This debate is about the existance of the Christian God. I am Con, meaning I think he doesn't exist. The Pro should hopefully answer these two questions: why is Christianity right but thousands of other religions aren't, and what is the proof of God's existance. Please don't use arguments like "You can't disprove the existence of God!", because they doesn't prove God's existence.

Round 1
Con
So first, what is existence?

The definition of existence is actual and present occurence (www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/existence), meaning that something has to be present somewhere right now. To prove God's existence, you would have to show that he is present somewhere right now.

And second, what is my stance on the topic?
I lack belief in the existence of the Christian God. I haven't seen any actual proof of him existing, such as recordings, videos, experiments, etc. I don't believe that God doesn't exist, however. By the definition of the Bible, god is omnipresent (www.blueletterbible.org/faq/don_stewart/don_stewart_364.cfm), meaning that he is everywhere at once. Because of that, it's impossible to disprove his existence. 

Analogy: Someone says that there's a unicorn in your house. You search the house and find no proof of the unicorn, so you conclude he isnt there. But if someone says unicorns exist, there is no way to disprove that, because we can't search the entire universe at once. But since no proof of the unicorn is actually presented, you would assume that unicorns don't exist until proven otherwise. This is my stance on God's existence: until I see proof of him, I will believe that he doesn't exist.

Your turn.

Another forfeit. This is called bad conduct. At least write me a message explaining why you can't debate.
