“The theist position is that a deity exists“
Actually it’s completely unnecessary for this to be the Theist position. Certainly in arguments Theist posit that God exists. Atheist do the same thing.
The actual Theist position however is nothing more or less than a lack of belief in the non-existence of God/s. No claim is actually necessary but claims are made none the less.
I can simply say I don’t believe God does not exist. That is a lack of belief altogether.
How is this actually different from the atheist position concerning the burden of proof? Seems identical to me.
