I would say with most things you can't prove they don't exist.
even if it is likely they don't.
for instance it is highly unlikely a 15 foot man exists.
But you can't prove the 15 foot man doesn't exist, just because you think it's unlikely.
He could live in a jungle or in a cave. Just because no one has seen him doesn't disprove
his existence.
It's like that with many things, aliens, religion,cryptids, etc.

So, you say, they probably (or maybe almost certainly) don't exist and forget about them.  You have enough business doing what you have to do with things that do exist.

Rediculous. Yes you cannot proove a negative this is true.. Double negatives always have problems, but rational people do not need the aggregate to dictate truth by plural reasoning to what they know is true. Some things do not lend themselves to repeatability through demand.

some people  do  not  lend  themselves to  repeatability  through  demands ...  the  soul  seeks  who  it  is...  by  seeing  what  it  is  not ...   there  is  only  the  limitation  of  the imagination  that  digital answers  have  exceptions...

the  better  your  answers  ,  the  more  questions  are spawned ...  precsion is not  the  goal ,  it  is  the  means ...

nobody is really interested in proving god 'exist's

all they're interested in is to prove that 'someone else's god don't exist
