It is funny that atheists will never ever ever not a single one ever be straightforward with their apologetics.
Whenever they think up an exciting new idea, they rush to start a thread claiming no theist will ever give a straight answer to their game-changing questions. The hope is they can goad someone into giving a straight answer so they can unleash the fury of whatever trump card turned up this week. And this applies to every single atheist in the world.
Because sweeping generalizations are a good foundation for every logical argument.
Now, please shower me with your evidence of this mass refusal. I'm expecting at least a few dozen theists stubbornly refusing to answer your question straightforwardly, and zero agreeing. Then, and only then, will it be appropriate to discuss why they do so, if in fact they so do.
