I can handle it just fine, thanks.**** empathy. You’re the only millennial pussy here who can’t handle this.
What you’re requesting is evidence of something that is by definition outside the realm of normal observation and evidence. But for absence of the divine, it’s around us every day. Maybe my lack of empathy is part of it. Regardless, it is not my burden; it is yours.
What I am being asked for, most often by you, is for evidence of something that, as you just said, exists "outside the realm of normal observation and evidence." So why do you bother to ask for any (even though there is plenty, believe it or not)?
Lack of empathy is absolutely a part of it. You cannot put yourself in the shoes of a believer. You cannot understand why believers do or choose to believe what they do. So lacking that understanding you criticize and dismiss out of hand. It is possible to empathize without agreeing.
Regardless, you make the charge that God does not exist. You did it in the second post of this thread. That is your burden, lawyer, to prove your claim or at least to provide evidence of it. Just as easily as you say "For absence of the divine, it's [evidence] around us every day," I could say the same in the other direction. So that does not work.
