1. Explain what he is and provide evidence.
2. Explain how he got here and provide evidence.

That's metaphysics and epistemology, so far ,so good.
How can I, you or anyone give you that? If we're talking about something which one can define and has a definite shape then I would be able to give you evidence.

But since God is a higher being and he doesn't have substance, then how does one go about that? In order to give evidence of something, you need an instrument, you need to conduct an experiment. At least in science.

Now I want someone to come up with an experiment or an instrument that could prove the existence of something abstract, higher than us, indefinite, omnipotent etc, etc.

And have you ever heard of Aristotle's view on God? There's your metaphysics if you want.

They may not be in congruence with each other but they all have something in common: they believe in HIGHER BEING/BEINGS. They vary when it comes to the properties they give to God, but not when it comes to the existence of God.

It doesn't mean that because different religions have different perspectives on God, then that means HE doesn't exist. Human beings have different opinions. You cannot dismiss something just because people disagree on it.

If unicorns were higher than us then they would be either spirits or God. And fairies and unicorns are not indefinite like 'the man in the sky'.
