Con

throughout history men made thousands of different gods, i would suggest the reason for that is that its a part of our human nature to want to know why is something (in this case the world) there and what is the meaning behind everything... and to the primitive men it would only make sense that someone much greater than himself made everything (of course this logic still doesn't make much sense), however today we know that everything has a natural explanation:

we are the result of millions of years of evolution, the ground we are standing on is a part of a huge planet we now days call earth, the sun is a massive ball of energy light years away from us, everything from the stars to ourselves we can explain... of course there are still a lot of unsolved mysteries but just because we dont know everything yet doesnt mean we wont know, and it also doesnt mean it was god... that fallacy is usually called the god of the gaps: https://en.wikipedia.org....

however ancient primitive childish ideas of long ago are still with us today, partially because it eases the pain of some of us, partially simply because of tradition and the indoctrination of children from an early age... one way or another there is no logical reason to believe in god, there is no evidence pointing towards god and i would even say there is practically no possibility for a god left.

want to try to prove me wrong?

@lionard_dubson
You are debating against the concept of God in general, with no side having provided any definitions. If you were up against the Christian God you could just point out the benevolence-omnipotence-omniscience paradox, but now you have to place the BoP on your opponent and justify it in order to win. But again, nothing to gain from such a debate.

well, that would only be so if god didnt ever influence the world or reveal himself in any way... the bible for example speaks of many ways the christian god influenced the world and there should be sufficent evidence from the real world to prove his existence if he really does exist

@KostasT.1526 You are absolutely correct. This debate is virtually unfair to Pro.

Such debates are pure nonsense. A triggered theist will accept, both sides will start throwing the burden of proof to each other, and it will continue like that until one of the two forfeits or the debate ends, with the Con winning the debate, as the voters will recognise that the BoP is actually on the theist. Absolutely nothing to gain.

I suggest not attempting to debate about this kind of thing. Usually, all of these debates do nothing. Literally, nothing to prove or disprove God's existence. This debate also hurts the first amendment of the United States, trying to disprove a religion. I believe God is not real, but I can't officially disprove it. If I was able to die and then a few years later come over and say that I didn't see hell, heaven, or God, or that I did, then there we go, it's proved and disproved. But it's never happened. Those stories about children or people seeing God then waking up is fabricated. I feel that the discussion of God's existence is simply opinion, not fact debate.
