Rose NoHoThe myth of atheist obligation:
Theists often act as if a person states they don't believe in god, they are obligated to come up with an alternate explanation for...well, everything.
But that's just not the case. Since there is no evidence for a god, there is no reason to even entertain the idea that there is one. Again, that doesn't obligate an atheist to come up with a counter to this god, to somehow explain how life, the universe and everything began.
People who claim there is a god should back up that claim with evidence. So, why don't they?
I tend to agree. Such persons are apatheists.
Similarly, atheists often act as if a person states they do believe in God, they are then obligated to come up with an explanation for...well, everything.(Note: A believer in God does not know everything, and because their God does know everything, does not mean that they know everything.)
