An appeal to ignorance is a commonly used counter-argument by theists. The argument is there is no proof against X(god) so X(god exists). The problem is some people claim that saying " There is no evidence for there being a god so I do not believe" is also an appeal to ignorance. I am not sure if it is because I believe that the existence of god would be the claim. I say that because the idea of a god is taught and a human is born atheist. Could someone please explain to me whether saying there is a god or saying that there is not is the claim. And also if disbelief of a claim due to lack of evidence is also an appeal to ignorance.
