I have read a few posts on the ‘one less god’ proposition. Stephen F Roberts originally put it,
“I contend we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”elsewhere he says,“We are all atheists, some of us just believe in fewer gods than others.”
There several ways to answer this stupid argument and the article does a great job explaining their strengths and weaknesses using logic.
