Teaching we have no hard proof of God is fact.
That's what most atheists assert, very few would be so bold as to claim there definitely isn't a God. Many make claims on the existence of a
specific God like Zeus or Yahweh though.
Teaching God does not exist is a theory.
You're clearly confused about what the word theory means. Teaching God definitely does not exist is not a theory, its an arrogant assertion. A theory
is a unifying framework for a group of facts or laws within a given field of study, it can also refer to the field itself as in Music Theory or Atomic
It could also be said the idea that God does exist is a theory.
Nope. The idea that a God exists not a theory. However the statement that a God DOES exist (not just the idea of one) is a baseless assertion just
like the statement that a God definitely does not exist. As I said though the vast majority of atheists do not claim absolute certainly about the
non-existence of God.
What you are attacking here is a straw man of atheism. Indeed if you had read the OP you'd see that Dawkins wants to teach the kids skepticism and an
evidence based approach NOT absolute certainty about the existence or non-existence of God.
I don't hate using the internet meme, your post is indeed FAIL.
