I am a little frustrated by the amount of people that don't seem to understand that not believing in something is not a belief (sounds straight forward, right?). God of the Gaps, and argument from ignorance, have to be two of the most annoying fallacies there are. I am genuinely shocked at the amount of people (in my experience) that try to pass the burden of proof onto someone who doesn't believe. They can't seem to comprehend that: 1) Science isn't out to prove, or disprove god 2) Science not having an answer, does not validate the answer they think they have 3) Thinking that "believing" in evidence, is the same as believing in God/spirituality What is their thought process? "Either God exists, or he does not exist. Science can't prove God doesn't exist, therefore God exists?" Or is it something like: "Either God exist, or he does not exist. Therefore it is a 50/50 chance that he does exist." I am not trying to straw-man anyone's arguments here, I legitimately want to know HOW they come to those conclusions, and what their reasoning is for denying Science. AGH. Does anyone have tips on how to deal with this? What are your thoughts?
