I challenge anyone in a debate over the existence of god(s): There is absolutely no proof to support the existence of any god. Hope to have a good debate :)

"can you tell me how you got put on earth,,,, in fact how did anybody get on earth???"
No, I cannot. Religion can attempt to answer this large question, but with no evidence to support it's claims, then there is no reason to accept the church's idea that a supernatural and perfect being placed us here. If this was so, then there would be no evidence of mankind's evolution, which there is plenty (I have found Wikipedia to have a large amount of information on the subject: http://en.wikipedia.org...). Also, the fact that we are here doesn't prove that there is a god, it simply proves that we exist due to the fact that the earth is in an optimal area of the universe, ie- we are here because life can grow and evolve here. It is true that if the Earth were in a different location, it would not be able to support life. In conclusion, our existence proves that we live on a planet that can sustain life, not that we live on a planet the was created by a divine being.

Also, I feel obliged to ask you a few questions.
1) If a supreme being created us, what was the origin of said being? His existence would have to be due to the existence of an even more complex being that would of created him.
2) If a supreme being exists then why is there pain and suffering in the world? I understand the fact that humans have free will, but what about when bad and uncontrollable things happen to good, religious people? (ANY Natural Disaster, Being Born into Poverty, Being Born into Starvation, Holocaust etc.)
3) If God is truly all-powerful, then why is there statistically no difference in what happens when you pray to him? (http://www.nytimes.com...)

I await your response with much anticipation :)

Apparently, the existence of God is so vast that my opponent cannot put it into words...
