I am of the position that the Christian God does not exist. This will be a discussion dealing with only the Christian God, not Allah, or any other. I will gladly accept any challengers and look forward to a good debate.

Where's your proof that god doesn't exist? Theres plenty of evidence supporting the existence of god.For example, the earth in orbiting the sun departs from a straight line by only one-ninth of an inch every 18 miles"a very straight line in human terms. If the orbit changed by one-tenth of an inch every 18 miles, it would be vastly larger and we would all freeze to death. If it changed by one-eighth of an inch, we would be incinerated. The sun is burning at approximately 20 million degrees Celsius at its interior. If the earth was moved 10% farther away, we would soon freeze to death. If it was moved 10% closer, we would be reduced to ashes. Are we to believe that such precision "just happened"? Think about it: the sun is poised at 93 million miles from Earth, which happens to be just right. Did this happen by chance or by design? It"s no small wonder that the psalmist alludes to God as the grand designer: "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. . . . [The sun] rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other" (Psalm 19:1, 6).

My proof, or evidence, of the non-existence of God is completely overwhelming and I will choose to save the rest for the following arguments. I will, however, respond to the questions that you asked.
The conditions here one Earth truly are extraordinary, it is amazing that we find the conditions that we do. However, this does not point to God. What would be truly extraordinary is if life arose in a place where it SHOULDN'T. The universe is a very big and very old place, so improbable things happen all the time.
If it is the case, which it is not, that we are here by intelligent design, it still doesn't prove that it was the Christian god. Why was it not Allah, or Zeus, or Ra?

On the case of improbable things happening, what or who is the cause of them? And on the last statement, for all we know god could be Allah, Jehovah, and Brahma all rolled in one, i think that different religions just have different views of the SAME god.

This is what I would answer to RedWhiteBlueBlooded about what he wrote in the last round.

About the "what or who is the cause of them?"
The answer is simple.
I don't know. Does he? He says its God? Then he has to prove it.

And about that every religion has different versions of the same god, that's just ridiculous. Every god is different and has revealed different moral codes. Claiming they are all the same is a contradiction.
