Yes, I've tried to make the argument using the Kalam Cosmological Argument.  

 If you were paying attention a few days ago, Xeno tried to prove in his 
argument that he had no beginning.   I then realized that this line of 
reasoning was absurd.   So, I bowed out from further discussion.

 It appears that Xeno believed his rationale was strong and logical.  But 
apparently you think that his position was absurd as well.

 That's exactly right.  

 Erm, that statement agrees with me. It's you who has to prove your god, you 
who has made the metaphysical assumption.

 Therefore, the atheist's position is very weak and absurd.  You can see this 
weakness when they try to make arguments against the Kalam Cosmological 
Argument.  IMO, their arguments become absurd and nonsensical.

 The KCA is a crock, how can there be an uncaused creator god when you've 
already decided the reason he has to exist is because things can't exist 
without a cause?

 It's almost impossible to prove a negative, even if your include in your 
argument the Law of the Excluded Middle. By the mere mention of a entity in 
their argument they have already postulated a metaphysical assumption. Without 
definitions, the argument is circular ending with a reductio ad absurdum. Any 
statement, when taken to extremes, will be found to be self-contradictory.
