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.

Your logical fallacy is Burden of Proof.

When they ask "Your evidence is?"

You could simply retort with "Exactly my point!"

I don't see why we wouldn't be allowed to curse. If a forum was that tightly monitored, then I'd suggest that the users are too up tight and their sensitivities are probably a tad to high to have a good conversation with them.

CARM, huh?

*pops over to the CARM boards*

That looks like an excellent place to troll have a discussion about religion.

I'm having trouble even imagining what it would be like to live in that kind of hyper-sensitive fantasy world Blink

Quote:It seems likely that if xnity was very popular in USA the computer program that company uses would not even generate numbers with 666 in them. This would need some extra coding but I did my career as a programmer and can confidently state this effort is very minor compared to scope of that kind of software. But looking back at my career I could not imagine suggesting this kind of feature, documenting it in the specs, discussing with design group except maybe at an already religious company.
God damn, this person has really put a lot of thought into this. Laugh out loadLaugh out loadLaugh out load

It's a goddam privilege, not a fucking right. Or maybe it's the other way. Blink

Thanks for that.

No problem. Ultimately, you will/should realize that engaging in a debate with a religious person is a fruitless enterprise.
