If God does not exist, then the universe and everything in it were created by mere chance, just purposeless forces of nature. Thus if the universe has no purpose, then human existence ultimately has no meaning whatsoever.

One might argue that our lives do have meaning because we can influence others or affect the course of history. But this only shows a relative significance to our lives, not an ultimate significance. Our lives may be important relative to certain events, but what is the ultimate significance of any of those events? If all the events are meaningless, then what can be the ultimate meaning of influencing any of them? Ultimately it makes no difference.

Well first of all, why does God matter?
Why does he define us?
Why is he this huge being?
He is just another human.
A folkstory that got large.
God doesn't define us.
We define us, the people who risk thier lives everyday to help and save us.

That is one of the driving force of these kids that walk into a school and start to shoot everybody in sight. Columbine, sandyhook.Thye have been infected with Darwinism. We are just accidents of nature. Nothing is real, even death. And then throw in strife towards people, and that makes perfect recipe for these shootings. Of course liberalism tries to fix it with metal detectors and zero tolerance rules. Gun free zones are an invitation to these freaks to cause as much damage as they can.Every one of them turned the gun on themselves when confronted with a good guy with a gun.

Like the video games they were masters at. This is not real.

Unless it was an Acceptence argument, con should probably come up with more reasons.
