Conservapedia suggested that he hold such a debate by November 20, 2011 which he has yet to do so far (see: [[Essay: Conservapedia's challenge to atheist Penn Jillette|Conservapedia's challenge to atheist Penn Jillette]]).

The atheist Penn Jillette says he won't debate me, User:Conservative, on the existence of God because he has friends who are Christians whom he loves/respects and he won't debate me because he doesn't believe I mean what I say about the existence of God (Jillette says I might be an atheist and not a Christian), but on the other hand I might, but he needs to see more evidence of it (Please see: Conservapedia's challenge to atheist Penn Jillette and Penn Jillette's refusal to accept my debate offer).

Penn Jillette, here is the evidence you claim you need to debate me

I, User: Conservative, the issuer of the Consrvapedia debate challenge on the existence of God, largely created Conservapedia's atheism article which is approximately 53 written pages long and has over 300 footnotes. In addition, I largely created Conservapedia's evolution article which is approximately 45 written pages long and has over 300 footnotes.

Now that we have that cleared up, let the written debate of "Does God exist?" begin and I am giving you until November 20, 2011 to fully prepare mind and body for the debate so you are debating at "full atheist power" (please see: Conservapedia's challenge to atheist Penn Jillette). Given the weakness of atheism, I strongly suspect at this point you will soon come up with another excuse on why you won't debate me (or remain silent). However, I don't believe whatever excuses you may offer are the real issue and the section below should settle this matter.

The written debate will be between Penn Jillette and two atheists of his choosing and myself and two Christians of my choosing. I prefer written debates as I believe they offer the audience the maximum amount of information to render a decision. Oral debates are often subject to the participants' memories and also do not allow additional research to be done on particular points (Please see: Conservapedia's challenge to atheist Penn Jillette).

Penn Jillette's lack of formal debates with Bible believing Christians and upcoming deadline

Previously, Conservapedia said "if Jillette declines to debate Conservapedia we certainly strongly encourage him to seek out the strongest Bible believer opponent who is willing to publicly debate him concerning the existence of God". Of course, it appears unlikely Penn Jillette will "seek out the strongest Bible believer opponent who is willing to publicly debate him concerning the existence of God" given the utter weakness of the atheist position and his contradictory and poor response to Conservapedia's debate offer concerning the existence of God. Conservapedia suggested that he hold such a debate by November 20, 2011 which he has yet to do so far (see: Conservapedia's challenge to atheist Penn Jillette).

Penn Jillette, don't just stand there! Do something!


The atheist Penn Jillette watching global atheism burn.[1] Paralyzed with fear, he is afraid to debate biblical Christianity which is exploding in its number of adherents worldwide.[2] Please see: Debate challenge for Penn Jillette. Also, please see the video HERE.

In 2011, the American Spectator citing research published in the International Bulletin of Missionary Research reported that atheism is on the decline as a whole in terms of adherents.[3]

The American Spectator declared:

The report estimates about 80,000 new Christians every day, 79,000 new Muslims every day, and 300 fewer atheists every day. These atheists are presumably disproportionately represented in the West, while religion is thriving in the Global South, where charismatic Christianity is exploding."[4]

In addition, Creation Ministries International's worldwide Question evolution! campaign certainly isn't going to be beneficial to global atheism.

Penn Jillette, when are you going to show that you believe that atheism is a respectable intellectual position through a debate? Don't just stand there Jillette! Do something! Atheism is rather sickly now in terms of its "growth". In fact, atheism is in global decline.
