The onus is on the one who claims something to be true to prove it is so, not on other people to prove it isn't. Fairies at the bottom of the garden? Bronze age superstitions [that have led to more than 2,000 years of guilt, hatred and murder]? Elvis is alive and living in a trailer park on Mars? The essential difference is that only the first and last are just nonsense.The second is dangerous nonsense. Wilson fails miserably to anwer Dawkins' argument.. Instead of writing a book, he could have saved everyone a deal of time by simply saying "I am a believer, that makes me right."
