And you claimed I did not understand that a negative statement could be proved correct when I did so I was just defending myself.

But you agree with the statement. So that's why I made that assumption.

well, the argument just has to be framed to one of likelihood/probability rather than definitives.
"Lol I think it is you who does not understand."
if you read my first comment I fully limit my argument to one of probability. I'm not the author of the claim just the first argument, so please don't conflate my argument with the original claim.

Lol that's my point. You just stated a negative statement without proof haha. People have no evidence there are gods and you have no proof that there are no gods. Lol I think it is you who does not understand.

Prove a negative???? That makes absolutely no sense.

you can't prove a negative. If you don't believe this basic tenant of logic, please prove that there are no Unicorns, that there is no Thor, Mars, or Zeus etc.... Logically the best you can do is state that the likelihood of any of these things existing is very low due to a lack of evidence for their existence and due to the presence of more plausible alternatives. In the case of Thor for example; while there is no proof that the god of thunder doesn't exist, the fact that we know how thunder can occur in the absence of divine influence, it is much more likely that Thor isn't the cause of thunder and that he is likely not to exist at all. The same goes for the Christian God, the Jewish God, the Muslim God, etc...

You have proof to back up that negative statement?

There seems to be no real evidence for God and thus it is unlikely that there is one.
