But lack of evidence, if indeed evidence is lacking, is no grounds for atheism.  No one thinks there is good evidence for the proposition that there are an even number of stars; but also, no one thinks the right conclusion to draw is that there are an uneven number of stars.  The right conclusion would instead be agnosticism.
