God exists or does not exist. Whose job is it to prove it?

I already have my own opinion. But I'm curious and want to survey the rest of you.

It seems in debates about God or a god, some people hault the god debate to argue over whose burden it is to prove their position. So who do you think is right?

Should we have to prove that God does exist?

Should we have to prove that he does not exist?

Are there any third party answers?

Those who assert that God exists must prove or back up that statement.

In my experience, the "evidence" for god tends to be the following (but not limited to):

"Just look all around you, evidence is everywhere."

"I personally experienced him."

"You can't prove he doesn't exist!"

"So many people believe in him, there's just no way he's not real!"

"You really think somebody would just make it all up?"

God does exist. You don't need proof. He made earth, he made animals, people, everything. It has nothing to do with science. Look around you, it's obvious God does miraculous things every day. You just have to open your eyes.

Although technically it's no one's job to prove anything, if one side is trying to argue a point they have to back it up with evidence.

If one is saying that God does exist, it is the job of the people who are saying that to prove it to anyone that does not believe.

For example, I believe my imaginary friend Kevin exists. Yet I can not defend Kevin's existence if I have no proof.

Side: Those who believe in God

Well I believe that "God" is simply a group of extraterrestrials that have much more scientific knowledge about the universe amd its properties. I guess that may be third party but I also believe that somethings in the bible were just attempts to civilize humans. I do not think I am correct though. I just think it can explain both sides of the argument.

Side: Those who don't believe in God

This is actually far more likely to be true than most people realize, religious especially. Although, still fairly unlikely in my opinion.

Side: Those who believe in God

Thank you. I thought it would have its scientific backing while adding relogious content to it as well. It is unlikely or highly improbable though.

Science has nothing to do with whether God exists or not.

Side: Those who believe in God

If one is saying God does not exist, that person needs evidence. For example I say my friend Kevin exists. If I'm not forcing Kevin on you, and I'm keeping him mainly to myself, but you say that he does not exist, it's your job to prove it.

I don't think I'm explaining this well

Why do you post on both sides of the debate? Is it because you get more points?

You do get more points that way but I only do this when it's a split topic. See how the question asks for two different answers. I have two different answers requiring two different sides.
