Debate: Does the God of the Bible Exist? (Kyle Butt / Dan Barker)
A debate between Kyle Butt and Dan Barker was conducted on the campus of the University of South Carolina in Columbia on February 12, 2009. Of all the significant questions pertaining to human existence, none is more crucial than whether the God of the Bible exists. If He does exist, all human beings are obligated to come to a knowledge of His will and render obedience to Him. Those who fail to do so will face eternal punishment (2 Corinthians 5:10-11). If, on the other hand, the God of the Bible does not exist, human behavior remains a matter of subjective, human inclination. Atheist and theist meet in this historic confrontation. Kyle Butt defended the proposition, "The God of the Bible does exist." Dan Barker denied this proposition.
