Comedian Louis C.K. Says Atheism Is Illogical

On an episode of Saturday Night Live, the comedian Louis C.K. shared his beliefs about the impossibility of atheism:

I'm not religious. I don't know if there is a god. That's all I can say honestly. I don't know. Some people can say that they know there isn't a god. That's a weird thing you can say you know. "There's no god." "Are you sure?" "Yea, there's no god." "How do you know?" "Because I didn't see him."
"But how do you know? There's a vast universe. You can see for about 100 yards when there's not a building in the way. How can you possibly know? Did you look everywhere? Did you look in the downstairs bathroom?" "No, I haven't seen him yet." "Well, I haven't seen [the film] 12 Years as a Slave yet, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist."
