بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ


In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

This paper of introduction has been copied from Rhoblogy. Edited a "bit" and pasted here, because I couldn't find any better expressions.
It is my pleasure to introduce yet another formal debate, in which I will be denying the resolution conclusively:

Resolved: The Bible is the Word of God.


Affirming the resolution is Rhology, an American Christian, of http://rhoblogy.blogspot.com.

The structure is a little unusual in for both of us, but it is a result of extensive negotiation.

Rhology's opening: 2000 words maximum, due 03 Jan 2012.
My rebuttal/opening: 3500 max, due 08 Jan 2012.
Rhology's rebuttal: 2000 max, due 13 Jan 2012.
My rebuttal: 1500 max, due 17 Jan 2012.
Rhology's rebuttal: 1000 max, due 22 Jan 2012.

Rhology will ask me the first cross-examination question on 23 Jan which I will be answering on 24 Jan.
Then I ask him a cross-examination question on 24 Jan, and he will answer on 25 Jan.
Then he asks on 25 Jan and I answer on 26 Jan.
Then I ask on 26 Jan and he answers on 27 Jan.
Each question must be framed in 300 words max and each answer in 1000 maximum.

Final statements: 3000 words max. Posted simultaneously 31 Jan.

I plan to post all the content on my facebook page, and he will be posting his on his blog mentioned above. Given that Facebook sometimes suffers from limited profile visibility, I will also post all the content here, delayed though.
On his blog, comments will be disabled for all the debate posts, but each will contain a link to one single comment thread where anyone may comment on the thread. However you will be free to comment here or on my page. Comments on the page might be answered but the questions posted here will be answered only after the debate is over.

Thank you, and may Allah (swt) bless this debate and use it for His glory in every way.
