    vs i dunno? Where are the facts?

    Theists do not get this. Atheists are not saying we know you are wrong. You are though very consistent about not backing up your claims.

    Some atheists believe that god or gods do not exist. "Implicit atheism and explicit atheism are types of atheism. Implicit atheism is defined as 'the absence of theistic belief without a conscious rejection of it', while explicit atheism is 'the absence of theistic belief due to a conscious rejection of it'." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Implicit_and_explicit_atheism

    What would you accept? It doesn't matter what I tell you, show you, draw you a picture, or
    whatever. I could convince 9/10 but that 10th can say no matter what, I don't believe you.

    So proclaiming we cannot prove our stance is just smoke.

    The fact that you are a dodger and deflector about your own beliefs makes you a poor ambassador for your religion and makes the things you assert about reality sound terribly feeble and fragile.

    I'm not a dodger or deflector when it comes to my beliefs, I just choose to discuss beliefs
    with people who also will answer questions put to them too. I've answered several of
    yours and I am looking for just one from you, but you dodge and deflect answering it. With
    respect to how you find my assertions is just another personal insult, I have become
    accustom from getting those from you, I'd be shocked to see a respectful conversation.

    I suggested that there is implicit atheism and explicit atheism. That's two. Seventy what?

    I am perfectly willing to answer questions about what I believe. Stop running away from our conversations.

    An "absence of theistic belief", I'd say.

    That could be an interesting question but you ruined it. You have no evidence, grow a pair and admit it. They call your belief 'faith belief' for a solid reason.

    Yes sir. I'm also an a-unicornist and a-leprechauns and a-aliens. Though primitive people could get confused by rhino skeletons and leprechauns have morphed into little green aliens apparently. Me, I believe there are aliens but no one has shown that we've met them yet.

    Gotta have standards.
