I don't "know" there is a God, I say it's likely that there's a God. There are historical facts for the resurrection of Jesus.

Here is the argument for The resurrection of Jesus: If Jesus really did rise from the dead, we would have a supernatural occurrence, therefore, evidence for the existence of God. Now, you might say that the resurrection is just something you believe in, by faith. But there are some fact which I believe to be best explained by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Fact number one, Jesus" tomb was discovered empty by a group of his women followers. Now, attempts by atheists to explain this fact have included the following: someone stole the body, or they went to the wrong tomb. The Jews and Romans had no motives to steal the body. Jews do not believe in a savior. So why would they steal Jesus" body to prove something they don"t believe in? Most Romans were pagans, so they also did not believe in Christian salvation. The group of women who went to the tomb watched Jesus be put into the tomb, so they knew exactly where it was. It seems unlikely that they would forget after just three days. Another fact is that women had no rights back then. If someone wanted to make a story up like this, they would have put it so that a man (such as John, or Paul) found the body. Another fact is that people saw images of Jesus after his crucifixion. Not just Jews and Pagans, but also enemies of Christ. Why would an enemy of Christ tell stories of how they saw images of Jesus if they didn"t believe he was divine? Thus, this follows that Jesus rose from the dead, and Christianity is true.

My question was not offensive, it was meant to envoke, I do realize that the question is not worded in a polite manner, but overall, it is a question, would you care to debate?

You must be new here. "I want to know why you waste your time pursuing a deity."
That sentence has at least two fallacies in it by itself. It's a loaded question and a poisoned well. You can't expect to have a decent debate when your resolution is not only fallacious but also provoking. Nobody wants to argue with someone who appears hateful. You need to calm your tone.
