In this debate, I will let my opponent go first. There will be 3 rounds to argue, and one final statement round. I ail be trying to prove that God is real, and my opponent will try to disprove the existence of a God.

I'm to lazy to type out a long argument due to all the FFS. I am just going to take conduct and provide a basic argument that will go non refuted

My adversary has the BOP to show that God is real because he is Pro.

There is no evidence to support the fact God is real. God is intangible as far as we are aware, and mostly considered a concept. There has never been no evidence to directly show there is a God, but rather circumstantial evidence that give us reason to think there could be a God. Offering up the conclusion there could be a God does not fulfill his Bop. It was on him to show there is a God without questions

C1) No need for a God

There is no need for a God with the advancement in science. We know how we exist, why we exist, and even how we got here. This is an appeal to Occams razor, but without the need for a God or evidence to support it, there is no logical or rational reasons to conclude there is a God.

Neither is there proof that there isn't a God and if an individual believes in God and there is no God what has that individual lost? On the the other hand if individual disbelieves and there is a God then that individual loses everything.

Sagey, probably because of Con's monster elo and impressive win/loss ratio; Mikal has the highest elo on this site, being the only one whose elo surpasses 8,000.

Looks like Con scared Pro into submission by simply accepting, Such is Con's debating skills. LOL!

Wish I could make my opponents disappear by simply accepting their challenges.

Reasons for voting decision: Real not defined, therefore I cannot agree with either (still an atheist). No arguments posted until final round, but conduct clearly favors con as pro dropped out. S&G tied as neither did anything to greatly distract from their case.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made no argument, Con had no opposition. Con also scores a conduct point for not forfeiting. Maybe Pro became ill but for whatever reason the debate is Con's just for hanging in there. Maybe there should be a way for somebody to signify that they cannot continue or are no longer on DDO to kill the wait time for the end of the debate and thus go straight to voting, so those remaining don't have to wait days to get to voting.
