Debate; Does God exist?

In case you missed the debate, here is the video on our channel, un-edited;

Thanks go to the Joseph, Caroline and Andrew (SDA Church) for organising and running this excellent event.

Let us know how we did in the comments here or on youtube. There is likely more to come in the debate department, with at least two on the immediate horizon, stay tuned.


  1. Is the Seventh-day Adventist version edited?

    I became an atheist one year and three days ago, and my old church pastor told me to watch this debate - and after watching the first few seconds of the intro - I looked up the "Sydney Atheists" - I think I'll watch this version...

    1. Thanks for looking us up. This version should be the same as the one you linked, however we have been allowed to mirror it to our own youtube channel to share the hits and revenue from the video.

    Atheists claim there is no God, but do they believe it? Is it possible that atheists simply deny that there is a God? Is it plausible that atheists know there is a God, but because of pride, choose not to acknowledge the existence of God?

    James 2:19 You believe that God is one. You do well; that demons also believe, and shudder.

    Strange that demons believe in God, but atheists claim they do not believe there is a God.

    Mark 1:23-24 Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 saying, "What business do we have with each other Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are---The Holy One of God!"

    Atheists proclaim they do know or believe that there is a God. Unclean spirits not only believe that Jesus is The Holy One of God, but that he has the power to destroy them.

    Psalm 14:1 The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good.

    Do some men deny there is a God as a self deception. If there is no God then there is no right from wrong, no good and evil. If there is no God then men can create a moral code that comports with their lifestyle.

    Romans 1:19-20 because that which is know about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse,

    God has made it evident in every man that He exists. Denying God does not change the fact of the existence of God.

    Psalms 19:1 The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.

    All you have to do to believe there is God, is look up!

    1 Corinthians 20-21 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

    The foolish wisdom of the world cannot prove that there is no God.

    Through the preaching of the gospel men can believe in God and that Jesus is the Son of God!



    1. Please don't build an atheist strawman. Atheist don't claim there is no god, they lack belief in God(s). Just as you lack beliefs in Woden and Zeus, and all the other Gods that came before Yahweh, we just take it one further and lack belief in Yahweh.

      Trying to use the bible to support your beliefs doesn't make them rational, it is circular reasoning. The bible is true, because the bible tells us it is.

      But I can quote the bible too, in counter to your arguments
      "whoever says, 'You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell." Matthew 5:22

      See any sufficiently large text can be quote mined to support ones own beliefs.

      Good luck getting some followers, I think you are barking up the wrong tree here though.
