Help on a logical fallacy.
There is a particularly obnoxious christian poster on another board who delights in curt or one word responses.
The one he uses most often is "Your evidence is?". This is usually in reply to a statement like "there is no evidence for god" or some other contingency for which there is simply no evidence.
I have tried for weeks to track down which fallacy this is but it has eluded me.
It is obviously idiotic and based on burden shifting but I would like to know the exact fallacy this is.
Appreciate any help.

Floggings to continue until morale improves.

The one who must provide the evidence is the one who makes the positive claim.

Maybe I'm looking for more intelligent debate than the likes of Q, Tommy and Blowjob can provide?
