Science believes in the existence of those objects which we can percipience through our senses. When we cannot, we do not simply term them as non-existing, but we do regard them to be hypothetical until proved to not be. God is someone who, we have all at some point of time, questioned about being. No. God does not exist. Nothing in this world cannot be attributed to physical or mental phenomena. There is no person who created the universe. There is no onlooker.

My opponent offers no definition of God other than "someone who, we have all at some point of[sic] time, questioned about being." Now no offence to those who suffer from mental retardation of any form or shape or as a side effect of a disease such as Alzheimer's or Down's syndrome but to claim we have all at some point in time questioned God is very presumptuous to say the least.

I shall now offer a definition of God (who ironically I do not personally believe in but do not believe one can claim doesn't exist).

According to http://oxforddictionaries.com... God is a superhuman being or spirit worshipped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity.

The worshipping is apparent all over the world and the deity itself is apparent in the form of statues, scripture and simply in the fact that the very first matter and energy that originally 'magically' came to be somehow end up having no explanation in metaphysics other than that they seeped through from another dimension (which could be argued to be the God dimension). Even in physics there is the Higgs Boson.

The Higgs boson or Higgs particle is an elementary particle predicted almost 50 years ago to exist by the Standard Model of particle physics. In 2012 a previously unknown boson was discovered; its properties are still being studied in 2013 to confirm whether or not it is the Higgs boson. In mainstream media the Higgs boson is often referred to as the "God particle".

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org...

Essentially all that God is, is a supernatural force that we assign the attribute of having created what even quantum physics can't explain the origin of: Everything. While it's true to say that we also can't explain the origin of God I do not at all see a single way in which you can assert that God does not exist.
