Atheist's mantra "there's no proof for your God" is based upon a double catch 22.
Define out of existence any kind of evidence not in their favor by
reducing all valid truth claims to empirical scientific data.
is the only from of knowledge, any thing else claiming to be knowledge
is counterfeit. So reason, logic, experience, nothing else is evidence
but empirical data. (bracket the problem that personal experience is
closer to empirical data in the real sense than is scientific data).
(2) Impose a form of "Knowledge" not capable of apprehending God.
then they make a big deal out of "there's no proof for God."
like doing a poll that excludes Democrats then saying "our poll shows
no one is voting democrat." Cause you excluded them.
is how you prevent yourself from recognizing any evidence for God. You
refuse to accept anything as evidence except that which is not capable
of finding God because it's limited to the naturalistic domain.
is not capable of recognizing anything form beyond the material. So it
can't accept that god is working in the natural it has to abhor that
assumption because it's form outside the domain.
create this false construct the "fortress of facts" that's constructed
to screen out anything that would support belief in God. Then you claim
"there's no evidence." That' because you screen it out.
see this in the hermeneutics of miracle denial where the rejection of
the evidence is based upon the assumptino of past denial.
