Richard, 

 That's exactly right.  Therefore, the atheist's position is very weak and 
absurd.  You can see this weakness when they try to make arguments against the 
Kalam Cosmological Argument.  IMO, their arguments become absurd and 
nonsensical.

 It's almost impossible to prove a negative, even if your include in your 
argument the Law of the Excluded Middle. By the mere mention of a entity in 
their argument they have already postulated a metaphysical assumption. Without 
definitions, the argument is circular ending with a reductio ad absurdum. Any 
statement, when taken to extremes, will be found to be self-contradictory.
