A battle of theology. Each of us shall do their best to create a religion with its own beliefs, pantheon, and history. IT MUST BE FICTITIOUS. Voters will decide who wins based on its believability(could it convert you?), cohesiveness(does it contradict itself anywhere), and just how interesting it is(make it cool bruh). Inspiration may come from outside sources and pictures are allowed, either made yourself or(if you are untalented like myself) stolen from the internet. If your theology is too closely resembling an existing theology(The God of my pantheon is Yeezus who was killed by capitalist Romans on a cross) than that is grounds for disqualification. That said, if it randomly resembles some super unknown fan fic religion, we can possibly let it pass. Just try to be honest. The first round is used only for the purpose of explaining your theology. The second round may be used to further explain your theology or attempt to debunk their theology as they explained in the round prior. And may the best theologian win!

I'd like to do this debate with someone.
Anyone. This is a field of very niche interest for me and I have no outlet.

does your sarcasm ever bore you

What a fantastic theme for a debate. Who ever wins should think about hosting a tv show based on that religion. You should also get a woman cohost that would have coal-black streaks of mascara that would run down her eyelids.

As in a D&D sort of thing or more a novel world? I mean, if its cool no one is gonna mind you sharing.

Neither shall I. I am surprised someone accepted this so quickly. I am also both honored and intimidated that it is someone as experienced as yourself. I hope I can prove a fun contender, this should be a good time.

Religions tend to adhere to a typical format.

Something to ritually worship and embellish unnecessarily.

I will be interested to see if either of you can come up with something new.

I won't forfeit this.

I'm into creative writing, and showcasing a couple of the religions I've designed for my stories could be fun, they contextually wouldn't fit (they're part of the world I write, making sense there, but would certainly not have appeal to convert anyone here).
