# It is impossible to claim that God doesn't exist.
Only to opine it.

# No.
It's impossible (for now) to prove that gods don't exist. It's perfectly possible to claim it.

But then, since no-one's shown any evidence that gods do exist, it's a very safe assumption to believe that they don't.

# What do you mean "for now"?
Nothing can be finally proven. All proof has the status of a very safe assumption, and nothing more than that. Arguments about the existence of God always contain a certain amount of trash consisting of "there's no proof He doesn't exist" and "there's no proof He does". All those parts of the argument are a waste of space, whichever side they come from.

# For now.
How do you know that nothing can be finally proven? That's a statement that you'll need to prove.
Who knows what people will know in the future? I wouldn't dismiss the possibility that, in the distant future, everything that can be know will be known.

It seems a little bit presumptuous to dictate what people will know for sure millennia from now.

# Hahahaha.
Oh, OK. I didn't realise you were thinking so far ahead.
Sounds like a hellish future, though.

# "Fact"
HAHAHAH! You fail at "fact".

Also what does "opine" mean?

# and it's the exact same for people who claim that god does exist, except...
that the people who originally invented the god story were primitive and had fuck all actual knowledge of nature and how it works... hence, they thought a magic man done it.
