When was the last time you encountered a theist or a Christian who readily admitted that the burden is on them to support their claim that some god exists and not on any atheists who merely don't accept that claim? I can't say that I ever have, though I'd like to think that such theists and Christians exist somewhere. Instead, all I ever seem to encounter are theists who are convinced that the burden lies on others to disprove the theistic position.
I hear so much talk about how Christians have to prove that God exists, yet there is no reason for Christians to prove that, since they go by faith. I think would be interesting to change the rules and to put a new game on the table: Rather then assuming there is no God because you have disregarded religion, I would like someone to scientifically disprove God, especially since most Atheists believe they are so intellectual with science.
Funny though, how most theories they abide by are not considered true science, but ONLY theory. Stop claiming that Christians have to prove it, how about the Atheists disprove it?
I wish I had a nickel for every time a Christian or other sort of theist came along and insisted that I prove their god didn't exist... as if it were up to me to disprove every random god-claim that is brought up by every random internet poster. When will they figure it out that the obligation is theirs to prove their god does exist -- or at least start out by defining their "god" so that there is something substantive to talk about.
If you admit that you have no proof or support for your claim because your position is based on nothing but "faith," then you are admitting that your position isn't rational or sensible. At that point, what reason is there to take you or your beliefs seriously? Why not regard you as hopelessly delusional?
