Good image/meme for "argument from ignorance"
I've been having an exchange with a theist for a number of days and he keeps going back to the old argument from ignorance.

He's come up with all sorts of things - a bit of a Bill O'Reilly "tides-come-in-tides-go-out-therefore-god" and its becoming tedious.

Can anyone provide a good meme or similar? It might just shut him down.

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike

Mr Deity summed it up as:

We don't know, therefor we do know?

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

I made a video all about it, if that's any good?

Ad hominium? Consider

Dig up Neil deGrasse Tyson's UFO video. The one that starts out with some guy asking if he believes in UFOs. He explains it marvelously.

Memes are great for people who agree with them. They do pretty much nothing to convince people who don't agree with you. It's almost like the medium itself lends itself to easy dismissal.

"Oh, you used a meme? You must not have a real point." *doesn't actually pay attention to the substance of the meme*
