First, I want to make clear that I am an atheist. I believe that what is reality is everything that can be proven to exist and nothing more

But I am arguing that God can indeed exist, which you might find a strange point of view for an atheist. I believe that for those who truly believe that there is a God, he is real for them. I believe this because :the fact that God has not been proven ever in any sense is proof that therefore God is solely a being that exists in the minds of the believers. People believe in God so that they can have hope for something better and so that they can feel grateful to something. For those who truly believe in God, they also truly believe that God gives them hope. This, in itself is proof of God's existence.

Wish I could have been the con on this one... So..back when people believed the earth was flat, does that mean the earth was flat, but now it's round because we prove it so?

Yeah, pretty hard to show that that belief doesn't exist in your head. I daresay it's not a good belief, and I believe it's false, however... there's no way to lose this one without conceding that that isn't your belief and never was.

I thought I'd point out that, technically, the way the title is phrased, you win by default... because the con would be having to disprove that you *think* that God exists for said people.
