I, Jarrett_Ludolph will be holding the CON position, the view that the argument is unsuccessful, while my opponent, PRO, will be taking the view that the argument is successful. Even though there are other arguments for the exist of God, this debate will only cover the Kalam.
I look forward to a lively debate!
To be fair, I left the response in the comments BEFORE you accepted xD

why must you betray me?
You should really attempt to engage the subject matter. it doesn't really matter what he names his argument because he has reasons listed that you're not engaging with
It wasn't hard to guess.
Nah, SirAnonymous did. I just told him how to respond :)
Lol you called the semantics argument right on
It affects percentage and your total number of won/lost debates, but not your rating.
If the debate isn't rated, will and win/loss be recorded in my statistics? I know my rating for the leaderboard wouldn't change, but what about my win percentage?
lol. I'm mostly joking, but that Razor is a really solid response
You're welcome for telling you how to handle Seldiora's inevitable semantics argument
AKA "Respond to what I meant, not what I said you turd."
And that's when the handy-dandy Grice's razor comes into play:
"As a principle of parsimony, conversational implications are to be preferred over semantic context for linguistic explanations."
You might want to edit the debate title before some smart alec accepts the debate and tries to make you argue against the Kalam Cosmetological Argument instead of the Kalam Cosmological Argument.
I made one, I was going to make you the automatic opponent, but I wanted to give you time to prepare, if you need to.
