This thread will be about facts and proof about how or why certain God(s) are real, and what you believe.
I for one, am a Catholic, and this thread will be MUCH different than this.
I am much more understanding and mature, and have new ideas and thoughts about what I believe.

Very well then, considering I have no belief in gods would you please present evidence that your god is real?

I don't see why we can't have said discussion in the Theism vs Atheism thread.

I am much more understanding and mature, and have new ideas and thoughts about what I believe.

It would help if you provided us with what those were.

Before the ball gets rolling, I would like to go over what evidence is and is not.

Evidence is:

"The available body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid"

Oxford Dictionary

This means a physical or logical proof. Things which strengthen evidence are the ability to replicate results and the objective viewing of said evidences indicates the proposed explanation.

Evidence is not:

-Stories of personal feelings.
-Stories of getting over a sickness.
-Disproving the other side.
-Belief.
-An assertion without backing.
-Self supporting (The bible is true because it says it is, for example).
