fast forward through 1:50 of whining
Theological considerations aside, I want evidence that Christians are sentient. I am prepared for the possibility that the Bible is the Word O' God only for people who don't want it and should never have been put in the hands of those who do.
You can't prove that something we can't prove doesn't exist!
Sure we can't prove that God doesn't exist, but we can prove that a personal god doesn't exist.
You cannot prove that this man is not fat.

"And I got an answer like this... it was a blank stare". No, you got an answer like this... it was a person stunned that someone could use such a tired and ridiculous "argument"
I want to listen to his argument and deal with him with logic and rationality, but all I can think of when I look at him is "punch punch punch punch punch punch punch punch punch"
I also don't have evidence that he is not an amoeba that happens to look like a human wearing a striped shirt.

straw man logic 101
It wasn't a blank stare. It was a pause as they furiously googled Russel's Teapot to show what an ass you are.
"I'm the janitor at your daughter's school and I'll have her home by 3am; got a problem with that?"
I'm pretty sure that's a question atheists fear even more.
One needs only hold up a mirror.
If by "the number 1 question all atheists fear" you mean "the most obvious strawman argument theists have made for hundreds of years that has been soundly dealt with by hundreds of scholars and philosophers"
I can't help myself from getting anal on this one. Sorry tosjohnson301, but this is always the "question atheists fear," and I think there are at least ten other videos of idiots saying this exact thing already on here.
Three stars because he's a moron, of course, but I feel this is more boring than anything else by now.
Eh, I kind of agree. At least some people liked it. That 'how to make a lamp decoration' vid is pretty boss.
You may as well not even bother with people who think like this. There's nothing you can do.
I can't demonstrate a negative, moron.
Oops. Note to self: Read comments before adding your own.
What would possibly constitute 'positive evidence' that God doesn't exist?
All I can think of is the sorts of things along the lines of (if P then Q) and (not Q) therefore (not P) - e.g., the holocaust, James Randi. A lack of positive evidence for God in this case should demonstrate at least that their rather narrow notion of an 'activist' god is false. Of course one could make the 'mysterious ways' argument, but that's basically equivalent to saying that you can't tell the difference between a universe with god from a universe without god.
That's a real head-scratcher alright. I'll convert today!
I wonder what kind of hardcore "scientific evidence" and "statistical probabilities" this guy has to present with his "mountains and mountains of evidence"? Because the stories were written down a really long time ago they have to be true? Could the same "proof" also apply to Greek mythology, or Buddhism, or Islam, or any other fucking bunch of fables that have been passed down for generations?
