First round is for introduction CON constructive case only.
Second round is for PRO constructive case and rebuttals, and for CON is rebuttals and reconstruction.

What's the definition of God?

I see no objective evidence for "God" along with Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, and Leprechauns. Therefore I reasonably disbelieve that he exists because there's no reason to believe that he does.

Over to you pro

Well there's nothing to rebut.

I'll re-affirm what I said in the first round. There's no objective evidence of God so I have no reason to believe that he exists.

The evidence of the existence of God is all around us. There is a philosophical argument: everything that begins to exist had a cause; the universe began to exist; therefore the universe had a cause. There are also arguments regarding design: the universe and laws of nature are ordered, consistent, and extremely specific. If all of creation follows a design, then it stands that there must be a designer. The mere existence of God does not imply ones belief or religious persuasion. There are only three types of people concerning this topic: affirm the proposition (theism), deny the proposition (atheism), or withhold judgment with regard to the proposition (agnosticism). The atheist, however, borders on nihilism to which you might ask of them "why not suicide" and get no answer. The existence of morality itself is evidence that God exists.

I wish Atheist would realize their Santa Clause, Tooth Fairy, and Leprechaun arguments are irrational: These things are easily disproven, while God isn't:

Santa: Don't buy presents for Rich Nice kids and see what happens.
Tooth Fairy: Don't put money under the pillow and see what happens.
Leprechauns: No Rainbow has and "end", therefore there is no Gold there.
God: ????
