Thank you! Sorry for my late response.

I really appreciate the help and the suggestion you have given me and how the people in this cite are treating these types of debates very professionally. The monitors are pretty awesome too! Much better than people from debate.org!

Welcome to the site, and nice job on the formatting! ... You don't really need it, but it might teach you a couple tricks: http://tiny.cc/DebateArt

My biggest argument feedback would be use a couple more sources. Second would be rather than in later rounds listing the numbered responses to the new stuff, list the same numbers and count forward into any new arguments. Your old ones can just be "My opponent dropped this, extend."

look at how long the list is of sceintists that were atheists it is shocking, many sceintiest beleive in a god, fine not doubting that what is so surprsing is how ignored the facts is that amongthe gernal population athesits amount to at most 5 to 10% of the population the higher up the iq chain you go the proportion increases, the fact is a majority of sceintists are athesit or agnostic https://www.pewforum.org/2009/11/05/scientists-and-belief/ "The recent survey of scientists tracks fairly closely with earlier polls that gauged scientists’ views on religion. The first of these was conducted in 1914 by Swiss-American psychologist James Leuba, who surveyed about 1,000 scientists in the United States to ask them about their views on God. Leuba found the scientific community equally divided, with 42% saying that they believed in a personal God and the same number saying they did not.

More than 80 years later, Edward Larson, a historian of science then teaching at the University of Georgia, recreated Leuba’s survey, asking the same number of scientists the exact same questions. To the surprise of many, Larson’s 1996 poll came up with similar results, finding that 40% of scientists believed in a personal God, while 45% said they did not. Other surveys of scientists have yielded roughly similar results."

So anything else you need from me? (Also I don't have money to pay to see that study, sad)

That is actually an very misinforming statement. Many of the greatest and most famous scientist are religious and their belief have not abate their progression and understanding of science! Just search online about people like Newton, Einstein, and even Darwin! They are all religious person!

Thank you for the question! Do you want me to prove religion’s effect on countries or its effects on individuals?
(Also there probably aren’t any studies based on studying the effect of religion on countries so I probably can only provide you with a map of where religion is and what religion is dominant, in comparison with a map of the territories the empire once control)

Cite meta analysis studies.
