There are some things we cannot prove.
For example one cannot prove ones own existence – I could argue that you are a figment of my imagination, like a person in a dream. You would be unable to prove that you were a self aware, autonomous human being.
Using atheist logic I should therefore consider all other humans to not be self aware, sentient, concious beings as they cannot 'prove’ they have these qualities.
Would it not be better to accept that I can never know if other people are self aware like me? That I can never know if God exists?
