Argument From Ignorance of Existance
My Muslim friend hit me with this today, and I know where he's going with it:
"Let�s say hypothetically you and I were the only human beings on earth. The only ones. Lets say you resided somewhere in South America, and I resided somewhere in Europe. We�ve never experienced each other existence. Because you�ve never saw me, does that mean I don�t exist? I may not exist in your mind, but I do exist and you perceive it not. Now it would be rational for you to think I didn�t exist, and it would be rational for me to think you did exist. Do you agree?"
The problem is, is I can't form the proper argument against it. I see the problems with it, but any answer I reply with sounds like babble, since I just... can't... forumulate... the... answer... Can anyone articulate a response to it that isn't long-winded? Mine are.
