For the challenge this week, we’re going to look at a comment we received on YouTube:
Atheism is the lack of belief in god(s), it can’t be true or false. I lack belief in god(s), that is 100% true; I am an atheist: 100% true. I will never claim your god doesn’t exist, only that there is no evidence to support it. Man created god, not vice versa.
It’s a fairly common move for atheists to say they’re not making a positive claim, therefore they don’t have to offer reasons for their worldview or defend it. They say the burden is completely on theists to present enough proof for them to believe.
In a conversation with your atheist friend, where would you go from here? Brett will go over your answers and give his response later this week.
