I would like to say that from reading various debates on religion on this website (this is my first actual debate) that if I were to be completely indifferent you could not prove either way how the earth was created. I welcome anyone (atheist, christian, muslim, jew, buddhist, hindu, etc.) to partake in this debate. By the way I am a Christian-Lutheran.

Alright, thank you for starting this debate. Seeing as you are the affirmative, the burden of proof lies on you. I await your arguments. Lets have a good debate!

Hmm, it appears my opponent has no argument. I will simply put forth the idea that we could not be here without God to create the universe. Until my opponent offers an alternative reason, the negative has won the debate.

Sorry I was having technical difficulties with the website and my computer. My argument wasn't that god created the universe it was simply that there is no proof to show either way how it was created.

"...we could not be here without God to create the universe."

Yes ... ok but whose God would that be? There are countless gods and countless ways in believing how the earth came to be (Think of almost every great civilization ever: Rome, China, Persia, Aztec, etc. they all have different gods). All I am trying to prove is that there is no evidence (really) to show either way. Like my opponent I would like to say something like this: "Yes God invented everything!" ...BUT... there is no true evidence besides thousands of people believing and the Bible. We cant just base things in belief without wondering why they happened or how they happened! Have you ever thought of any other religion, (or lack of it), has some good points... most do.

By the way I really hate to debate this side... any atheists, Jews, Muslims, etc. that want to debate this? Just kidding and I really wish you would've left me with more, but sorry for my missing the last round.
