Creates everything from nothing. Creates man and woman and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Because god is omniscient and knows everything before it will happen, he knows that they will eat from the tree before he even creates the tree or Adam and Eve. He creates them anyways (nevermind also creating Satan, knowing he will fall from grace and tempt eve into eating of the tree). From this we can deduce that he must have intended for Adam and Eve to eat from the tree. It is impossible for an omniscient and omnipotent being to create something that happens and NOT intend for it to happen. That would be a contradiction.
You cant know what will happen ahead of time, set things up that way, and then absolve yourself of the results.
So God intentionally caused the fall of man. Not only does he punish adam and eve but every single descendant of them as well. Thats abhorrent. Punishing the great great great 50x greats grandkids of adam and eve who broke god's law is abhorrent enough. But punishing them for adam and eve's crime which god himself orchestrated?
Its like a parent taking a hammer to their own TV and then blaming the kid for it AND their grandchildren and every descendant thereafter.
It makes absolutely no sense. And i know the likely response is trying to draw some line of separation between god's morals and man's morals and how god has some infinitely higher morality that we cant possibly understand and blah blah blah that somehow makes this obvious moral conundrum okay.
Just know out of the gate i reject the bible as true and i reject god's morality as anything more than an extension of man's own morality projected onto a god.
So thats basically my opening argument. We dont even have to get into god's laws or the books of the bible or the commandments or any of that. Because i reject the entire moral basis for the founding story of the judeo christian tradition.

Welcome to CreateDebate
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.
- When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument. If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
