(Note: The existence of a deity is fundamental to a belief in New World Creationism. This post is for New World Creationists, only!) (A Note for Theistic Evolutionists: I do not engage in debating Theistic Evolutionists about the existence of any deity, unless an invitation is extended. Below are a few reasons why I choose not to do this: I’ve no beef with Theistic Evolutionists. Theistic Evolutionists are not religious extremists. In general, Theistic Evolutionists are not known to me as typically being social or political fanatics, they do not seek to ban Evolution, nor Science either. I DO debate Theistic Evolutionists, where their social and political view differ from my own. For these and additional reasons, this post is not targetted for a debate with Theistic Evolutionists. Accept this “Note” as true, “on faith”, from an Athiest.) ---------------------------------------------------------- It is illogical to conclude that Atheism existed prior to Theism. For that reason, two “conditions” apply to the Theist. 1) The Theist asserted the existence of "god(s)". 2) The Theist’s assertion was made prior to the existence of Atheism. Logically, these conditions designate the BURDEN OF PROOF to the Theist. For that reason, it is not the responsibility of the Atheist to disprove the Theist’s assertion. The Theist can not provide any empirical evidence to scientifically prove the existence of “god(s)”. For that reason, the result of the “Scientific Method” is the conclusion that the Theist’s assertion is baseless and false. The Universe or life itself is not empirical evidence from which the existence of "god(s)" can be concluded, as these are only evidence of a tangible reality. What I know exists, does not lead me to conclude what does not exist, does exist. To the Creationist: Please provide empirical evidence of the existence of any deity (upon which creationism depends).
