Islam is a theistic religion
Buddhism is an atheistic religion

Atheism and theism constantly compete,

I want to prove that under no circumstances can any of them claim superiority if they are distilled from their respective world views

Feel free to concede the debate. I don't really want to have a long long debate about this topic in the forums though, mainly because the resolve is a semantic issue.

Could we move this debate to the forums?
It seems hard to pull it off in this competition envoroment.

Lol "late"... Waiting until the last second is my specialty

Sorry for being late, I thought it was posted

Could you change the reply time to at lest a couple more days? I'm pretty sure 1 day is impossible as most of us are from different timezones.

People on this debate platform seem to actually care about debating in a good manner, cool.

Only one day to reply?

So the resolution is really more like "atheism and theism both use faith equally" or atheism and theism are both faiths."?

Added:
--> @Benjamin

Uh huh, yeah, I definitely disagree, but I'm already in a couple debates I want to at least finish one before I accept anything else.

Added:

--> @Sum1hugme

I will only focus on showing that they are both faiths

Added:
Contender
--> @Benjamin

Are you saying that you'll be arguing all of these? That seems quite a large burden of proof. Especially with the tight character limit

Added:
Instigator
--> @Sum1hugme

Both are claims about the ultimate reality

Both cannot be proven scientifically

Both have been the starting point for religion

Both grow mostly by convincing others and not through reproduction

Both are based on blind faith until they are incorporated into a broader world view

etc

--> @Benjamin

Equal in what way? Education? Doctrinal length? Practices?

Added:

--> @Wagyu

Think of it as a challenge.

We will not debate too broadly, but rather specifically.

I will increase the word limit to 8 thousand, ok?

Added:
--> @Benjamin

Increase the world limit to 20 000 and i may consider taking this debate. Unless having a low character to work with is the challenge...

There's a typo in the topic btw
