why not. I saw CalebEr's argument but I think there's a better way to argue this.

Debate Format:
Round One: Introduction and Arguments
Round Two: Rebuttals
Round Three: Recapitulation and Conclusion

Definitions:
Atheism- "a lack of belief or a strong disbelief in the existence of a god or any gods"
The burden of Proof- "the duty of proving a disputed assertion or charge"
(Both definitions from Merriam Webster)

Full resolution
Atheists have a burden of proof with regards to showing god does not exist.

Oooh, sounds like a good time, lol. I'll challenge him after I have my argument written for our debate.

Please debate tradesecret on this topic. I've given it my best go to persuade him on forums but my efforts have been without result. It'll be a funny one to watch.

Its all fine, though I have once again barely squeezed in my point, I spent like 10 minutes trying to get it succinct enough to fit within the character limits.

Btw, I only had like 15 characters left, so I really milked that space for all it was worth.
