Why Prove That God Does Not Exist?
When a Christian antagonist pokes with the taunt “You can’t prove god doesn’t exist” I will now reply with this line of reasoning:
I don’t have to prove that the god of Abraham does not exist. You have to prove that Vishnu does not exist. Not for me, but to justify your belief in YHWH. If you cannot prove that Vishnu does not exist yet insist that he does not, why would I need to prove your god does not exist? Christians will heartily believe that gods other than YHWH do not exist without proof. I need not provide proof to be satisfied that YHWH does not exist. Whatever evidence offered as to why Vishnu does not exist will work for why YHWH does not exist.
A rose by any other name smells just as beautiful. A god by any other name would be just as miraculous.
The theist cannot prove their god exists. Moreover, it is not the atheist they have to convince. It is the theist of another religion that they must convince. To do this they must prove someone else’ god does not exist.
As a bonus, I got to watch three people as their brain rebooted while trying to contemplate the question. Priceless!
