B18 (Dobbs-V-Preston) 9th Affirmative By Don Preston

DOBBS-V-PRESTON WRITTEN DEBATEDON K. PRESTON’S NINTH AFFIRMATIVE     Dobbs’ last is his worst! Dobbs gets one thing right: “it is the responsibility of the negative to disprove the affirmative’s position. It would be illogical for the negative to accept the burden of proof.” Yet, he refuses to respond to my many affirmative propositions, claiming he does not have to follow…

B17 (Dobbs-V-Preston) 8th Negative By Buster Dobbs

DOBBS’ EIGHTH RESPONSE It is not necessary for the negative to examine convoluted affirmative assertions.   His only responsibility is to show the affirmative’s position is wrong.   There is a difference, brother Preston, in argument and in position, in assertion and in proof. Here is a properly constructed argument: 1.    Jesus will return from heaven to earth a second…

B16 (Dobbs-V-Preston) 8th Affirmative By Don Preston

DOBBS-V-PRESTON WRITTEN DEBATEDON K. PRESTON’S EIGHTH AFFIRMATIVE     Dobbs’ last negative was bad, but his seventh is even worse! Dobbs’ desperation shines:  “The burden of proof is on Don Preston; it is the obligation of the negative to examine the affirmative’s position.” Well, Amen, Buster Dobbs! So why won’t you “examine” my arguments, Buster? I have offered numerous arguments. Dobbs…

B15 (Dobbs-V-Preston) 7th Negative By Buster Dobbs

DOBBS SEVENTH RESPONSE02-17-07 The burden of proof is on Don Preston; it is the obligation of the negative to examine the affirmative’s position. Preston demands that I prove a negative. It is illogical to ask someone to prove something is not.  Preston sounds like a junior-high-school-debater. Is Similarity Identity? Our brother says if things are similar, they are identical –…

B14 (Dobbs-V-Preston) 7th Affirmative By Don Preston

DOBBS-V-PRESTON WRITTEN DEBATEDON K. PRESTON’S SEVENTH AFFIRMATIVE Dobbs has patently abdicated. In my previous, I asked him fourteen direct questions. He ignored every question! Dobbs knows he cannot refute the truth of my arguments, so, he ignores them! This reveals his desperation. Dobbs repeats his mantra: “Similar things are not necessarily identical.” Here was my argument:Jesus– Old Covenant Jerusalem killed…

B13 (Dobbs-V-Preston) 6th Negative By Buster Dobbs

DOBBS’ SIXTH RESPONSE Proving “realized eschatology” is false, answers the affirmative. It is not necessary to follow every jot and tittle of his circuitous “reasoning.” Preston surely knows that similar things are not necessarily identical. Syllogism1. At his final advent, Jesus will destroy the universe (2 Pet 3:8-10)2. It is inarguable that the universe continues Conclusion: Jesus has not come…

B12 (Dobbs-V-Preston) 6th Affirmative by Don Preston

DOBBS-V-PRESTON WRITTEN DEBATEDON K. PRESTON’S SIXTH AFFIRMATIVE SUBMITTED 5-26-06 Brother Dobbs has capitulated. His last is one of the worst “negatives” I have ever seen offered in debate. I made eight affirmative arguments, asking for direct answers. He ignored everything, claiming one argument was “incoherent.” He claims he has no responsibility to respond! I offered;Jesus– Old Covenant Jerusalem killed the…

B11 (Dobbs-V-Preston) 5th Negative By Buster Dobbs

Dobbs’ Fifth Response Introduction Preston’s opening argument in his 5th affirmative is: [Quote]Jesus- Old Covenant Jerusalem killed the prophets, Jesus, and his apostles and prophets (Matthew 23:29f; Luke 11:49f). Paul- Old Covenant Jerusalem killed the prophets, Jesus, and was persecuting the apostles and prophets of Jesus (1 Thess. 2:15f; 2 Thess. 1:4f)(sic).John- The city Babylon had killed the prophets (16:6f)(sic),…

B10 (Dobbs-V-Preston) 5th Affirmative by Don Preston

DOBBS-V-PRESTON WRITTEN DEBATEDON K. PRESTON’S FIFTH AFFIRMATIVE Submitted 5-5-06 Dobbs criticizes, but does not refute. He ridicules me for not following him on 2 Peter 3. I am the affirmative, he the negative. He is to follow me, which he fails, badly, to do. He has not, once, examined one of my syllogisms, and tried to prove my propositions wrong.…
