Description

Ra is the great God.

Round 1
Pro
#1
Great beast of the sky
I beg of thee, Hear my cry
Transform yourself from the orb of light
And bring me victory in this fight

Envelop the deserts with your glow
And cast your rage upon my foe
Awaken your powers from deep within
So that together we may win

I ask thee, grace our humble game
But first I shall call out thy name
All powerful Sun God Ra!

Argument: Ra is Not the True God

Definition: A true god is defined as a deity possessing supreme authority, omnipotence, omniscience, and moral perfection, with substantiated existence.

Evidence:
  1. Historical Context: Ra is a figure from Egyptian mythology, a polytheistic belief system lacking historical evidence.
  2. Contradictions in Attributes: Ra, like other Egyptian gods, exhibits human-like flaws and engages in morally questionable behavior.
  3. Lack of Universal Recognition: Ra was worshipped in limited regions and not universally acknowledged, questioning his authenticity on a global scale.
  4. Religious Evolution: Egyptian mythology, including worship of Ra, declined as societies evolved, highlighting the transient and culturally contingent nature of such beliefs.
  5. Scientific Understanding: Scientific advancements have provided alternative explanations for phenomena once attributed to divine intervention, diminishing reliance on supernatural explanations, including Ra.
Conclusion: Ra fails to meet the criteria of a true god. Belief in Ra as the true god lacks reliable evidence and logical reasoning.

Can you prove that Ra doesnt exist?
Con
#4
I have proved Ra to be a mythological figure with no evidence of actual existence. Maybe he does exist, but PRO has not fullfilled his BoP to prove that he does.

Since there is no proof that Ra doesnt exist, the only logical conclusion is that Ra exists.
Con
#6
PRO has no arguments or evidence. The resolution fails.
