sorry..your argument is flawed in at least six ways.


1) You never have to disprove a negative. It is up to the person 'claiming' something to prove it, not to someone who does not accept your hypothesis to 'disprove it'. Major fail on your part.


Sorry, but I just can't leave this argument alone- perhaps it is a personal weakness of mine-

What is wrong with your ability to discern the meaning of a written statement? Did I say that you have to prove that there is no god? I merely said that it couldn't be proven that there is no god. You claim that my argument is flawed and then proceed to show that the onus in on those who claim that there is a god to prove that existence and not on you to prove otherwise.

I agree and nothing I said proves otherwise.

Now-- did you argue against a perceived threat to your worldview? as opposed to arguing against an actual threat? or what?
