His "positive" statement is not a positive .. he is not assuming there is something .. he is saying there is not.
We have no reason to think there is .. there is nothing showing the claim of an afterlife as true.
Are you being serous ?
Yes, that is a positive statement...a statement that there is knowledge of something, that something is that he knows there is no afterlife.
not positive in the feel good sense, positive in the addition of knowledge...he knows a truth, he has a proof.
the wording can get confusing...basically, if you claim a positive (a belief), then you should show the proof for that claim...if you claim a negative
(non-belief), your fine.
There is no evidence of an afterlife = a negative statement requiring no proof...
There is no afterlife = a positive statement requiring proof to back your claim up.
