No , you haven't claimed how life or the Universe were created.<quoted text>Did I ever claim how the universe was created? Nope. Then by the standard you set for yourself, I need not give anything to you for my reasons, or evidence.
Atheism is not a belief in how the universe was created.
What you believe is, that God is not the creating agent,that there is no ID.
On the other hand , you are quite unable to explain how these events might have occured by natural means,therefore your refusal to address the issue by claiming that you do not have to do so. That is a lame excuse.
The answer to the problem ,is not that you don't have to do so, the answer is the fact that you are unable to do so.
There is a huge difference between not having to do something ,as opposed to the inability to do something....Let us not get the 2 confused
