We all know that when it comes down to it, the "Does God Exist" debate is very one-sided in that atheists have abundant evidence, reason and logic in their favour yet, theists have, well, Let's face it, nothing at all to defend their unusual, contrived belief.
But wait! Shouldn't evidence be used to determine the right answer, whichever way it goes?
A court of law, for example, must use and evaluate all the evidence available to determine a case.
It would be unthinkable for a judge to say, "Well, we have all the evidence for the prosecution but the defence doesn't have any yet. When the defence does come up with evidence I shall duly make my finding".
How long are we going to wait for the theist side of the argument to come up with evidence? Another 1700 years?
Or, Can we make a judgement now on the available evidence that we do have?
