If their was God and he created man in his image, every single man and woman on this earth would have some trait in common. Something that makes us who we are.

As your first premise.
Now, you don't provide a reason for us sharing a simple trait, you simply state that being created by a deity would mean that we share a single trait.
You then state that the trait is we all want to be loved, therefore we were created by a deity.
It's logically empty.

Except they're in a null position, neither can prove their argument, but there is a telling problem, that they could compromise and agree to disagree as neither of them can prove anything. But that's an entirely different position, as neither one of them is claiming 'if you don't believe he was red you will burn in a lake of fire for all eternity' or such nonsense.

I'd advise you to read the book Genesis if you want proof for God, further I can advise you to just look around.
And to feel your body.
Thinking is also proof of God.
Knowing answers on questions proves God existence as your creator and creator of all things.
Nations on this disc named earth are proof of a creator, God Jehovah
Atheism/satanism is of proof that God exists.
Man goes to police station to make note he was robbed by another, seeks justice. Justice is from the Lord.
Men seek knowledge and wisdom. Wisdom comes from the Lord. The opportunity gaining knowledge found in the world God created is proof of existence of God.
and then you have THE MIGHT OF PRAYER
this is proof.
Men who deny God will never allow proof of Him to be existent.
God is most often conceived of as the supernatural creator and overseer of the universe. Theologians have ascribed a variety of attributes to the many different conceptions of God. The most common among these include omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), omnibenevolence (perfect goodness), divine simplicity, and eternal and necessary existence.
One of the most agreed on predictions for the future was by astronomer Nikolai Kardashev. He felt that our civilization might progress through four different stages, and that other alien civilizations might be categorized as being in one of those four distinct stages.
