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

Russell's Teapot. Ignorance is not an excuse for shifting the burden of evidence. Claiming ignorance is used as a gap in which to insert God, a God of the gaps argument. That is not a substitute for good evidence.

What can be asserted without evidence can be denied without evidence.

Thanks for all the responses. Predictably after being exposed making unsupported claims, crudely trying to reverse the burden of proof and making successive arguments from ignorance.............my opponent threw a tantrum and called me a Nazi.

Why are you debating a five year old anyway? Tongue

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

I know what you mean. This particular idiot butted in on a Twitter exchange I was having with someone else. The “someone else” made some fatuous comments and was easily seen off. The idiot was more trollish.
