Od exists? OR God doesnt exist? OR We should believe in God? OR We shouldnt believe in God?

You have a choice, you can argue that God exists or we should believe in God or God does not exist or we should not believe in God. The side that you take need not be what you actually believe. It can be, but it doesnat have to be your actual belief.

First, very clearly tell me what you will be arguing for, in an introductory paragraph.

Next, provide the strongest argument you can for your position. You should assume, for this paper, that your reader (me) takes the opposite viewpoint from you, but is not dogmatic. So, if you are arguing in favor of Godas existence, assume that your reader is an agnostic, at best. If you arguing against Godas existence, assume that your teacher is a believer, but not a very fervent one.

Then, mention any weaknesses that there might be in your argument or criticisms that could be raised against it. Having done this, say how you would answer the criticisms. Since no argument on either side is perfect a if there were a perfect argument we would all be believers or atheists a you ought to be able to point out some possible flaw.

Next, provide the strongest argument for the other side. If you are arguing against belief in God, briefly sketch the strongest argument for belief. If you are arguing for belief in God, briefly sketch the strongest argument against belief.

Then, in a concluding paragraph offer a criticism of this counterargument and explain why the argument you initially gave is a stronger argument. Sum up and offer any additional thoughts you might want to add.
