First, the guy says there is no evidence for God. It would be nice if he elaborated more on this as it seems to me as though there is plenty of evidence for God.
It depends on what you accept as evidence. If you accept the bible, then yes, there is evidence for God. If you accept the Quran, then yes, there is evidence for Allah. If you accept the Torah... well, you get the point.
But what the atheist community talks about here is the real world evidence for God. And for that, we differ in terms of what constitutes 'evidence'. You might say, "look at everything around you, how can you deny that all of this was created by God!" and believe that you've provided evidence. To someone who does no accept your version of god, however, your claim is equally as flawed as the man who says "look at everything around you, how can you deny that Allah is great!".
However, I’m sure some people will never be convinced no matter how much evidence is presented.
Yes, Christians are like that. There's almost nothing we can do about it. We try hard, but faith can be an insurmountable barrier. As an agnostic atheist who is very, VERY sure the Christian God is not real, but only moderately sure that there is no form of god at all, I have no such problem, as I am not tied down by faith. For someone who has devoted their life to believing in the Christian nonsense, it can be a nightmare just to consider they might be wrong. They often think that believing in God is a great thing, so no matter what evidence you bring against it, you can't get past that. Very frustrating. Religious faith is such an awful thing.
Additionally, when presented with evidence several people I know have dismissed it without even considering it.
Can you present your evidence so that we may consider it then? And please be aware... considering your evidence is not the same as accepting it as proof of what you are claiming.
Secondly, he makes a point that he’s never seen Heaven and implies that is why he doesn’t believe in God.
There is no evidence of Heaven, zach. None. Zero. Zilch. There is exactly the same amount of evidence for Heaven that there is for Valhalla. While this fact is not enough on it's own to form the opinion that God is not real, it is one fact among millions of facts that when compiled DOES allow for a reasonable doubt conclusion that the God of the bible is false.
It is possible that the guy has never been to a foreign country before, let’s say Japan. If you were to ask him if he believes in a place called Japan he would probably say yes. He has never been there, but he is trusting the reports of others, such as those who make maps. He has never seen the country, he only can go by what others have told him. I realize the comparison is not perfect but hopefully you get the point.
If you are going to give a flawed comparison, then don't expect people to be swayed by it. You are right in that it's flawed. It's flawed for many reasons, most notably that we know land exists and we know other countries exist. Most of us have seen people from other countries.
Can you point to heaven on a map? Or a place similar to heaven? How about a place near heaven? Can you show me someone who's been to heaven or came from heaven? And please don't say the bible here because it's just not useful and you know it. If you're going to do that, then I am going to point to the Harry Potter books as evidence for Hogwarts castle.
Finally, he has a very misconstrued view of God.
Did you ever stop to consider that maybe it's you with the misconstrued view? That maybe the God you WISH were true is the one you believe in? After all, you just said you don't believe God created evil or bad things... why? Because it doesn't fit with the vision of God you wish were true, or because you have actual evidence that God didn't do it? I'm going to guess the former.
