In most of the holy texts I would agree with you. However the Bible has no contradictions in it. At the most there were some justified grammatical errors but not from the original manuscripts. If you want more information on contradictions in the Bible look up Answers In Genesis contradiction scripture index where all of the supposed contradictions are very well answered. Pertaining to how there are no good arguments I will give one due to lack of time. The Teleological Argument (Fine Tuned Argument) argues that all of the quantities and constants of the universe were finely tuned for life to exist because the quantities and constants are in a life permitting range and if altered by the slightest margins no physical interactive life could exist anywhere. For example if the expansion rate of the universe were altered in one part in 10^55 then either no galaxies would form (if larger) or the universe would have collapsed before stars began to form (if smaller). According to the argument there are only 3 explanations for the discovery either physical necessity, chance, or design caused this to occur. Physical necessity is expunged immediately since it is more likely that the fine tuned quantities to be impossible more than possible. And the probably of all this happening by chance is so infinitesimal that it would not occur, the last explanation design is the most plausible. Or in other words God Exists.

Side: Yes, There Are Good Arguments
Time and time again, we find that there is a complete lack of evidence for God's existence. In a world that should be brimming with evidence in the case of a God, we find nothing. In all Holy Texts, we find contradictions and false information. We find the problem of evil and why it exists has yet to be solved. Because of all of this and much more, we say that there are no good arguments for God's existence.
Side: No, There Are Not Any
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.
