The Burden of Proof

This Proof must come prior to all other arguments as it is the most basic rule to reason. It is frequently and mistakenly asserted by theists that Atheists must prove that god(s) does not exist with questions like, 'Can you prove there is no God?' A simple formulation of the burden-of-proof concept is that the party making the claim has the burden to justify or prove his claim, not the party that questions the claim.
