Hello I will be debating on the side of god
I am not religous I do come from a religous background and I will still refute his argument.
For the sake of a good a quick debate the burden of proof is on both of us and I don't need to 100% confirm he is real (ai know I can't nor can anyone) just to show that he can or may exist.

Since the title is god is not real the burden of proof is on you I am agnostic and since no one can really disprove god then your argument fails

"God Is Entirely Subjective"
That means that God is only in the minds of individuals and every individual has their own completely different Mind God, which is the most correct Concept.

No two people ever worship exactly the same God.
God is Subjective.

I seem to notice that folks who don't accept the existence of God tend to. like the present pro party, set forth a negative proposition, namely: "God is not real."

It does not sound correct, coming from the pro party, because as a pro (pro means in favor of) party he is supposed to advance an affirmative statement, while the con (against) party is to play the role of contradicting the positive statement of the pro advocate.

How can the pro party rephrase his position, "God is not real," in an affirmative form?

What about "God is a fiction"?

That means that God is all in the mind only.

What is essentially deficient in a negative statement, like "God is not real," is that the party making the statement must show that nowhere and at no time in the whole universe is there a real (as opposed to unreal) entity identified as God.

That requires him to bring his opponent to search every nook and cranny of the universe in the whole time history of the universe to not encounter a real entity called God.

That is an impossible task.

But if the pro party sets forth his statement in this manner, "God is a fiction in man's brain," then it is possible for him to search for God in the brain of his opponent, and show that there is no real entity called God in the brain of his opponent.

How to search for God in the brain of a human being?

What about asking medical technicians to do a good number of brain scans?

At the end of the day, both parties must work first to come to concurrence on what is the concept of God they have in mind (pun not intended).

Atheists for being materialists will opt for a God that is a material entity, in which case brain scans can show that there is no material God in the brain of man.

And theists will insist that from all traditions of theism God has always been conceived as a non-material being, not subject to quantification like matter and energy.

Pro has to prove god doesn't exist so it will be a hard fight for him im not sure which context though

I suppose there is a difference between Existing and being Real.
God exists in ppl's minds, but that is not God being Real that is Empirically Objective.
Though does Real mean Empirically Objective in the context of this debate?
