One does NOT have to show scientifically any of this, since it is the onus of the one MAKING the claim that God does exist. The demand for proof before accepting the argument is the default position. Since you don't believe in Vishnu, then your rejection of Vishnu's existence must be a religion, right? You haven't 'scientifically' proven Vishnu does not exist.

No sooner had I expressed my differences with the president’s announcement supporting same-sex “marriage” than a young man named Collin posted on my Facebook page, “You have to leave your stupid religious dogma behind when talking about state and national issues. You are basing your objection to homosexual marriage on the Bible which would be violating the American principle of separation of church and state.”

Not only is this the opposite of what our Founding Fathers intended, but it is also completely hypocritical, since Collin voiced no objection to the president pointing to his religious beliefs in support of same-sex “marriage.”
