There is a god because that is how we ended up on the earth if not then we would not be here and neither would the earth, Sometimes answers from god take time they do not happen as soon as you need them they just take time. Sometimes he wants you to figure out the answer for yourself. So yes there is a god

I can start quoting the bible. If you go into any church saying that there is no god they will freak out and kick you out. It is offensive to some people when you say that there is no god. So you may not beleive that there is no god but others do and you are being offensive to them

Let them be offended, You quote the bible, Can i quote goldie locks and the three bears because quoting a fairy tale is pretty pathetic, I want to offend them, They deserve to be offended for the crimes of their religions

he takes his time to see if you are able to see if you are able to find the answer by ourselves. He has erased our memory of before so we know how to choose on our own. If he did not erase our past in heaven then we wold never learn for ourselves what we need to do and what is wrong or right. He leaves it up to us to choice our own path.

"They deserve to be offended for the crimes of their religions"
Guilt by association?
I don't like Religion either but you I will not punish this generation for another generation's mistakes but you are okay with it.

Gods, As perfect beings, Need nothing. They have no deficits. Praying is pointless because God knows everything and if God is perfectly good and just, Then our prayers asking it to help others are pointless: God will help those that deserve it without or without our persuasive attempts. Praying is for ourselves and is essentially a self-help psychology disguised as religious behaviour. Also as God is everywhere it doesn't need us to go to specific places to do specific things: religious buildings are also purely a facet of human relations, Not divine requirement. Intelligent humans realized this long ago - Aristodemus and Socrates in 4 BCE discuss that the idea of the divine is "too exalted to need worship". The reason we do so are social. God can tell us anything we need to know, And if there are things we need to know, A perfectly good-god would tell us directly. Therefore evangelism is pointless, Merely a social exercise that feeds the ego of the evangelists. God doesn't need prophets such as Jesus, Muhammad, Or magical tricks such as the Resurrection, To tell the world what it wants the world to know. If it is good for us to know something, God would tell everyone instantly and clearly, Not via 3rd-party magical tricks and public relations stunts. God, As all-powerful and the facilitator of our personalities and consciousness, Does not need the operation of "souls" in order to preserve us after death. All these things can only be believed in by those who don't understand that Gods, If they exist, Are perfect beings. If you strip away all the nonsense from god-belief, The result is called deism, Which is the belief in God but without religion. Deism is the most sensible form of god-belief. Antisthenes, The founder of the Cynic tradition of classical Greece, Taught that we should reject all worship of the gods because as perfect beings they were in need of nothing. The idea of God is pretty much incompatible with all religious dogma and practice.

God has given us the agency to determine our own life. He will interfere as he sees fit, And, As everyone who lives righteously will live in glory for eternity, Our mortal life's trials are insignificant except in that they offer us chances to exercise our agency.

This debate isn't a good solid one on it's own anyway. I am surprised to see anyone agreeing to this debate. Anyway, Con, You are supposed to counter the pro's point on how god was right to leave human alone. (The answer lies in the Revelation. ) Pro on the other hand, Is another story. Failing to supply a good point and uses an argument based upon personal experience. Both side need better judgement and better arguments.

Reasons for voting decision: Con provided no evidence nor did Pro but at least Pro asks reasonable questions. Con is blinded by if the specific God he/she does follow. It would be capable of helping us yet does not. I also did not understand what Con typed in Round 3. Didn't like how Pro used guilt by association but Con's arguments were worse.
