Thanks again for your posts.
Once again, this is how a debate works.
The affirmative usually goes first. In other words, I would give my points to how I can "prove" God exists.
THEN, the negative side would give their points to why they can "prove" that God DOES NOT exist.
THEN, we are both scored on the positive points we brought top the argument.
If one side presented no positive points, then they get NO points.
NEXT. The negative (in this case the atheist) disputes all the points the affirmative made.
THEN, the affirmative disputes the case the negative made.
THEN.... points are tallied for both side.
I don't think that's how it works. Neither you or your opponent gets a say in which side wins. Unless, of course, one side ends up stating they concede a point, ending the debate.
