I will be taking the stance that God does not exist, while my opponent provides evidence that he does exist.
Comment if interested.

In accepting this debate I challenge my opponent to rise above the ad hominem attack as evidenced in their previous debate on this topic: http://www.debate.org...

The case for the existence of God is subjective.

One can cite references of organization reputed to be above the law of chance such as the singular hallucinations experienced by the Fatima occurrence or UFO descriptions reported by respected authorities; But the doubt remains until one experiences for themselves an undeniable event.

The benefit of the doubt exists then even for the most adamant of opposition and leads inexorably towards a face-off, a do-or-die scenario involving the participants and their systems of belief.

Would like to accept. Not sure if I meet the criteria, and since topic is in the form of a question both parties should share BoP.

I might be willing to accept, but I have a question: In order for me to win, what kind of God can I show to exist?

I'd be happy to argue with this topic that I've argued with people about many times, but the rank is needed.

I WOULD LOVE TO ACCEPT but I am not in the age limit or rank criteria if you lower it maybe I can try and connote to you that there is a God.

Can ViceRegent prove that the SpagettiMonster does not exist?
Can ViceRegent prove that Kylo Ren does not exist?
Can ViceRegent prove that the Hindu Gods do not exist?

ViceRegent,
If you are willing to debate me on this subject, than you must offer arguments that are not as simplistically disproved like the one above.
