Some of my atheist friends love Schellenberg's failed argument that if God exists, there would be no unbelief because God's love would compel Him to act in ways the atheist wants God to act to circumvent unbelief by providing proof. If God exists, He would do what we want God to do to prove His love, and He would remove all the garbage of this world and end all suffering.

In other words, applying this to human relationships, we set an expectation for each other. When one of us fails to meet the other's expectations, that means we don't exist. And if anyone believes in our existence, they're dumb.

I'd like to write more but my wife asked me to take out the trash just now.

"Do this to prove you love me," she said. "If you don't get rid of our trash, you don't exist."
