Atheism - Logic and Science 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 Theist: Please provide empirical evidence of the existence of any deity.
