Apparently, there is a rumour doing the rounds that atheists ask for a sign from a god that atheists don't believe exists.
I am here now to set you clear about this.
Atheists do NOT ask for a sign from a nonexistent god.
Allegedly believers ask for a sign and when none is forthcoming they pass it off as god working in mysterious ways.
Which is insanely funny.
No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says: He is always convinced that it says what he means.

This is a bit of a No True Scotsman fallacy.

As an atheist (perhaps not a True Atheist), in conversations where people were actively trying to convert me, I have pointed out the lack of one clear sign that their loving God exists.

Also from another potential not true atheist, granted his word choice is "evidence" instead of "sign:" http://www.godofevolution.com...

Equivocation and obfuscation somehow justifies your view? Good for you.
