How can it be the case that there is no evidence for the existence of God or gods when atheists often appeal to polytheistic gods to resist apologetic arguments?
If your counter to “God caused the universe” is “What about the Greek Pantheon, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster?”, that’s not saying that the universe isn’t evidence for a deity. That’s saying it doesn’t tell you which deity. It can still be evidence for a deity.
It’s like, you can have evidence that a thief stole something, without it also telling you who the thief is.
There is evidence. God is a spirit, so the evidence is spiritual. I asked Gpd to be born again and His Holy Spirit indwelled me. His amazing love enveloped me and I knew He loved me and had always known me. That was many decades ago. I have doubted many things in my life but I have never doubted that God is with me since then. My spiritual eyes were opened.
Go to God with your question. Ask Him if He is real. He wants a relationship with you.
I absolutely agree OP. This is just a common debate tactic where people move the goalposts to suit their agenda. Whenever it comes to that, I just stop debating because it's futile at that point.
The polytheist gods are the true ones, and atheists are accidentally correct.
