2. It is greater to exist than not to exist.

You're not really debating, but writing down two very general statements, then trying to tie it to your argument.

I'll try to do a rebuttal anyhow.

"God is the greatest conceivable being."
Where is your proof? How do you know this? Have you seen him? Have you met him? Have you heard him talk to you?
Absence of proof is proof of absence.

"It is greater to exist than not to exist."
I don't have any idea how this is an argument for this topic, or for the point of view that God truly exists.

"Therefore, God Exists."
Your first "argument" has no proof to back it up. Absence of proof is proof of absence.
Your second argument is almost irrelevant.
So tell me, how did you arrive at this misconception?

Now that you have seen my opponent forfeit the last round, he clearly does not have the confidence, nor the intelligence to respond to my arguments.

I would appreciate it if you vote for me, the one person in this debate that has bothered to actually debate.

You're the idiot. Science strives to prove and disprove.

Con is an idiot. There's no proof of anything at all existing, since science doesn't deal in proofs.

Furthermore there are many logically sound arguments which show that an intelligent Creator exists.

By the exact same logic: Science cannot explain the creation of the world or it's inhabitants

Evolution is scientifically inconclusive and therefor does not meet the criteria to
be "Proof" of anything other than an additional theory exists.

Microbiological study has revealed that the earth does not posess the catylyst
necessary to spontaneously create life and the big bang theory has already been
proven to be flawed in that: At some point...intelligent design would have to have
come into play

You are using a very rough version of Aquinas' ontological argument which has very little credibility among philosophers. While I agree with you that God exists, I believe you are arguing it very poorly. I suggest that you find some better arguments.
