I want to propose a new idea and way to see reality. Obviously, I am not Albert Einstein, so do not expect it to be perfect, rather it is a cool idea.

My idea is to work from these premises in order to set a strict standard under which both the universe, God, evolution and anything one can imagine, can be explained under the same basic rule.

Premise 1. Anything that can possibly exist can be described by many specific truth statements

Premise 2. Any process possible can be described using one or more logical statements

The rule is simple: In order for anything to exist, one must prove that It can fit these criteria

My theory should also be able to systemize the questions concerning reality and creation, both from an atheistic, polytheistic and theistic perspective

Con clearly misses my point.

No attempt at disproving my claims was made by Con.

I am not explaining my world view, I explained why I believe that everything that is true, can be described by truths.

Truth and logic is not my conclusion, but my premise

I propose the idea that anything possible must be explainable by truth and logic

Obviously if truth or logic is not objective, then my theory will fall not alone, but along with all other theories

I think the challenge is trying to understand what this thinking would do to our understanding of reality

truth is defined as what is true, so yeah, of course the truth exists, it exists necessarily, hence this being a truism. That's literally in the name, "tru"-ism. Something which is true into itself. Now, I guess Con could attack the entire logic existing, it depends, logic is very abstract in it's whole "existence" thing, so I guess you could argue that the same way you could argue that math doesn't technically exist, its just a way that humans interpret the universe, but thats a weak argument at best. It seems pretty "truistic" to me

Easy win? Actually, this will not be easy nor necessarily a win. It is a new idea I want to test on others, because "one does not realize one's own flaws"

I guess to try to get an easy win for his first debate?

Any thing like this resolution.... "truth exists" is a truism... why?
