Proving a Universal Negative

Science is ill-equipped to prove universal negatives by virtue of the fact that its participants are not omnipresent and have limited resources. As a result, atheists have not basis beyond faith for the foundation of their belief:

The burden of proof lies with the atheists to prove that there is no God. Because they believe only in what they can see, they have to go everywhere in the universe, throughout time and see for themselves that God doesn't exist. Until they can do this, their assertion that there is no God is merely an expression based on faith just like a religious belief.

On the otherhand, significant "evidence" exists to the contrary in the person and work of Jesus Christ and the manifestation of a highly complex and ordered creation that reflects that Master's Design.
