    Who are you ShockofGod? The question itself is nonsensical. People who DON'T believe in something have nothing to prove. Those who make a POSITIVE claim hold the burden of proof. Are you going to ask people who don't believe in Santa, Martians and Bigfoot to prove they don't exist before disbelieving?

    You should consider looking through the questions before asking one that has already been asked maybe hundreds of times.

    Just my opinion

    Answered beautifully at the top. One who does not believe something does not have to prove it because he's not making an argument.

    it's not a matter of proof. it's common sense. look at the world and all it's problems. tsnamis, earthquakes etc., then look at humans and animals and the way they have changed over the last 20,000 years and evolution is the only explanation. if god is real , then he must be asleep.

    Unable to prove a negative?

    According to http://www.graveyardofthegods.net/artic … ative.html

    "Of course it is not possible to prove that God does not exist, if “God” is a thing that has no definition, no characteristics, and no location."

    Now - if you said that God is a Dr. Suess cartoon that eats green cheese and ham and that the Earth is a big God turd - now we can argue!

    Agnostic versus atheist.

    Just becuase I admit I have no idea about the nature of God - doesn't mean I don't believe.

    From http://wiki.ironchariots.org/index.php? … ._agnostic -

    "  1. God exists.
       2. God does not exist.

    There are two positions one can take with respect to either claim:

       1. Belief or acceptance
       2. Disbelief or rejection

    For claim number 2 (the god does not exist), the theist takes the second position (disbelief), while the atheist can hold either position (belief or disbelief).

    While logic dictates that exactly one of the two claims above must be true (assuming the concept of "god" is sufficiently well-defined in the first place), there is no such restriction in the case of belief. Just because someone doesn't believe something, that doesn't mean they believe the opposite."

    Perhaps a question of strong atheism.versus weak atheism might be what you are looking for instead.
