I have one very short argument/question that I'd like to discuss in this debate.

If God is omnipotent, can he create nothing from something without violating the fact that nothing can be created nor destroyed?

The answer is yes.

Violation of a rule only occurs if God chooses not to destroy the rule of no creation or destruction itself.

God has the power to completely abolish the rules of energy conservation and mass conservation and can, at his/her/its will make nothing from something and something from nothing without ever violating this rule.
Can you violate a law if there isn't one?

God can alter history at will, making sure that he/she/it creates that thing at the very origin of a new universe and within that universe leave nothing created or destroyed.

Thus, the answer is most definitely yes.

God is omnipotent.

Can God create an object to heavy to lift? Can he create a being more powerful than Him?

If he truly is omnipotent he should be able to do so, right?

Con

An omnipotent being can lift anything so clearly not.
