I’m an atheist, But I get this question a lot from Christians, and it doesn’t seem that my answer satisfies them.
So let me ask it like a Christian.
If an atheist believes that there is nothing out there (Gods)
Then how do we have something out of nothing. Science has proven that something cannot come out of nothing.
My answer to this is, atheists don’t say that. I say that we simply don’t know the origin of the universe and the Christian doesn’t know either.
We’re both in the same boat with the same question, and if you think you know the origin of the universe the burden of proof is upon you to explain it.
