There is only two things

... that qualify as proof: conclusive evidence (Empirical Proofs) and deductive argument (Anecdotal Proofs).
The mode to do so is by means of what is known as "the chain".
In order to produce C; the thing to be (dis)proven, you need to do so
A : in an unbroken (thus logically valid) chain of establised facts/events
B : by eliminating all other possibilities (rendering what remains sound)
When not A and B, no C.
An assertion without evidence can therefore be dismissed the same way since those who assert must prove.

- can the theist construct a deductive argument showing the biblical God exists?
- can the atheist construct a deductive argument showing the biblical God non-existent?
Well, there you go then.
