No? Then how 'bout if I hit you under the chin and knock you out of your shoes? Or out of your wife's shoes, depending on which night it is.

Let me know.
Knock yourself out.

You're making the positive claim. The burden of proof is on you.

Your attempt to equate positive belief with non-belief as if they are equal is totally dishonest and nobody's buying it.

Wrong. Both sides make a positive claim.

The atheist claim is that no god exists. The claim that atheism is simply a non-belief is false, and is an attempt to dilute the meaning of "atheism" by blending it with agnosticism. It's a lie, in other words.

Same burden of proof.

Agnosticism covers a different topic altogether. You use crappy definitions and then complain about atheists "diluting" meanings when we refine the definitions to make them more clear and applicable to the stances people actually hold.

It's more than just lack of oxygen, it's vacuum, minus 270 in the shade,+250 degrees in the sun and all sorts of radiation.
