Heck I couldn't define little green men but I wouldn't say they don't exist because I can't define them.<quoted text>
Yep. People compartmentalize all the time.
Argument from authority. Not a single one of them is an expert in the field of proving God exists. What they say about God is just as valid as what anybody else says about God, because THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF GOD'S EXISTENCE. Until you can define God and then demonstrate God's existence, there's nothing you've really got to say that means anything about God.
Like I said, it's irrational to accept a claim as true without any evidence to corroborate it.
Obviously you mean you see no evidence. Reminds me of SCOTUS decisions. The majority believes the constitution says this, the minority believes the exact same wording says that.
Matter of fact, Richard Dawkins is certainly no expert in the field of theology either. There are errors in his book,The God Delusion, which we can attribute to shoddy research. Of course there are also a few passages that apparently were written simply to mislead.
I also agree that claiming God doesn't exist as the original poster wrote is irrational. If he had written in his opinion,that blah ,blah,blah,he sees no evidence for God's existence that isn't a problem. Saying God doesn't exist is a statement of fact which demands proof.
To sustain the belief that there is no God, atheism has to demonstrate infinite knowledge, which is tantamount to saying, "I have infinite knowledge that there is no being in existence with infinite knowledge"
