"You believe in death and chaos, so I have proven you believe in magic/mythological ideas"
That is the most moronic thing ive ever seen. All you did is post a forum where we can see you make idiotic claim after idiotic claim that get slapped down one by one. In what world do you think this is a victory? Do you think this makes you look good? This makes you look even dumber than you make yourself look on here. And i didnt think that was possible

"You're welcome, but it's not the end of the world, or this debate.
And may I say I'm honored that you have taken the time to read through my previous debates, just like I have taken the time to read through your countless links.
To clear things up, I'd like to redefine 'myth', in a way that a 3 year old can understand. Myth: Fake. Fiction. Not real. Simple enough? And we atheists do not believe in fiction or imaginary dudes.
Also, I have grown tired of your links. You don't have to attach a Wikipedia page to demonstrate there is an idea of a Grim Reaper to win the 'most reliable sources' mark. In other words, you don't have to find a Wikipedia page of an apple to educate us that an apple is a fruit.
Now let me interpret what you are saying, in more bold and honest terms: Death exists. So do interpretations of death. Therefore death is mythological. Chaos exists. There is a myth about chaos, and therefore chaos is a myth. Cranes symbolize immortality because of their longevity in Taoism, and therefore cranes are a myth.
Do you notice how absurd that is? You sound like a 3 year old saying that her imaginary friend has a name, so therefore it's real. That creeps me out in some way.
Yes, we believe death exists. But not the Grim Reaper. Chaos exists, but not its Greek counterpart. Pluto exists, but not on a throne in Hell. Jupiter exists, but it doesn't have a majestic beard and carry lightning bolts. Evidence, observation and logic are true, but don't misinterpret it with fiction, a nickname, or some Native American bird. Truth is real, fiction is fiction.
Your examples, they all exist. But just like any religion's holy texts, they're just barging in and trying to get attention. (If you've read my debate about human morality.)
You have not proven death, chaos, Pluto or anything are mythological concepts, not even close. I suggest you refine a line between logic from myth, reality from fiction. Look up about schizophrenia.
Jedd doesn't believe in mythological concepts. Jedd is an atheist. But you have not met your burden of proof, no, not even close.
Bronto believes myths are real. Bronto is...not proving anything. He needs to know that myth is myth, truth is truth.
Thank you Bronto for the debate."
Its funny how bronto thinks he WON this debate when its clear that anyone who read through it saw how badly he got spanked. Even most of the comments are either A) asking him to clarify what the fuck hes talking about or B) pointing out how hes an idiot weaving sophistry and that they dont wish to waste time debating him.
All you did the entire debate was post links. Thats all you do on THIS site too. That isnt debating. Thats sending someone a job. What youre supposed to do is make an argument in which you might make certain claims. THEN you post a link that is the evidence for those claims in case the opponent wants to check the veracity of your claims. But you dont make any arguments or claims. You just say "im right" and then post like 10 links. He even goes through and thoroughly destroys most of your links. And you dont even defend them! Theyre YOUR sources! Defend them! But you dont, you just bull on ahead and post more and more links. And he gets fed up with it eventually. The debate premise is retarded. "Atheists believe in mythological things". Thats a bullshit statement on its face. Thats like saying "Christians believe pink is the best color ever". Its just stupid. CAN atheists believe in mythological things? Sure. Some atheists arent skeptics. They might believe in ghosts. Or the might believe in psychic powers. Yes those people CAN and DO exist. But your broad statement that Atheists in general believe those things is fucking ridiculous.
All this debate proved is you got spanked. Thanks for the comedy, i needed a laugh

So you (and Jedd) openly admit that I was right.
-----He even goes through and thoroughly destroys most of your links. And you dont even defend them! Theyre YOUR sources!-----
Because this was an obvious troll debate on Jedd. If you do not understand the concept of a troll debate, your parents failed you in your chilhood education, which is simply not my problem.
----Do you notice how absurd that is? You sound like a 3 year old saying that her imaginary friend has a name, so therefore it's real. That creeps me out in some way.----
If reality creeps you out, I offer courses on how to be a man and how to evict your inner wussy. Do you want the links or can you face reality without them?

CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy. If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
- Arguments with the highest score are displayed first. Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument. To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
- To vote for an argument, use these icons: You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument. Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change. Yes, you can change your vote.
- Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account. All scores are updated in real-time. To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
