Before we can discuss any claim, we need to establish what is acceptable as evidence for a claim, hence my question about John.
John asserts that his Magic Talking Socks are the Power that is Life and without that Power life would not exist.
Do you accept that John has provided sufficient evidence to support his claim?
If - as I suspect - you feel that John has NOT provided sufficient evidence, what evidence would you wish him to provide?
I accepted this debate to talk about the existence of God. I don't care if John believes in socks. I know too much about socks. I wear them on my feet everyday.
God is a mystery.
