The existence of god is an idea forced upon everybody. Unlike karma believers, astrology believers or reincarnation believers, god believers constantly try to impose their version of belief on others.
GOD: Creater [and ruler] of the universe who is considered omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent and omnibenevolent. (It is my definition. The contender may dispute it in the comments before s/he accepts the challenge)
EXIST: : to have real being whether material or spiritual
did unicorns exist
the largest galaxy known to exist
b: to have being in a specified place or with respect to understood limitations or conditions
strange ideas existed in his mind
2: to continue to be

1) 1 ARGUMENT ONLY:
This debate is dedicated to dispute 1 attempt to persuade people into thinking god exists. PRO has to provide only 1 argument, 1 argument he thinks the best and we will debate that.
2) 3 ROUNDS ONLY:
The debate is set to 4 rounds but only 3 round will be for disputation. In the first round, I will pass the round stating "nothing to be writtin in this round". Similarly, PRO will have to write "nothing to be written in this round". Thus, both sides will have 3 rounds in total.
PRO has to raise 1 argument only and that must be expressed in the first round. Later rounds will be to dispute that argument, introducing new argument[s] by PRO in later rounds results in automatic disqualification - voters should keep it mind.
CON raises no argument. CON is to rebutt PRO's argument.
CON (me) is not allowed to bring something new in the last round speech of his, as PRO will no longer have round to respond back. CON's last round speech solely has to be focused on rebutting what PRO said in his last round - CON violating this rule results in automatic disqualification. Voters should keep it mind.
4) NO AD HOMINEMS.
Ad hominems or even insulting the opponent results in automatic disqualification.
5) NO PERSONAL EXPERIENCE ARGUMENTS ALLOWED
PRO can raise philosophical argument which we can dispute on the standards we have. Talking like "I have seen god yesterday. He revealed me answers of my next exam and I passed the exam. God exists" results in automatic disqualificaiton.
Similarly, CON is not allowed to appeal to personal issues like "My friend knows that this argument has been refuted." etc. Arguments must be put forth here.
The evidence to show something exists has to be seen. Not only I would be able to observe it but you and everybody else.You're looking to be able to test it. Something demonstrable and repeatable is within the scientific method. That's what evidence is.
Let's look at the foundation of everything concerning existence. The science of everything existing are under scientific laws.We have the laws of physics, law of gravity, law of causality and so on.
Hume argues that we cannot conceive of any other connection between cause and effect, because there simply is no other impression to which our idea may be traced. This certitude is all that remains. For Hume, the necessary connection invoked by causation is nothing more than this certainty.
