A couple of suggestions:
'_________ provides the best argument to issues surrounding the existence of God'. Here you can replace with whichever philosopher you like. This would be good as there would be focus on one but great scope as you can bring in many different ones to say it is or is not the best. I would say fill the '_____' with David Hume, Thomas Aquinas or Richard Dawkins, although of course if there is someone you prefer that would be fine (Paley, Freud, Kant, Russell etc... would all work).
Use a quote from a philosopher and then do a critical assessment; for example...
"The whole thing is so patently infantile, so foreign to reality, that to anyone with a friendly attitude to humanity it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise above this view of life." To what extent can Freud's view of religion and God be said accurate?
"Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.". To what extent is Dawkins right in suggesting that it is a 'cop-out' to believe in God?
"“Atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning...”. To what extent is C.S Lewis correct in suggesting that atheism is weaker than theism?
You could do a critical comparison style question. For example:
'Freud succeeds where Kant fails, God is nothing more than a delusion'. To what extent is this statement correct
'To what extent is it accurate to say that Hume's argument against God defeats those proposed by Thomas Aquinas?'
Finally... you could take a different approach examining perhaps a theme, for example....
'Aristotle was correct in suggesting that God was the Prime Mover, there was never any need for God'
'Modern society requires atheism, we now realize it stands stronger than theism'
I hope this helps, please feel free to ask any more questions if required
