Why are atheists expected to prove they don't think Gods are real?


There seems to be this idea that atheists have to prove that God isn't real in some concrete way using empirical evidence in order to not think God is real. I just take a believer's word that he or she honestly thinks God is real without asking them to prove God is real in some concrete way. Do believers carefully investigate all the Gods and Goddesses they don't believe in and prove in a concrete way that they don't exist before deciding they don't think those deities exist? If not, why is it seen as necessary for atheists to do so to be allowed to have an absence of belief?
