Theism Atheism (materialism) debate.

Greetings all,

The most basic philosophical question that can be asked is why are we here? Why is there something rather than nothing? What (if anything) caused our existence?

The two most basic philosophical beliefs regarding this question are:

1. We are the result of plan and intention by a personal agents(s) who caused us to exist.

2. We are the unintended result of mindless forces that caused our existence through blind happenstance.


I'd be happy defend proposition 1 and oppose proposition 2...
