would allow this kind of crap to not allow any kind of passing the grade and thus no god, Not for any reason among many reasons, Would never even contemplate using text as a form of communication, Advertisement, Correspondence TO ANY GOD? So what's left? Faith? Do you ---really--- want to get into faith? Science doesn't work because no science was mentioned in the bible AT ALL of any kind to explain its god's existence.
That was fun.
Your next idiot response will be completely ignored because you are beyond ignorant and stupid and you have no idea, None, As to what your unproven storybook character god of print only is about and what you base your uneducated and unintelligent beliefs on and what you believe in and why. One would figure that you'd first have evidence before you'd believe rather than believing without evidence. Nah.
I'm so very glad I made your day better.

possible way to trace any of it back to the original because no original exists in the first place. So EVERYBODY, No exceptions, None, Is misinterpreting. Now suppose that there is an original? Who"s going to interpret from this original and get it right so that each translation and update that is required is going to get the same exact message throughout eternity which is a true impossibility simply because of translations terminology differences. "And and and" is going to mean something completely different in another translation to "the the the". Even better? What if these interpreters misinterpret as they all do with no questions asked? Even better? Who gives these interpreters the right to CHANGE anything that these characters say especially with the updates that there are in your bible? Simple. Compare the KJV to the NLT. Especially with your lead characters of your god and christ. Its truly pathetic. Now with all of these truly hideous fatalities in text alone, There"s absolutely no possible way that a true genuine god would have not foreseen all of these fatalities and would not ever, Not for any reason, Use text, Namely your bible, As a form of communication, Advertisement, Correspondence, The worst form of communication possible advertisement, Correspondence TO A GOD.
Here"s a few examples"
* In the Bishop"s bible, The one before the KJV, The word "Tyrant" was used I don"t know how many times (its at least 400 from what completed records show) and then in the KJV that was replaced by "King". WHAT? Tyrant and King are two different and totally apples and oranges with each having totally different meanings.
* In Isaiah 45:7 KJV "I form the light, And create darkness: I make peace, And create evil: I the Lord do all these things. " In the NIV version, Its "I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, The Lord, Do all these things. "

@Phil413 - I don't care what YOU say, You're wrong. No idiot god, In which case even if a god exists or not, Would not use text. How come atheists have no problem in figuring these things out whereas theists the utmost trouble?
Now to utterly humiliate, Degrade, And dehumanize you and you absolutely deserve it because you have proven yourself to have ABSOLUTELY no intelligence and no edumacation whatsoever, None, And wow does it show, And I'm going to have fun with this. Its just a mere copy and paste that I use on many imbeciles like you because you are too stupid to get it, But that's OK, You and Haytham would make great drinking buddies and he is a knowing spokesperson for his muslim comrades and 100% knows that the quran is the holy word of YOUR god and YOU and everyone on this planet should follow it implicitly. Prove him wrong. Yeah you have the same exact god as he does and he's got a few debates RIGHT NOW here on DDO. You really think YOUR god would use text? Really? What about the book of mormon? SAME EXACT GOD AS the one YOU believe in.
Oh I haven't even gotten started. This is so much fun. Let's continue. Let's specifically refer to your bumbling babbling booby big black hole bible shall we? Oh and btw, These ideas are not mine, But have been well thought out thousands of years ago right after your bible was first published by those that have been able to say "duh". Can you say "duh"? That's a good wittle boy.

Who says that ANY of the bible is true? YOU nor anyone can prove that ANY of it is. After all there"s no possible way that it can be proven as to who ---any--- of the authors were, Yes that includes Moses. There"s a good 1, 000 supermassive hypocritical contradictions and inconsistencies in your bible making it unreadable. There"s copies upon copies upon copies upon translations upon translations upon translations upon dead languages upon dead languages upon dead languages that have died off with absolutely no possible

@backwardseden- after I got done laughing at your responses, I maintained control and will simply say again: Unless you personally have met and talked to God, You can't possibly make a comment like that. Further, If don't believe in God, You can't even make that statement like that if in your eyes HE doesn't exist. So you know, The Bible is told by those who were there and were influenced by God to write what you see now. I wiil give you 1/2 credit for saying that God spoke to them mentally, But no points for saying He wouldn't communicate with today's methods. Your anger with religion is your shortcoming.

@Agent_42 - Considering that no one has ---ever--- in the history been able to prove --- any--- god or even any supernatural being from any religion in the entire existence of the human race, Until proven um no "we" are not "all aspects of the One God. " especially considering the fact that no god has ever defined what it was. Sure it defined what its powers, Rules, And regulations were/ are. But never its aspects and appearances so that if these so called unproven character storybook god(s) of print only were to show up at your door, In no possible way would you or anybody else be able to recognize them. Who really cares what the bible says? Or what ---any--- religious text says?
Ah yes, I bet YOU must bet/ guess that YOUR ONE god, Because it is YOURS only, As there's over 33, 480 denominations of christianity alone and you have no idea, None as to which one to believe in and which one is correct, None, So you like all SUPPOSED christians, You guess, And make bold-a$$-assertions without being able to back anything up with evidence, So once again, You guess, I bet that YOU must think that this unproven storybook character god of print only is going to POOF leap off the pages of your bible and say "I'm here, Worship me. " Right? Yeah with all of its contradictions, With all of its millions of translations, Copies and dead languages, Immorality, Genocides, Hatred towards children, Women, And gays. Really?
"Assume that we have no answer. Then the answer is "I don"t know". The answer isn"t "I can"t think of anything better, Therefore a god did it. ""Matt Dillahunty
