The agnostic & atheist mantra is "When something doesn't exist it's impossible to prove it doesn't exist". Can you prove this wrong?

In other words, if something (ANYTHING WHATSOEVER) does not exist, can you scientifically ***PROVE*** it does not exist?

If something (anything) CAN be proven to not exist, then let's make a list, and show that the atheist/agnostic mantra is utterly incorrect.

    WHY DO YOU LIE?!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Atheists have the education and intelligence to know the truth and live in reality! They know there is no god!

    Agnostics do not believe anything can be know about or proved about a god. Thus they can still believe a god exists. This description obviously fits a lot of Christians!

    The only people that claim you cannot prove a negative are weak faith uneducated Christians!!!!!

    So come on - The first person to produce a single tiny little piece of verifiable evidence for any god will become world famous and mega rich!

    Academia states that in the absence of any sort of evidence of the existence of something it must be deemed not to exist until verifiable evidence is found - thus god is held not to exist pending some sort of verifiable evidence.

    Then realise that further ridicule is shown by the fact that the bible is what is called "Faction” A fictional story set in a factual time and place. Thus the time, place and real historical characters are all correct but the fictional characters and stories are not!

    There is not one single mention of Jesus in the entire Roman record - that is right - not one! At the same time as he was supposed to have been around there were a number of Jews claiming to be the messiah - all of whom are well recorded!

    There is not a single contemporary record from any source and even the bible mentions of him like all other references were not written until many years after his supposed death!

    He was supposed to have been a huge problem to the Romans and produced wonderful miracles but still not one contemporary record?

    Even the bible mentions of him like all other references were not written until many years after his supposed death!

    Pilate is recorded in the Roman record as a somewhat lack luster man but no mention of a Jesus, a trial or crucifixion that would surely have been used to make him look brighter!

    At best he was an amalgam of those others but almost certainly never existed!

    Not one word of it is contemporary with the period and was not written until several hundred years after the period the story is set in!! How did the apostles write their books more than a hundred years after they would have been dead?

    Christianity is an invention of the Italians and that is why it came from the Holy ROMAN Catholic church!

    Please realize that those claims for the Old historians are worthless since they were not even born until long after everyone in the stories would have been so long dead!

    Josephus AD 37 – AD 100

    Tacitus AD 56 – AD 120

    Suetonius - 69 – 130 AD

    Pliny the Younger, 61 AD – 112 AD

    Justin Martyr (Saint Justin) AD103–165 AD

    Lucian - AD 120 -180 AD but he was hostile to Christianity and openly mocked it.

    Pamphilius AD 240-309 AD

    Eusebius AD 263 – 339 AD

    Photius AD 877 – 886 AD

    Thallus - But there are no actual record of him except a fragment of writing which mentions the sack of Troy [109 BC] Showing that he was clearly not alive in biblical times.

    Some even try to use Seneca. 4 BCE – 65 CE but as a Stoic Philosopher he opposed religion yet made not a single mention of a Jesus or Christianity!

    Even funnier is trying to claim Celsus AD ? – 177 AD Who said that Jesus was a Jew who’se mother was a poor Jewish girl whose husband, who was a carpenter, drove her away because of her adultery with a Roman soldier named Panthera. She gave birth to an illegitimate child named Jesus. In Egypt, Jesus became learned in sorcery and upon his return presented himself as a god.

    Research shows whilst education reduces religious belief each year of further education reduces religious belief by up to 10%!

    Ok, so of all of the "gods" mankind has and still worships your presenting that "all" not just one (your choice) can be validated in some way. What you don't seem to comprehend that if one can prove one god they can prove them all for they are all validated in the same assumptions, presentations and assertions.

    If there’s a condition that has to be true for the thing to exist, and that condition is false.

    We don't believe in gods.

    We make no claims.

    You are the one claiming we make claims.

    Get back under your bridge you ridiculous troll.

    That's a simplification. There are ways to prove the nonexistence of something. Most simply if it contradicts itself or if you can show some result that excludes its existence. That's called falsification.

    But not everything is falsifiable. Especially not things that have been refined and defined so as to, "not be tested"

    Here's a REALLY easy one: prove you don't own a Lamborghini.  Sounds like it should be simple, right?  But it turns out it's impossible.

    I don't say that. It must suck to be unable to produce this fancy god of yours.

    Correct. Proof requires evidence, and a non-existent entity cannot provide evidence of its non-existence.
