As I said

I am curious as to what in general things you would accept as being evidence for God?

Personally I believe that Jesus is God. Now if you say not only do you not believe that, but dont even think that Jesus existed, I have two things to give evidence for. First that Jesus existed on earth and I will give a link to here http://www.probe.org/site/c.fdKEIMNsEoG/b.4223639/k.567/Anci... and second that Jesus is God.

The question of how do you prove Jesus is God is interesting becouse of some of the promises Jesus made. From the promise in John 14:6 where Jesus says he is the only way to heaven, one would ask what evidence do you have for heaven or hell and the answer to that is simply when you die you will have all the evidence you need.

To Jesus saying in Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
I can take you to men who were drug addicts who accepted Jesus as their savior who will attest Jesus gave them rest. I can take you to an ex hells angel who will tell you Jesus gave rest to his soul. I can show you nations who had peace brought to them by missionaries (particulary David livingstone http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddi... , and james chalmers http://www.amazon.com/Adventures-in-New-Guinea-ebook/dp/B008... )

Then there is the thing Jesus said about prayer Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mat 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
and you could ask many how true this is, and you would get many answers but you would only get one answer from a man named george mueller God answers prayers, just the way he said he did. http://www.amazon.com/Answers-Prayer-M%C3%BCllers-Narratives...

Now if you are asking God to show some special miricle for you to believe in him then Jesus has an answer for that too. Luk 16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
Luk 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
Luk 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
Luk 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
Luk 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
Luk 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
Luk 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
Luk 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
Luk 16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
Luk 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
Luk 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
Luk 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
Luk 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

As I said originally I would love to hear what kind of evidence you are looking for, but I suspect even if someone rose from the dead you would still not be persuaded.
