Anchoring an argument for the massively unlikely existence of god, on the bedrock of (lack of) evidence, is guaranteed to defeat all attempts at theistic metaphysical casuistry and general fuckwittery.

There's two parts to that argument though. Usually a theist will reply, "Well what evidence would convince you?" At which point one usually needs to demonstrate that God fails even to meet the standards required for a valid hypothesis, like logical consistency and falsifiability for instance.
