This, in a nutshell, is the difference between atheists and theists, and the strengths of their positions. I have read lots of Christian apologetics books. I have watched numerous atheist/theist debates as well as creation/evolution debates. I have read several of the New Atheist books etc etc. One thing that is a very very common thread with the atheists: they almost to a person, say, "I will change my mind if the evidence is strong enough. I rarely hear theists say that.

-------------------


To be fair to the theists, you can't expect them to say that because there will never be any evidence for the non-existence of something. This is why the proof that there is a god is theirs to come up with. This is why the Atheist can justly ask for proof when someone claims the existence of a god, but the believer has no logical ground upon which to stand if he asks the Atheist to prove there is not one. The burden of proof lies with the person making the claim FOR the god, not the person who denies its existence.
