My arguments/topic is focused on the Catholic god/religion.

Please. No swearing, short arguments/statements, or abusive arguments/statements. This is a serious and civilised debate topic. Good luck.

There isn"t any real evidence or proof that god exists. The overall religion is a belief that many people focus their entire life based on this belief. Catholics believe that the bible is proof that god exists but there is no evidence that the book is real, a small group of people could have made it the first "novel" of the time.

Secondly, one of the 10 commandment was, "Thy shall not kill" but the crusades was killing other people in the name of god. Why would "god" allow his believers to kill other people even though he said "thy shall not kill" in his commandments.

The Old Testament God need not be interpreted literally. Most of the Bible uses metaphor to explain very grand concepts or lessons. It is also a book that was written 3000 years ago. Just play a game of telephone in a class room and you can imagine how things could change over 3000 years.

God is something much more personal. It's not a mathematical equation that can be solved. Context will always make the idea of God relative. Relativity will also make the idea of God relative.

The Christian version of God is probably more like explaining source code in the matrix. Let me put it this way. You can picture a chair right? Can you picture a short chair? Can you picture a black chair? Now picture the idea or form that is the blueprint for all chairs. Does that idea exist? If not, then how do chairs exist?

I don't think we can define God, yet. However, I think it's obvious that there's a grand force governing all of existence. Time does not necessarily apply to what we imagine as God.

Idiocy, " I think it's obvious that there's a grand force governing all of existence. Time does not necessarily apply to what we imagine as God." the god character is nothing more than a character of a book.
And the force, Obvious? Then prove it exists.

I'd also advise "Pro" to lessen the use of religious metaphors - atheists love that sort of thing and will try to jump on board and claim "illogical" argument to you. Overall good response though.

"Con" side reasoning is weak, and reiterates myths and semantic attacks atheists have been spouting for decades.
