"The burden of proof always rest on those who make a positive assertion."(?) That is plainly ridiculous. The burden of proof falls on the person with the most to lose. If I were to positively assert that your house is on fire, the gravity of the consequences (should my assertion be true) would surely motivate you to investigate my assertion, no? If not, you would be stupid, even if there might be only a slim chance that I'm telling the truth. The burden is NOT on me to prove it. I would expect the slightest possibility that an eternal hell might exist would motivate a thinking person to investigate every trace of possible evidence of its veracity? Not to sit back like Etherlady and say "it's not my job..."
