QUESTION MARKChristians are Vishnu-atheists,

Muslims and Jews are Jesus-atheists.

I am a Thor-atheist, and so on.

Western society has rejected the gods of the Romans and Greeks that we openly call them myths.  If we were to call Jesus a myth in America today, there would be a great cacophony of voices denouncing our position; nevertheless, each person has rejected more religious beliefs than they accept.

The anti-atheists make the claim that it is a long step from making existence claims about one thing to a general denial of the existence of all possible deities. It is true that there is never evidence against the existence of god(s), for evidence never exists in favor of nothing, but rather evidence can only exist “in favor of” something.

It is more appropriate that lack of evidence for God or gods denotes agnosticism, or the lack of knowledge about god in particular
