    It's 'per se' not 'per say'. Just letting you know because I used to make that mistake and it embarrassed me when I figured it out and I know you hear a lot of complicated words and want to use them and then not exactly spell them right so you might appreciate some help on that front.

    That wasn't meant to be condescending or anything negative really just want to help

    It always made sense to me, never really herd anyway denounce that type of logic, until now. xD

    Just the way I was thought to argue in school, while I was on the debate team. "You can not prove something, with nothing"

    Are you really insisting on dismissing all hypothetical analogies on the basis of "it didn't actually happen so therefore it can't be used in an argument"?

    "Do you consider it 'faith' [not to believe] in tiny invisible purple unicorns?" It's kinda hard to word what I am trying to convey, but I will look through some of my logic textbooks, and see if they have a better definition.

    That has no relation to my argument whatsoever.

    Sorry, I was using my mobile phone. I ment to say you can't prove something using the absence of something. Hence the argument, of the unicorns does not satisfy, for it tries to prove something, with the absence of something. (That is something not real)
    PS: My phone changed "By" to "My" :p

    Okay the sentence "you have to make a conjection my the presence of something" makes no sense. Conjection isn't even a word, so I'm really, really not sure what you're trying to say here, lol. Makes it impossible to reply to your argument because it obscures the point you're making - why is the analogy faulty? It follows the same logic. If atheism is a 'faith', since you can't prove that God doesn't exist, then not believing in tiny invisible purple unicorns are a 'faith' since you can't prove that they don't exist. If your logic can be easily applied to something so ridiculous, then either the analogy is faulty or your logic is faulty. You really can't just say "what you said seems ridiculous so I'm dismissing it".

    To be fair, I played around for a long time with the idea that atheism is faith too but I ended up dismissing it for this exact reason.
