Trying to prove that God or indeed any event defined to be outside normal physics does not exist is the same as attempting to prove that it does. Both require assumptions which by their very nature cannot be proven. And in logic if one refutes the assumptions then the proof no longer has any value. This is of course different then taking a given proof, any proof, and invalidating it. Either because the proof is badly formed or because, as above, the assumptions are rejected. It is of course not up to the person that rejected an assumption to then prove the assumption false. Rather it is up to the original author of the proof to then validate the assumption to the reader. Additionally one often forgets or attempts to ignore than one does not actually need to be a theist, agnostic or atheist. Humans are more flexible than that because they can choose to simply ignore the question altogether. Similar to ignoring who will win a national sport championship at the start of a season.
