  3. Yes, Jakub, but he believes that there was an actual flying horse, and stupidly asks “can you prove that wasn’t the case” (demanding proving a negative).

    The problem I have with people like Dawkins, that they willingly give an apologist what he wants to hear, by declaring “No, of course I can’t prove that it didn’t happen”.

    What’s that, you say? “Because I said so”, of course.

    If they disagree about it being sufficient, just have them provide proof for their version of their story. If they can’t (which they can’t), the THAT is your proof that you are 100% correct.

    Checkmate.
