They say that, in order to understand both sides of an issue, you must know enough that you could argue for the other side. It's a common practice in speech/debate classes. So this question is for atheists; can you make a convincing argument that god exists, even though you don't believe it yourself?

And bone cancer in children, and the ebola virus, and well, just "everything", right?
I wonder why it matters so much that people obsess over HOW and WHY the universe exists. It obviously DOES exist. Why not live in harmony with the universe?
I guess people are not obsessed with how the universe existed. But how when or if it will end? people are looking for answers because they fear death. We want to make sure where are we going.
Soraya - there are no guarantees in life. Mankind has no power over the beginning or end of life. And very little control over the present. We are born, we live, then we die. It's the circle of life.
Keep in mind that we're the ones who have defined intelligence, which doesn't exist without our involvement.
Also keep in mind that "God" failed as a "super-intelligent designer". And no, there is no such thing as an "uncaused cause". A god did not create itself out of nothing and then create everything else.
you aren't in keeping with the intended spirit of the thread. you're supposed to be an atheist arguing FOR god.
LOL! You are correct. I just can't psyche myself up to "believe" or present a case for "belief" in a god or gods. Once one recognizes the invisibility of these "supreme beings", it's just too funny.
It's true that some atheists only believe in the natural universe, but that is not true of ALL atheists. The only thing ALL atheists have in common is that they don't believe in a god or gods. But should some type of verifiable truth comes along...
