Good evening ladies and gentlemen.  It is gratifying to see so many Christian fundamentalists in the room, tonight.  Before I begin, I forgot that I left my elephant outside, and I wanted him to come inside.  Would someone in the back of the auditorium, go out and get him?  He is sitting in the back of my Corolla smoking a cigarette.  Uhhh, someone?  Please?  Is there anyone here who would be kind enough to go get my elephant?

What’s that?  What did you shout, sir?  You’re saying that there isn’t any elephant out there?  I’m sorry, sir, but there is.  What?  Sir, it makes sense to ME.   Oh yes, I know it’s hard for someone like you to believe, but it’s true.  I know it because I saw the elephant myself.  What?  You still don’t believe me?  You’re asking me to prove it?  Sir, I don’t need to prove anything, because I believe it, and that should be good enough for you.  Evidence, you ask?  Sir. I don’t need no stinkin’ evidence; I have something more powerful - FAITH!  You’re not going to tell me that my faith isn’t good enough if I don’t have scientific, empirical evidence or common sense to back it up, are you?  So what you’re telling me is that any claim that is extraordinary should have some kind of real evidence to back it up.  Okay, you're right.

Now, what is it you’d like to tell me about God?

Comical as that sounds, it's actually quite a good point to start a debate on, providing you can get a theist into the right position, then ask them why those exact words don't apply to their god.
