As my opponent stated in the comment section "Extraordinary claims need extraordinary evidence", I would like to say that both proving and disproving G-d are impossible. You cannot prove G-d, you cannot disprove G-d either. Because neither of them need to be proven and people are free to believe in G-d/a god/gods, to believe there is no gods or not to be sure if there is a god; there is then no burden of proof required.

Nobody has to prove the existence of G-d, nor disprove it. People have the freedom (at least where I come from) to worship whatever god he wants or to live as an atheist/agnostic.

Ok, Everybody can believe G-d or disbelieve Him. G-d does not force it on anybody. The non-existent god either does not force it on anybody :)

The burden of proof lies on the one making the claim. Having it fall on the believer sounds good for a bit, but it's not perfect. I could claim that gravity doesn't exist, and since the burden of proof lies on the believer, I don't have to prove it, but you do.

How could it be any other way ?.

The debate will focused on the argument in a debate that any believer should carry the burden of proof during and a debate. Extraordinary claims need extraordinary evidence. Of course not all people believe this and some believe the skeptic should have to disprove a claim that is made. Fortunately, I can prove my point and it is something that can be debated as people often disagree on who holds the burden of proof in religious arguments.

You can't prove that, nor can you prove your point either...
