Resolve: The historic Reformed Evangelical Definition of the Resurrection of the Dead is inclusive of the self-same body of the believer

PaulT’s responsibility is to affirm the Reformed Evangelical Definition of the Resurrection of the Dead as inclusive of the self-same body of the believer.

Noble’s responsibility will be to deny this definition while offering an alternative definition that the nature of the resurrection of the dead is something other than the resurrection of the self-same body.

The order of the debate will consist as follows; PaulT will post the 1st affirmative consisting of no more than 400 words. Within 24 hours of posting Noble will respond with a rebuttal consisting of no more than 200 words and post his 400 word 1st affirmative at that same time. PaulT will have 24 hours to post his 200 word rebuttal posting at the same time his 1500 word second affirmative. Noble will have 24 hours in which to ask his 1st of 5 questions that will consist of no more than 50 words. PaulT will have 24 hours to answer the question with a response consisting of no more that 100 words. Within 24 hours of the posting of the last answer Noble must post his second affirmative consisting of no more than 1500 words. Within 24 hours of posting Noble’s 1500 word second affirmative PaulT must ask his 1st question consisting of no more than 50 words. Noble must have his answer consisting of no more than 100 words posted within 24 hours. This process will continue until all 5 questions are asked and answered. At the conclusion of the final question PaulT will have 48 hours in which to post his closing. After PaulT’s closing has been posted Noble will have 48 hours to post his closing.

If at anytime postings are not posted within the required time parameters the party not positing within that time parameter forfeits the debate.

The 1st affirmative will be posted 11/6/2010
